ID #: DT-FSND-13-8-21-10-RAIJ
DavidTravel Itinerary Highlights include:
Discover the incomparable mix of
stunning vistas and rich historic sites in Scandinavia. In
Copenhagen, explore the castles, the palaces, Town Hall topped
by the gigantic World Clock, and charming Tivoli Gardens. Take a
minute to catch your breath as you marvel at Bergen’s
overwhelming fjords – long narrow inlets of sea bordered by
steep cliffs, shimmering glaciers and glorious waterfalls.
You’ll experience breathtaking sites of natural beauty while you
learn about the people and their customs, as well as the
captivating cultural and historical features of Scandinavia. In
Stockholm, you’ll explore art and architecture in the old town
where you’ll be charmed by the cozy little houses and
storefronts. Oslo offers many outstanding sites of cultural
significance but maybe none as impressive as the 9th-century
Viking ships that give you the opportunity to touch a piece of
history that has taken on legendary proportions.
Helsinki and its layers of Neo-Classical Art Nouveau
and Nordic minimalism architecture
Finland is the big surprise of the Nordic countries, a
natural wonderland with more trees than people and more islands
than any other nation in the world. With endless miles of
wilderness and 188,000 lakes on their doorstep, the Finns are
uniquely in tune with their surroundings. Even committed
urbanites retreat to wooden cottages in the country during the
brief, warm summers to swim and fish in the lakes and gather
wild berries and mushrooms in the woods, before unwinding with a
sauna and a glass of kossu (Finnish vodka).
Sweden Sweden is a land of incredible
cultural contrast. While urban Sweden is stylish, modern and
sophisticated, the countryside offers many simpler pleasures for
those in search of tranquillity.
Norway Norway is a land for nature
lovers, with breathtaking fjords and glaciers, summer's midnight
sun and a sparsely populated wilderness.
There are opportunities to indulge in skiing, fishing and
rock-climbing, while the less energetic can simply marvel at the
beauty of the Norwegian countryside, with its countless
steep-sided valleys, high mountain lakes and unforgettable
Denmark Denmark is a secret utopia of
tidy cities, picturesque countryside, efficient infrastructure
and commendable public services, and is a country whose only
fault is lack of winter sunshine.
In terms of entertainment, museums, festivals, architecture and
shopping will easily distract the most enthusiastic of visitors
and for those looking to take it easy, the outdoors offer
endless opportunities for country walks and seaside breaks.
