Itinerary

icon Day 1: Arrive Stockholm

Location: Stockholm, Sweden

Accommodation Name: Sheraton Stockholm Hotel

Meals: Dinner

Tour begins: 5:30 PM, Sheraton Stockholm Hotel. A transfer is included from Stockholm's Arlanda Airport to the Sheraton Stockholm Hotel in the heart of Sweden's historic capital city. Late afternoon, join us for a visit to Stockholm's Vasa Museum, featuring the impressive Vasa, an ornate royal warship that sank in Stockholm's harbor following its launch in 1628 and was raised in 1961. The day concludes with a welcome dinner at a local Stockholm restaurant.

icon Day 2: A City Built on Islands

Location: Stockholm, Sweden

Accommodation Name: Sheraton Stockholm Hotel

Meals: Breakfast

Begin today's discovery of Sweden's capital with sightseeing including a guided visit to Stockholm's iconic City Hall, where the annual Nobel Prize award festivities take place. You'll see the Council Chamber; the Gold Room, whose walls are sparkling with 18 million pieces of gold mosaic and glass depicting events in Swedish and world history; and the famous Blue Room, misnamed because the architect changed his mind and left its beautiful red-brick walls intact. Stockholm sightseeing continues with a panoramic lakeside drive over bridges that crisscross between Stockholm’s small islands, offering views of Gamla Stan (Old Town) and a skyline of 17th- and 18th-century buildings, the Baltic Sea, Lake Malaren, the elegant Strandvagen waterfront, the inner harbor, the Royal Palace, the Cathedral and Parliament. The rest of the day is free to explore as you wish – perhaps take a canal tour, or walk through the cobbled streets of medieval Gamla Stan.

icon Day 3: Fly from Stockholm to Copenhagen

Location: Copenhagen, Denmark

Accommodation Name: Radisson Collection Royal Hotel, Copenhagen

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Take a morning flight from Stockholm's Arlanda Airport to Copenhagen, Denmark. After lunch at a local Copenhagen restaurant, embark on a city tour that includes a visit to one of Denmark's beautiful castles. If you wish, we've included admission to celebrated Tivoli Gardens, which you can visit at your leisure this evening with tickets provided by your Tauck Director. This city-center, 160+-year-old amusement park is set within a 20-acre garden; from thousands of blooms to a lakeside beer garden, fireworks, a roller coaster and evening music, it’s a Danish experience unto its own.

icon Day 4: A Private Tour of a Danish Palace

Location: Copenhagen, Denmark

Accommodation Name: Radisson Collection Royal Hotel, Copenhagen

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Head out from the city this morning to North Zealand, a region of woodlands, villages, lakes, royal parks and castles. You'll enjoy Tauck's early-entry, private visit to 17th-century Frederiksborg Palace, built atop three islands in a small lake, and considered one of the finest examples of Dutch Renaissance architecture. After a Danish family-style lunch in a local restaurant in North Zealand, return to "wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen." The afternoon and evening are free to explore as you wish, perhaps discovering the historic Nyhavn area and strolling along the Stroget, Copenhagen's main street; dinner is at a local restaurant tonight. 

icon Day 5: The Home of a Composer for the Ages

Location: Bergen, Norway

Accommodation Name: Clarion Collection Hotel Havnekontoret

Board a flight this morning from Copenhagen to Bergen on Norway's west coast. Upon arrival, have lunch at a local restaurant, then head to Troldhau­gen, the beloved Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg’s former lakeside villa, today a living museum and concert center; Norway's foremost composer is perhaps best known for his musical score for the play Peer Gynt. Return to Bergen and check into your hotel on Bergen's historic Bryggen waterfront, and enjoy the evening as you wish.

