Whole day in Helsinki.Monday 17th
Morning and afternoon in Helsinki. Ferry to Stockholm (leaves at 17:30) <- cheaper than flying and includes a nights accommodation.Tuesday 18th
Arrive about 09:30. Whole day in Stockholm.Wednesday 19th
Whole day in Stockholm.Thursday 20th
Morning in Stockholm. Evening train to Oslo. Night out in Oslo (or straight to bed).Friday 21st
Whole day in Oslo.Saturday 22nd
Whole day in Oslo.Sunday 23rd
Morning in Oslo. Fly home early afternoon.TL;DR
Helsinki: About 2 days. Ferry to Stockholm.
Stockholm: About 2.5 days. Train to Oslo.
Oslo: About 2.5 Days.So whadda'ya think?
I know I'm not going to be able to see everything, but with work and money I only have the 9 days. I could probably spend a lifetime in each city alone but thought this would give me a nice Scandinavian taster.
Hoping the ferry won't be too bad but it's looking the most economical way to travel and with me *hopefully* sleeping through the night it'll save on having to pay for a nights sleep. If I fly I'll still lost out on that evening with getting to and from the airport and the flight itself.
If anyone has anything to add in I'd really appreciate it before I book it.
p.s. If anyone can offer me a couch to sleep on for any of the nights of the trip, I'd love you forever XD
