Norway has a surprisingly strong jazz scene. Get on your dancing shoes and head into town. Hidden alleys and lane-ways are hip places for live music.
Oslo is an irresistible city built on innovation and surrounded by mountains and seas. After meeting your fellow travellers and tour manager, swap your travel plans over dinner tonight.
Stay: Two Nights, Oslo, Thon Hotel Opera
Nestled between pristine forests and the Oslofjord, Norway's capital is one of Europe’s fastest-growing cities. Absorb its rich history on a guided walking tour of the Royal Palace, National Theatre, Parliament, Opera House and Akershus fortress. Afterwards, a fjord boat tour takes in sights including Hovedøya, the Dyna Lighthouse, the Bygdøy peninsula and Fram Museum. With some of the afternoon free, why not face Munch's The Scream at the National Gallery, taste the local culinary – elk, or try to see Gustav Vigeland’s 212 sculptures in Frogner Park.
Another day, another rail adventure. Leaving Oslo after a free morning, enjoy the Scandinavian scenery as you head to the Swedish capital by train. Liberal-thinking and home to a giant technology scene, Stockholm is an open blend of Old and New world.
Stay: Three Nights, Stockholm, Scandic Klara or Scandic Continental
For a truly Swedish experience, try a cinnamon roll at Sundbergs Konditori, Stockhol's oldest café.
Get an in-depth insight of Stockholm today, discovering some of the city’s famous sights and world-class architecture by foot. Walk the cobblestoned streets of Gamla Stan before stopping by the Royal Palace and City Hall. Afterwards, cruise around the city’s archipelago for a unique perspective of the Venice of the North.
Your last day in Stockholm has endless options to fill your free time. Perhaps head underground to see the world’s longest art exhibition, dance through the ABBA Museum, or, if you’re daring, strip off and jump into the waters of Lake Källtorpssjön. Before you leave, don’t forget to have some Swedish meatballs – served with creamy mashed potatoes, thick gravy and lingonberry jam.
Over 400 kilometres of cycle paths snake through the capital. So, take advantage of the clean air and rent a bike.
It's onwards by train to Copenhagen, where you’ll check into your hotel. Should you have the energy, the hotel is a ten minute walk from Tivoli Gardens.
Stay: Two Nights, Scandic Copenhagen
By coach, get to know the city's gems including Amalienborg Palace, Christiansborg Palace, Nyhavn canal, the Royal Opera House and Little Mermaid statue. Copenhagen’s waterways then await! Board a boat for a canal cruise of the city and drift past the churches, castles, and town-houses. After, whether you are looking for a quick bite or a gourmet experience, you certainly won’t go hungry. The rest of the day is yours to explore!
Bid farewell as your adventure ends today.
