SCANDINAVIA: what NOT to miss

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are going to Scandinavian countries end of June.We'll go with a group tour, visiting the capitals and fjord area in Norway. The tour co. provides some sightseeing and meals, but we have plenty of free time to explore on our own. Please help us "to fill in the blanks" with places of interest, interesting restaurants, unique shopping etc. We're in our 70s, and not very vigorous or adventurous (safe to omit hiking trips !).We enjoy travel & good food.This is our first trip to these areas.I'll try to make it as short as poss., but please be patient.
Here's a general outline of our itinerary with the tour co.:
Helsinki - city tour (Market & Senate Sq., the 'Rock' church).
Copenhagen - Christiansborg Palace, Nyhavn. Optional : Kronborg Castle & Gillelje.
Oslo- city tour (Karl Johans Gate, Slottet, Royal Palace, Vigeland)...
Oslo to Bergen : Norway in the Nutshell.
Bergen - Bryggen harbor, fish mkt.,Hakonshallen cerem. site.
Stockholm - city tour incl.Vasa Museum. Optional to Sigtuna & Uppsala.
I've done some research here, but nt. much on Scandinavia! Fodor has the best site with experienced travelers, and we hope some of you will take time to advise us. Many, many thanks ! I'm sorry it came out SO long...
