Vacation Overview

Vibrant cities, distinct cultures, and unspoiled landscapes … welcome to your Scandinavia affordable tour! You’ll visit the fascinating Nordic cities and most scenic areas as well as some of its smaller and quaint towns. Overnight in Copenhagen, Frederikshavn, Oslo, the Telemark area, Bergen, the Fagernes area, Karlstad, and Stockholm.

As you would expect from a Scandinavia tour, the main feature is breathtaking scenery. Norway is known for its fjords—with their steep and majestic mountains and picturesque villages dotting the landscape. A highlight of this budget-minded Scandinavian tour is a cruise on the Sognefjord – Norway’s longest and deepest fjord. You’ll also cross the world’s fourth-largest fjord, the Hardangerfjord, by ferry.

Travel through Norway’s Telemark region with its lakes, winding valleys, and rugged gorges backed by towering mountains. Stop for photos at Steinsdalsfoss Waterfall, where you can walk behind the cascading waterfall without getting wet. Also enjoy a scenic drive along beautiful Lake Mjøsa. In Sweden, drive through the scenic Värmland – home to 10,000 lakes dotting the forested landscape. In Denmark, drive across the Great Belt Bridge – one of the world’s longest bridges – and take a ferry from Denmark to Sweden.

On this affordable tour of Scandinavia, spend time in the major cities: Copenhagen, capital of Denmark; Oslo, capital of Norway; Bergen, Norway’s picturesque second-largest city; and Stockholm, Sweden’s beautiful capital. You’ll enjoy an orientation drive of Copenhagen and guided sightseeing excursions of Oslo and Stockholm. Visit Lillehammer, site of the 1994 Winter Olympics, and take time for a photo stop at Sweden’s Gripsholm Castle – a fairytale castle built in 1537 and set in an enchanting rural setting on the way to Stockholm.

From the fascinating cities and small towns to the breathtaking landscapes, this value-minded Scandinavia tour has it all!
