Norway and Sweden camping trip Anonymous 07/29/14(Tue)23:29 UTC+1 No.880492 Report

Hi /trv/ I'm about to go for a camping trip from south of a Norway to North and than cross to Sweden and head back south and that all in about 14 days.
Could you guys give me some tips what to see in these countries and also some general scandinavia camping tips?

thats not north of norway or sweden, and you are going through Denmark as well.
Anonymous 07/30/14(Wed)00:08 UTC+1 No.880530 Report

okay, not really north of the countries, but the direction is north. We are not really thinking about spending some time in Denmark, just going through

Well, as a swede...

"Gamla Stan (The Old City)" in Stockholm is a nice area for tourists with lovely old architecture and castles and shit.

Beyond that I really don't know. The great thing to see in Sweden that I tend to recommend is just the nature in summer, and you'll see plenty of that along your route.

I hope you will be sleeping in the forest if you are camping

In Sweden you'll have the Allemansrätt which allows you to camp in the woods instead of designated camping spots (which also exist), as long as you're not a fucktard - no blazing fires, no cutting down trees, no camping in someone's backyard. And pick up your fucking trash.

Your route is a bit odd, once you get away from the populated south you'll be going through a lot of farmland and forest before turning to the more populated coast again and hitting stockholm. The E4 coast road up to Sundsvall is not good for walking, but if you can hitch a ride, you're golden. You won't see much that way of course. The landscape will change a lot.

I'd actually recommend going slightly higher than Sundsvall so you get to see the mountainous region above, maybe climb the Skuleberget or check out one of the largest bridges in Europe that's up here for some reason.

Once you head west again you will enter true no mans land a lot. Population density drops like a rock and you need to know your terrain and the roads so you don't get stuck on some backroad or logging road.

After that your path takes you over a huge mountain. That's not really walkable. There are buses of course. Is this a car camping trip? I just realized that might explain the odd routing.

Anyway Norway has a lot of impressive vistas, the mountains and fjords. Other than that it is barren of people and entertainment. You can barely find a fucking pizza joint.
If you want to check out cities, it's Stockholm. Malmö isn't much to see IMO. There are a lot of old castles or runestones and other historical sites you could drop by on that Skåne -> Stockholm path if you plan for it.

Thank you, I'll check that. I have been twice in sweden 1st time in Varberg for 14 days and the second time in Lund for two nights and than somewhere near the sea.

Is it still legal to fish in the Sweden sea without any fishing papers?
Just thinking about taking one of my old rods.

sure thing

Yeah its a car camping trip. Thanks for advice, our idea is to avoid big cities as much its possible, so we should really get somewhere to no mans land to enjoy the nature. Except Stockholm on the way back.

Is this worth paying a visit? Is there anything interesting around this?
Anonymous 07/30/14(Wed)22:18 UTC+1 No.881046 Report

Go further north. For norway that's not north at all and while Sundsvall is a nice place, it's pretty middle ground.
It's really beautiful during summertime.

The north, that is. Beautiful scenery.
But you're looking at at least a 4 hour drive up from Sundsvall to get to somewhere decent.

Murrifat who went to Sweden recently here. I had a lovely time in the Djurgarden, I went to a free concert there and everyone was very friendly.

Gamla Stan is cool, I sat on the street and drank and smoked with some bros I randomly met there.

I stayed at the Red Boat Holstel right across the water from Gamla Stan in Sodermalm, it's on a boat. It's quite cheap, good location, good breakfast buffet, altogether not bad.

Go north bro. Senja is nice.

Another pic. The populated island is called Husoy.

Is there like anything interesting in the south?
So we can see it on the way north?

There's a special tourist route between Kristiansand and Haugesund. Maybe it could give you some ideas.

The scenery between Flekkefjord and Egersund is worth checking out (Jossingfjord, Sogndalstrand).

The preikestolen has a beautiful view, but is very crowded and can be skipped since you are on a 14 day schedule.

I cycled through southern Norway last may (Kristiansand-Bergen) and along the western coastline of Denmark, ask me anything.

Not OP, but I want to go to Norway, specifically Sogndal, from Slovenia.

Is my best option the train?

I was there for 2 days, went to visit the Artmuseum and went for a couple of walks through the city centre (visiting Bryggen, fishmarket, the fortress, Johanneskirken). I wouldn't recommend buying anything at the fishmarket or the restaurants surrounding it, since the fish is extremely overpriced and not freshly caught.
Also, don't forget it rains about 250 days a year in Bergen.

Yeah, bring your fishing rod - no papers needed in the sea and in the five largest lakes of the country. In other lakes and streams the rules vary and you'll have to look it up locally.
