Scandinavia Itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are traveling to Scandinavia for the first time this summer, flying in and out of Stockholm for two weeks. We will be traveling with two young children, so we'd love to keep long transit times to a minimum once we arrive (though are certainly willing to do it if necessary or worthwhile)—they're good travelers overall. Right now we envision staying in Stockholm for 3 or 4 nights upon arrival to enjoy the city and get used to the time adjustment before setting off, but I'm just getting started looking around.

One idea would be to head to Copenhagen next—either directly, by train (or air) and then taking our time to drive back to Stockholm through the Glass Country.

But it seems like a bit of a shame not to try and make it over to Norway to see the Fjords. (I always assume we will return one day, but who knows when?)

Beyond the capitals, what small towns around Stockholm and Copenhagen are your favorite? What's the transit time like between the Fjords and one of the Capitals—any suggestions about whether or not to include on this trip and, if yes, how you would connect either Stockholm or Copenhagen to that region? Finally, all this assumes we are pretty much skipping over Oslo.

Opinions? Suggestions? I appreciate any advice!
