Scandinavian travel experts

As a travel agency based in the Nordic region, Nordic Visitor knows how to make the most of your time in Scandinavia. We offer a variety of tours — both independent and guided — that include the must-see attractions as well as lesser-known highlights that are hand-picked by our own Scandinavian travel experts. To ensure a stress-free trip, we handle all the local details for you — accommodations, activities, rental car (for self-drive tours), cruise/train tickets and other services.

Oh, and we can customise your itinerary! If you decide you want to add extra nights at a certain location, for example, your personal Nordic Visitor travel consultant will be happy to make suggestions and modify your itinerary.

Anosha, United States

Nordic Odyssey, July 2018

We will definitely use your services when we travel again

We were very happy with everything. We did four countries during our tour and we enjoyed it very much. We were also able to customize many options which was great. I have to say a huge "thank you" to Alda. She was very knowledgeable and very helpful. She also helped us customize our tour the way we wanted. We will definitely use your services when we travel again. 

Jasper, United States

Highlights of Scandinavia & Finland Cruise, May 2018

Allowed us to truly relax

We were just thrilled with how wonderful the trip was, and are very grateful to Alda for all of her hard work and flexibility with our changing needs and many requests. Having all of the trip details planned by you allowed us to truly relax and enjoy an unparalleled vacation.

Mary Jane, United States

Nordic Odyssey, August 2018

I have already recommended Nordic Visitor to others.

I have already recommended Nordic visitor to others. The price was very reasonable, and accommodations top notch. As we did the self guided tour the side tours available that we took were top rate. We enjoyed being able to spend time exploring on our own and not being bound by a full schedule. The transportation was wonderful. Our guide, Alda, was very helpful.

Duncan, Australia

Golden Route of the Nordic Countries, May 2018

Went very smoothly

I was very impressed with the efficiency of your staff and how processes that were meant to work actually went very smoothly. We have been traveling for many years and your organization is the least stress creating travel group we have experienced.

Giles, United Kingdom

Scandinavian Highlights by Car, September 2017

definitely recommend your company

I would definitely recommend your company. Very helpful on the phone when booking and arranging extra items such as GPS. Very good English spoken.

Gemma

Castles and Fjords in Scandinavia, March 2018

It was a pleasure from start to finish

It was a pleasure from start to finish with Nordic Visitor, taken in hand by Sophia from the very start who looked after us the whole way we couldn't have been more pleased. Plus the sights we got to see on our journey through Scandinavia for the first time we will never forget. Thank you very much

Inez, Canada

Scenic Circle of Scandinavia, August 2017

Well organized

I appreciate how well organized Nordic Visitor is and how easy it was to find my way around with the help of the maps that they provided. I liked the suggestions they made for sights to see in the various cities as well.  I would definitely check with Nordic Visitor if I planned to return to the same countries.

Dawn, United Kingdom

A Tale of Four Cities, July 2017

Amazing tour

This was an amazing tour for us to take as a family holiday (with teenagers) giving us a little insight into each country. Clearly planned to make the most of each city.  

Getting to Scandinavia

Many of Nordic Visitor’s tours of Scandinavia begin in Stockholm, Sweden’s capital and largest city. Stockholm Arlanda Airport is the main gateway for international air travel in Sweden and is served by dozens of airlines. Furthermore, it serves as a major hub for SAS (Scandinavian Airlines) and Norwegian Air.

Here are examples of other airlines that fly to Stockholm Arlanda: United Airlines, British Airways, Air France, EasyJet, Lufthansa, KLM, Icelandair, Emirates, Singapore Airlines, Qatar Airways

We recommend checking airline websites directly for flight availability and timetables. You can also use an airfare search engine, such as Skyscanner, Dohop or Kayak, for example.

Flights are not included in Nordic Visitor packages, but all of our itineraries can be customised with extra nights in Stockholm, or another arrival city in Scandinavia, if you’d like to rest up after your air journey.

Different ways you can experience Scandinavia

We have tours for all varieties of travel styles and interests. See our options for exploring Scandinavia below.

WHAT TO SEE ON A 6-DAY TOUR OF SCANDINAVIA?

The countries that traditionally constitute Scandinavia include Sweden, Denmark and Norway. It’s ideal to visit these countries in one holiday as they all share a similar cultural heritage and are well-connected via modern motorways, railways and waterways.

