Off Topic: sightseeing in north Scandinavia

(Copy/pasted from Other Place, nevermind wink )

(There is no official Off Topic subforum, maybe it would be nice to have one for people to socialise... if you want to have something like that here...)

Anyway, during August my wife and me will be travelling through Finland, Sweden and Norway and I'd be interested if anyone would have any recommendation for sightseeing, or some good (and not too expensive) food advice.

Well, basically, since we're first time there, *any* kind of local advice would be useful.

We'll spend ten days in Helsinki (attending some events), after that we'll be driving to Nordkapp and then back through Norway (maybe Narvik) and Sweden, probably through Germany and move on further south. For now, the only spot we have fixed in our plan (apart from Nordkapp) is Treriksröset. Everything else is flexible, depending what advice we pick up here and there or stumble upon on the internet.

So, if you're from anywhere near and want to brag about some must-see locations, this is a good opportunity

Re: Off Topic: sightseeing in north Scandinavia

Of course it depends on what you would like to see or do, but here are few popular ones.

One popular attraction is the Linnanmäki amusement park in Helsinki. The entrance is free and it's relatively close to downtown.


There is also the sea fortress Suomenlinna. Directly translated as the castle of Finland even while there is no actual castle. Just the sea fortress smile
