Plaidmoon:
I checked the weather for Svolvaer, Bodo, Trondheim, Oslo and Gdansk for June 16th-18th on http://wunderground.com and saw nothing unusual. It rained in Trondheim on the 17th (0.20") and was breezy (up to 25 mph) and Oslo reported a thunderstorm on the 17th but neither one should have stopped air travel for very long.

runningblind:
How sure are we that they got to Gdansk by plane? If we talk about such delay I immediately think about a Stena Line ferry from Karlskrona (Sweden) to Gdynia (Poland). Maybe that would explain the delay. What do you yhink about that?

theschnauzers:
At the beginning of the episode, after leaving for the ferry dock from the pitstop, one of the teams mentioned that the ferry trip was 34 hours, and the ferry didn't open until 8:30 a.m., and that teams then flew to Poland
That alone should help explain the 2 day gap that had some of y'all wondering what was going on. By my rough calculus, teams wouldn't have reach Gdansk until the afternoon of the third day (as it was clear teams were reaching the pitstop in the afternoon and evening before sunset that day.)

Neobie:
Ah, I should have followed up on this! They took the Hurtigruten ferry, a cruise ship sailing up and down the Norwegian coast. (As opposed to a short ferry then a train, which is much faster.) There is some historical data on their website, which shows the M/S Lofoten departing Svolvaer on 17 Jun at 8.30pm, arriving at Trondheim the morning of 19 Jun at 6.30am. Timeline fits, two whole days eaten up, and mystery solved!

Have to watch the episode again, not sure which exact flight they took? (It should be the flight our spoiler sighting has them travelling on; the rest of production should have left straight from Bodo or Svolvaer.)

The stock footage shows a Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) plane. According to Wikipedia, they fly from Oslo and Copenhagen to Gdansk.
