This spectacular 15-day Nordic Explorer tour to the Nordic countries is a perfect opportunity to see what kind of treasures lie along the Baltic Sea. And there could be no better way to start than a walking tour through the vibrant streets of Helsinki, Finland.

Be sure to take a stroll along the harbour and browse the abundant souvenir shops. Then it's off to Sweden, which boasts a colourful history with Renaissance buildings that dot the three main islands making up the oldest part of Stockholm: Riddarholmen, Staden and Helgeandsholmen.

A boat tour gives us a chance to see some of the other 14 islands that make up this wondrous city, like Djurgarden, which consists of a lustrous park that was once designated as the royal hunting grounds.

We visit world-renowned sites such as the Blue Hall and the Golden Chamber where the annual Nobel Prize banquets take place.

Once we arrive in Copenhagen, Denmark, we embark on a boat trip down the city's canal. Tour the massive granite halls of Christianborg Castle, see the Danish Crown Jewels at the Rosenborg Castle, and relax amid the enchanting Tivoli Gardens, where 100,000 coloured lanterns light the Chinese pagoda.

The breathtaking view of the Olso fjord and harbour from the Holmenkollen Ski Jump is something worthy of using a whole roll of fill.

This has been a landmark since it was built in 1892 and it gained wider appreciation during the 1952 Olympics.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How many days are enough for Europe?

    You can spend a couple of months exploring Europe and still feel like you have not seen everything. Generally speaking, a two-week Europe trip should be just enough if you are looking to cover its major highlights. However, if you want a comprehensive travel experience within this duration, it is better that you focus on a region or a few countries rather than traveling all over the continent. 

    Choose a single country or schedule your trip around a handful of cities in different countries. While larger European cities may require three to four days to explore, you can get around smaller destinations in a day or two. Planning your trip around a particular region will cut down your travel time and save your time in transit.

  • Is Norway expensive to travel to?

    Norway is not a cheap country to visit. However, with the right hacks, you can still visit Norway on a budget.

    Norway is part of the Schengen Zone. Thus, most travelers from Europe can enter the country for up to 90 days without a visa. However, some nationalities need a Schengen visa. For more specific information, please check your country's travel advisories before planning a trip.
