icon Day 1: Copenhagen (Denmark)

Meals Included:

  Dinner


Quirky cities filled with delish food, fascinating culture and the most attractive people you’ve ever seen – welcome to Scandinavia! Touch down in uber-cool Copenhagen, dump your stuff and meet the gang. We may be a mixed bunch, but we’re all in it together. Get your bearings on a walking tour – ticking off the likes of Tivoli Gardens, City Hall, Nyhavn and the National Musuem of Denmark – before taking a stroll along the canal to see the bright townhouses. You’ll soon find out why this city keeps popping up among the top most livable cities in the world. Then tonight? Dinner is on us. Skål (read: cheers) to that!

icon Day 2: Copenhagen

Free day FTW! What’s up first? Hire a bike and explore this chilled-out Scandi city on two wheels. Wander along the waterfront in Nyhavn. Tuck into a smorgasbord of Nordic cuisine. Take a dip in the harbour baths (clothing optional, turning Smurf-blue from cold obligatory). Discover the city’s thriving craft beer scene. Or strap on some skates and show off your best Bambi impression at one of the city’s seasonal ice rinks. For dinner tonight, gather the fam and head to Gasoline Grill – the definition of ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’.

icon Day 3: Copenhagen – Oslo (Norway)

Meals Included:

  Breakfast


No lies, today is an early start. So, settle in, bust the tunes and get to know your trip mates better. Oh, and make sure you snag a window seat – the views from Øresund Bridge are once-in-a-lifetime. When we roll into Oslo we’ll get our bearings on a walking tour – ticking off the likes of The Royal Palace, Parliament, Oslo Cathedral and the National Theatre. Then? We know this place is pretty exxy, so quiz your Trip Leader on where the cheap eats are at. Hot dogs, grilled cheese, falafels – one of each pls. Gotta keep warm, right?

icon Day 4: Oslo

There’s a reason you came in winter – and today’s your chance to experience alllll the glittering-snow-dusted-magic of a Norway ski resort. Sign up for a full day on the slopes and get shredding. Staying in town? No worries. History buffs should check out Akershus Fortress. Culture fiends can hunt down a local sauna (they’re everywhere). Art lovers can’t miss Vigeland Park. And the foodies? Head to trendy Grünerløkka and eat your heart out. If it’s been snowing, tick ‘ski on top of an Opera House’ off your bucket list. Or head to Spikersuppa for a spot of night ice skating. This is the winter vibe you’ve been chasing.

icon Day 5: Oslo

Topdeckers to mission control, requesting more time to explore. Permission granted. Today is 100% up to you. But if you need some suggestions, jump on board an optional trip out to Bygdøy (aka Museum Island). We’re talking the Kon-Tiki Museum, Fram Polar Ship and the Norsk Folkemuseum. Get the ferry back to Oslo port in your own time – then round up the group and head to a local haunt for some pølse. Or hunt down Illegal Burger for the best one you’ve ever had. Period. And tonight? Spice up your life with a glass of aquavit (the local tipple) at uber-cool Himkok bar. Think gin, but herbier.

icon Day 6: Oslo – Stockholm (Sweden)

Meals Included:

  Breakfast


More than just meatballs and ABBA (though there’s plenty of both) – we’re making tracks to the iconic Scandi city of Stockholm. Fun fact: this place is built on an archipelago of fourteen islands where the Lake Mälaren flows out to the Baltic Sea. Cool, right? Check off Gamla Stan, Parliament House, Riddarholmen Church and The Royal Palace on a walking tour – then the rest is up to you. If your budget will allow it, Restaurant Pelikan boasts some seriously drool-worthy traditional food. Or head to Meatballs for the People – ‘nuff said.

icon Day 7: Stockholm

Meals Included:

  Dinner


Quick maths: this is your last full day. So don’t F-about, get exploring! Get yourself a kanebullar for the road and swing by the boutique stores in Gamla Stan. Snap a pic at Stortorget and watch the changing of the guard at The Palace. Take the ferry across to Djurgården and hit up the Vasa Museum (a must), Skansen Museum and the ABBA Museum. Or head to ultra-hip Södermalm for a local vibe and trendy cafes. There’s even a guided tour of City Hall on offer, if you're keen. Whatever you choose, make sure you’re back in time for tonight’s group dinner – we’re going to give this Scandi adventure the send-off it deserves!

icon Day 8: Stockholm – Copenhagen (Denmark)

Meals Included:

  Breakfast


Wave goodbye to Sweden – after one final group brekkie we’re taking the scenic route back to Denmark. Cue: frosted lakes and snow-capped forests for days. Time to swap those socials and say those goodbyes (no crying). But who said the adventure has to end here? Western Europe is just a stone’s throw away...

    What’s your vax status?

    I’m fully vaccinated (or soon will be): if you’ll be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at least two weeks before your trip begins, you’re good to go! You’ll just need to show proof of this to your Trip Leader on the day your trip departs. Please bring an electronic and/or printed copy of your vaccination status showing your full name (the one on your passport, obvs) and the date your last required dose of the vaccine was given – which must be at least 14 days before departure.
    I’m medically exempt: if you’re unable to be vaccinated against COVID-19 for medical reasons, you’ll need to provide us with a few things before your trip begins. This will include a copy of an official government exemption, or a letter from your doctor, emailed to us at least 14 days before your trip departs. You’ll also need to take a PCR test three days before your trip and email us the result. If we do not receive these within the given time – or your PCR test result is positive – you will not be able to travel with us. Please also bring electronic and/or printed copies of your medical exemption and negative PCR test result with you on your trip.
    I’ve not been vaccinated: if you’ve not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and you’re not exempt from having the vaccine for medical reasons, unfortunately you won’t be able to travel with us. We’re super serious about the safety of our Topdeckers and the communities we visit. For that reason, you must be fully vaccinated to join us – unless you are medically exempt.
