Frequently Asked Questions

See All FAQs

Who can go on this trip? What kind of teen typically goes on this trip?

Teens from all over the world join this program! Typically, our participants are culturally curious  individuals who are excited to make new friends, experience something unique, and interested in stepping out of their comfort zones and expanding their horizons.

This program is exclusively for students who are currently in grades 9th through 12th and approximately 14 to 18 years old. Students living outside of the USA are welcome to join!

Where do we stay?

Our hotels are chosen specifically in safe areas and are well suited to facilitating group supervision. We stay in centrally located accommodations, usually within walking distance of the main attractions. We do not use large, impersonal chain hotels on the outskirts of cities; we prefer to select smaller, family-run hotels where we establish personal relationships with the owners.

In Bergen, Oslo, Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Helsinki we stay in modern, convenient hotels right in the city center, in proximity to all the attractions and transit networks. For example, our Stockholm hotel is a 5-minute walk from Gamla Stan. In Voss, we stay right on Lake Vangsvatnet.

For safety reasons, we do not publish the names of the accommodations we use. We do not feel it is safe to publish the name of a hotel where a group of teenagers is staying abroad. After registering, participants and parents are given access to our secure parent website where you will be able to see the names of all of the accommodations for the program.

Do most travelers go on their own?

Yes! In fact, over 75% of students who travel with us choose to come independently. This encourages teens to step further outside their comfort zone and make new friends. We believe that one of the most rewarding and exciting elements of travel is the new friendships that form along the way. When we travel by ourselves, we are bound to make new friends from all over the country and even the world. The best part is, you can travel again with your new friends on another TFT program the next summer!

If you are thinking about joining a TFT program by yourself but you are feeling unsure, please let us know! We have plenty of references from solo travelers who had great experiences and would be happy to chat with you about it.

Can I bring a friend?

Absolutely! We ask that if you do come with a friend, you and your friend(s) maintain openness to meeting new people and sharing this special experience with the entire group.

What do students like most about the Scandinavia Adventure: Norway, Denmark, Sweden & Finland trip?

Students love that they are able to explore picturesque, buzzing cities alongside breathtaking nature in one of the most beautiful regions of Europe. The Scandinavia Adventure: Norway, Denmark, Sweden & Finland trip perfectly blends nature, adventure, history, and culture to give them an incredible overview of Scandinavia.

What is unique about the Scandinavia Adventure: Norway, Denmark, Sweden & Finland trip?

This action-packed itinerary presents a fantastic way to experience all that this unique region has to offer, including everything from the glaciers and fjords of Norway through to UNESCO Heritage-listed cities. A carefully crafted itinerary coupled with over a decade of TFT expertise in leading trips through Europe means the Scandinavia Adventure: Norway, Denmark, Sweden & Finland program provides unique insider access to the best of Scandinavia.

What is included?

Tuition cost includes ground transportation; accommodation; chaperones and guides; program-related activities and admissions; taxes and tips; all breakfasts and dinners.

Not included (this is not intended to be an exhaustive list) : airfare; visas and visa application fees; lunches, personal and medical expenses; activities and admissions that are not program-related or referenced in the itinerary; beverages other than filtered water at meals; participant expenses that are outside of the program description, such as excess baggage fees and damage to hotels; expenses related to unforeseen circumstances, such as transportation strikes and natural disasters.

How do the optional group flights work?

Upon registration, you will be contacted by our International Logistics Team to discuss the program’s flight details. There is no requirement to take the group flight, but there are several advantages to doing so. The group flight is usually chaperoned by a TFT staff member, and it also offers an opportunity for the students to get to know one another prior to the start of the program. Parents are responsible for coordinating transport to the departure airport – however, the logistics team will send out instructions detailing the exact meeting spot and airport point person. For additional information about flights, visit our dedicated flight page.

Who leads the program?

Our staff is a cut above the rest! We seek out two main characteristics in our counselors – extensive knowledge of and experience in our destinations, and a passion for working with teens. Our staff’s backgrounds include living abroad and working in summer camps or other educational settings. Team members are proven leaders and role models, who connect easily with others and form genuine friendships with each student – all while bringing each destination to life.

We celebrate diversity! Our staff represents 49 different nationalities, speak a combined total of 21 languages, and visited 142 countries. Additionally, 80% of our staff lived or worked abroad in their lives. With so many unique experiences to share, you are sure to gain a global perspective.

Our average minimum ratios are one staff member to every seven participants. Each program has one Trip Director with several support staff, depending on the group size. Directors must be at least 25 years old within the calendar year and have prior experience working with TFT.

What are the safety qualifications for our staff?

Our staff members undergo a rigorous hiring process. They receive the same background check as school educators, an extensive training process to go over all safety precautions and protocols, and are required to be certified in CPR and First Aid.  We exclusively hire responsible, multi-talented individuals who are safety-minded and are as passionate about teen travel as we are.

