Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

The land of the Vikings, deep fjords and the Northern Lights - Norway, Denmark and Sweden serve up a stylish sojourn that will deliver the arresting beauty and captivating history you've come to expect from Scandinavia. Your 12-day adventure across 'the north' reveals centuries of trading heritage amidst region's colourful harbour façades and all the natural splendour befitting of the King and Queen of the fjords.

Day 1 - Arrive Copenhagen (2 Nights)
You're in for a whole lot of hygge when you hit the colourful, character-filled streets of Copenhagen, which kick-starts your journey across Scandinavia. This cool capital manages to mix fairy tale with function as you'll come to discover. Spend your day soaking up the sunshine in 17th-century Nyhavn or rubbing shoulders with the fun-loving locals in Tivoli Gardens, Europe's oldest amusement park. You'll meet your Travel Director and fellow travellers for dinner later at your hotel.
Accommodation: AC Hotel Bella Sky
Meals: Dinner

Day 2 - Copenhagen Sightseeing and Free Time
Discover why Copenhagen earns its status as one of the world's most liveable cities - a place where work and play are perfectly balanced. Your Local Specialist will take you on a sightseeing tour to the heart of the Old Town, through lively streets, squares and along canals, revealing many of the city's highlights, from the Royal Amalienborg Palace to Carlsberg Glyptotek. Snap a selfie with Copenhagen's demure Little Mermaid then spend the rest of the day exploring Copenhagen your way or join an Optional Experience to the Danish Riviera past ancient fishing villages to the 17th-century Frederiksborg Castle. This evening, you could choose to visit the village of Dragor with its tiny thatched cottages, followed by an hour-long cruise along the canals.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 - Copenhagen – Oslo (1 Night)
The next leg of your journey is filled with eye-catching landscapes that demand to be captured on camera. Your scenic drive from Denmark to Sweden will see you cross the Øresund by ferry, then skirt the Swedish coastline north past glittering blue bays and lush pine and spruce forests. Continue your journey past Gothenburg bound for Oslo, the Norwegian capital. Norway wears its pioneering past with subtlety. This city could claim great Viking victories. Instead, you'll encounter a modest, waterfront Oslo, where contemporary meets comfortable and the Norwegian philosophy of friluftsliv is palpable in its lush parks, flower-lined boulevards and bustling waterways.
Accommodation: Radisson Blu Alna
Meals: Breakfast

Day 4 - Oslo Sightseeing – Vrådal (1 Night)
Your Local Specialist will reveal all the highlights this morning, including the medieval fortress Akershus, the Town Hall and the Royal Palace. Visit the bronze, granite and cast iron fantasy-land left behind by Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland in the Vigeland Sculpture Park, the world's largest sculpture exhibition by a single artist. Later consider joining an Optional Experience to see the three original Viking longships and visit the Fram Museum where you'll delve into Roald Amundsen's spontaneous race to the South Pole. Leave the capital and head to Norway's Telemark region, renowned for its distinctive skiing technique which combines elements of Alpine and Nordic skiing. Tonight, you'll join your travel companions for dinner at your hotel.
Accommodation: Quality Straand
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 5 - Vrådal – Bergen (2 Nights)
Witness Mother Nature's magic touch on Norway as you wind your way through spectacular mountains and past Hardangerfjord, the 'Queen of the Fjords', to Bergen. The city's Hanseatic heritage is only second to the spectacular natural landscape that surrounds this enchanting coastal city, which is famously fringed by seven hills and seven fjords. The former capital of Norway has been a trading centre since the 13th century as you'll come to discover as you explore its historic heart, but today it is perhaps more celebrated for being the gateway to Norway's stunning fjordscapes.
Accommodation: Zander K
Meals: Breakfast

Day 6 - Bergen Sightseeing and Free Time
Nowhere is Norway's seafaring heritage more apparent than in Bergen, which was once the cod capital of the world and a lively port for traders seeking to spread its salty delights across Europe. Your orientation tour will introduce you to some of the city's highlights, including its fish market and the 13th-century Haakon's Hall, a former royal residence. You'll have some time to explore the harbour and the colourful wooden warehouses of UNESCO-listed Bryggen, the centre of Bergen's Hanseatic trade for centuries. Later this afternoon, consider joining an Optional Experience to visit the villa of famous composer Grieg and see where he was inspired to compose his masterworks. You could choose to delve into Norway's World War II history instead during a visit to the lost village of Televag, whose ties to the resistance saw it destroyed by the Gestapo.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 7 - Bergen – Sognefjord (Hafslo) (1 Night)
Norway's fjord country takes centre stage today as you head to the 'King of the Fjords', Sognefjord. Your scenic drive will pass Tvindefossen waterfall before arriving at the world's longest and deepest fjord. Here you'll have a rare opportunity as part of an Optional Experience to meet a local family on their working farm against the backdrop of the fjord, sampling their traditions that date back to Viking times. For nature lovers, there's an Optional Experience to board a cruise on the UNESCO-listed Nærøy Fjord whose stunning landscape has inspired painters for centuries. Tonight, join your travel companions for dinner at your hotel.
Accommodation: Eikum
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 8 - Sognefjord (Hafslo) – Fagernes (1 Night)
Buckle up for an exhilarating encounter with a land of myths and legends, trolls and giants as you head to Jotunheimen National Park. This is where Galdhøpiggen, Scandinavia's highest mountain, towers over the surrounding lakes, valleys, glaciers and snow-capped peaks - epic alpine scenery you'll want to capture on your camera along this scenic drive. Consider joining an Optional Experience to the Norwegian wilderness to learn about the huskies, boarding a sled ride through the Jotunheimen, followed by 'fire' coffee and cookies to warm your heart, soul and stomach.
Accommodation: Scandic Valdres
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 9 - Fagernes – Lillehammer – Karlstad (1 Night)
Tame your inner adventurer today during a visit to Lillehammer, in the heart of Norway. You'll discover what's great about the great outdoors as you see how this Norwegian ski resort turned Winter Olympics hub has become popular amongst adrenalin junkies. Continue through Norway's lush forest landscapes, through the cottage countryside of Sweden bound for Lake Vänern, on whose shores you'll stay tonight, surrounded by mountains, forests and fields. Take a deep breath and tune out this evening, embracing the simplicity of your surrounds.
Accommodation: Scandic Winn
Meals: Breakfast

