In Sweden you'll find ATMs virtually everywhere.

If you know in advance which places you're going to visit, you can find out online if and where there are ATM's where you can use your MasterCard and Cirrus or Visa to withdraw money.


Norway is great for camping, but because the weather isn't always good, you may want to consider staying in cabins part or all of your vacation. You can rent those everywhere, or book in advance. Camping sites usually have a few simple cabins in which you can stay when it rains. In that case you'll have to check in early.

You can build a fly-drive itinerary with maximum flexibility, book a flight plus a hotel hotel for a night or weekend.
