    Big Scandi Adventure 2019



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Leaving at the end of this month (April).
    Returning last week of July. 13/14 weeks out (depending on the political situation!)

    Rough plan.
    France. Belgium. Netherlands. Germany. Denmark. Sweden. Norway. Finland. Estonia. Latvia. Lithuania. Poland. Germany. France.

    No schedule, just a very vague route peaking as far north as we get by midsummers day. Lots of Lofoten and Senja. Probably spend the largest time in Norway.

    Visit to Moominland in Finland also a must as my wife is a big Moomin fan!

    Anyone else up there this summer?

    Going back next year, shout out if you want any tips, make sure you get the transponder for your windscreen it’s a lot easier to deal with Norwegian company than EPC in london

    Summer 2016
    So Denmark Norway Finland Sweden Denmark

    6th May Near Calais
    15th May South Denmark
    23rd May Hirstsals to Kristisndsand
    17th June Lofoten
    4th July Finland (Inari)
    13th July Haparanda (Sweden)
    11th August H to H Denmark
    26th August Canterbury
    This took 110 day...Easily trimmed to 3 months by
    1 only stopping for 1 night on the way to Hirtsals
    2 again only 1 nighters on they way back from Denmark
    3 travel 50 miles further a day to and from
    4 easy to trim Norway by a couple of days Sweden the same


    Norway is stunning
    Great wild camping in Sweden we followed the E45 (inland route)
    Norway LPG Ok but Alta is the most Northerly
    Yes Pitea in Sweden

    I would happily repeat the route
    But maybe use the shorter "Oresund bridge and the Rodby to Puttgarden Ferry" route on the way back (through Denmark on the same day)

    Enjoy !

    As my vehicle is above 3.5 tonne I have to have a transponder anyway apparently.
    Easygo or easygo+ ??
    Will have to research today.

    Brobiz one?

    We are 7.5 t and the easy go worked well 5 months in Norway total price for tolls was £63 including exchange rate, not worth driving round them, ferries are cheap enough for our van they worked out about 75p per minute so an hour on the ferry was just short of £60, we are 9.5 metres

    When we lived in Bergen my small sons both wanted cheap “Snoopy” toy fishing rods. On the way home with them they were desperate to try them out so we stopped the car, took the rods out of the wrapping and just dropped the ends in the water. Out they came with a mackerel on each!

    Lofoten

    When we were parked up by a bridge a fellow camper went fishing
    Had 10 to a dozen fish...froze them all did not offer us one despite the odd hint MFB !

    I am no good at fishing sometimes the fish in "Fish and Chips" manages to escape !
