Some of my very best memories of my travels to some of those countries were The Lakes District in England (breathtakingly beautiful), Eze Village near Nice, France (perched high atop a peak and reachable only on foot- absolutely charming!), and Rome, Italy (of course!) where you can still walk among and even TOUCH ruins from 1000's of years ago... Three times I've thrown a coin in the Trevi Fountain and three times I've been back... due for my fourth, as the legend appears to be true. ;-) Have an AWESOME time!

Avondrood, I could spend my entire life exploring France.
It may be my favorite country.

My family is coming to Europe in June this year for a month-long holiday (and to visit me). We will be visiting the following countries:

England
France
Italy
Sweden
Norway
Iceland

We are somewhat interested in museums and shopping, quite interested in culture/architectural marvels, and very interested in nature/scenery/outdoor activities.

Can anyone suggest places in these countries highly worth visiting, or activities worth trying?
For me a very broad general rule is one week per country.

Obviously you might have a problem fulfilling this rule.

Some favorites:

In England: London! Hampton Court, Windsor, Stonehenge, York, Bath, Avebury, Cornwall

Italy: Rome (at least 3 days, don't miss the Pantheon, try to see Hadrian's Villa), Amalfi coast, Siena and Tuscany in general, Maremma, Venice

France: You can't go wrong with any part of France, partly because of the regions themselves, partly because it is part of France's policy to preserve its important regions and museums. At least three days in Paris is a good idea. Some favorites (in no order): Loire Valley, Brittany, Nantes, Villandry, Oradour-sur-Glane, Strasbourg and Alsace

Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone! Since we haven't confirmed most of our schedule yet, this will give us room to change our plans, if necessary!

I would love to plan a trip to Europe to see Paris, London, Lucerne Switzerland (the alps) and also Ireland. Wondering how difficult that would be to do in 2-3 weeks and also, how to go about getting a flight to Ireland.

I agree with other posters, 6 countries in 4 weeks is very ambitious. You might want to scale back. Consider that Scandanavia is very expensive!

IMHO that's too much for 2-3 weeks. Getting a flight to Ireland from the US is easy. You call Aer Lingus. Flying there from London you would have several more options for short cheap commuter flights. Have a wonderful trip!
