What's included in this trip
Scandinavia Explorer SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Oslo, Norway's bustling capital, has much to offer - fascinating museums, outdoor activities, an eclectic array of buildings, a quirky nightlife and all easily explored by foot.
This beautiful city is surrounded by water on three sides and flanked by hills on the fourth. Bergen is Norway's 'gateway to the fjords' and full of cultural and scenic gems.
The fjords of Norway are long watery inlets filled with glaciers, mountains, sheer cliffs, valleys, waterfalls and scenery out of a dream.
Famous for hosting the 1994 Winter Olympics, Lillehammer is an ideal spot for outdoor activities and has a fascinating outdoor museum and charming town centre.
Head to the lakeside village Mora, a laidback town that encapsulates the most Swedish of Swedish landscapes. Be charmed by tiny countryside villages with red log cottages, pine forests and rolling meadows, and admire the work of a meteorite that crashed into the Earth millions of years ago, forming what is today Lake Siljin. Mora is also the home of artist Anders Zorn and the world’s biggest cross-country ski race, the Vasaloppet. Perhaps take a leisurely boat trip across the lake, sink a line to partake in a little fishing or hike around the gentle rolling surrounds.
Stockholm, Sweden's capital, is sometimes referred to as 'the Venice of the north' and has a great deal to offer with its architecture, parks and clear waters.
An archipelago in the Baltic Sea, the Aland Islands consist of 6,500 skerries and islands, has a very flat terrain and is part of Finland but speaks Swedish.
A city with a strong sea-faring history and its heart located at its harbour, Helsinki is dynamic, fascinating and full of interesting architecture and cool places to visit.
