The day concludes with a welcome dinner at a local Stockholm restaurant.
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.

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.
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.

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.
Accommodation Name: Hotel Alexandra
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.
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.
Accommodation Name: Hotel Brosundet
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.
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.
