Is this trip right for you
  • The areas visited on this trip can be very cold at night throughout the year, especially at the start and end of the season. Please bring appropriate clothing for adverse weather conditions, including base layers, hat, gloves, scarf, coat and anything else that will keep you cosy.
  • Scandinavia can be an expensive destination in many ways, from museum entrance fees to optional activities, but especially in terms of eating out. Your leader will be able to advise on how to have the best value holiday in Scandinavia.
  • Space is at a premium in Europe and your hotel is no exception. Rooms are often small, but usually the central location makes up for that. For those travelling as a duo, hotels often don't have double beds, but rather two single beds that can be pushed together. Occasionally bathrooms will be shared with other guests.
  • On this trip we predominantly travel by public transport therefore we recommend packing light and smart for this trip as you'll be required to carry your own luggage between train stations, ferry ports and hotels, which can include going up and down multiple flights of stairs, and across cobblestones. Train stations often don’t have lifts available.
  • There isn’t much time in Oslo and Copenhagen on this trip - extra time is recommended for both cities. Please consult with your agent about booking additional accommodation in both cities (subject to availability).
  • This trip gives you a taster of southern Scandinavia which doesn't cover the Norwegian Fjords. If you would like to explore further you may want to consider looking at our longer trips - Copenhagen to Northern Norway, Scandinavia & Baltic Circuit, Complete Scandinavia.
