Hi. We are traveling with our baby this summer, she'll be 11 mo. She has traveled with us in the states by car (14 hours one way and ten days in two diff hotels) and did great.
I know nothing about Scandinavian areas except that I will get to see my cousin in Malmo who moved there 7 years ago. I got to plan the last EU trip pre baby so my husband's turn and this is where he wanted to go. Can you help me with some highlights? Obviously, this will be a laid back trip but any advice will be great. I'm sure my husband has somethings planned but I would like to start researching areas. This is what our trip looks like so far.
Fly into Copenhagen direct from the states!!! Arrive around 3pm on a Wed and find a hotel for the night. Any ADVICE for hotels? 150 to 300. We need it to be safe, clean and probably near eateries, stores etc. Maybe chose one thing to see in Copenhagen(tours etc).
Day 1 to 3: The next day(Thurs) we will probably get a train to Malmo to see my cousin so don't really need any advice about Malmo. Not sure we will stay more than a day or two.
Day 4: Saturday. Next we will figure out how to get from Malmo to Norway. ADVICE? I saw that there was a ferry boat from Copenhagen to Oslo with rooms that might be fun. My cousin suggested taking the train back to CPH and flying to Oslo. We are flying out of Oslo so we can really start at any point as long as we end up in Oslo.
Sunday. First day in Norway. We have 9 days. Seems like a lot now that I am writing it down. Would love to hear your suggestions. My husband has Rick's Norway book and I am just starting to read about the area.
Do you think we should spend a couple of days in Copenhagen?
Maybe Wed to Friday take the train to Malmo stay with my cousin Friday to Monday then head to Norway? I would love to go straight there but my cousin will be returning from their Croatia vacation the day we arrive so wanted to give them time to settle in.
I don't know much about Denmark but since we will be there, maybe spend a day or two.
The trip has to start in Copenhagen, has to include a couple of days in Malmo to visit family and has to be mostly Norway sight seeing ending us in Oslo.
Would love any advice and in the mean time, I will be reading all the great suggestions.
