Title: Copenhagen

Country: Denmark

 

We flew from Helsinki Finland to Copenhagen Denmark in April of 2019. Copenhagen is a wonderful and fun city to visit. It is a city of bicycles and people. The people are very friendly unless you step into their bike lanes. The best way to see this city is the Hop-On-Hop-Off Busses and Boats. We take them around to see everything first then go back and get off at stops we want to visit. There are two lines available. We took the Stromma line. They had a special that gave us two days for the price of one. The busses and boat available on Stromma are:

 

  • Red Mermaid Tour (Bus)
  • Purple Christiania Tour (Bus)
  • Green Carlsberg Tour (Bus)
  • Blue Boat Tour (Boat)

 

A great place to visit and have lunch is the Reffen – Street Food market. It is a group of shipping containers that are food stalls, beer & wine stalls, gelato stalls, etc. There are picnic tables everywhere to sit and enjoy your lunch outdoors. Some stalls give free samples. The food is not expensive considering this is Denmark.

Things to see:

 

  • Christiania (Little Amsterdam)
  • Queens Palace
  • Little Mermain
  • Reffen (see Hop on Hop off above
  • Kissing Bridge
  • Canal Boat Ride (See Hop-on-Hop-off above)
  • Carlsberg Brewery (was closed being remodeled when we were there)
  • Malmo Sweden (acroos a bridge – you can take train)
  • Botanical Gardens
  • Rosenborg castle (across from Botanical Gardens)
  • Tivoli Gardens (amusement Park)
  • Central Train Station with its clock

Viking Line Overnight Cruise from Stockholm to Helsinki

Title: Viking Line Overnight Cruise Stockholm Sweden to Helsinki Finland
Country: Sweden & Finland

The best and most enjoyable way to travel from Stockholm Sweden to Helsinki Finland is on the Viking Line overnight Cruise. We sailed on the MS Gabriella. The ship is large with entertainment, gambling, fashion shows, restaurants and games. We upgraded our room and got the breakfast buffet included. We also pre bought our dinner in the main buffet room.

Both dinner and breakfast had a wide variety of food to choose from. The dinner included alcoholic beverages as well as coffee, tea and soft drinks. The travel was overnight and very smooth. In the morning we docked in Helsinki.

Come ride with us on this wonderful cruise:

Hellsten Helsinki Senate Hotel – Helsinki Finland

The Hellsten Helsinki Senate was a wonderful place to stay for our vacation in Helsinki Finland. We had a wonderful suite with a large living room, kitchen, full bath, large bedroom and even our own sauna. It is located on an island with a easy walk to shopping, restaurants, the market, boats and the Central Train Station. There is also a tram that runs from the corner right to the train station.

We arrived on the Viking overnight cruise from Stockholm Sweden. It docked on the island a few short blocks from the hotel. When we left to catch our flight to Copenhagen, Denmark, we walked to the Central Train Station. There we caught a train right into the airport. Public transportation was inexpensive, fast and very convenient.

TheYouTube video below shows this great hotel:

Scandinavia

We took a 3-week trip to Scandinavia in April 2019. We flew from Florida to Frankfurt Germany. From Frankfurt:

  • we flew to Oslo Norway
  • Took a scenic train over snow covered mountains from Oslo to Bergen Norway
  • Few from Bergen to Stockholm, Sweden
  • Took a Viking overnight cruise from Stockholm to Helsinki, Finland
  • Few from Helsinki to Copenhagen Denmark
  • Flew back to Frankfurt to return to Florida USA

It was cool in the beginning of April and we had snow flurries in Stockholm. Helsinki, which is the farthest north of all the cities we visited, was the warmest. Easter in Copenhagen was warm and beautiful.

Our thoughts on this trip:

  • Norway was our favorite followed by Finland and Denmark.
  • The scenic train ride from Oslo to Bergen, Norway is a MUST do
  • The Viking cruise from Stockholm to Helsinki was a pleasure and a must do
  • We will talk about what we saw, what we ate and the great hotels we stayed in
  • If Scandinavia is not on your bucket list, it should be

We are walkers and all of these cities are walkable. They also have great metros and lots of bicycles to rent. Taxis are very expensive so we will talk about fast, easy and safe public transportation from the airports to the central train stations. Hop-On-Hop-Off Busses and boats are a great way to get oriented and see all the main sites.

Scandinavia has a reputation for being expensive and it can be. We saw everything, ate well and travelled fast between cities and within cities for an average of $100/day for two people. Our hotels cost on average $100/day as well.

I will be doing a VLOG on how to travel cheap soon. Look for it.

Now, sit back and travel with us to these four wonderful countries:

Ciao
