ITINERARY IDEAS FOR VISITING SCANDINAVIA IN MARCH

Thinking about Scandinavia tours in March? We can help with that!

March is a great time of year for a trip to Scandinavia if you want to travel during the low season. During the winter months, the Scandinavian countries – made up of Norway, Sweden and Denmark – welcome fewer visitors at top city attractions.

Our Scandinavia experts will ensure that you get the most out of your trip, customising your itinerary to your taste. You could see the capitals of Scandinavia on an independent tour, or head to the Arctic Circle to hunt for the northern lights.

What’s more, when you book a Scandinavia holiday with Nordic Visitor, you get tried-and-tested accommodation, transportation reservations, and many other benefits as part of the package. You’ll also enjoy the personal service of your own dedicated travel consultant.

Alan and Donna Midgley

Scenic Circle of Scandinavia, June 2019

Our experience with NV has been a joy!

Our experience with NV has been a joy. Alda has been terrific and very accommodating to our needs and we could not have asked for more from you or her. 

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.

Helen Pagliaro

Golden Route of the Nordic Countries, May 2019

Superb customer service!

Mikael provided superb customer service. Very pleased with his attention to detail. He was very courteous and quite helpful.

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. 

MaryLou Perea

Classic Scandinavia, June 2019

The location of the hotels could not have been better!

The location of the hotels could not have been better - all centrally located with access to points of interest and public transport. Transportation between cities was also well-planned.

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.

Joseph Cooney

The Classic Scandinavian Roundtrip, May 2019

Greatly appreciated

The fact that the travel documents clearly laid out the necessary transfers for trains, boats, planes, etc. was greatly appreciated. When the transfers involved a tricky change, the documents made sure to describe the signs as well as possible to assist. It was also nice to have all of the documents given to us in a single email so access was simple and easy.

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.

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.

BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN SCANDINAVIA IN MARCH?

There are some amazing places to visit in Scandinavia in March. You could go out to explore the wintry countryside of the north, looking for the aurora borealis, or experience the culture and attractions of the southern cities.

The winter Scandinavia weather in March means dark nights and cold temperatures, bringing snow to certain parts of the region. Although it is low season, the landscape is still enchanting and there are less visitors at top sights.

Make the most of this quiet period by exploring the capital cities of the Scandinavian Triangle, enjoying the best of Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen in one incredible trip. In March, these cities are quieter than during the summer months, so you’ll have more of them to yourselves.

If you opt for Scandinavia travel in March, you can soak up the region’s rural scenery. You could head to Bergen in Norway to witness the stunning fjords. Or go further into Northern Norway in March for a glimpse at the stunning west coast and a chance to catch the northern lights.



Here’s one of our suggestions for a Scandinavia itinerary in March:

Day 1 - Arrive in 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 fika (a Swedish coffee break) with a nice pastry at one of the local cafés in this medieval neighbourhood.

Or, why not hop on a city sightseeing tour?

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 experience the best of Stockholm in a day, taking you to must-see spots like the City Hall, Royal Palace and trendy Södermalm quarter.

We also recommend taking a short ferry ride to the nearby island Djurgården, a cultural oasis near the city centre. Here you’ll find one of Scandinavia’s most popular attractions, the Vasa Museum. You could also visit the Abba Museum and the Skansen open-air museum

Day 3 - Travel to Copenhagen, Denmark
Today you’ll board a train or a short flight to Copenhagen, the beautiful capital of Denmark. As a taster, you should walk along the colourful Nyhavn harbour. We also recommend strolling along the busy shopping street, Strøget.

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 your journey to Oslo, Norway’s capital city, spend the day enjoying more of Copenhagen. Why not make like the bicycle-happy Danes and rent a bike? You could also take in the view of the city from the top of the Round Tower.

Later, board an overnight ferry to Oslo. You’ll cruise gently up the Kattegat Sund all the way to Norway.

Day 6 - Explore Norway’s capital city
This morning your ship arrives in Oslo, giving you the day to explore the Norwegian capital. 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, you’ll board a train from Oslo Central Station to begin the legendary Norway in a Nutshell® tour – one of the most scenic rail journeys in the world. This train ride takes you over Norway’s “mountainous rooftop”, through charming villages like Gol and Geilo.

From Myrdal, you’ll embark on the famous Flåm Railway (Flåmsbana) for a scenic ride to the beautiful village of Flåm. Enjoy the rest of your day in Flåm.

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 a Scandinavia tour in March?

Travelling to Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden and Denmark) gives you a good excuse to see more of Northern Europe in the same trip.

The Nordic countries – that’s Finland and Iceland as well as Norway, Denmark and Sweden – are well connected via plane, train and ferry. That’s why seeing a few of them in one go is a great idea!

You could begin your 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 vessel that whisks you to Stockholm, crossing the Baltic Sea overnight to begin your exploration of the Scandinavian Triangle the following day.

Or, after spending time in Bergen, you could head into Northern Norway, admiring the fjords and national parks along the way. The snow-covered landscape up here is perfect to try dog sledding and snowmobiling.

Or why not head even further north in Norway to explore the remote Svalbard, home of polar bears?

The Scandinavian countryside is also ideal if you want to visit ski resorts and enjoy other winter sports. The available winter activities include cross country skiing, snowboarding, and even ice fishing.

In Finnish and Swedish Lapland, there are some truly special winter experiences in store for you. Meet Santa Claus, stay at a snow or ice hotel, and experience the winter polar nights.

Another option is to follow up your Scandinavia tour in March with a visit to Iceland. Fly from Oslo to Reykjavík and spend some days discovering the country’s awe-inspiring natural scenery, including glaciers, volcanoes and waterfalls.

These are some of the best places to visit in Scandinavia in March!

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.



Interested in a self-guided tour of Scandinavia?

If you would like to discover Scandinavia on your own, then an independent tour is the perfect choice. Travel from one place to the next using public transportation, which in Scandinavia is fast, reliable and punctual.

By opting for a train and cruise 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 travel 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 the usual Nordic Visitor benefits. These include access to our 24/7 helpline, a detailed personal itinerary, helpful travel guide and daily breakfast.

How about a Scandinavia road trip?

On a self-drive tour in Scandinavia, you’ll have the freedom to pull the car over at any attractions that 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 should you need to call us at any point.

If you want to take a road trip through Scandinavia, we recommend visiting between May and September. Enjoy incredible scenery right outside your window, watching how the landscapes shift between Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

You could opt for a circular road trip between Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo, flying in and out of the Swedish capital, for example.



Prefer a guided tour of Scandinavia?

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 take place between May and August, so book your trip for the summer season to join a group.

A small group tour of Scandinavia offers an enriching experience, allowing you to get the most out of your trip thanks to the expertise of a local tour guide. What’s more, you’ll be travelling alongside 16 people at most, so the trip is still personal for you.
