I don't get to travel that much, and when I do travel, it's always to the same few places over and over again... Scandinavia (as well as many other places on Earth) has long since been a vacation goal of mine.
I am a nature junkie. I love exploring natural habitats, hiking, taking photos of beautiful landscapes and sceneries, making new friends abroad, etc. I've been researching and eyeballing Norway and Sweden for a while, but I'm honestly open to visiting anywhere else in Scandinavia this Spring/Summer in 2015. I even considered attending some of the metal festivals, but the only ones that really interest me right now are in Norway during months that are a bit inconvenient for me.
So I would like some advice from any of you who have visited or are from there. What would you recommend personally? What is there to do? What should I check out? What should I expect? How badly will these expensive countries rape my wallet? (I am a hardcore penny saver and know how to live on a tight budget). Tell me everything! Give me the good, the bad, and the ugly. All advice would be very much appreaciated

Basically for nature along the coast or the moutain side is the best.
The High Coast (Höga Kusten) is wonderful, but I would say that since I grew up there.
As per usual the capitols are the most expensive.
