Prices From:
US$ 2,999

FIRST-CLASS | SMALL GROUP: Bergen and the fjords await your arrival, as do two wonderful northern capitals; Oslo and Stockholm. Join this small group tour and discover the essence of the north!

Explore Scandinavia on this Locally Escorted Group Tour that includes specially-selected accommodations, quality transportation, sightseeing, special culinary experiences, and a knowledgeable Tour Escort.    

This 8-day journey through some of Scandinavia's stunningly beautiful fjordland includes a stay in Norway’s most attractive and popular city, Bergen, followed by two scenic overnights in Stalheim and Fagernes, and visits to the capitals, Oslo and Stockholm. 

Start your fjord tour with a 2-night stay in Bergen, commonly thought to be Norway’s most beautiful city. Enjoy some free time before taking an afternoon tour of the city, which includes St. Mary’s Church, Haakon's Hall, the colourful and picturesque fish markets, and the old Bryggen area district. This is the only surviving trace of the Hanseatic League, the trade alliance that once spanned Northern Europe all the way into Russia. 

The next day, leave Bergen and travel overland to Voss, the well-known ski resort with its background of snowy mountain peaks. After a short stay, continue your journey through the Naeroy Valley to Stalheim with its magnificent views of the Stalheim Gorge where you will overnight. 

The following morning, proceed through the Naeroy Valley to Gudvangen where you board a ferry that takes you along the Naeroyfjord, a picturesque but narrow fjord. Disembark at the village of Flam where you will have some free time. Continue later along the Aurlandsfjord. En route, stop at Borgund Stave Church before finally finishing up in Fagernes, where you'll stay overnight. 

Leaving the fjords behind and travel to Oslo, the Norwegian capital, which is beautifully situated alongside its own fjord. On arrival, enjoy a tour of the city, which includes the Opera House situated right on the Oslo fjord where you will spend some time on the terrace area before heading off to Bygdoy Island. Unique Vigeland Park here is one of the major Scandinavian cultural treasures with the open-air sculptures of Gustav Vigeland. Also pass by the Royal Palace and the main thoroughfare of Oslo, Karl Johan Street. 

Close out your Scandinavia vacation by passing into Sweden and stopping in the capital city, Stockholm. Built on an archipelago of 14 islands and connected by 57 bridges, Stockholm is a compact, gorgeous city boasting impeccable style. Take a sightseeing tour to get acquainted with the sights. Start with the old town of Gamla Stan, where you'll wind through narrow cobblestone avenues and admire the Scandinavian architecture. Next, visit the Blue Hall at Stockholm City Hall, where the Nobel Prize Ceremony is held each year. Also, be sure to examine the remains of old warships at the Vasa Museum, Scandinavia's most popular museum, before ending your Scandinavia vacation by taking advantage of Stockholm's vibrant dining scene.
