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.

What do our customers say?

The reviews speak for themselves. See what Nordic Visitor travellers said about their experience with us.

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 ONE-WEEK TOUR OF SCANDINAVIA?

Scandinavia is a region of Europe that covers the kingdoms of Denmark, Sweden and Norway. The ideal holiday is to visit all three together as they all share similar cultural heritage and history. They are also well-connected via flights, modern motorways, railways and waterways.

With one week in Scandinavia, it’s possible to travel to all three capitals – Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm. With comfortable travel by flight and ferry, you can admire Scandinavia’s scenic coast and rural areas, as well as its attractive cities.



Here’s our suggestion for a one-week Scandinavia itinerary:

Day 1 - Arrive to Stockholm, Sweden
Fly into Stockholm Arlanda Airport and head to your hotel in the city centre. If you arrive earlier in the day, you can spend some time on the well-known street shopping Drottninggatan and enjoy a fika (a Swedish coffee break). You could also hop on a sightseeing tour to discover more.

Day 2 – Explore the Swedish capital
Take full advantage of your day in Stockholm. Discover the old town, Gamla Stan, where you could visit the 19th-century Royal Palace.

We also recommend heading to Djurgården, a nearby island part of the Stockholm archipelago. Here you’ll find some of the city’s cultural highlights like the Skansen open-air museum, Gröna Lund amusement park and Vasa museum.

Day 3 – Travel to Denmark
Only a short flight or scenic train ride away, today you travel to Denmark. Upon your arrival, take in the beautiful capital, Copenhagen. First stop, the enchanting Nyhavn, a colourful harbour with restaurants and docked boats.

You could spend your evening at the amusement park of Tivoli Gardens. We recommend trying a traditional open-faced sandwich, Smørrebrød.

Day 4 – Explore the colourful Copenhagen
Spend the day discovering more of Copenhagen. The city centre is compact, which means you can easily get around on foot. Top landmarks include the Amalienborg Palace, Christiansborg Palace and the Little Mermaid statue. You could also see the cityscape from the water with a cruise.

Day 5 – Sail to Norway
You have the morning to visit a few more of Copenhagen’s hot spots. Walk up the centrally located Round Tower for a great view over the city or visit the regal Rosenborg Castle. Later, board an overnight cruise to head to Oslo. You’ll sail gently up the Kattegat Sund to Norway.

Day 6 – Explore Norway’s capital city
Once the ship docks, you have all day to roam around Oslo. Walk past the imposing city hall to spend some time at the bustling Aker Brygge waterfront or head to the Bygdøy peninsula. Here you could see the well-preserved Viking ships at the popular Viking Ship Museum.

You could also visit one of the many cultural attractions of the city, from the Royal Palace to discovering Gustav Vigeland’s sculptures at Frogner Park.

Day 7 – Departure from Oslo
Today you fly home from your Scandinavian holiday. If you have time, you could visit another of Oslo’s museums or take a stroll to snap a few final photos to make all your friends at home jealous.



What other ideas are there for a one-week Scandinavia itinerary?

There are various other ways you can explore Scandinavia with an itinerary of 1 week. You could focus on one of the countries instead of all three. You also could head up north to visit Lapland or northern Norway.

If you want to slow down the pace and take in more Scandinavian sights, why not extend your tour and stay longer? For example, you could add some day trips or extra days in each capital city.

You could also visit Bergen on the west coast of Norway or take on the iconic Norway in a Nutshell® route. If you want to expand your trip into the Nordic region, you could start your tour with 1 or 2 days in the capital of Finland, Helsinki.

Good to know: Most of our itineraries aren't set in stone, and there are many possibilities for customised routes! We can modify your tour if you'd prefer to arrive in a different city, spend more free time in one destination than another, or add other towns to your trip.

Just ask your Nordic Visitor travel consultant for advice.



Want to do a self-guided tour of Scandinavia??

If you would like to discover Scandinavia on your own but prefer not to drive, then an independent tour is the perfect choice.

By opting for an independent 1 week tour of scandinavia, you’ll benefit from having your itinerary arrangements made for you but with the freedom to spend your days however you please. Nordic Visitor will book all your accommodation and ferry and train tickets between destinations, and you can add on activities too.

Plus, by booking an independent tour of Scandinavia you’ll still be able to enjoy all the Nordic Visitor benefits. These include access to our 24/7 helpline, a detailed personal itinerary, helpful travel guide and daily breakfast.

Want to take a Scandinavia road trip?

On a one-week long Scandinavia driving tour, you’ll have the freedom to pull the car over at any attractions or breathtaking views.

The best part? You won’t have to worry about where you’re going or sleeping, because your Nordic Visitor travel consultant will sort it out for you before you arrive. You’ll also have access to our 24/7 emergency helpline should you need to call us at any point.



Prefer to join a guided tour of Scandinavia?

Our guided small group tours in Scandinavia allow you to get the most out of your trip thanks to the expertise of a local guide. What’s more, you’ll be travelling alongside 16 people at most, so the experience is still personal for you.
