Northern Europe itinerary logistics

Jump to last reply

Here are the places we'd like to see in our three to four week vacation end September to mid October
Helsinki/Fiskars (the village not the company)
Vilnius (we have friends there)
Poland's Lubuskie lake district (optional, but if we would like to fit it in, if possible)

Obviously we have at least two flights (to the region and back), but are there ways to see most of this without flying to and fro?

We're thinking of starting in Oslo (one night there then up to Bergen) and finishing in Helsinki as there are good international flight options in both places (in case we decide to start and finish things off in Paris, London, or Munich).

Favorite hotel and restaurant suggestions welcome too. We like both unfussy country inns and modern design hotels (but to us, "design" does not mean laminate floors, stark white decor and incomprehensible shower fittings).
