A friend of mine, 26 years old Chinese girl, is planning to travel alone to Stockholm. She found a cheap flight landing in Arlanda at 23:20. I told her perhaps it's best if she takes a taxi into town straight to the hotel, because I'm not sure how safe it is for a single girl to use public transportation late at night in Stockholm. Or do you think it's fine if she takes a train from Arlanda into town (I guess she would arrive after midnight), and then a taxi to the hotel?
A taxi from Arlanda to…
The decision has been taken yet for a walk in the Kungsleden trail. Now, the question is about the dates. I prefer to avoid Juyly and August, more crowded by people and midgies. In June, days are longer, the rivers for crossing higher, the birds with more activity...
Opinions will be welcomed.
So we are looking at doing the following
Arrive Oslo early AM June 10 --full day sightsee
June 11 Norway in a Nutshell
June 12 (poss 13) Bergen
June 14 Bus from Bergen to Alesund
June 15 Day trip to Geiranger (either Round Trip bus to Geiranger from Alesund with 1 hr on Geirangerfjiord or Day trip on Hurtigruten boat to Geiranger and back to Alesund
Then fly June16 to Stockholm
Here are my questions
This plan leaves us not much time in Alesund are we best to leave the two days in Bergen or take one…
I stayed On Grinda last week, in their rustic, woodland cabins. The island is great and less than an hour by boat from Stockholm. Unfortunately, on our second evening, our cabin had been surrounded by a group 20 + in cabins all around us, who proceeded to have a dance party until 3 am. No longer idyllic, peaceful, woodland retreat but nightmare noise. The organisation that runs and lets the cabins, appears to have no regard for quiet solitude. So check before you visit who will be next to you!
For next year, I hope to take a walk for the north of Sweden. Just arrived the guide, it's supossed the only one in English, http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0953863190/ref=s9_simh_gw_p14_d28_i1?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=desktop-2&pf_rd_r=0QEW8SHHTZC7WBRVCPVF&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=577048407&pf_
It would be an euphemism then their maps aren't the best in the world. At a postal stamp size, it's difficult to know the reason for printing them. The text, looks better. Although the trail…
I'm making a trip to Copenhagen and Stockholm in september and would love some advice on the itinary.
