    • Camping along Kungsleden

      Sweden May 4, 2015 at 1:35 AM

      In august i'm going to hike on the entire Kungsleden. I was wondering what would an appropriate tent be for such an adventure (i own an vango blade 200)? I read in a guide that you can camp anywhere on the entire trip, but now i'm getting some info that you must pay some fee. Are there any forbidden zones for camping (are there any signs)? Also I'm a bit worried about bears - are they any real danger? Thanks!

    • Finishing 4 days of hiking in Nikkaluotka, lodging/transportation options

      Abisko Nationalpark May 11, 2015 at 2:36 PM

      Hi, my 2 sons (11 and 9) and I are hiking from Abisko to Nikkaluotka in July. We've already booked the huts at Abiskojaure, Alesjaure and Vistas.

      When we get to Nikkaluotka (after 34 km day of hiking from Vistas), what do you suggest regarding lodging or transportation to Kiruna?

      Thanks,

      Roque

      Stockholm for 2 days

      Stockholm Apr 29, 2015 at 9:57 PM

      We are 9 of a family, including 1 Sr. Citizen 74 years, and 4 children (11, 12, 14, 18 year old).

      Arrive in Stockholm by cruise, on the 30th May morning.

      We are staying at the Radisson Blu Waterfront hotel. Should we proceed for some sight seeing from the cruise itself, before hotel check-in? How? How do we book minibus / van with English speaking driver / Guide?

      What do we do and see for the 2 days 30th, and 31st May?

      We fly to Bergen (Norway) on 1st June Morning. How to arrange transfer to airport also?

      I know that these are a lot of questions, but please do help.

      Thanks in advance.

    • Need suggestion and new friends :-)

      Stockholm May 6, 2015 at 6:42 AM

      Hi Virtual Tourists, nice to meet u :-)

      I'm a 32-years old Italian boy who likes so much travels, I'm going to plan a journey in Stockolm from 26 to 29 of June 2015 and I'm looking for new friends to meet during the journey, and possibily suggestions for accomodations.

      To be honest this is the first time for me in VirtualTourist site, I used and updated my world travels in another famous site, so I'm going to create my profile to set as much as possible informations about me and my travels. I'm a serious person who search only to see new places and do new experiences with friends, that's all!!! Also, I work and live in Rome in a nice house where I can host and reciprocate any trip with my friends around the world.

      I work like Computer Engineer in a wonderful company in Rome, the first in Italy that follow Anglo-Saxon kind of company, and I'm very enthusiast for my work that gives me many many satisfacions. Because my origins are Sicilian, during my adolescence and my studies I worked like a DJ in many disco in Palermo (Sicily) so I like to experience night life and entertainment with friends.

      I hope to find people who likes to share experiences with me, for any further question please contact me, I reply as soon as possible.

      Thank you and have nice trip!!!

      Vincent

      credit cards use in Sweden

      Sweden May 11, 2015 at 8:50 AM

      One of the biggest lesson we learned when we went to 5 Europe countries this past march - april was they did not accept our credit cards that do not have the special chips, is it going to be the same way in Sweden?
      I contacted our bank credit card service and they said they will replace all of our credit cards to chip one. hope that will be ok for Sweden next june :) (when we visit)

      thanks!

    • Planning ahead

      by Drcas Online Now Aug 9, 2006 at 8:41 PM

      I'm planning a trip with husband to Sweden next September '07. We want to spend 15 days. I'm thinking of flying into Stockholm and then on to Gotland. I was pleased to see that many of the tourists will be gone by then but I'm really looking for any ideas between the mainland and the islands that will immerse me in the country and it's history No 5 star hotels for me! Are there any 'must-see' things you would recommend so I don't totally miss out. Also, I would really like to rent a car and do this by driving ourselves; is this an easy thing?

      Thanks for your help! D.

    • does anyone know if there are tours of Gotland?

      by mmmaher Online Now Apr 27, 2004 at 5:24 AM

      My in-laws want to go to Gotland this summer, and they are seniors, so they would like to go with a tour, if possible, as they don't want to rent a car. Does anyone know of any tour operators that offer a, say, 5-day tour of Gotland, including transportation and hotels? I checked on the internet and have not been able to find much. Any recommendations? tour operators? resources? websites? Thanks so much!

      Accommodation for a cycling trip

      by Hockeylady Online Now Aug 13, 2003 at 4:01 AM

      I'm planning a cycling trip to Gotland next summer 2004. I wonder which guesthouses, b&b:s, cabins, country farms or other accommodation services (but not the hotels) are the nicest and friendliest plus can tolerate four cycklists staying only one night in one place. Has anyone tried their services?
