    Each country enjoys a common theme of offering some of the most beautiful, unspoilt scenery you will find in Europe - Denmark, with its pleasing pastoral landscape and captivating capital; Copenhagen, famous for its Little Mermaid and lively Nyhavn. There’s also Norway, the heartland of the Vikings and home of the trolls and famous fjords, where stunning scenery backdrops await you around every twist and turn; and Sweden, with myriad inlaid lakes and its famous historic capital, Stockholm.

    We’ll begin in Antwerp, before travelling onwards to Hamburg, where there will be an optional guided city tour we can take. From there, we’ll make our way to Hirtshals, and then onwards to Vradal by ferry. We’ll spend two nights in Vradal, and will take a scenic coach ride through the Telemark region to admire the scenery.

    Our next destination will be Ulvik, where we’ll stay for three nights and will take an optional guided city tour of Bergen, as well as an included scenic tour taking in some of the highlights of Norway. We’ll then travel to capital Oslo, where we’ll take an included guided city tour and an excursion to the Viking Ship Museum. Then we will take the overnight ferry to Copenhagen to enjoy an included guided city tour. After this, we’ll travel to Geldrop and will then return to the UK.
