Long Scandinavia Tour - Staying 9 Days:
With 9 or 10 days, follow the steps above, plus the "Norway in a Nutshell tour." This 24-hour tour consists of a well-organized ferry, bus, and trains in Scandinavia.

Countries Of Scandinavia
Extra Long Scandinavia Tour - Staying 16 Days:
If you have 2 weeks or a little bit more, I would suggest to finish the steps we've described and enjoy nature and local culture by visiting the Danish towns Ærø (Aero), Odense, Frederiksborg, and Roskilde. Roskilde has great music events and cultural events, and Frederiksborg offers natural beauty in its Royal Gardens.
Extra Long Scandinavia Tour - Staying 20 Days:
With this long a Scandinavian vacation, you are to be envied! If you are lucky to be able to enjoy Scandinavia for 3 weeks, use the itinerary we've created so far, and then go see Jutland (Denmark's peninsula), e.g. the amusement park Legoland in Billund. Another point of interest you may want to include at that point would be the Swedish town Kalmar, by the Baltic Sea. When you're there, make sure to see 12th century Kalmar Castle which has played a crucial part in Swedish history.
