8 day itinerary of Sweden and Norway

Hi there . I am heading to Sweden and Norway with my husband and 2 adult sons the beginning of August for about 8 days . ( yes, it’s a rushed trip )we will be flying into Stockholm from Iceland . Our plan is to be in Stockholm as base and make one or two day trips and then head to Bergen ( not sure best scenic way to get to Bergen ). We then plan on staying a few nights there and then head to Oslo where we’ll fly home from. Certainly want to see fjords and wr are planning a glacier hike in Norway. Best day trip from Stockholm ? Best way to see fjords out of Bergen ? Best way to get to Oslo from
Bergen ? Any must sees ? Thanks so much . Any input is very welcomed !

How do you define best?

Also, eight days in total is a very rushed trip. You really won't have time to see much. But best, and most efficient use of your limited time, way to bet from Oslo to Bergen and to see fjords is in my opinion a NiN-version, maybe spending a night somewhere along the route.

Yes, it’s a short trip . Hard to get a time for my college kid and working kid to be able to coordinate and have time available . But it’s a trip we really want to do . Best I guess would be defined as people’s favorite destinations.. just places everyone has enjoyed . The nutshell might make most sense . Thx

For day trips from Stockholm, you might not have time for more than one. And it depends on what you're looking for. But you can consider a trip to Uppsala or a tour of the archipelago.

My suggestion for your trip would be:

  • Stockholm, 3 days (including a day trip one day)
  • Oslo, 1,5 days (half a day used for the train from Stockholm to Oslo)
  • Norway in a Nutshell, 2 days
  • Bergen, 1 day.

Thank you . We are flying out of Oslo to head home, so we need to head to Bergen first and then to Oslo . We were thinking of flying from Stockholm to Bergen. Thanks again

Icelandair flies to Bergen as well, so try to see if you can change the flight. That will save you a bit of backtracking.
