Globus Northern Capitals(ZT)

10 days from Copenhagen to Helsinki 
From the vibrant cities to the gorgeous scenery, this Northern Europe tour visits the Nordic's fascinating capitals with overnights in Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm, and Helsinki. In each city, you’ll experience guided sightseeing of the must-see sights, including Copenhagen's Little Mermaid statue and the Royal Reception Rooms at Christiansborg Palace, used by the Queen for official occasions; Oslo's City Hall, decorated with great Norwegian art from 1900 to 1950, and Frogner Park, where Gustav Vigeland created over 200 extraordinary bronze and granite statues; Stockholm's City Hall, where the Nobel Prize banquet is held each year, Helsinki’s Lutheran Cathedral, completed in 1852, and the famous open-air market.

A tour highlight is an overnight Baltic Sea cruise from Stockholm to Helsinki. You'll stay in first-class, outside, 2-berth cabins with private facilities, and you'll enjoy a special Smörgåsbord dinner on board. This is just one of the out-of-the-ordinary experiences Globus includes to make your vacation unique. Another special treat is a Swedish food experience, where you can sample local specialties at some of the stalls in Gothenburg's indoor food market.

On this Northern Europe tour, you’ll also experience some of Northern Europe’s beautiful scenery. From Gothenburg to Norway, travel along the coastline with its many islands, granite rocks, and charming little fishing villages. Oslo is situated by a fjord and is surrounded by hills and forests. Take a ferry from Elsinore, Denmark to Helsingborg, Sweden, with great views of Hamlet's Kronborg Castle. Drive through Sweden's scenic Värmland, home to 10,000 lakes dotting the forested landscape and home to Sweden's largest lake, Vänern.
