Sweden and Denmark

posted by Cathy      Sweden and into Denmark AND Sweden - Malmo to Stockholm

We continued down the Kattegat Coast of Sweden south through Halland County and into Skane County until we reach Helsingborg. Here we ferry across to Helsingor to explore one of the islands that make up Denmark - Zealand. Highlights of this part of the trip was visiting Roskilde, especially the Viking Ship Museum and the Cathedral, and of course Denmark's beautiful capital city Copenhagen. We cross the Oresund Strait from Denmark back into Sweden via Malmo using a tunnel then across a small island which was in turn connected to the mainland by a bridge, 15km all up!

From Malmo we continue east then north towards Stockholm. Highlights were our stopover in the small town of Morrum and our visit to the island of Oland where we saw MANY ancient windmills, forts, viking graveyards, medieval churches and artifacts as well as a nature reserve at its southern tip.

Sweden and into Finland

posted by Peter       Sweden - Stockholm AND Finland - Turku to Tampere

We left our van at the Ferry Terminal in Stockholm and caught the morning train into the capital city of Sweden. We walked and used the subway to explore the old town and the new. Highlights were Kings Garden, Gamla Stan and Christiansand Palace. Next morning we caught the ferry to Finland which was a very picturesque journey weaving through the waterways and archipelago of Stockholm where Lake Malaren meets the Baltic Sea.

Our ferry trip from Stockholm in Sweden included a short stop at Mariehamn on the Åland Islands, then on to Turku in Finland. It was calm and very scenic. We are glad we chose to do the day sailing rather than do it overnight. After looking around Turku and nearby islands we travelled north to Tampere through some lovely countryside dotted with many lakes.
