Small group tours Scandinavia Itinerary
In low-lying Denmark, we visit meticulously maintained urban centres, including the vibrant capital of Copenhagen. We continue our sightseeing tour and adventure in Sweden and its capital, Stockholm, now the financial capital of the region. After Sweden, we travel to Norway, famous for its breathtaking Norwegian coastal voyage favoured by tourists. Here, we journey over magnificent mountains and skirt picturesque fjords to reach Bergen.
Our Scandinavian tour begins in Copenhagen, a treasure trove of museums, castles, and churches. We begin by exploring the Radhauspladsen (City Hall Square), where the famous pedestrian street "Stroget" begins. Next, we pass through the Tivoli Gardens, dating back to 1843, and make our way past the New Carlsberg Glyptotek and the National Museum. We then see the Old Stock Exchange and the Naval Church. In addition, we drive past the Kongens Nytorv (Kings New Square), the home of the Royal Danish Theatre with the world famous ballet.
Afterwards, we visit the old canal area, Nyhavn, with its picturesque houses and vessels. Next, we visit the famous landmark of Copenhagen, the statue of the Little Mermaid, known from Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale. Finally, we stop at the Royal residence, Amalienborg Palace. Our initial education tour of the city concludes with a visit to Amalienborg Castle.
Other highlights of this educational tour include a walking city tour in Stockholm and a visit to the fabulous Vasa boat museum. Here, we take a tour of the world’s best preserved 17th century warship. We also trace the region’s sea-faring culture through Oslo’s Viking Boat Museum and visit the home of national composer Edvard Grieg, in Bergen. In addition, the tour also traverses vast Swedish lakelands and dense forests, passing impressive Gripsholm Castle by Lake Malaren.
