1. FJORDS OF NORWAY: A 7-Day Moveable Feast of the Best of Norway's scenery & cities. Fly to Oslo, Norway. Start with 1-3 nights in NORWAY's capital  OSLO. Travel by Rail or Rental Car across Norway's rugged mountains to the beautiful SOGNE FJORD, an arm of the North Sea extending deep into Norway's mountains. Stay 1-3 nights in pristine fjord-side villages. Travel by rental car or fjord boat and/or train onward to Norway's beautiful & historic west coast city, BERGEN. Stay 1-3 nights in Bergen by its World Heritage Site Bryggen harbor. See more ITINERARY DETAILS & OPTIONS. Return flight from Bergen.
 
2. GREAT CITIES OF SWEDEN:  Sweden's trendy cities are built on their past as Viking ports and medieval centers of learning and trade. Build your own tour of Sweden's great cities. Start in Scandinavia's largest city & SWEDEN's capital: STOCKHOLM. Stay 1-7 nights. Get around by public transportation using the Stockholm City Card, which also permits free/reduced entry fees to many prime attractions throughout Greater Stockholm. Opt to add a visit of 1-4 nights to UPPSALA, a lovely, walkable, small Swedish city of major importance historically & culturally. Opt to add a visit of 1-4 nights to GOTHENBURG, central city of Scandinavia, and Sweden's major west coast city & port, known for its cuisine, canals, and culture.  Return flight from Stockholm or Gothenburg.
  
3. COPENHAGEN, WORLD'S HAPPIEST CITY: Discover why DENMARK (and COPENHAGEN in particular) head annual lists of the happiest places in the world. (Hint: top restaurants with innovative cuisine, a walkable, historic city-center, and an attractive, friendly populace all contribute to the overall sense of well-being: the Danish hygge.) Fly into Copenhagen. Stay 3-7 nights at the historic inn on the Nyhavn harbor canal, Copenhagen's most desired visitor destination and symbol (along with the Little Mermaid statue) of the city. Explore the city on foot, by bike (Copenhagen is one of the world's most bike-friendly cities), or by its state-of-the-art métro system. Take day-trips by train to places like ROSKILDE, Denmark's ancient royal capital and Viking center, or Kronborg Castle, the historic model for Shakespeare's Elsinore (Hamlet's castle). Opt to travel to a second Scandinavian city — OSLO, GOTHENBURG, or STOCKHOLM — for 3-4 nights. Fly home after 7 total nights from Copenhagen, Oslo, Gothenburg, or Stockholm

 

LODGINGS: All lodgings are centrally located, very Scandinavian in style, within walking distance to prime attractions and activities. All lodgings are close to clean, safe, frequent public transportation (rail, métro, bus, &/or boat). Lodgings used by guests with rental cars come with parking provided or close by. All lodgings come with a sumptuous smorgasbord breakfast daily.
 

GROUND TRANSPORT: City guests receive the appropriate transportation pass for the city of their choice. Passes cover buses, metros (subways), and some additional services including free/reduced entry to many attractions, but are not valid for airport transfers in Oslo, Gothenburg, or Stockholm (is valid for the métro between Copenhagen Airport and central Copenhagen).

 

EXCLUSIVE ACTIVITY GUIDE: Home At First's "Activities Guide" keyed for your exploration of the Scandinavian itinerary of your choice. Included are suggestions for touring, walking, restaurants, shopping, royal palaces and residences, historic sites, pubs, churches and cathedrals, museums, fjord trips and harbor boats — much that is fascinating, beautiful, and culturally/historically important about Scandinavia.

THIS SPECIALLY PRICED FULL PACKAGE INCLUDES:

FLY TRANSATLANTIC OVERNIGHT to LONDON, ENGLAND: Departure Fridays between August 23 to October 25, 2019, from New York City (JFK) or Newark (EWR), USA.

Begin your apartment occupancy Saturday afternoon. COTSWOLDS guests will collect their rental cars at the airport and drive (approximately 2 hours) northwest to the beautiful rural Cotswolds region of England. Special arrangements will be made for Cotswolds guests who do not wish to drive — please inquire.

LODGINGS: 7 nights lodging in a central London vacation apartment near the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge, or at a comfortable country cottage in a charming Cotswolds village or town.
