Day One

Arrive in Copenhagen

Tour begins: 5:30 PM, Sheraton Stockholm Hotel. A transfer is included from Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport to the Sheraton Stockholm Hotel in the heart of Sweden’s historic capital city. Meet all of your traveling companions at this evening’s Tauck Exclusive welcome reception and dinner at Stockholm’s Vasa Museum, featuring the impressive Vasa, an ornate royal warship that sank in Stockholm’s harbor following its launch in 1628 and was raised in 1961.
Meals Included: Dinner
Accommodation: Sheraton Stockholm Hotel

 

Day Two

Discover Stockholm & the Vasa Museum

Begin today’s discovery of Sweden’s capital with sightseeing including a guided visit to Stockholm’s iconic City Hall, where the annual Nobel Prize award festivities take place. You’ll see the Council Chamber; the Gold Room, whose walls are sparkling with 18 million pieces of gold mosaic and glass depicting events in Swedish and world history; and the famous Blue Room, misnamed because the architect changed his mind and left its beautiful red-brick walls intact. Stockholm sightseeing continues with a panoramic lakeside drive over bridges that crisscross between Stockholm’s small islands, offering views of Gamla Stan (Old Town) and a skyline of 17th- and 18th-century buildings, the Baltic Sea, Lake Malaren, the elegant Strandvagen waterfront, the inner harbor, the Royal Palace, the Cathedral and Parliament. The rest of the day is free to explore as you wish – perhaps take a canal tour, or walk through the cobbled streets of medieval Gamla Stan.
Meals Included: Breakfast
Accommodation: Sheraton Stockholm Hotel

 

Day Three

Fly from Stockholm to Copenhagen

Take a morning flight from Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport to Copenhagen, Denmark. After lunch at a local Copenhagen restaurant, embark on a city tour that includes a visit to Rosenborg Palace, built in Dutch Renaissance style, where you’ll see the Danish Crown Jewels. Tall towers and red brick masonry define this “petite” 16th-century castle, in use by Danish regents as a royal “summer house” until about 1710. If you wish this evening, we’ve included admission to celebrated Tivoli Gardens, which you can visit at your leisure this evening with tickets provided by your Tauck Director. This city-center, 160+-year-old amusement park is set within a 20-acre garden; from thousands of blooms to a lakeside beer garden, fireworks, a roller coaster and evening music, it’s a Danish experience unto its own.
Meals Included: Breakfast & Lunch
Accommodation: Radisson Collection Royal Hotel, Copenhagen

 

Day Four

North Zealand, Frederiksborg Palace & more

Head out from the city this morning to North Zealand, a region of woodlands, villages, lakes, royal parks and castles.

After a Danish family-style lunch in a local restaurant in North Zealand, return to “wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen.” The afternoon and evening are free to explore as you wish, perhaps discovering the historic Nyhavn area and strolling along the Stroget, Copenhagen’s main street; dinner is at a local restaurant tonight.
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation: Radisson Collection Royal Hotel, Copenhagen

Day Six

Explore Bergen & visit a stave church

Your tour includes a visit to Fantoft Stave Church, a 1990s reconstruction of an original 12th-century stave church that was destroyed by fire in 1992. Many centuries ago, the construction of traditional, iconic Norwegian wooden stave churches began with the slotting of posts (staves) into the ground to support thousands of skillfully crafted timber parts, which included carved portals and dragons’ head carvings on the roof. Following an afternoon at leisure, ride a ferry to dinner at a local restaurant, before returning to your hotel close to Bryggen, the city’s old wharf district. Featuring traditional wooden buildings and a medieval atmosphere, Bryggen was founded in 1070 during the days of the Hanseatic League; one of the oldest large trading ports in Northern Europe, it is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

All about glaciers at Briksdal
