We custom-design each trip to suit our client's wishes: we have many different destinations to choose from, and we're very familiar with the unique style and opportunities for each. We'll help plan the very best tour for you.
For the American tourist without any Scandinavian background, we might suggest...
Perhaps we'd recommend a stay in Copenhagen with visits to Tivoli, the Little Mermaid, The Royal Palace with the Danish Royal Guard. Or perhaps a day-excursion to Elsinore Castle, the setting for Hamlet - or a 3 day/ 2 night Fairy Tale trip to Odense, Hans Christian Andersen's home town.
We can do the East, West, South and North with ease... Typically we combine Oslo and Bergen (the gateway to the fjord country) and a fjord experience at either the Hardanger or Sognefjord and a visit to Edvard Grieg's home "Troldhaugen."
A popular trip might start in Oslo and end in Bergen: 3 nights/days in Oslo with visits to the Vigeland Sculpture Park, the world famous Holmenkollen Ski Jump, the Viking Ships, the Kontiki Raft and the Polar Ship Fram. We'd suggest a visit to The Munch Museum, famous for the painting "The Scream" and "Madonna." Travel by a 3 day/2 night escorted coach tour to Bergen or independently by the Bergen Railway, a scenic journey and an engineering marvel.
Visit "Bryggen," the old Hanseatic wooden structures dating back to the Middle Ages. Visit Haakons Hall with the Rozenkrantz Tower dating back to 1247. On the way to Edvard Grieg's Troldhaugen, make a stop at Fantoft Stave Church. Bergen is a "stroll" through history dating back to pre-Christianity Norway up to the current time of wealth from the North Sea Oil.
From Bergen you can take a "steamer" called "Hurtigruta" up the scenic coast of Norway past the North Cape to Hammerfest by the Russian border.
In Sweden, visit Stockholm with Drottningholm Palace and Oldtown. The Vasa Ship, a 17th-century man-of-war ship, is housed in Stockholm. From Stockholm, you can branch out south, east or north and sail on the Gota Canal - or visit Swedish "Lapland."
