Vacation Overview

Breathtaking scenery, the Arctic Circle, train rides, cruises, vibrant cities, and so much more await you on this marvelous Scandinavia and Russia tour. Scenic highlights include a fantastic, overnight cruise from Copenhagen to Norway in first-class, outside, two-berth cabins with private facilities and dinner included; a train ride between Oslo and Bergen, considered to be one of the world's most scenic train rides; a ferry ride from Sweden to Denmark; a ride on the high-speed Sapsan train in Russia; and a spectacular ride on the Flåm train with some of Norway's most magnificent scenery, including Kjosfossen Waterfall, with its water cascading down the mountainside—a special experience offered by Globus.

Spend time in the Arctic Circle—land of the "Midnight Sun"—where you will visit the North Cape Visitor Center, marking the endpoint of the European mainland. Here, stand at the sheer cliff rising 1,000 feet from the Atlantic Ocean and feel like you're at the end of the world. In the Arctic Circle, also enjoy ferry crossings on the Ullsfjord and Lyngenfjord, which offer breathtaking views of the Lyngen Alps, with their blue glaciers, and mountain peaks rising more than 3,280 feet directly from the fjord. Visit Alta's rock carvings, a UNESCO World Heritage Site demonstrating a human settlement dating from 4,200 to 500 BC. Admire crystal-clear streams, sparkling lakes, tundra, and forests as you head south to Finland's Lapland and cross back over the Arctic Circle. Special experiences offered by Globus are highlight visits to the Santa Claus Village, where you receive your Arctic Circle Certificate, and to a Husky Farm. Your flights from Oslo to Tromsø and from Rovaniemi to Helsinki are included, and three nights in Helsinki allow the opportunity to join an optional excursion to Tallinn in Estonia.In Russia, visit St. Petersburg’s world-famous Hermitage Museum and enjoy a specialty dinner; and Moscow’s Red Square and the Kremlin, plus the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, and the Novodevichy (New Maiden) Convent!

On this Scandinavia and Russia tour, you'll also spend time in the cities and enjoy guided sightseeing in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Bergen, Oslo, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, and Moscow. All of this—and much more—are included on this spectacular once-in-a-lifetime vacation!
