Itinerary

Arrival in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark.

Breakfast at your hotel and day at leisure in Copenhagen. Copenhagen’s a charming city with a thousand years of history. These are the same medieval streets; the same streets walked on by every generation of the world’s oldest royal family, the same streets and canals which have inspired artists for centuries and been home and workplace to meticulous craftsmen and famous designers. The city offers many attractions such as the famous Tivoli amusement park, the statue of the Little Mermaid, the Gefion Fountain, the Royal Palace Amalienborg and many more. Copenhagen is also famous for its cafes and bakeries.

Breakfast at your hotel. Depart for Copenhagen late afternoon by overnight ferry to Oslo.

Morning arrival Oslo, capital of Norway. Oslo is beautifully situated at the head of the Oslo Fjord and surrounded by wooded hills. Oslo offers many well-known sights such as the Opera House, the Vigeland Sculpture Park, the Viking Ship Museum and the Munch Museum. Get to know the city on an optional guided sightseeing tour taking you past the famous sights.

Breakfast at your hotel and day at leisure to continue your explorations.

Breakfast at your hotel. Morning departure from Oslo by train to Myrdal which will take about five hours. In Myrdal, change trains and board the well renowned Flåm Railway. The flåmsbana passes through wild and beautiful scenery with waterfalls and steep mountain sides.

Breakfast at your hotel. Spend some time this morning discovering Flåm and its surroundings. After lunch, board the ferry taking you over the Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord to Gudvangen. From Gudvangen, the journey continues by bus through Nærøyfjord Valley and past the Stalheimskleiva with its 13 steep hairpin bends. The last part of this trip will be by train from Voss to Bergen, Norway’s second largest city and the world’s only city surrounded by seven mountains and seven fjords.

Breakfast at your hotel. Day at leisure. We recommend a visit to some of Bergen’s many attractions such as the Hanseatic Bryggen Harbour, the Fløibanen Funicular, which takes you up to a height of 320 metres above sea level where you are presented with a great view over the city, Grieg’s home Troldhaugen, the Fish and Flower Market or the Bergen Aquarium. Use this day to get to know the city and all it has to offer. Optional sightseeing tour with guide.

Breakfast at your hotel. Fly Bergen to Stockholm, capital of Sweden (flight not included).

Breakfast at your hotel. Days at leisure to explore Stockholm. Built on 14 islands, you’re never far from the water in Stockholm. . Sights of interest are the Vasa Museum, the Skansen Open Air Museum, City Hall, the Old Town (Gamla Stan) and many more. If you prefer, taken an optional guided city sightseeing tour or a cruise to the Stockholm archipelago.

Breakfast at your hotel. We suggest a visit to the hip neighbourhood of Södermalm and for shopping, Norrmalm is recommended and well worth the visit. Late afternoon departure for Helsinki by overnight cruise.

Morning arrival in Helsinki. Over these two days, you’ll have the opportunity to get to know Helsinki, to visit the little backstreets to find the unique items on offer in the little shops. Wander down the Esplanade Park to the harbour fish market and visit famous Food Hall beside it. Helsinki is a sophisticated city with great art galleries and shopping – there is something for everyone. Take an optional audio sightseeing tour highlighting the most important sights and giving you an excellent view of Helsinki’s past and present. The tour takes you to the historical centre, City Hall, The Parliament buildings, Finlandia Hall and the Opera House besides other well known sights. It also stops at either the Temppeliaukio Church (Rock Church) or at the Sibelius Monument if the church is close.

If you’re visiting between the beginning of May and mid September, a definite MUST is to take the 45 minute pub tram tour through the centre of Helsinki. SpåraKOFF, a bright-red tram that has been converted into a bar, has been a part of the Helsinki summer for 24 years and is operated by Helsinki City Transport. It’s a great way to end your Scandinavian Adventure!
