      Two days - Itinerary

      Göteborg Sep 29, 2015 at 8:04 AM

      We are travelling to Goteborg coming weekend and we have almost two full days to spend. We want to visit Archipelago but not sure which island is the best and which one that is best but very near to city - request help. We also will be going to Universum and then just landmarks in city center. I need help if I can add more or refine my selection of places. We have taken some nice food in Ikea, so hope Sweden has some good restaurants offering vegetarian food - any suggestions..

    • Planning a trip to Aurora Sky Station

      Abisko Nationalpark Sep 6, 2015 at 11:16 AM

      Hey, I'm planning to see the Aurora this December and I would love if anyone could help me sharing some informations because I'm finding very difficult to gather.

      - How can I go from Kiruna to the Aurora Sky Station in Abisko? Is there any transfer or should I rent a car would be the best option? I'm not use to drive in the snow, that's why I don't know how to go.

      - Does anyone stayed in Abisko Mountain Lodge? Is it close to the station?
      The website says that it's only 2km from the lodge to aurora station by cable car?
      Does the cable car is open 24h that I could go back after the experience to sleep in the lodge?

      - Should I take the exclusive dinner + aurora search or it's not worth it both? How long does it take this package?



    • Invited to Stockholm for Nobel Prize week, what should I expect?

      Stockholm Sep 5, 2015 at 2:19 PM

      As said in the title, I have been invited to Nobel Prize week held at Stockholm University. However, I've never stepped foot outside of the United States before in my seventeen years of life, so this presents a couple of concerns on my end. Being under eighteen and neither parent having any interest in attending the event with me, what kind of complications will this cause in terms of travel, lodging, and social scenes? Assuming I make it to Stockholm, I will be arriving early to mid December, so how bad is the winter there and what can I expect (side note: I am from Florida; we don't have winter here)? Travel expenses and all other things have been covered by family finances, scholarships, etc., so that is not a concern at this time. I just need to know what to do when over there IF I can get there because frankly I am a little intimidated by the complexity of planning this trip along with no one to help me.

      Bus or Train

      Stockholm Sep 24, 2015 at 12:59 PM

      Traveling from Stockholm to Oslo in spring of this year I see that there is a train and at least two bus services available. Any advice as to which one to take. Please rate by cost, comfort and your recommendation if you have actually taken this route before. I would qualify for a senior fare. Thanks

      bike trails

      Umeå Mar 25, 2015 at 2:45 PM

      I will be spending 3 days in Umea in the spring as some of my ancesters were from there. One of them was born in Umea and her mother was born in Boggbole. I see there is a bike path that connects Umea to Boggbole and Boggbole Manor through the woods? I'm traveling alone and although born in the country, I never felt comfortable in the woods by myself…nuts perhaps. Is this area safe? Is there a bus that goes there in the summer? Would a taxi be wiser? I will not have a cell phone with me. There are ruins of an old sawmill in which my Gr…grandfather worked that I would like to explore also. Any knowledge of this area or suggestions? Norlin and Linstrom were a couple of the names. Is there an old cemetery in the area also (LOL)?

      Northern Lights in Umeå

      Umeå Jan 28, 2014 at 6:24 AM

      Dear all,

      I am just back from Tromsø, which was amasing with its scenery and polar landscapes. Unfortunately, didn't see the Northern lights but that's another occassion to go up in the far north.

      I was thinking of Umeå this time, going in March. Do you think its a good period or it might be a bit late then. How is it in terms of weather. To see the lights you need clear sky and low temperatures, so how is Umeå in this regard? Please recommend any easily accessible point to Umeå and feel free to share your experience there - local people's advice is most welcome.

      I need advice. My grandmother died and the funeral is on the 23rd December in the morning.

      My family are travelling to Northern Finland through Sweden for Christmas.

      I can get into Stockholm for 9.15 PM on the 23rd. I need to get up to Umea for early the following morning.

      The plains, trains and buses are of no help.

      Can anyone suggest anything at all?

    • australians coming to sweden, wanting to ski artic circle

      Hemavan Jul 13, 2004 at 3:02 AM

      hi we are a couple of australians who are coming to sweden at the end of the year. We would like to do some downhill skiing in or close to the arctic circle, but don't know if the ski resorts will be open due to the lack of sunlight. We would like to ski there in the 1st or 2nd week of January 2005. It would be greatly appreciated if anyone could tell us which resorts (if any) are open. If they use lights to extend the skiing time and what sort of snow we could expect (hopefully lots of powder). Any other information that you feel could be usefull would also be appreciated. thanks dan and kim (see ya on the slopes)
