Day to day


Day 1 - Copenhagen

Your tour starts in Copenhagen, the gateway to Scandinavia. During the 14th and early 15th Century, Copenhagen was even the capital of all of Denmark, Sweden and Norway, and flourished as a result. Originally a Viking fishing village, Copenhagen has grown into a metropolis that combines the modern with the folklore that stands at the root of Danish culture.

Overnight stay in a hotel close to the train station and a short walk from the harbour.

It is possible to add train tickets to Copenhagen to your booking. Additional fees will apply.

Day 2 - Stockholm

Total travel time: 5:15 hours
Take a morning train across the famous Øresund bridge to Stockholm. You will be travelling on the X2000 tilting train, which travels at speeds of up to 200 k/h. Arrival in Stockholm in the early afternoon.

To explore Stockholm, we recommend using its metro system, also known as the longest art gallery in the world because of the décor of its stations. Pop lovers might like to check out the ABBA museum, an interactive exhibit for the famous Swedish pop-group.

Tonight you will be staying in a floating hotel, located on the water close to the central station.

Norway’s capital is situated at the end of the Oslofjord. The hotel you will be staying in is next to the train station and the famous Opera House, and a short walk from the shores of the fjord. If you have time, why not take a ferry to one of the islands that can be found opposite the city.
