A Scandinavian Journey: Norway, Finland, and Sweden (10 Days/ 9 Nights)

from $4,540

Norway ranks 17th in the World Economic Forum’s Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report. Every one in fifteen people throughout the country work in the tourism industry. Tourism is seasonal in Norway, with more than half of the total tourists visiting between the months of May and August.

The main attractions of Norway are the varied landscapes that extend across the Arctic Circle. It is famous for its fjord-indented coastline and its mountains, ski resorts, lakes, and woods. Popular tourist destinations in Norway include Oslo, Ålesund, Bergen, Stavanger, Trondheim, Kristiansand and Tromsø. Much of the nature of Norway remains unspoiled, and thus attracts numerous hikers and skiers. The fjords, mountains, and waterfalls in Western and Northern Norway attract several hundred thousand foreign tourists each year. In the cities, cultural idiosyncrasies such as the Holmenkollen ski jump attract many visitors, as do landmarks such as Bergen’s Bryggen and Oslo’s Vigeland Sculpture Park.

Finland is a Northern European nation bordering Sweden, Norway, and Russia. Its capital, Helsinki, occupies a peninsula and surrounding islands in the Baltic Sea. Helsinki is home to the 18th-century sea fortress Suomenlinna, the fashionable Design District, and diverse museums. The Northern Lights can be seen from the country’s Arctic Lapland province, a vast wilderness with national parks and ski resorts. If you always want to visit the original Santa’s North Pole residence, here it is in the Lapland Arctic Province.

Sweden is part of the geographical area of Fennoscandia. The climate is in general mild for its northerly latitude due to significant maritime influence. In spite of the high latitude, Sweden often has warm continental summers, being located in between the North Atlantic, the Baltic Sea, and vast Russia. The general climate and environment vary significantly from the south and north due to the vast latitudinal difference, and much of Sweden has reliably cold and snowy winters. Southern Sweden is predominantly agricultural, while the north is heavily forested and includes a portion of the Scandinavian Mountains.

Optional extension in arctic Finland available for 4 days, 3 nights for northern lights tour at the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort.

    Depart on a private first-class vehicle, together with your local authorized guide. The city of Stockholm, built on 14 islands and connected by 57 bridges, exudes a unique charm in its combination of 13th century Old Town with modern high-tech architecture. Stockholm’s islands are bordered by Lake Mälaren in the west and the Baltic Sea in the east, where the archipelago with its 30.000 islands awaits exploration. It is not surprising that the city has earned the nickname “Beauty on Water”. Renowned for its beauty, Stockholm is also the hub of the Baltic area with easy access to the Nordic capitals as well as the Baltic countries. The capital is a big city with a small-town personality. With its handy size and short walking distances, it is easy to cover a lot in a short amount of time. The sightseeing tour, which includes outside visits to the Old Town and the City Hall with its blue and golden halls known for hosting the Nobel festivities, make for a memorable morning tour. Discover a city of contrasts. Go back 750 years in time and feel the medieval atmosphere as you wander the narrow and cobbled streets of Old Town, or as the locals say ”Gamla Stan”. During our stroll through Old Town, we will pass by the seven- hundred -year -old Cathedral of Stockholm, the seat of the archbishop, while also getting a chance to see Stortorget, where the Stockholm Blood Bath took place.
