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 AND WHAT TO DO ON A TOUR OF NORWAY AND SWEDEN?

The best way to enjoy a trip to Sweden and Norway is to visit the three countries of Scandinavia in one tour, including Denmark. Why? Because these countries share a similar cultural heritage and are well-connected via modern motorways, railways and waterways.

As such, we highly recommend the Scandinavian Triangle, a route that incorporates the capitals of Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

Travel between Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen via train, plane and ferry. Or you might prefer to do a road trip around the region. Spend your free time enjoying walking tours to learn a great deal about local history, savouring delicious Scandinavian meals, or cycling along the pedestrianised streets and bike lanes.

Opt for one of our Scandinavia tours and you’ll discover a land brimming with gorgeous scenery. Come in the summer to enjoy long daylight hours, wild swimming and al fresco dining. In the winter, expect a festive wonderland and smaller crowds at top attractions. You may even get a chance to spot the northern lights!

As a Northern European specialist, Nordic Visitor organises vacations to this beautiful corner of the world. We have many more ideas and travel tips to help you explore Scandinavia your way!



Here’s one of our suggestions for a tour of Sweden and Norway, including Denmark:

Day 1 - Fly to Stockholm, Sweden
Upon arriving in Stockholm Arlanda Airport, head to your hotel in the city centre. Spend some time walking through Gamla Stan (the Old Town). Enjoy a fika (a Swedish coffee break) with a nice pastry at one of the local cafés in this medieval neighbourhood.

Day 2 - The highlights of Stockholm
Spend a full day in the Swedish capital, discovering the city’s attractions and districts. You could join a sightseeing tour to see the best of Stockholm in a day, taking you to must-see spots like the City Hall, Royal Palace and trendy Södermalm quarter.

Or, a ferry ride will whisk you off to the island of Djurgården, home to the Nordic Museum and Skansen, the world’s oldest open-air museum. Meanwhile, a day trip to the Stockholm Archipelago means you could swim in the Baltic Sea and hike through forests.

Day 3 - Fly to Copenhagen, Denmark
Head to Stockholm Airport after breakfast and board a plane to Copenhagen. Once in Denmark’s capital, take a walk down the city’s popular Strøget street for a bite to eat, or go check out the fun and games at the world-famous Tivoli Gardens amusement park.

Day 4 - Discover Copenhagen
Soak up the charms of Copenhagen today, either on your own or as part of a guided tour. You might want to visit Rosenborg Castle, the Botanical Garden and Torvehallerne food market.

We also recommend hopping on a boat tour to see Christiansborg Palace, the Royal Danish Opera House and the colourful Christianshavn Canal from the water.

Day 5 - Overnight cruise to Oslo, Norway
Ahead of tonight's journey to Oslo, spend the day enjoying more of Copenhagen. Why not make like the bicycle-happy Danes and rent a bike?

You could check out the exquisite Amalienborg Palace, as well as the colourful Nyhavn harbour. If you’re a fan of Hans Christian Andersen, don’t miss the Little Mermaid statue, depicting the famous mythical character. Later, head to the port for your overnight cruise to Oslo.

Day 6 - 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 vessels at the popular Viking Ship Museum.

If you love art, make sure to take a walk through the delightful Vigeland Sculpture Park. Don’t miss a visit to Oslo City Hall if you want to see where the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony is held.

Day 7 - Scenic train journey to Flåm
This morning, go to Oslo Central Station to begin your Norway in a Nutshell® experience – one of the most scenic rail journeys in the world. Look out the window to see picturesque landscapes and quaint villages like Gol and Geilo.

Change at Myrdal to board the Flåm Railway for one of the top highlights of the entire trip: a 900-metre (half-mile) descent to the picturesque village of Flåm, where you’ll stay for the night.

Day 8 - Norwegian fjord cruise
Prepare to witness breathtaking Norwegian scenery today, as you hop on a cruise that takes you through the fjords. You’ll be able to admire the glittering waters, cascading falls and forested mountains of Sognefjord, passing through Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord.

