Scandinavian tour - first time!

Jump to last reply

OK, I've traveled a lot to the UK and to Ireland, but now we're finally branching out. We're planning a late May trip for two weeks (16 days) to Iceland, Denmark, and either Norway or Sweden. I'm not certain what at this point, but here's what we like:

We are in our 40s. We can walk for a while, but we're not in great shape. I love walking through woods, though, and photographing waterfalls, landscapes, historical things, crumbling stuff.

We are both fans of history, especially of the Vikings and such. Husband is very much into the Vikings show, but we've been into that period of history for a long time. Places used in filming the show as well as true historical places would be great. Longships, stave churches, etc. are all good.

I was born in Copenhagen, and have never been back, so that's a definite.

Iceland - we would love to see a glacier, waterfall, volcano, etc. I've heard of the Golden Circle tour, which sounds pretty cool, though we're not much for group tours. We prefer going on our own to the sites a tour would normally go. However, I realize in Iceland this is 4-wheel drive territory, and going on our own probably isn't wise.

Yes, I know we're trying to do 3 countries in 2 weeks, and that's BAD. However, my current job doesn't give more than two weeks a year for vacation, so I've got to work with what I've got. I am thinking 3 days each in Iceland and Denmark, and the rest in Norway and/or Sweden.

No need to go super far north for the midnight sun, though it might be cool if there are other reasons to go north.

I've read through many of the suggestions already here, but the majority are about NiN, and I'm not that interested in NiN - it seems to be nothing more than a service to help you arrange transport? I can do that myself :)

Thanks!
