The Best Of Sweden & Norway

  • Stockholm, Gota Canals, Gothenburg, Oslo, Bergen11 days
About

See two of Scandinavia’s glittering archipelago capitals with their cobble-stoned streets, palaces and canals. Start in Sweden in cosmopolitan Stockholm, travel through charming inland Swedish landscapes along the Gota Canal, and on to the western archipelago of Gothenburg. Experience the Viking capital Oslo, then Bergen the fjord capital, and on through the spectacular mountains and magnificent fjords of Norway.

You should experience it because...

You will be amazed by the contrasts, from magnificent island cities and ancient Viking capitals, to the wild nature of the Norwegian fjords and the peaceful tranquillity of the Gota Canal. And the most beautiful train journey in the world on the Flam railway.

A taste of Scandi cities

Boating in Stockholm’s archipelago is a great way to see the city, rent a sailboat or a wooden boat and go exploring.

With a Gothenburg city card you can go by bus, tram and boat for free. The beautiful Gota Place is centred on a breathtaking fountain of Poseidon.

Bike around Oslo, from the harbour to the Aker Brygge

  • 1-3 Stockholm attractions and sightseeing Explore Stockholm, a stunning mix of old and new architecture with a vibrant city feel, surrounded by shimmering blue water and an archipelago of around 24,000 islands. Have fun squeezing through Sweden’s narrowest alleyway in the Old Town – Gamla Stan, great for shopping too. Be transported up 130 metres in a glass gondola to the top of the Ericsson Globe, the views of the city and its islands are spectacular. And marvel at the 600-room Royal Palace, sitting atop the Gamla Stan. Witness Viking history at the Vasa museum. Visit Uppsala and Sigtuna, two nearby ancient cities, full of charming wooden buildings. Take advantage of extra daylight and stay out late at one of the city’s nightclubs, they’re open until 3am.
  • 3-5 Gota canal attractions and sightseeing Pick up the Gota canal boat at Soderkoping and embark on a leisurely cruise along the canal past majestic lakes, through wood-lined passages, past historic castles and fortresses, and alongside charming Swedish country villages. Travel through Lake Vattern, Sweden’s second largest lake, and through Forsvik, the oldest lock in the canal. Be amazed at the Berg locks, the canal’s biggest tourist attraction with its one flight of seven locks and another of two double locks.
  • 5-7 Gothenburg attractions and sightseeing Enjoy the city’s ornate architecture that lines its tram-rattled streets. Or stroll across the one of the city’s 17th century canals, through the green King’s Park to the shop-lined ‘Avenyn’ that leads to the city’s dramatic Poseidon fountain and the Konstmuseet, one of the many fine museums around the city. Hop on a boat for a blissful cruise along the Gota river, or catch a tram and head out to the nearby archipelago for a mellow spot of island-hopping. Stroll through Gothenburg’s Botanical Garden, one of Europe’s finest featuring 20,000 species of plants, flowers and trees, and have a steam at the 19th century Hagabadet (bathhouse). The Gothenburg Culture Festival takes place in August each year. A giant street party attracting around 700,000 festival goers enjoying live music, dance, film, street artists, history, comedy, poetry and theatre.
  • 7-9 Oslo attractions and sightseeing Soak up the atmosphere of Oslo by exploring the city on foot and taking in the great mix of old and new architecture. There’s a new urban waterside development with cafes, bars and street performers, lush green forests nearby, and fjords that bustle with sailboats. Or explore the Oslo region by bike from the harbour to the Aker Brygge, or on Skibladner – the oldest paddle steamer in the world. The Munch Museum is a ‘scream’, and take a leap of faith and visit the famed Holmenkollen Ski Museum and the ski jump.
  • 9-11 Bergen with ‘Norway in a nutshell’ attractions & sightseeing Take the scenic Bergen Railway from Oslo to Myrdal, ride the Flam Railway, one of the world’s steepest railway lines, with twisting tunnels spiraling in and out of the mountains. Across the steep hairpin bends of the Stalheimskleiva (May-September) and on to Bergen. This part of the itinerary takes you through the beautiful and majestic fjord landscape, through some of Norway’s most powerful and spectacular scenery. End in the historic ‘wooden’ coastal city of Bergen, ‘gateway to the fjords’, and home to the Hanseatic Wharf at Bryggen. Enjoy the view of Bergen, the sea and the fjords from a cable car that climbs the city hillsides up to the top of Mount Floyen. From the top you can take hike along a well-marked trail, back down to the city centre.

Spring in Sweden & Norway usually brings bright sunlight and cloudless skies

The best time to visit Sweden & Norway is during the summer months of June, July and August, when the climate is warm and the blossoming landscape at its prettiest, and when travel season is in full swing .

Autumn can also be a good time to visit, with the falling leaves providing a gorgeous golden show – though bear in mind that the coastal waters can get chilly as early as September, and that most sights and attractions maintain reduced hours outside of high season, from mid-September onwards.

However the Northern Lights Spectacle is a once in a life time experience which should not be missed .
