Time in Helsinki & Oslo

Planning to go to Copenhagen, Oslo and Helsinki in addition to Stockholm and driving Estonia, Latvia & Lithuania on a 3wk trip. Trying to determine how much time to spend in Oslo and Helsinki. Oslo 1 day-Bergen area 2days back to Oslo for 1 day or need more time in Oslo before train to Stockholm? I've read that 1.5 days in Oslo is enough? We're taking the overnight ferry from Stockholm to Helsinki. Same question--how many days in Helsinki to get a good snapshot?

Thanks for your help

One day in Helsinki is enough to see the central highlights, and Rick's book does outline how to see it efficiently in that time. I personally didn't find Helsinki interesting enough to be worthy of more time (as opposed to Bergen, which is smaller but, to me, much nicer).

Harold, thanks for input. What about Turku? worth a trip ? Anything else we shouldn't miss?
