Itinerary

Expand All

Day 1: Start Copenhagen

Location: Copenhagen

Accommodation: Scandic Sydhaven (or similar)

Meals Included: Dinner

Good afternoon globe-roamers and welcome to your first stop of memory-making magic. After a bit of a mingle with the new squad we'll be getting into the spirit of our imminent adventures in Copenhagen. We've got all day tomorrow to suss out the city, so after an orientation tour, tonight can stay reserved for Contiki hangs if you're feeling social.

Day 2: Copenhagen

Location: Copenhagen

Accommodation: Scandic Sydhaven (or similar)

Meals Included: Breakfast

Constantly named amongst the most liveable cities in the world, Copenhagen is an artwork of locals on bicycles, Danish pastries in cute café windows, & Renaissance architecture. Being a bustling university town and home to the hippie hood of Freetown Christiania, nightlife and unique culture can be found at every turn.

Day 3: Copenhagen To Oslo

Location: Copenhagen, Oslo

Accommodation: Scandic Helsfyr (or similar)

Meals Included: Breakfast

Before you go bursting out of your travel clothes thanks to your new-found pastry dependency, we're bailing on Denmark. Next stop: Norway!  To the call of castles, fresh seafood, & pretty parks, we respond! Today we're taking on Norway. We'll be surrounded by 200 bronze statues eating Krumkaker pastries before we can say "jeg elsker Norge!" (that's "I love Norway," folks).

Day 4: Oslo

Location: Oslo

Accommodation: Scandic Helsfyr (or similar)

Meals Included: Breakfast

Oslo, both the capital and biggest city of Norway, is a riverside metropolis back-dropped by mountains of greenery and filled with easy-going culture. Pottering around museums and pretty buildings will keep us busy by day, while taking a stroll through the city should keep you busy by night.

Day 5: Oslo To Elverum

Location: Oslo, Lillehammer, Elverum

Accommodation: Thon Hotel Elgstua (or similar)

Meals Included: Breakfast

Oslo, it’s been amazing, but today we’re making tracks for the traditional city of Elverum, with a brief stop-off along the way. 
Hey hey, Lillehammer! Upon arrival we could take a stroll through the city or hop on the Lillehammer Olympic Track bobsleigh, Northern Europe's only artificially frozen bob. All done for the day? We've got more epic surprises tomorrow, so make sure to rest up.
With plenty of churches and lakes, things are bound to feel authentically Scandinavian here in Elverum, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Day 6: Elverum To Torgås

Location: Elverum, Torgås

Accommodation: Torgåsgården (or similar)

Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Rise and shine! More adventures await us today. We're crossing the border from Norway to Sweden, so keep an eye out for the famous Vasaloppet start line. For dinner tonight, we’ll tuck into a traditional Norwegian speciality – reindeer stew served with mashed potatoes and lingonberry. It’s enough to warm the cockles of your heart.

Day 7: Torgås

Location: Torgås

Accommodation: Torgåsgården (or similar)

Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Today you’ll wake up in Torgåsgården – a Contiki Special Stay renowned for its jaw-dropping natural beauty. We’ll head out for a hike during the day (with snowshoes if there’s snow, plus lunch cooked over an open fire). We’ll also be joined by some huskies… so be prepared for a cuteness overload.

Day 8: Torgås To Stockholm

Location: Torgås, Stockholm

Accommodation: Generator Stockholm (Stockholm, Sweden)

Meals Included: Breakfast

Leaving Dalarna behind and bidding farewell to the orange Dala horse (Sweden's national symbol), we're headed to the capital today. Stockholm, here we come!
After checking into our stylish Generator accommodation, it’s off for an orientation tour of the city before dinner.

Day 9: Stockholm

Location: Stockholm

Accommodation: Generator Stockholm (Stockholm, Sweden)

Meals Included: Breakfast

Wander the quaint medieval streets of Gamla Stan & try to catch the changing of the guard at the Royal Palace. All that ground covered will earn you some Swedish salmon & an Absolut on the rocks – but don’t forget to save room for your evening meatballs….

Day 10: End Stockholm

Location: Stockholm

Meals Included: Breakfast

Our trip finishes after breakfast today but Scandinavia will live on in our memories for years to come. Swap contact details and start planning your next adventure!

My amazing trip to Africa

13-Jan-2023

Sherif was an excellent tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about every single small detail at each site that we visited. In addition to his great service, he has a glowing spirit that made me feel like I had family with me the entire trip. Anything that I was concerned about, he always had an answer and was there to help. I truly enjoyed my experience and will purchase a tour with him in the future
