Norway & Sweden

Heading north at begining of June.

Anyone know of anything cheap in those countries that makes it not worth taking from here?

Regards.

We only take the things that we couldn't do without. Sweden was cheaper than Norway.

We are taking as much food as possible to last our 3 weeks.
Apart from bread and milk we don't need anything else

There is a restriction on meat products...I would appreciate any informed comments on this as we usually travel with the freezer compartment full

PS. I get the impression that everything is more expensive in Norway than the UK.

Thanks to you both - EJB - I have read that you cannot take potatoes into Norway but have not seen anything about meat.

Regards.

I didn't think there was much difference in the cost of basic food when we were there. The exception being boose and fresh meat which can be expensive. Frozen meat is cheaper and I thought salmon was a good buy.

I did a report >here<

Brandywine,
Correct!
From EEA/EU countries we are allowed to import 10Kg of meat and milk products.

PS. Both Franks and Peedees blogs are invaluable.....I'll thank them when we return
