I'm thinking of taking my girlfriend to Norway (or Sweden or Finland) for a weekend before she goes back to uni.
Just a question on where do you think we should go? I think a busy town/city but where we could go and explore the countryside as well (as best we can). Think we'll go in about 2/3 weeks time for about 3-4 days.
Any ideas, THANKS

Norway and the fjords. Take a boat trip along the norwegian coast. Maybe start in Gothenburg (I live there) and then go via Oslo, to the fjords, go north, then take a flight to Stockholm and spend the last day there. And then back home.

Would be my advice.

The northern parts of Norway are pretty nice, especially Lofoten. But it's a risk because it's often bad weather. It's worth it though

The maelstrom. I'd love to see it. The bad weather is basically a part of Lofoten and those parts. It's beautiful.

All of this, except instead of going to Stockholm go to Copenhagen. Whatever you do, stay away from Finland.

Avoid Copenhagen on sundays however. A lot of it will be closed.

Combine it, let's say a week. Sunday and monday, copenhagen - Gothenburg - Oslo - Norwegian fjords - Stockholm - home.

Nordic as a group of people is very seldom used, it can be used however, and yes it's what we are called. We are awesome.

Also, why avoid Finland?

I don't know any specific places in Norway, but Lofoten and the coast around there is supposed to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. Source from Edgar Allen Poe and his novel about The Maelstrom.

Finland is not unique in neither nature nor society. Norway has the most amazing scenery of the countries and Sweden and Denmark are the economic centers basically.

It totally depends on the time you've got but I'm certain a trip to Finland, given the time is available, is a terrific trip.

As good of Loften sounds, it seems far from Oslo, I'm guessing the major airport.

That might be true. It might be hard. But Lofoten is supposed to be terrific. I've not been there, I intend to go one day however.
