Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki in February?

We are two senior citizens, male, scheduling an auto trip through these cities in mid February, 2000. What is the weather like? Are hotels cheaper? The people and cultures are fantastic, we know! Any suggestions on budget hotels?

Check out Eurohostel (http://www.eurohostel.fi) right near the City Dock in downtown Helsinki. The rooms are clean and it's cheap (about $25.00/night) if you don't mind not having your own bathroom. Also try emailing
[email protected], they can give you current listing and rates on tourist class hotels.

For accomendation in Stockholm try this site: http://www.stoinfo.se/england/accomm...a-city-en.html

Most of the hostels there are very centrally located.

Weather in Stockholm in February... hrm, actually the worst month of the year actually. Cold, around -5C to -10C and the time of the year we are all getting very tired of the snow and ice... Stockholm wintertime and Stockholm summertime is two different cities, the summer is much nicer! Still. less tourist during the winter!

There's an ice hotel in Finland which would be exciting (at least to visit for a *cold* drink). The northern lights are unbelievable; best the higher up you go. Dark and cold of course, but dogsledding, icefishing, reindeer lassoing, and saunas and grog make up for it. Bundle up and have fun!!

There is also an ice hotel in Sweden, in Jukkas Jarvi. Have a look at their website:
