Embark on a daytrip which will take to North Zealand, where you will visit majestic castles and palaces such as the Frederiksborg and Kronborg castles.

FAQs

Our group tours allow travelers to explore Scandinavian destinations in the company of a very experienced Tour Director and a small group of fellow travelers. Group sizes are limited to 12 travelers and a limited number of departure dates are offered for each tour throughout the year. The Tour Director accompanies the group from beginning to end of the tour and often a private driver and vehicle (luxury mini coach) are also employed for maximum comfort. Additionally, we count on the expertise of several local guides at each of the destinations visited, further enhancing the experience. Our group tours typically include most dinners, in order to better showcase local cuisines, and allow for the exploration of more remote destinations.
This option is ideal for travelers who enjoy traveling in the most worry-free manner possible while discovering destinations in the company of others, making new friends along the way.

Our private tours allow travelers to explore Scandinavian destinations with programs offering a great balance between pre-arranged activities and free time to explore. When implementing one of our private programs for you, we handle all the logistics involved, including: hotels, airport transfers, transportation from city to city and all guided activities and excursions. You will not be with a Tour Director throughout the program, but you will enjoy a number of sightseeing experiences led by experienced local guides. We can work with your desired dates, provided that availability exists at the many services involved in your program.
This option is ideal for travelers who enjoy traveling independently and with a higher degree of flexibility to explore each location on their own.

Technically, Scandinavia refers primarily to Norway, Denmark and Sweden. When thinking of Nordic Countries, add to the list Finland and Iceland as well.
