Looking to plan a trip to Scandinavia in late May 2014 for 7-12 days including Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo, Bergen, and the Norway in a Nutshell trip. I have traveled to Europe quite a bit, but am a first timer to Scandinavia. Hubby's first time out of US. We can get great airfares but looks like all of Scandinavia is quite expensive. What are recommendations for must see and also what to avoid. How many days in each? I am thinking an overnight in Voss or Flam during the Norway in a Nutshell from Oslo to Bergen would be good.
Any recommendations for reasonably priced accommodation? Anyone use the voucher/checks/coupons for hotels? Looks like several require a coupon plus an additional fee.
We are general interest travelers: history, culture, art, churches, shopping, and eating. Afterwards, we will be heading to Paris for a week.
Any recommendations and advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help!
