    • 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!

    • 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!!!

      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)

    • To rent a boat

      Gullholmen Jul 4, 2014 at 3:12 AM

      How do you find a boat to rent in Gullholmen? When travelling in Bohuslan, this seems to be the greatest problem. A bit ironic I must say...We have rented a room and want to be able to go to the small islands around, but not even the hotel has boats ro rent out. Our youngest girl is only 5 years, so "kajak" is too risky. I would like what swedes call an "eka" or similar. How do I find it?
      Thanks for tips!

      Three potential itineraries through Sweden and/or Denmark (all ending in Goteborg)

      Göteborg Mar 27, 2012 at 12:35 PM

      I'm traveling to Sweden and/or Denmark in June 2012 with my wife and 8 month old daughter for about 9-10 days. We are renting a car and hope to see a mix of countryside, small towns, coastline, historic sights, natural beauty, and "must-sees" in the area. We want to spend time outdoors, but with a small baby, we can't do intense hikes, canoe trips, etc. Also, we'd like to spend some time in a big city or two, but also want to drive out and get away from the crowds.

      I have three possible itineraries that I'm having trouble deciding on. For those who have been to Scandinavia, which option would you choose and why? And do you have any particular recommendations along each path? Also, I know each option goes almost all the way up to Oslo, but I am not inclined to go that far; seems like just another big, expensive city.

      OPTION 1: Copenhagen -> Gothenburg (through Sweden)
      Couple days in Copenhagen, take the ferry from Helsingor into Sweden. Malmo, Foteviken Viking Reserve, Ystad in the south, then swing up north along the coast. Go up to Stromstad, ferry into the Koster Islands, Tanum, Smogen, and Gothenburg the last couple of days.

      OPTION 2: Copenhagen -> Gothenburg (through Denmark)
      Couple days in Copenhagen, head west through Roskilde to Odense / Egeskov castle. Up to Aarhus, north to Frederikshavn, ferry over to Sweden. The second half is the same as option 1 (Stromstad, Tanum, Smogen, Gothenburg).

      OPTION 3: Stockholm -> Gothenburg
      Couple days in Stockholm, up to Sigtuna or Uppsala, stay in Orebro or a small town nearby. West to Lake Varnem, Lacko Slott, Uddevalla, Stromstad, The rest is the same as the other two options.

      A) What would be a good way to spend evenings (just for a stroll/a post-dinner walks)?
      B) I may get a chance to do a day trip or two during this period. So please throw at me the options - interests: landscape; history; culture; OR a must-have local food preparation/meat; beer tasting.
      Is an Oslo day-trip a good idea? I will use public transport.

We'll have two days to also discover Goteborg and I was thinking about going to the art galleries (which I think are free) and a few other central things....I have lots of questions!
      1) What would be a good idea for something to do on a Sunday Morning in Goteborg?
      2) I'm a bit confused about the public transport system as the Vasttrafik website is not very clear...Do 14 year olds travel free on all public transport, or is it only if I buy a one-day or three day card?...Is there a two day card?
      3) I can't find a downloadbale tram map..any links?
      4) Is it best to travel to the Uwelli Stadium by tram...or is that a bad idea for big crowd events...can you walk there from the centralstation
