travel advice & savings


Copenhagen christmas market
Market in Copenhagen, Denmark

Nearby airports

Will need to fly into Copenhagen (or nearby city) from US in Aug 2012 for a cruise. A friend has mentioned getting direct flights to Copenhagen from the US is fairly expensive, so am wondering if there are other cities that would cost less but be fairly easy & cheap to then get to Copenhagen? I am willing to arrive a few days early and travel by train if that;s a good idea as I’ve never been to Northern Europe before.

Also, what’s a good fare so I’ll know when to buy rather than spending the next 13 months searching, searching, searching?

My film “Vikings, Tivoli and Trolls” presents the highlights of Denmark, Sweden and Norway, starring Copenhagen’s colorful Nyhavn Canal, entertainment at the Tivoli amusement park; Stockholm’s Vasa, a huge Swedish warship that sank in 1628; Norway’s scenic fjords, waterfalls, the Bergen World Heritage Site, Trolls, and the Viking Ship Museum, plus much more. With historic houses and digital effects.

“Vikings, Tivoli and Trolls” can be seen on the web, with a high speed internet connection. This is a free, non-commercial, streaming video on the Windows Media Player.

SAS Scandinavian good price for summer 2009

I have an alert on Stockholm and just received a notice today of a good fare for next summer. This fare may have been around for awhile and it was just triggered for me.
I was checking Atlanta-Stockholm and could get it 15may 09 through 30aug 09 for <$1000 all in for Fixed Economy. It seems to be the sale listed on their website, but my final fare is less than promoted.

Flight offers from the US to Scandinavia and Finland for summer travel originating between May 15 – August 30, 2009.
