As the Midnight Sun turns night into day, Scandinavia shines. It’s the perfect time to visit, with the majestic countryside at its loveliest, and cities at their liveliest. Our small group encounters Scandinavia at its best, both on and off the beaten path. A morning tour introduces us to the most livable of cosmopolitan cities, Copenhagen. As we visit Rosenborg Palace, see the popular Little Mermaid statue, and stroll along the narrow, historic streets of downtown to City Hall Square. Travel by ferry to Lofthus where we begin our exploration of Norway’s stunning western fjord district. Board the Flam Railway for a thrilling hour-long excursion through 2,000-foot deep Flam Valley, hurtling through 20 tunnels spiraling in and out of mountains, passing the Kjosfossen Waterfall, and across the Flam River three different times. Tour the lively fish market and colorful 14th-century Hanseatic merchants’ quarter of Bryggen in picturesque Bergen. Discover the beauty of Geirangerfjord and enjoy lunch at a local farm. Then, travel to Lillehammer, famed ski resort that hosted the 1994 Winter Olympics, and marvel at the renowned ski jump. Visit the pastoral Norwegian capital of Oslo before continuing on to Sweden. In Tallberg, we have the opportunity to view craftsmen as they carve the famed Dala wooden horses at a local workshop. Conclude this comprehensive tour of Scandinavia in Stockholm, the Swedish capital built on 14 islands connected by 57 bridges.