icon Day 6: A Stave Church Guarded by Dragons

Location: Bergen, Norway

Accommodation Name: Clarion Collection Hotel Havnekontoret

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Today, join your local guide for a morning tour of Bergen, known for its centuries-old maritime legacy as well as a reputation as an important hub for the arts. Your tour includes a visit to Fantoft Stave Church, a 1990s reconstruction of an original 12th-century stave church that was destroyed by fire in 1992. Many centuries ago, the construction of traditional, iconic Norwegian wooden stave churches began with the slotting of posts (staves) into the ground to support thousands of skillfully crafted timber parts, which included carved portals and dragons' head carvings on the roof. Following an afternoon at leisure, ride a ferry to dinner at a local restaurant, before returning to your hotel close to Bryggen, the city's old wharf district. Featuring traditional wooden buildings and a medieval atmosphere, Bryggen was founded in 1070 during the days of the Hanseatic League; one of the oldest large trading ports in Northern Europe, it is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

icon Day 7: Norwegian Fjord Country

Accommodation Name: Hotel Alexandra

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Journey northward today along the Norwegian coast, through photo-worthy landscapes that vary from wide-open fjords to green hills, icy glaciers and massive mountain ranges, as you set out from Bergen, ferry across part of the Songefjord from Oppedal to Lavik, and wind your way through the countryside to Loen, from which you'll explore Norway's inspiring fjordlands during a two-night stay at the venerable Hotel Alexandra, operated since 1884 by five generations of the Loen family. Enjoy a barbecue dinner tonight at the hotel.

icon Day 8: Briksdal Glacier & a "Troll Car" Ride

Accommodation Name: Hotel Alexandra

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Travel today to one of Norway’s most inspirational natural wonders – Briksdal Glacier, set between roaring waterfalls and mountain peaks at the end of one of the Nordfjord's three branches. Meltwater from the glacier has created three emerald-green lakes in the valley; a ride on a "Troll Car" past thundering waterfalls and a short hike to the foot of the glacier lead to views of absolutely stunning scenery. Enjoy a three-course lunch in Briksdal, then return to your resort to take advantage of its many amenities (some at additional cost) or explore Loen as you please.

icon Day 9: Vistas From Dalsnibba

Accommodation Name: Hotel Brosundet

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Your tour continues with a morning of unforgettable views — including some of the incomparable Geirangerfjord, one of the longest, deepest, and most scenic fjords in the world — as you drive from Loen to Oye, a serene alpine village on the Hjorundford, where you'll have lunch at the Hotel Union Oye, in operation since 1891 and a favorite retreat among the elite for decades. Continue on to Ålesund for a two-night stay; have dinner at your hotel tonight.

icon Day 10: Art Nouveau in Ålesund

Accommodation Name: Hotel Brosundet

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

The most important fishing harbor in Norway today, picturesque Ålesund is situated on seven islands on the Atlantic coast, linked by an intricate network of tunnels, carved out of granite. Join your local guide for a tour of the city, whose wealth of historic Art Nouveau (Jugenstil) structures were largely constructed between 1904 and 1907, after a fire had destroyed many of the community's buildings – making Ålesund one of Norway's leading repositories of Jugenstil architecture today. After a private lunch at a local restaurant, return to your hotel and spend the rest of the day and evening as you please in Ålesund.

Check into your hotel and enjoy the remainder of the day and evening as you please in Oslo.

icon Day 12: Vigeland Sculptures & Viking Ships

Location: Oslo, Norway

Accommodation Name: Grand Hotel Oslo

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

A city orientation tour of Oslo offers views of the city's striking modern opera house and downtown City Hall. With a local guide, take in the Vigeland Sculpture Park, with its 212 life-sized granite and bronze sculptures by famed Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland (1869–1943), who devoted his career to the project; spotlighting many works that carry a humanistic message, the park is a popular Oslo destination. Next up, view skillful Norwegian works of a mariner’s kind during a guided visit to the nearby Viking Ship Museum, featuring three well-preserved Viking ships dating to 800 AD, found in royal burial mounds with fascinating artifacts – representing some of the best-preserved Viking ships in the world.  Following a free afternoon in Oslo, please join us this evening for a farewell reception and dinner in the heart of the city.

Sweden and Denmark were great but Norway is by far the star of this tour.

A magnificant country.

The places and activities that Tauck took us to were more than we hoped for.

Our Tour Director went the extra mile every single day.

He was super organised, cheerful and helpful.

Our driver was great.

Sailing on our first fjord with the breathtaking views.

The camera just couldn't do justice to it.

We had our own private boat provided by Tauck and this just made the experience even more special.