Day 10 - Karlstad – Örebro – Stockholm (2 Nights)
Today's first stop is the lively university town of Örebro. View the 13th-century castle on the banks of the Svartån River before continuing to stylish Stockholm, which its locals refer to as 'beauty on water'. The beautiful blue jostles for your attention amidst lush green parks and a modern city where style and substance co-exist effortlessly. Get your bearings and explore Stockholm your way or delve into the story of the Vasa, a 17th-century warship which sank on her maiden voyage. This Optional Experience puts you right on the water as you board a cruise through Djurgården Canal along the shores of Saltsjön. Later this evening, join your travel companions for an optional walk in the colourful, cobbled Gamla Stan where little has changed since the 16th and 17th centuries, followed by a rousing Swedish meal in a favourite local restaurant.
Accommodation: Park Inn by Radisson Hammarby Sjostad
Meals: Breakfast

Day 11 - Stockholm Sightseeing and Free Time
Let this elegant town capture your heart as you explore it this morning with a Local Specialist. View the medieval Storkyrkan, the Town Hall and Royal Palace. This afternoon, maybe delve into the city's Viking treasures and discover its distinctive sense of style. An Optional Experience could see you visit Stockholm's City Hall and Skansen, the world's oldest open-air museum featuring five centuries of Swedish history. Or get your cameras ready for a 'pano' worthy of framing when you head to Sodermalm on an Optional Experience which includes a visit to the world's first Ice Bar. Say skål in glasses made of pure river ice, then join your fellow travellers later for dinner to celebrate the end of your Scandinavian adventure.
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 12 - Depart Stockholm
Your epic journey worthy of a Viking voyage has sadly come to an end. Say a fond farvel to new friends and close the curtain on a holiday filled with Scandinavian style, the majesty of Mother Nature and a whole lot of lagom as you prepare to return home. Airport transfers are available. Conditions apply.

I have gone on 5 Trafalgra trips and now one Cost Saving trip. The difference is the location of hotels in major cities. I will NOT go on any more Cost Saving trips but I will definitely go on Trafalgra trip in the future.

By Ivy K on May 08, 2019

The qualities of Costsaver tours simply don't match those provided by Trafalgar. The low-cost hotels are so off city centers that a lot of precious vacation time is wasted even to just go to the optional excursions. Money may be saved by traveling with Costsaver, time is wasted. I will definitely go back to Trafalgar tours again for my future trips,

By Angela R on Sep 19, 2018

Expect hotels to be further away from city center as a cost savings measure. Also, tour group was much larger than other companies I've traveled with.

By Elaine F on Aug 29, 2018

The trip had too much bus riding but I knew that ahead of time. Unlike prior Trafalgar Cost Saver trips I have previously taken, this one is now approaching more of Cosmo's lower standard. The hotels in Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm were located really far away from downtown. Stockholm's was 55 minutes by public transportation. They changed one hotel on the road to save money. I doubt I will take another Trafalgar Cost Saver trip because of this. But overall, I am satisfied with the value for the cost.

By Richard M on Aug 28, 2018

For a cost saver it didn't offer any savings. As the countries visited are too costly to eat out on your own. Dinners, lunch and some breakfasts were on your own cost so this adds significantly to trip cost. Some of the optional tours were worthless and too costly for what you got. This is not my experience in the past using Trafalgar. There were two occasions where the tour scheduled a dinner, limiting drinks and time. One drink is a joke. Previous tours provided unlimited wine. The food selections at these restaurants were of poor quality. There seemed to be a hustle to get thorough each meal and back to the hotel. In the past there was apple time to socialize. I would not recommend this tour to anyone and if Trafalgar operates their tours this way I will seek another operator. The highlights were the bus driver was exceptional.

By George I on Aug 01, 2018

It is what Trafalgar does not say about this trip that is critical. Scandinavia---think small countries and relatively short distances. Do these convert to easy bus travel and relatively early arrivals at each over night? NO WAY. Every day is in the bus until six o'clock PM and, if served, dinner at 7 pm. The reason is slow highways and many two lane roads. Throw a few ferry crossings in and you end up with long, in time, travel days; way longer than one would first anticipate.

By Leonard M on Jun 24, 2017

The Trafalgar family is the leader in the tour industry. They take customer service to the next level. If you want to feel appreciated and have the satisfaction of knowing your money is being well spent - look no further. I intentionally seek out tours with the Trafalgar name and will continue to do so in the future.
