Scandinavia Trip


I'm taking a trip to Scandinavia with my family for next summer and we're starting to plan. We'd like to hit Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and St. Petersburg. Any suggestions on what to see or what cities to visit would be great. Thinking we'll fly into Bergen, Norway (hopefully with a lay over in Iceland) and fly out of St. Petersburg Russia.

Thanks so much for your help!

First of all; how much time do you intend to spend for this trip? There are so many nice things to see and do so a rough estimate time wise would be good.

Anyway, a few ideas to start with. Based on that you'll fly in to Bergen:

- Bergen and the fjords to start with.

- Bergen to Oslo by train, very scenic route: visitnorway.com/en/…

- Spend some time in Oslo, take the overnight ferry to Copenhagen http://www.dfdsseaways.us/?src=UK_DropDown

- Spend some time in Copenhagen, then take the train to Stockholm: www.sj.se/start/startpage/index.form?l=en

- Spend some time in Stockholm then take the ferry to Helsinki, lovely scenery in the archipelago:



- Spend some time in Helsinki then take the train to St Petersburg:


That's just the basics, depending on how much time you'll spend loads of things/sights/activities can be added. Happy planning! :-)