With 6 days in Scandinavia, it’s possible to travel to the capital cities of Scandinavia -- Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm -- on an express tour. With comfortable travel by train and ferry, you can enjoy some beautiful Scandinavian countryside scenery in addition to city sightseeing.



Recommended 6-day Scandinavia itinerary

Day 1 - Arrive to Stockholm, Sweden

Fly into Stockholm Arlanda Airport and head to your hotel in the city centre. Spend some time walking through Gamla Stan (The Old Town) and enjoy a Swedish coffee break, with a nice pastry of course, at one of the local cafes in this medieval neighbourhood. Or, for a relaxing overview of Stockholm's top attractions, take a city sightseeing tour by bus or boat.

Day 2 - Take the train to Copenhagen, Denmark

Head to Stockholm Central Station after breakfast and board the train for Copenhagen. Enjoy views of southern Sweden’s idyllic countryside, with colourful little timber cottages, on the way. Once in Denmark’s capital, take a walk down the city’s busy “Ströget” street for a bite to eat, or go check out the fun and games at the old fashioned Tivoli Gardens amusement park.

Day 3 - Overnight cruise to Oslo, Norway

Spend the day exploring the landmarks of Copenhagen. Take a canal tour to see the sights from the city’s waterways, or be like the bicycle-happy Danes and rent a bike to go see the attractions. Make sure to check out the beautiful Amalienborg Palace, as well as the colourful Nyhavn harbour and the Little Mermaid. Later, head to the port for your overnight cruise to Oslo.

Day 4 - Explore Norway’s capital city

After your ship arrives early in the morning, the whole day is yours to roam Oslo. Take a walk to the bustling Aker Brygge waterfront area and visit the Akershus Fortress. Or, head to the Bygdøy peninsula to see the well-preserved Viking ships at the popular Viking Ship Museum. If you love art, make sure to take a walk through the beautiful Vigeland Sculpture Park.

Day 5 - Back to Stockholm by train

In the morning after breakfast, take the train from Oslo Central Station to Stockholm. Back in Sweden’s charming capital, take some time to check out attractions you missed on day one. See the stately City Hall, where the Nobel banquets are held, or take a trip over to the Djurgården part of the city to visit the popular Vasa Museum or the Skansen open-air museum.

Day 6 - Depart from Stockholm

Fly back from from Stockholm Arlanda Airport and make your friends jealous with all your great vacation photos!



Want to add a Norway in a Nutshell tour to your Scandinavian trip to see the fjords? This journey between Oslo and Bergen in Norway is -- at minimum -- a full day trip, not to mention all the extra time you’ll want for exploring the gorgeous city of Bergen and the nearby natural attractions. So factor in a few extra days if you want to spend some time on Norway's west coast. It's also possible to customise a 6-day Scandinavia itinerary to focus just on Norway if the fjords are on your bucket list.

Are you planning to spend 6 days in Scandinavia in winter? For great northern lights viewing opportunities, see our winter travel packages in Northern Norway and in the Lapland region of Sweden and Finland.

Want to take a 6-day Scandinavia road trip?

On a summertime self-drive tour in Scandinavia, you’ll have the freedom to pull the car over at whatever attractions catch your interest. The best part? You won’t have to worry about where you’re going or sleeping, because your Nordic Visitor travel consultant has already sorted those local arrangements for you. You’ll also have access to our 24/7 emergency helpline if you find yourself in a spot of trouble on the road.

Mind you, a 6-day road trip in Scandinavia may not be enough time to experience more than two countries in one trip, but you would be able to enjoy the countryside between two of the major cities -- for example, a road trip from Stockholm, Sweden to Copenhagen, Denmark. If you want to slow down the pace and take in more than one Scandinavian country, we highly recommend extending your Scandinavia self-drive tour to 9 days or more.

What’s more, all of Nordic Visitor’s Scandinavia tour packages can be tailored by our local experts with extra nights at select locations or modified driving routes if you have any particular attractions in mind. Just contact us to ask.



Want to join a guided tour of Scandinavia?

To see Scandinavia from a local’s point of view… and make some new friends along the way, a guided small group tour of the Scandinavian cities in summer is a great option! To fully appreciate the top attractions of Denmark, Sweden and Norway, we recommend extending your travel time to at least 10 days. This extra time will allow you to travel at a comfortable pace and enjoy Scandinavia’s number one attraction -- the Norwegian fjords.
