how to travel the Scandic countries on a budget?

particularly Norway and maybe Iceland
I want to go here with my gf but we're both poor students and I hate spending loads of money
I've been to Iceland before with my parents and even for them it was very expensive
I've never been to any other Scandic country

any recommendations? accomodation/food/general costs - how to keep them down? Should I just try to live like a Somalian?

    Take advantage of their "right to roam", a bastardized version of the freedom to travel everywhere that your ancestors enjoyed.
    Don't be a c**t doe and clean up after yourself when you camp in the wild.

    The Norwegian kroner is the lowest it's been in decades. Hotels are probably cheaper than equivalent places in Europe or the US atm.
    Restaurants and alcohol are still expensive as frick but I guess that's to be expected.

    If you ever go to Helsinki and don't want to be ripped off by hotel prices, sleep on a sleeper cruise (Viking line and Tallink are the companies i know that do sleeper cruises with cabins), you'll end up either in Tallin or back in Helsinki, it can save you some cash (Saved me like 35 euros as a last minute option)

      Can you just alternate between the two cities for like a week?

        Probably? The only issue i see is that if you have a carry-on/checked bag then you would have to take it with you every day unless you rent a locker at the port or a train station and leave it there while you visit other places

          Yeah I guess it wouldn't make any sense unless you were going full begpacker mode, I was just curious.

    Wild Camping is allowed everywhere, even on private land and in sight of houses.
    Food is expensive, but costs can be lowered by eating only store bought food, and by fishing to supplement protein.
    Solution = fly to Tromsø with a bicycle + tent + fishing rod and ride south towards Trondheim and then to Oslo/Western Fjords. This assumes you are at least moderately fit.

          nobody knows, eruptions are unpredictable
          it lasting to April is probably less likely than not though

    Hostels and right to roam.

    Consider if you can cook metals yourself - otherwise street food options are available for c. EUR 15.

    Roam around on a rented bike.

    But tbh - you get the best experience if you spend some cash,

      I've thought about it, but it seems unsafe.

    Swap Norway with Sweden. Your money is easily twice as strong there and the countries are basically inseperable
