Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Beyond the deep fjords, glaciers and islands that dot the Scandinavian coastline, there are distinctly different cultures that will make your visit to Denmark, Norway and Sweden a journey of discovery.

Day 1 - Arrive Copenhagen (2 Nights)
Welcome to Copenhagen - the enchanting Danish capital that inspired Hans Christian Andersen to share tales of mermaids, queens and ugly ducklings with the world. Spend the day embracing its quintessential hygge found throughout its charming streets before enjoying a late afternoon orientation drive and Welcome Reception with your Travel Director and travel companions.
Accommodation: Marriott
Meals: Welcome Reception

Day 2 - Copenhagen Sightseeing and Free Time
Join a 'Local Specialist' today for a fascinating sightseeing and walking tour of the iconic sights of Copenhagen. The Amalienborg Palace Quarter takes centre stage as you admire its 18th-century façades and equine statue of King Frederik V at its centre. We'll see the 17th-century Stock Exchange, Christianborg Palace and the Neo-Classical Cathedral before paying tribute to the tragic Little Mermaid who was willing to give up her life in the sea to become human. Spend the rest of the day on your own, strolling through the city's streets, or embrace your inner child in Europe's oldest amusement park, the Tivoli Gardens. This evening, consider taking to Copenhagen's waters and enjoying a canal cruise with stunning city views.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 - Copenhagen – Odense – Randers
We leave the fairy tales behind for the Danish island of Funen, and Odense, the city where Hans Christian Andersen was born. Continuing across the pastoral landscapes of the Jutland Peninsula, we arrive in Randers, with its cosy half-timbered merchant houses and narrow medieval streets. Tonight, we stay at one of Trafalgar's 'Stays with Stories' - the Hotel Randers, one of the oldest hotels in the area with original artwork and a VIP-rich guestbook.
Accommodation: Randers
Meals: Breakfast

Day 4 - Randers – Stavanger
Set sail from Hirtshals across the Skagerrak to the port of Kristiansand in Norway. Drive north past fjords, lakes and forests to the port city of Stavanger, one of Norway's oldest settlements - its heritage still evident in the beautifully preserved wooden buildings that date back to the 18th century.
Accommodation: Scandic Forum
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 5 - Stavanger – Bergen (2 Nights)
Norway's spellbinding natural landscapes provide an inspiring backdrop for our island hop from Stavanger. Arriving in Bergen this afternoon, we delve into the city's Hanseatic heritage, enjoying an orientation tour past the 13th-century Haakon's Hall, the bustling fish market and colourful Bryggen Quarter. This evening, we 'Connect With Locals' for a 'Be My Guest' dinner, visiting the Øvre-Eide farm, worked for five generations by the same family.

Please Note: If your trip starts in Copenhagen on a Thursday, your 'Be My Guest' dinner in Bergen, will take place on day 6 of this trip.
Accommodation: Scandic Neptun
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 6 - Bergen Free Day
Enjoy a full free day in the cultural centre of Bergen or ascend its funicular for spectacular views of the fjords and islands. Consider an Optional Experience to Telavåg, which played a significant role in the secret North Sea boat traffic between Norway and Great Britain during World War II.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 7 - Bergen – Flåm Railway – Sognefjord
We drive east to the popular ski resort of Voss, where we'll board a train ascending over 860 metres above sea level. 'Dive Into Culture' on one of the world's most exciting train journeys, through the Flåm Valley past the Kjosfossen and legendary forest spirit who dances in front of the waterfall to lure men into the mountains. Later, arrive in Sognefjord, the 'King of the Fjords', where we will stay overnight at one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories'.
Accommodation: Sognefjord
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 8 - Sognefjord – Geiranger (2 Nights)
Norway's incredible glacier countryside surrounds us as we follow the spectacular Sognefjord to Geirangerfjord - its deep blue waters surrounded by majestic snow-capped peaks and lush green landscapes, which we will have an opportunity to explore. Tonight, we stay on the shores of the fjord at one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories' - Hotel Geiranger.
Accommodation: Geiranger
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 9 - Geiranger Free Day
Spend a full day admiring this spectacular natural wonder. Cascading waterfalls tumble down sheer cliffs into the glacial waters below, which you can explore by kayak or boat, soaking up the crisp, clean mountain air. Consider an Optional Experience to the Trollstigen and see Norway's most famous mountain road, travelling past steep mountain slopes, tumbling cascades and fertile valleys. After a day in intoxicating natural surrounds, we dine in our hotel this evening.
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 10 - Geiranger – Lom – Lillehammer
A scenic drive from Geiranger through high peaks brings us to Lom, the gateway to the Jotunheimen Mountains. Here we will visit a 12th-century wooden Stave church, adorned with Runic inscriptions, paintings and carved dragon figures that are said to protect it against evil. We continue through the Gudbrandsdalen Valley, the inspiration for Ibsen's 'Peer Gynt', before arriving in Lillehammer, the proud host of the 1994 Winter Olympics. This evening before dinner, consider a walk along Storgata or visit the open-air museum at Maihaugen.
Accommodation: Scandic
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 11 - Lillehammer – Oslo Sightseeing and Free Time
See the unusual Olympic ice arena beside the lake at Hamar as we travel to Norway's cultural capital, Oslo.

