Hi, I am still struggling to plan properly. I also have to change and have only 5 days of holiday available and also the Interrail is also valid only for those 5 days... in any case I have only today to decide.
The main reason I want to go to Norway are the fjords and the Bergenbanen train, which is said to be the most beautiful and scenic train ride in the world. But I dont want to end up too stressed by not being able to enjoy any of the outdoor stuff.
Note I will be staying at my friends' place in Helsingborg.
Option 1: All Sweden
Day 1 - arrive at Copenhagen, brief city tour, sleep in Helsingborg
Day 2 - brief visit of Helsingborg and Goteborg, sleep in Helsingborg
Day 3 - visit Malmo, then train to Stockholm, night tour, sleep in Stockholm
Day 4 - continue visiting Stockholm, e.g. archipelago, then train to Kalmar or Ystad, see Ales Stones, maybe sleep somewhere there or go to friend in Helsingborg
Day 5 - return to UK via Germany
Option 2: Sweden + Norway
Day 1 - Skip Copenhagen, visit Malmo, Helsingborg, sleep in Helsingborg
Day 3 - Visit Bergen, take night train back to Oslo, then on to Stockholm
Day 4 - Visit Stockholm, archipelago, etc., then train to Malmo, sleep in Helsingborg
Day 5 - return to Uk via Germany
Any suggestions, criticism, alternatives, etc. hugely appreciated. As I said, I need to decide today or I will most likely cancel :-(
