    • 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,

      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!

    • Telephone services from US to Sweden

      Kalmar Dec 23, 2014 at 8:29 PM

      What s the best way to allow our daughter to call us from the US while we are visiting Sweden for a few weeks? We heard about a company that would allow us to carry a prepaid cell phone that would allow us to receive incoming calls at no cost. We use all prepaid cell phone service (Net10 and Virgin) now at home so we don't have phone service that would allow calls to Sweden. We would like to purchase prepaid cards for our daughter to use before our trip.

      Any other suggestions?

      Thank you.

      trains to vimmerby from stokholm

      Vimmerby May 3, 2013 at 1:23 PM

      hi,
      i'm going to go to Vimmerby this summer. Last time I was there, there was a train route via Lingkoping (and , as I checked, there is such possibility now). But , as I checked connections in the Net, there is no such possibility in August. Does anyone there know whether there will be some changes in train routes or it is just problem with booking system ? Many thanx in advance

      My daughter is moving to Lund to work in a Montessori school there. I'll be flying over with her and staying for a month. Has anyone any suggestions on the most affordable place for the two of us to stay? We'd prefer some place in Lund, because we'd really like to walk everywhere. But if that's cost prohibitive, I'd of course appreciate any suggestions.

      Am planning on being in Lund, Sweden for several months with my daughter and wondered if anyone was interested in a house swap for that period of time (possibly around September 2013 or later). My home is a lovely two bedroom, two bath with a garden of berries, apples, vegetables, flowers and lots of rhododendron. Ten minutes from town, but country-like setting a mile from the ocean.

      I am confused. My ancestor came from Ljungby, which I thought was in Kronoberg lan but now am wondering if there is a Ljungby in Kalmar lan also. Their births were registered at St. Wi parish in Kalmar lan, 1833, but once found a list of the parishes in Kalmar and could not find St. Wi listed.

      SKIING in Sälen, Sweden

      Salen Jan 18, 2006 at 7:23 AM

      SKIING in Sälen, Sweden

      Hi all,

      We are an Irish couple heading to Sweden in a couple of wks and have a few questions that we were wondering maybe someone could help us out with. We fly to Stockholm on the 4th of February. Kind of last minute notion we got in our heads....

      TRANSPORT
      1. We hope to take the bus/train to Falun. Is there a bus from Falun to Sälen?
      2. Or is it necessary to go all the way up to Mora or Malung to get the transfer?
      3. Bus/train? Which is cheaper? Can we get tickets when we arrive in Stockholm or should we book before?
      4. Is it possible to rent a car in Falun/Mora/Malung to drive and drop-off in Oslo where we plan to spend a couple of days also? Can you recommend any car rental places? (It seemed from www.sj.se there are no trains to Oslo at all on those days... so car rental a possibilty...)

      ACCOMODATION
      5. Is it possible to book for just 3 nights (e.g Sun, Mon, Tues) in the Sälen ski resort or do we have to pay for the full “short week” (Sun - Thurs)?
      6. What is the best/cheapest hotel/cabin/holiday village? (We are 2 people)

      SKIING
      8. Can we get a Ski-pass when we arrive or should we book it before?
      9. Likewise for Ski-hire...
      10. Likewise for Ski-lessons...

      Thanks a million!!!
