Please help with my Scandinavian itinery

Jump to last reply

We are two fit seventy-plus year old Australians and planning an independent tour of Scandinavia of 31 days. We fly into Helsinki on August 8 and stay 4 nights, then take the ferry to Stockholm and stay 3 nights. We plan to take the train to Goteborg for a 2 night stay. We're not sure of what to do next. Travelling by train, we have 6 nights set aside for Denmark including 3 in Copenhagen . Should we just stay in Copenhagen for the whole time and do day trips or has someone another suggestion. We want to take the overnight ferry to Oslo for a 3 night stay and then take the "NIN" route to Bergen with a stop at Flam on the way. We already have our accommodation in Flam, but how do we book the various legs of this tour in the most cost effective way? After 2 nights in Bergen we will take the Hurtigruten cruise to Kirkenes. We plan a 1 night stay at either Inari or Rovaniemi and then take the train back to Helsinki and fly home the next day.
Does in seem that a Scanrail Pass would be cost effective and what extras, if any, do we get with It?
We could change the number of days we stay in Stockholm, Copenhagen and/or Oslo. Any suggestions?
Besides the usual site seeing activities in new countries we also enjoy have an interest in parks and gardens and the great outdoors.
Many thanks in advance for any tips and advice.
