Short Description

From the vibrant cities to the gorgeous scenery, this tour visits Northern Europe’s fascinating capitals— Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm, and Helsinki—and St. Petersburg. In each city, you’ll experience guided sightseeing of the must-see sights, including Copenhagen's Little Mermaid statue and the Royal Reception Rooms at Christiansborg Palace, used by the Queen for official occasions; Oslo's City Hall, decorated with great Norwegian art from 1900 to 1950, and Frogner Park, where Gustav Vigeland created over 200 extraordinary bronze and granite statues; Stockholm's City Hall, where the Nobel Prize banquet is held each year; Helsinki’s Lutheran Cathedral, completed in 1852, and the famous open-air market; and St. Petersburg’s Hermitage Museum, with one of the world’s finest art collections, plus St. Isaac's Cathedral, Russia’s largest cathedral and the fourth largest in Europe.

A tour highlight is an overnight Baltic Sea cruise from Stockholm to Helsinki. You'll stay in first-class, outside, two-berth cabins with private facilities, and you'll enjoy a special Smörgåsbord dinner on board. This is just one of the out-of-the-ordinary experiences Globus includes to make your vacation unique. Other special treats are a Swedish food experience, where you can sample local specialties at some of the stalls in Gothenburg's indoor food market, and a Russian specialty dinner in St. Petersburg.

On this Northern Europe tour, you’ll also experience some of Northern Europe’s beautiful scenery. From Gothenburg to Norway, travel along the Skagerrak coastline with its many islands, granite rocks, and charming little fishing villages. Take a ferry from Elsinore, Denmark to Helsingborg, Sweden, with great views of Hamlet's Kronborg Castle. Drive through Sweden's scenic Värmland, home to 10,000 lakes dotting the forested landscape, including Sweden's largest lake, Vänern.

Stunning scenery, tasty local cuisine, a Baltic Sea cruise, and fascinating sightseeing… all of this and more await you on this fantastic tour through Northern Europe.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.

With the exception of flight delays, everything went on smoothly. I like that we were immediately booked for the next flight when we missed our plane. The tour guides shared very valuable information about the places we visited, the local tour guides did exceptionally well too. Our tour director Rudolf was always on top of things. Peter is humorous.

What an enjoyable trip! The only negative comment I can say is that on our first day breakfast buffet at NH Hotel in Prague the restaurant was overly packed we could hardly pass thru to get food. That was totally frustrating for everyone. It wouldn’t be an issue if we were not on time limit.
