What To Know

  • It's difficult to predict Scandinavian climate, so take clothes for all weather conditions, an umbrella and a water-resistant jacket.
  • The tour program includes some walking tours, we recommend you to pack comfortable shoes.
  • You can use your bank card to pay almost anywhere in Europe. If you need some local cash, it is best to use an ATM. This is true for all European countries, except for Hungary. When you withdraw cash from an ATM, the currency conversion will be done automatically by your bank, and the exchange rate will usually be much better than if you exchange currency at a local bank. 1 Swedish krona equals to 11 dollar cents.