We visit the fascinating Vigeland Sculpture Park, before spending the rest of the day at leisure. Enjoy a leisurely coffee in the Akker Bryge District or explore the nation's rich seafaring heritage.

Thanks to Trafalgar and our guide, the Scandinavia tour was a trip of a lifetime. I would highly recommend

By Suthatip R on Jun 02, 2019

The hotels (except Marriott hotel) are not impressed, no a/c. If I know in advance I will not book it

By Sarabjit S on Aug 19, 2018

Too many Optional Packages. Some of these packages could have been included in the tour. Otherwise, the trip was to our expectations. 

By John J on Jun 17, 2018

Should have been warned about lack of A/C at most hotels.

By Diane G on Jun 08, 2018

Everything about the tour was terrific.

By Vijay J on Aug 27, 2017

The Trafalgar tour of Scandinavian countries was probably the best choice to visit three countries - Denmark, Norway and Sweden in less than two weeks and yet be able to travel through the most spectacular sights in the world. We traveled by bus, boat, train and a combination of these modes - bus on a boat! All the hotels offered good breakfast and some of the USA based chains were far superior to the local ones in terms of amenities they offered such as coffee pots in the room or tea/coffee. Otherwise the service was quite good. Trafalgar's tour director and the driver were exceptionally professional, efficient and knowledgeable. All in all, a good trip with lots of memories.

By Carole K on Jul 02, 2016

director was a great multi-tasker and certainly had a lot of problems to contend with - great job!

By Jean C on Jun 26, 2016

Of the six tours we have taken with Trafalgar, this one scored at the bottom of the list. Everything was very well done and the tour director was excellent, but somehow the Scandinavian trip lacked the excitement of former trips. The fjords and Norwegian mountains were beautiful, but the optional offerings were not as interesting as those in other tours. There was also a second Trafalgar bus that followed about fifteen or twenty minutes behind us which made the stops crowded. It was as though there were 96 people on the tour instead of 48. There were separate tour directors, but I definitely didn't like the second bus. I do believe that Trafalgar is an excellent company...it's just that this tour didn't meet our expectations.

By Mary S on May 08, 2016

As a retired, single woman, I am so comfortable traveling solo with Trafalgar on their various tours. Absolutely loved last year's tour of England & Scotland with Military Tatoo experience, just finished Scandinavia & Fjords tour with the enjoyment of May 17 Constitution Heritage Days experience, and am looking forward to Grand Italian Experience tour this Sept. 2016. Thanks for great trips & memories.

By Barbara H on Sep 20, 2015

This was our 5th trip with Trafalgar. We were a bit disappointed with the overall experience. Many of the rooms were not up to the standard we had received in the past. As well as the hotel staff. We didn't think this tour guide was as good as the previous tours. The optional tours were all very excellent. We will probably give Trafalgar another try because of the past positive experiences.

By Howe C on Aug 09, 2015

Very little time and very few included sightseeing, most of the time was used for optional excursions.

By Charles S on Aug 02, 2015

A new bus without foot rests was not comfortable.

By Joyce C on Jul 13, 2014

Above and beyond my expectations. The tour guide was informative, courteous, fun, and shared lots of interesting information along the way.

By Jane B on Jun 30, 2013

Trafalgar was outstanding and will be my "go to" providers in the future. This was a truly wonderful trip with lasting memories. I've already recommended it to others!