What is the average group size?

We pride ourselves on small group sizes to create a more authentic and personalized experience. Our group sizes fall between 13 and 24 students – the perfect size to facilitate new friendships without feeling lost in a crowd! We believe smaller groups eliminate the likelihood of cliques, and allows for a well-rounded, healthy group dynamic.

How does this program connect to other programs?

Our program dates are designed specifically so that participants can opt to combine trips throughout the summer.  When connecting to another program, your counselor will escort you to the airport on the last day of the program and assist you in meeting your next group at your new destination.

What is the food like on this program?

In a word – delicious! At TFT, we believe food is an integral aspect of the travel experience, and we make an effort to eat at authentic establishments whenever possible. There is no better way to immerse ourselves in the culture of a place then through sampling the local delicacies. We stray away from westernized restaurants and chains that cater to tourists, because every true traveler knows the best food is found where the locals are eating!

Norwegian cuisine offers some of the freshest seafood in the world. For the adventurous, try a delicious reindeer hot dog! Have the best smoked salmon of your life with a delicious Smørrebrød (open sandwich) in Denmark and sample the world-famous Swedish meatballs. These are just some of the delights on offer, and with New Nordic cuisine becoming so popular, you will have no shortage of delicious meals to try and enjoy.

Of course, we are always willing and able to accommodate vegetarians, vegans, gluten allergies, and other dietary restrictions.

Do we ever get time to go off on our own?

Our staff and teens are nearly always together, but we do provide the opportunity to break up into smaller groups to allow for flexibility and customization within the itinerary.

We offer free time in defined safe areas – for example, shopping in a market or exploring a museum. During these times, students remain in groups of at least two and are given no more than an hour. Of course, the counselors remain nearby and available. Additionally, a lifeguard-certified counselor supervises the campers any time they are involved in water activities.

Do I need any vaccinations for this program?

We recommend checking with your family doctor regarding vaccinations and medical advice for the destination you are visiting. For more information, please check the World Health Organization’s website . Upon registration, we provide a list of recommended vaccinations that can be discussed further with your doctor. For Specific questions pertaining to the COVID-19 vaccine, click here .

What kind of visa do you need for this trip?

Any US citizen that enters Europe is automatically granted a free 90-day tourist visa.

When joining a TFT trip from outside of the US, please be sure to check your country’s specific visa requirements.

Do I need to speak the language?

No, our skilled staff members will help you get around and even teach you a few fun phrases!

WHAT TO EXPECT

Our small group trip to Scandinavia caters to travelers in their 20s and 30s looking to explore the modern marvels of Oslo, the charming old streets of Stockholm, and the idyllic harbor of Copenhagen.

Scandinavia is a community-centric region and one of the best places to travel with a group of new friends. Over eight days, you’ll crisscross the beautiful and progressive capitals of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark as you’re introduced to the Scandinavian way of life. You’ll find similarities among the three nations yet also fall for their nuances and appreciate their subtle differences.

This trip moves at a quicker pace than some of our others since we visit three cities in three different nations. Expect eight days of discovery that will broaden your mind and leave you planning your return.

Day 1 - Oslo Arrive

After you land in Oslo, head to our hotel in the center of town to drop off your bags and unwind. Congrats, you made it to Scandinavia!

That evening, we’ll roll to a nearby rooftop bar for welcome drinks with the crew. Take in the view; this is one of Europe’s most unique capitals—a place where modern glass towers come face to face with a thousand years of history.

After unwinding with new friends, we’ll mosey on over to our welcome dinner, and you’ll dive right into your first Norwegian eats.

Enjoy floating saunas in Oslo.

Day 2 - Oslo Nordic Delights

Wake up and grab some grub at the hotel before we head out for a day of Oslo exploration. Today, we’re checking out the old, the new, and the delicious as we meet up with a local guide and trek off on a tour of the town that’s just as tasty as it is informative.

You’ll sample some of the most delectable Nordic dishes as you learn the ins and outs of a city chock full of trendy cafes and exciting restaurants. Along the way, you’ll find more than a few modern marvels (hello opera house!) and discover why this is consistently ranked one of the most livable cities in the whole world.

In the afternoon, we’ll head to the harbor for one outrageously steamy good time aboard a floating sauna, and then you can hit the town and cruise to the coolest bars around with new friends.

The food in Scandinavia is diverse.

Day 3 - Oslo, Stockholm Sights of sweden

Get an early start this morning, we’re rolling out along one of our favorite romantic routes as we board the train from Oslo to Stockholm, so grab a coffee and soak up those oh-so-picturesque sights.

We’ll get into the Swedish capital by mid-afternoon and make our way over to the hotel. Relax if you’d like, or hit the streets and check out the colorful cobbled streets of the charming old town for some historical fun.