Afterwards, it’s an exciting coach and train ride to Bergen via Stalheimskleiva – the steepest road in Europe, with 13 hairpin bends.

Day 9 - Discover Bergen
Known as the gateway to the fjords, Bergen is Norway’s charming second city with plenty of its own attractions to uncover. You can visit the medieval houses of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Bryggen, and take the funicular up Mount Fløyen for panoramic views over the city and fjords.

There are also plenty of museums, shops and restaurants to check out on your last full day in Scandinavia

Day 10 - Depart from Bergen, Norway
Fly back home from Bergen-Flesland Airport, having enjoyed 10 days in beautiful Scandinavia.



What other ideas are there for tours to Sweden and Norway?

There are so many more places to see in this part of Northern Europe. For example, you could delve deeper into the Nordic region, which is made up of Finland, Iceland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

One popular option is to begin your Nordic tour in the capital of Finland, Helsinki. Here in this exciting city, spend your time uncovering attractions like Senate Square, Uspenski Cathedral, and the Old Market Hall. Don’t miss the chance to visit local restaurants for a taste of Finnish cuisine.

Then step aboard a cruise that whisks you to Stockholm. You’ll cross the Baltic Sea overnight to begin your exploration of the Scandinavian Triangle the following day. Some Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland tours also incorporate Tallinn, the capital of Estonia which is just a short ferry ride from Helsinki.

Another alternative is to explore more of rural Scandinavia. Discover natural gems like the breathtaking Norwegian fjords and mountains. You could travel even further up the west coast towards the Lofoten Islands on the Hurtigruten cruise, for an exciting journey towards the Arctic Circle.

Like the sound of an odyssey to the far north of Europe? Then we recommend visiting Lapland – a remote region covering parts of Sweden, Finland and Norway. Come in winter for the chance to see the aurora borealis, soak up snowy landscapes, and meet Santa Claus.

Or hop on a plane and visit Iceland as part of your Nordic experience!

Good to know: Most of our itineraries aren't set in stone, and there are many possibilities to tailor your plans. 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 agent for advice.

Interested in escorted tours of Norway and Sweden?

To see the region from a local’s point of view and make some new friends along the way, a guided small group tour of the Scandinavian capitals is an excellent option! These tours run from May to August, so you can enjoy summer travel in Scandinavia.

Guided tours offer an enriching experience, allowing you to get the most out of your trip thanks to the expertise of a tour director. You will also encounter private tour guides and bus drivers along the way that are extremely knowledgeable and will share their local stories with you.

What’s more, you’ll only be travelling alongside 16 people at most. Unlike most big coach tours of Sweden and Norway, this means the trip is still personal for you.



Prefer a self-guided tour of Norway and Sweden?

If you would like to discover Norway and Sweden on your own but prefer not to drive, then an independent tour is the perfect choice. Public transportation in Scandinavia is fast, reliable and punctual, so getting around by train and ferry is a great alternative to driving.

By opting for a train and cruise tour of the region, 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 travel tickets between destinations, and you can add on activities too.

This is perfect for those who want to enjoy active tours of Norway and Sweden. You could include hikes and other adventures to your days.

Plus, by booking one of our independent tours, you’ll still be able to benefit from the usual Nordic Visitor perks. These include access to our 24/7 helpline, a detailed personal itinerary, helpful travel guide and daily breakfast.



How about a driving tour of Norway and Sweden?

You could explore Sweden and Norway on a self-drive tour, giving you the freedom to stop at lookout points and attractions whenever you want. Get ready for a real adventure, with incredible scenery outside your window to make the journey as unforgettable as the destinations you visit.

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 should you need to call us at any point.

You could opt for a circular route between Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo, flying in and out of the Swedish capital, for example. This way, you would soak up the verdant countryside, rural villages, and grand castles and manor houses in this corner of Scandinavia.

All of Nordic Visitor’s Sweden and Norway self-drive tours 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 or more travel info, just contact us to ask.
