Back in 2020, we were forced to cancel our grand Scandinavian adventure about 6 weeks before we left. Arrrhhh. Now, I'm back to planning with all the logistics and information that I had before but refining as I go. I can't help but tweak what was a really nice itinerary into something a little different based upon new flight and pricing information. Originally, we'd planned to go to Gothenburg and explore the west coast before going to Norway.. Now, I've been comparing Uppsala with Bohuslen and Uddevalla. I'm a fan of rugged coast. We're planning a few days in Stockholm and it seems like an easy visit. Has anybody got a synopsis of their comparative charms? Is seems like one or the other but is it really????
There is always room for improvement!
If you like rugged landscapes the west coast archipelago might be a better option. It is more rocky. The Stockholm archipelago, especially the inner one, has more islands covered in forests. But if you get to the outer Stockholm archipelago, it will be more rugged and barren.
