Spectacular Scandinavia

With lush forests and fjords, crisp air, charming architecture and an undeniably fashionable edge, the Scandinavian cities have much in common. What each one offers individually by way of historical nuance is unique and unforgettable.
You’re invited to lose yourself to the delightful medley of history, culture, modernity, and breathtaking natural beauty of Scandinavia’s three capital cities. Cosy Oslo is nestled amongst the Nordic forests, lakes and green hills of our imaginations. Stockholm’s elegant 57 bridges linking the 14 sophisticated islands that make up the city contrast with Copenhagen’s charming cobblestone streets and brightly coloured foreshore that reveals its humble origins as a fishing port. Begin your exploration in Norway’s capital city, Oslo. Visit its various museums to learn all about its proud Viking past and Viking ancestors, and step on board the ‘strongest wooden boat ever built’. In Stockholm, visit all the treasured jewels of the city to understand its uniqueness. And in Copenhagen, experience the vibrant city through its idyllic canals and delve into its history through its various celebrated sites.
