Scandinavia Visit in August

Jump to last reply

Hi - my husband and I are planning a trip to Norway, Sweden, Denmark in August 2015. We are 50 yrs old and we will be taking my Mother along (72). The idea of the trip is really to let my Mother visit her heritage. We'd like a combination of city highlights and small villages/countryside/nature. We are all fit and in good shape (for our ages) with no limitations to walking tours, hiking, etc....we only have 7 nights/8 days and will be traveling from the west coast of US. My initial thoughts are:

Day 1 - arrive Stockholm - couple of hours in Old Town and sleep
Day 2 - a full day in Stockholm - looking for suggestions (Viking Ship Museum - Cruise around the islands? Or something else)
Day 3 - travel to Oslo Norway in car? By train? Fly?
Day 4 - 6 Norway in a Nutshell, Fjords, Bergen?
Day 7 Copenhagen (train - car - fly from Norway to Copenhagen?)
Day 8 Fly home

Any feedback or suggestions are appreciated. Thank you
