Welcome to the start of your Scandinavian adventure! After a morning flight into Copenhagen, check-in to your accommodation and begin exploring this gorgeous city. With its mix of royal history, modern architecture and loads of culture with sustainable living and a booming restaurant scene, you’ll quickly come to learn why Danes rank among the world’s most happy people.
Today you have some time to further explore the city of Copenhagen at your own pace before commencing your Scandinavian adventure tour. After checking in to your new accommodation you will join an expert local guide who will show you the highlights of the Danish capital on a driving and walking tour. Visit the famous Nyhavn waterfront, explore Amalienborg Palace, see the famous little mermaid statue, and much more.
To round off the first day of the tour you'll enjoy an included dinner, where you can get to know your fellow travellers and learn a bit more from your tour leader about what incredible experiences the next 11 days will bring!
Enjoy a free day to explore Copenhagen at your own pace. Optional activities include visiting the Tivoli Gardens, a famous amusement park and pleasure garden, and the Rundetaarn, an astronomical observatory that offers fantastic views of the city and is known worldwide for its unique equestrian staircase leading to the top. You could also return to Nyhavn and enjoy a drink on the canal side, and visit Freetown Christiania, a commune in the east of the city that was established by squatters in 1971 and attracts nonconformists from around the world.
Today you have more of an opportunity to admire the natural beauty of the Danish countryside. After leaving Copenhagen, enjoy a stop-over in Odense, the third largest city in Denmark and birthplace of the fairy-tale writer Hans Christian Andersen. Take an orientation tour around the town before continuing to the coastal town of Frederikshavn where you will stop for the night. After arriving and checking in to your accommodation, you have the option to join an excursion to the Grenen sandbar peninsula, the northmost point of Denmark, where you will visit Skagen and Den Tilsandede Kirke (sand church). Dinner is served at the hotel later this evening.
Saying goodbye to Denmark today, you’ll take a ferry through to Oslo in southern Norway. On arrival in the Norwegian capital in the evening, enjoy a walking tour with an expert local guide and see sights such as Akershus Castle, Oslo Opera House, the Parliament building and the Royal Palace.
Today you’ll begin the journey from Oslo to the west coast, travelling through the heart of Norway and witnessing the incredible scenery changing from emerald green landscapes to cobalt blue fjords to white snow-clad mountains. Along the way you'll make a quick stop at Vøringfossen, which is probably the most famous waterfall in the country and has a total drop of 182 meters.
In the evening you’ll arrive in Bergen, Norway’s second-largest city and known as “the city among the seven mountains”. The beautiful Unesco World Heritage-listed Bryggen quay is the highlight, while Norway’s famous fjords are just a short journey away. Upon arrival, your tour leader will take you on an orientation walking tour of Bergen, introducing you to the highlights of Norway’s first capital and former seat of royalty, including the old Hanseatic wharf Bryggen, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and Bergen Fortress.
Today is yours to explore the beautiful Norwegian city of Bergen and the surrounding area. You could take the Fløibanen, the Bergen funicular railway which will hoist you one thousand feet up Floyen mountain for amazing views of the city, or return to Bryggen to spend some more time exploring the classic medieval architecture, markets and warehouses. You can also join the optional excursions to Bergen's aquarium, one of Norway's top tourist attractions, and the Magic Ice Bar, a unique winter wonderland with incredible ice sculptures.
There are more than a thousand fjords in Norway, with most concentrated on the west coast, so you’ll be perfectly located today as you explore the scenic heartland of Norway on your way to Lillehammer. You’ll take a stop off along the way in Gudvangen, a village located at the end of Nærøyfjord, arguably Norway’s most famous fjord. You’ll have the option to visit a viking village, and then take a cruise along the Nærøyfjord and Aurlandsfjorden fjords to Flam - still blue water is framed by towering cliffs and dramatic waterfalls - the easiest picture-postcard photo’s you will ever take.
You’ll arrive in Lillehammer, a ski resort town in southern Norway, in the late evening where you'll enjoy an included dinner.
Today you’ll continue on your journey and cross into Sweden, where the stunning natural landscapes keep coming as you take a scenic drive through the mountains and deep forests to the Dalarna area in central Sweden - keep an eye out for elk and moose! Dalarna is famous for the Dalecarlian horse, a traditional Swedish hand-painted wooden horse statuette painted in bright colours. Once you have arrived, you'll visit a workshop that produces these iconic ornaments, which uses wood from the slow-growing pine forests around the nearby Lake Siljan.
As you make your way through the Swedish countryside, you'll take a lunch stop in Uppsala. Sweden's fourth largest city is the seat of the Archbishop of the Church of Sweden, and home to Scandinavia's largest cathedral - the striking Uppsala Cathedral. After lunch, you’ll continue on to Stockholm, where you will embark on a walking tour with an expert local guide. You’ll be introduced to the highlights of Sweden’s capital including the Royal Palace, Gamla Stan (the old town and heart of the city) and the AF Chapman ship. This evening enjoy an included dinner.
Enjoy the day exploring more of Stockholm at your own leisure! Gamla Stan is the old town, comprised of red, orange and terracotta-coloured buildings overlooking narrow cobblestone streets. The numerous islands that make up the town offer fascinating walks, especially through the Djurgården, where you can visit Skansen, the open-air Swedish history museum.
Today you are on the final leg of your Scandinavian tour. Look out for lakes, forests and rolling fields as you drive through the Swedish countryside. Just before you get to Copenhagen, you will make a stop at the town of Helsingør. This town is home to Kronborg Castle, known to many as 'Elsinore' and the setting for Shakespeare's 'Hamlet'. You'll see the castle from the water as you take a short ferry from Sweden back to Denmark.
After enjoying a delicious breakfast, say goodbye to your tour guide and newfound friends before concluding your tour and checking in to your central accommodation. The rest of the day is yours to enjoy at leisure.
Spend your last full day in Copenhagen experiencing this gorgeous city at your own pace. Sample some local cuisine, visit a museum and stroll through charming Nyhavn, all while exploring the city by bicycle. It’s cheap, it’s fun, and you’ll feel more like a local. Finish off your perfect day with a gourmet meal at one of Copenhagen’s Michelin starred restaurants.
Spend your morning soaking up last-minute experiences before heading to the airport for your return flight home.
