Oslo, Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Reykjavik Travel

My buddy and I are planning a 1.5 week holiday to visit Oslo, Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Reykjavik this summer, thinking about spending 3 days in the first two, 2 days in Copenhagen, and then an afternoon and overnight in Reykjavik. We're both interested in history and cool museums. I'm suggesting that we stay in hostels, since they're cheap and pretty friendly from my experience in the Benelux. Any recommendations for places to go, stay, or eat at?
Viking Ship Museum, Akershus Fortress, Frognerseteren, Kon-tiki and Fram Museums
Djurgarden + Museums, all the stuff in Gamla Stan, the Hornstulls Strand
Rosenborg Castle, Kastellet, Christiansborg Slot, Stroget Street
Viking Settlement Exhibit, and the downtown walking area, not enough time for a driving tour

On that topic, which language has the most cognates across the group?

    are you moronic

    Norwegian, Danish and Swedish are more of a dialect continuum than separate languages. Norwegian probably edges it as it has had more influence on Icelandic (which is very different) but it’s marginal

      We were thinking about taking the trains between, they didn't look that long

      English would be fine for him the problem is just going to be the dogshit waste of time just getting around.

      For reference OP you're essentially asking "Hey is 1.5 weeks enough for me to go see NYC, DC, Miami, take a bite and see cowboys in texas, then go to LA and check out the grand canyon+vegas?".

      Sure you *can* do it but you're going to have to really schedule your time down to the wire on a few things and pay extra for premium flight times to properly see it all.

      >Norwegian probably edges it
      The largest outlier of the three is Danish by far.

    1.5 weeks for all of that is a cluster frick and the only way to do it properly would be to spend assloads of money on the already assload you are spending to visit those places

    10 days lol, not enough time for all that shit. cut off Iceland and take a look at seeing some nature on the mainland instead. Big cities are the same everywhere

      Right, we've cut off Iceland; we saw some flights had 13 hour layovers and thought it'd be fun, but it doesn't look like it'd be worth the effort

    I haven't been to Oslo or Reykjavik, you're cutting off Iceland anyway now so I guess that doesn't matter, but while Copenhagen and Stockholm are alright (back in 2016 anyway) I'm not sure why you'd go to Scandinavia and not go for the nature, the cities are the worst parts about those countries

    Dude. Tick off lots of countries in one go! Radical. 3 days in a huge country spend 2 at the airport. Cowabunge

    I almost spit my coffee out when I read Hornstulls strand. Do not go there unless it's a really nice day and you want to go for a swim nearby.

    I literally live on that street and it's nothing to see or visit. Some shitty food trucks and a few tables of garbage being sold. Insanely underwhelming if you've ever been to any type of market anywhere in the world.

    Take a stroll around and in Södermalm though. It's nice in the summer. Långholmen is pretty. Rent a kayak there and see the city from the water. Pass by the market if you want but do not make it your destination.

      >the Hornstulls Strand
      yep, same. it's comfy definitely but something to go on a if you're a local and are bored on a weekend day. or if you're staying longer than a couple of days.
      i'm happy to help if you want to be more specific? local? cheap/expensive?
      if you still want to visit some there's Stockholm City museum near Slussen and the Nobel Prize museum in Gamla Stan. The city museum is relatively small but good if you're interesting more of the history of Stockholm and its inhabitants through the years. I haven't been to the Nobel prize museum.

    You shouldn't stay in the big cities
    Use the extensive public transport and get a hotel near nature somwhere

      Also if it's 1.5 weeks you should focus on one country instead of all of them, unless you're planning on being somewhere close to the borders.
      Choose a specific region, for example Western Northern, then create a route of hotels and places to visit instead of jumping from city-to-city that way
