most time we drove further every day, apart from the cities and the Lofoten, there we stayed each 2 days.
For the planning beforehand we used normal maps from ADAC. We took them always with us in the tankrucksack (is it the same in English than in German??) for a rough orientation. And of course we used a navi :) That’s enough.
I think in Sweden it was more reasonable than in Finnland and Norway. The prices in Finnland were a bit higher than in Germany. And Norway was unbelievable expensive!!! And alcohol is all over there expensive, as well as gas.
The roads in Finnland and Sweden were good and in Norway there were only bad at the beginning. Sometimes there were longer roadworks, which were proper gravelroads for almost 30 kilometers.
Nature was sometimes quiet different but always wonderful. Every country had some highlights like the Trollstigen in Norway for example and all the Fjords!

By the way: we saw the first reindeers at the middle of Finnland – wonderful creatures!! But keep your eyes open and take care.
