Hi everybody

Just wondering if anyone has travelled Scandinavia by themselves?

I am considering going there before my Best of USA contiki tour.

My feeling is that its generally quite a safe place

Any feedback????

    Scandinavia is very safe.

    I’ve lived all my life here and haven’t had any problems anywhere. :-)

    I usually go everywhere by myself even late at night and haven’t experienced any kinds of harassment, threats, etc.

    Just keep an open mind and I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful time!

    Greets,

    Thanks guys
    The problem is i’m planning to go there in november – there are no tours operating at that time.. it’ll be really really really cold, but still beautiful and good skiing i’m sure.

    there are plenty of sightseeing tours, but no one offers any longer tours (understandably)

    thanks again

    Here are a few websites for you….

    for more, you can google e.g. “winter travel scandinavia” and there are plenty of others.

    Have you tried asking a travel agent in your own town? They might have some good offers for you. :-)

    Yes norway looks extremely expensive… thats why i’m not staying there for very long – haha. Hostel accomodation is nearly double the price of london hostel accomodation, and i found london to be quite expensive. Atleast the airfare between the cities are very cheap – $89 one way!!!
