14 Day Tour from Copenhagen to Oslo 
Stunning scenery, cultural treasures, exciting cities, and memorable experiences await you on this Scandinavia tour through Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. Your tour begins in Copenhagen and ends in Oslo with overnights in Arhus, Gothenburg, Stockholm, Karlstad, Lillehammer, Flåm, and Bergen.

Guided sightseeing in the cities includes Copenhagen's Little Mermaid statue and Tivoli Gardens, the world's second-oldest amusement park; Stockholm's City Hall, where the annual Nobel Prize banquet is held; Lillehammer's Maihaugen Open-Air Museum, where you'll learn about life in Norway over the past 500 years through a re-created rural town; an orientation drive of Bergen with a walking tour of Bryggen; and Oslo's Frogner Park, with Gustav Vigeland's 200+ bronze and granite sculptures. Also, visit Hans Christian Andersen's museum in Odense, the well-preserved wooden Borgund stave church, and more.

No Scandinavia tour would be complete without seeing some of Scandinavia's spectacular scenery. Drive through Sweden's scenic Värmland, home to 10,000 lakes dotting the forested landscape; cruise on spectacular Sognefjord, Norway's longest fjord, and Nærøyfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; enjoy a ferry crossing from Denmark to Sweden; a scenic train ride across the wild Hardangervidda mountain plateau from Bergen to Oslo; and much more.

Globus has also arranged some unique experiences for you. Visit a Norwegian farm for lunch and meet the family that has owned it for eight generations. While you taste their apple juice and cider, hear about their history and how cider is made. Other highlights are a guided visit to King Gustav Vasa’s Gripsholm Castle and dinner at a restaurant in Arhus to try out local specialties.
