Hello, we spent one month wild camping in Sweden, Norway and Finland-two years ago.WE entered Denmark through Germany and came back from Helsinki to Stockholm by Ferry and finally Gothenburg to Newcastle.We almost reached Cap Nord en route. Wild Camping was easy,cost of living was high -including fuel. We received a parking ticket when we got back home(take care to pay for parking. Beware of Reindeer crossing the road in the north. Driving can be monotonous and you may have a problem in staying awake in isolated areas. We went in May and avoided the crowds and mosquitos.From Hrlsinki you can take a Tourist train to St Petersbourg( Visa can take up to a week). Its possible to take a Ferrry to Talin in Estonia from Helsinki and do the return trip through Latvia Poland and Germany. BOn Voyage.
