Planning this year's holiday. Quite drawn to travelling around Scandinavia, Oslo, Gothenburg, Malmo, Stockholm and surrounding islands, mountains, etc.
Looking at a family rail pass and doing it on the train, stopping off at interesting bits and a couple of week long stints without travelling so much and staying put.
Has anyone done anything similar (this isn't a climbing trip and we have 2 young children 1+4).
Finding an airbnb on one of the Stockholm archipelago could be one of the week long stay-puts. Saw the arctic circle train to Narvik but couldn't really tell if if was a fun thing to do or a trek to a dead end..
It's not a cheap option going to that part of the world so have you got tips about some money saving accommodation to leave us some budget for a few nights of (relative) luxury along the way?
In reply to George Fisher: I can add more later, but leaving it until August will massively increase available accommodation. Most Swedes, plus a lot of Danes holiday from mid summer through to the end of July.
Trains are cheaper than uk anyway, buy a family ticket. 2 adults and 2 kids travel for less than the cost of two singles.
Edit. Leave it past mid August and some tourist places will be winding down as the kids start back to school. (They finished school this and last week).
