Capitals of Scandinavia

Visiting 6 Cities

Your itinerary

Day 1 – Fly In and Welcome to Copenhagen

Hans Christian Andersen would have been right at home in 21st-century Copenhagen. The Danish capital hasn’t lost any of its fairy-tale flair over the centuries, as you’ll come to discover when you spend your first day exploring this colorful city. On arrival, transfer to your Stays with Stories accommodation, the historic Phoenix Hotel in the heart of Copenhagen’s most elegant district.  Discover the hotel’s rich history from the late 17th century, through the World Wars and today, restored to its former glory. Then, spend your free time soaking up the sunshine with the fun-loving locals before joining your Travel Director and fellow travelers for a Welcome Reception.  Hotel – Phoenix

Day 2 – Explore Historic Copenhagen

Connect with the heartfelt hygge of your Danish hosts when you join a Local Specialist this morning for a sightseeing tour that will reveal all the highlights of Copenhagen’s Old Town. See the distinctive dragon-tail spire of the 17th-century Børsen (Stock Exchange), Christiansborg Palace and the Little Mermaid, demurely seated on a rock overlooking Langelinie Promenade. See the home of Denmark’s beloved royal family, Amalienborg Palace, then spend the rest of the day exploring Copenhagen your way. Enjoy a cold beverage while overlooking the colorful façades of Nyhavn or perhaps join an Optional Experience to the Danish Riviera, past ancient fishing villages to the 17th-century Frederiksborg Castle.  Breakfast

Day 3 – Journey to Oslo

For now, it’s a fond farewell to Copenhagen and a bright and cheery hello to Sweden, as you cross the Øresund by ferry and wind your way north, through the Swedish countryside past Gothenburg to Norway. You’ll want to keep your camera at the ready to capture the scenic landscapes that line your route to Oslo, Norway’s down-to-earth capital, where the Norwegian philosophy can be felt along the flower-lined boulevards and bustling waterfront promenades.  Breakfast – Hotel – Scandic Solli

Day 4 – Vikings and More in Oslo

Tread in the footsteps of the Vikings this morning as you join your Local Specialist for a sightseeing tour that will reveal Oslo’s long-standing seafaring heritage. See the medieval fortress of Akershus, the elegant Royal Palace and Oslo Opera House, which seems to rise from the water in all its marble, granite and glass glory. Visit a wonderland of Norwegian sculptures left behind by Gustav Vigeland in his sculpture park, then enjoy a free afternoon to explore the city on your terms. You could choose instead to embark on an Optional Experience to see the three original Viking long-ships at the Viking Ship Museum and delve into Roald Amundsen’s spontaneous race to the South Pole at the Fram Museum.  Breakfast

Day 5 – Onwards to Stockholm

Enjoy a scenic drive south through Norway’s lush forest landscapes to Sweden, bound for its enchanting capital. You’ll journey through Karlstad situated on Lake Vänern, the largest lake in Sweden, and pass Örebro, with its 13th-century castle, before continuing to Stockholm. Indulge in a free evening to explore ‘Beauty on Water’, as the locals refer to their capital. Consider joining an Optional Experience to the cobbled Gamla Stan to admire its medieval history on a walking tour, followed by a traditional Swedish meal in a local restaurant.  Breakfast – Hotel – Elite Palace

Day 6 – Discover Beautiful Stockholm

Style and substance are things Stockholm has in abundance, as you’ll discover when you join your Local Specialist for a sightseeing tour this morning. See Stockholm’s historic mother church, Storkyrkan, and the Royal Palace, then Dive into Culture and visit the City Hall. You’ll have some free time this afternoon to join the locals for their afternoon coffee break and embrace the Swedish scenery before joining your fellow travelers at an exclusive eco- friendly Be My Guest experience and Connect with Locals over dinner amidst the former hunting and fishing grounds of Swedish kings.   Breakfast

Day 7 – Embark on an Overnight Cruise

A leisurely start to your day could see you embark on some last-minute souvenir shopping or savoring steaming sweet Swedish cinnamon rolls in Stortoget.  Consider an Optional Experience to the Vasa Museum. The cool capital of Finland beckons as you board your overnight cruise to Helsinki, passing through Stockholm’s archipelago as you watch the sun set over the Baltic Sea.  Breakfast

Day 8 – Arrive in Vibrant Helsinki

Continue your cruise across the Baltic, arriving in Helsinki in time to join your Local Specialist for a sightseeing tour of all the city’s highlights, its Swedish and Russian heritage and some hidden gems. See the modern marble façades of Finlandia Hall, the Senate and the colorful stalls in Market Square before joining your fellow travelers for a Farewell Dinner. Raise a glass and toast to your epic adventure across the capitals of Scandinavia. Kippis!  Breakfast – Hotel – Holiday Inn City Centre – Farewell Dinner

Day 9 – Farewell Scandinavia

After a memorable journey exploring the history and culture of four Scandinavian nations, all that’s left is to say a fond farewell to your new friends and prepare for your return journey home. Find out more about your free airport transfer. Breakfast

TravelKatz® Vacation Testimonials

I accompanied a group of 12 to Alaska this past summer.  We flew into Seattle, saw some of the sights, and then flew to Juneau to start our Adventure Cruise.  What a wonderful Adventure. We saw glaciers, hump-back whales and other fascinating things...we would do this again. Thank you for such a great time!

Sandy H, St Petersburg, FL

I cannot begin to tell you what a wonderful job you did organizing our trip. It absolutely was the best vacation I have ever had. This was my first time over seas and what a wonderful experience. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I am going through “James” withdraw today. He was an amazing tour guide and fit in so well with our group. I will definitely recommend you if I know of anyone thinking of going over to Ireland. Your country is so beautiful and everyone is so friendly. I can’t thank you enough for everything.

Jack & JoAnn Douglass, Miami, FL

I appreciated all the information that was given before I left on the trip. Our Guide, Jerry filled in all the other interesting information on what to expect. I felt safe, well feed and learned so much from a trip 45 mins from USA…I want people to see the beauty of the country, the people and their wonderful culture. I so loved the music. I am playing the CD’s often that I bought from the musicians. A trip I would like to do again. Thank you.
