The Social Benefits of Exploring Scandinavia in a Group

Joining a group tour to explore Scandinavia – such as the Escorted Journeys in our range of luxury Scandinavia tours is an excellent way to socialize and make new friends.

A group tour allows you to meet and connect with locals and other travelers with the same interests and values. You can share experiences, gain insight into the local cultures, and form meaningful relationships.

One of the leading social benefits of a group tour is the sense of security it provides. Finding your way alone in a foreign place can be challenging. 

On a group tour, you have the support of experienced tour guides who can take care of you throughout the journey. 

Additionally, the shared experience of exploring a new place with friends creates a strong bond among the group members, fostering a greater camaraderie and connection. 

Group tours also provide an ideal opportunity for learning about different cultures, customs, and cuisines.

How to Choose the Right Group Tour for Your Trip to Scandinavia

  1. Research different packages tour operators offer to find the one that best fits your needs and interests.
  2. Consider the size of the group tour you want to join. Smaller groups will provide a more intimate experience and more time to explore. Many tour operators work with a minimum of 18 people per group, making ours truly small group experiences.
  3. Check the activities and attractions included in the tour and decide if they suit you. 
  4. Read customer reviews to get an idea of the service and satisfaction the tour operator provides. 
  5. Ask the tour operator about their safety and security measures to ensure a safe and comfortable trip.