That evening, we’ll all get together to twist up some Scandinavian specialties at our own private cocktail-making class. Then grab dinner with friends and check out Stockholm’s vibrant nightlife.

Stockholm's old streets are great for walking around with friends.

Day 4 - Stockholm city of islands

We've got a big day ahead of us, so toss on those walking shoes; we're starting our day on the cobbled streets of Gamla Stan.

These medieval nooks and crannies are as cute as they come in Europe and are filled with history—some date to the 13th century. We'll grab a mid-morning Fika (Swedish coffee and snacks) with friends and then cruise over to one of Europe's best museums to check out the world's only intact 17th-century gunship.

Kick back and relax in the afternoon or keep on exploring before we all meet up for a fantastic group dinner.

The restaurants in Sweden are great.

Day 5 - Stockholm Waterfront Chillin’

The morning is free, but we recommend having breakfast like a local along the harbor and then strolling the waterfront to check out the view.

Meet up with the rest of the crew in the middle of the day; we’re heading out on a cruise to get a whole new perspective on the 14 islands that make up this friendly capital.

We’ll grab lunch together, and then the day is yours. If you’re up for it, grab a scooter and ride over to the ever so hip Södermalm to wander the streets of Stockholm’s answer to Brooklyn. Try to find dinner at one of the neighborhood’s chic spots before you hit the bars one last time in Sweden.

The islands of Sweden.

Day 6 - Stockholm, Copenhagen Down to denmark

We've got one more scenic Scandinavian ride in store for you today; we're hopping the train to Copenhagen. We'll get to our hotel in the afternoon, and then it's off for a sip of suds to welcome us to town.

We're checking out one of the best breweries this colorful capital has to offer before dinner, so grab a few pints if you like. From there, we're heading to Tivoli Gardens, the oldest operating amusement park in the world and supposedly Walt Disney's inspiration for Disneyland.

After some roller coaster madness, grab a bite with the crew and then see where the night takes you.

Ride bikes through old Scandinavia streets.

Day 7 - Copenhagen Bike like a dane

Wake up early for a full day of exploring on two wheels with a Danish guide to check out the city like only a local would.

On our tour of these neoclassical streets, you’ll learn about the remarkable history of the nation and this city which grew from humble beginnings as a traditional Viking village in the 12th century.

After poking around in the past and an introduction to the social progress of the present, head out and explore with friends on your own. The city’s harbor, parks, and palaces are easy to get around and a blast to explore. That night, we’ll all grab drinks and one final dinner together to celebrate an awesome week.

The Scandinavia trip is great for nightlife.

Day 8 - Copenhagen Farvel!

And just like that you twisted through Scandinavia and three of the most iconic cities in Europe. Grab a final breakfast with friends before you head off.

If you’ve got some more time, well then we’re jealous. Keep on trekking and discovering all this special place has to offer.

Got a few more days to spare on the way home? Check out some unreal mountain views in Iceland with the FTLO crew. We’ll see you next time!

In Norway, no one can disguise their earnings, as every citizen's tax returns are made available for everyone else in the country to inspect.

While we can’t guarantee private rooms, you sho uld book your trip earlier if you prefer one, as they usually fill up.

The closest arrival airport is Oslo Gardermoen Airport (OSL).

The closest departure airport is Copenhagen Airport - Københavns Lufthavn, Kastrup (CPH).

Though they are amazing, Scandinavian countries are known for being quite expensive. Average prices are much higher than most US cities. For example, in Oslo, a 5 mile taxi ride is around $20 and an average cocktail price at trendy bar is $16.

On European trips, we stay as close to historic city centers as possible. This means your accommodations will often be on the small side, quirky, and unique (we love this!).

Credit/debit cards are widely accepted in Scandinavia - in fact, some establishments will not accept cash and travelers can often get away with exclusively using a card in these countries. Just make sure that your card does not charge any foreign transaction fees as these can really add up!

​As a region, Scandinavia offers a winning combination of delicious food, cool locals, intriguing architecture, progressive thought, phenomenal shopping, and modern design.

Located in in northern Europe, Scandinavia is traditionally made up of Norw ay, Denmark and Sweden, all three of which consistently rank as the happiest countries in the world, with Denmark currently being number one.

Denmark, Norway and Sweden Tours & Trips

Scandinavia is anything but ordinary. Denmark's Jutland Peninsula is a paradise to those looking for silence and Copenhagen is a wonderful city to explore by bike. The Danish are connected to Sweden through the Oresund Bridge, so once you're on Swedish ground, head to the coastal city of Malmo or Stockholm. Bergen is the starting point for anyone looking to get to the fjords, but if you'd like the commodity of staying in the city, Norway 's capital city, Oslo boasts impressive architecture that is sure to impress you.

Scenic Scandinavia and its Fjords (14 Days)

We could not have possibly seen all the sights that we did had we planned the tour ourselves. The organization of the itinerary, the efficiency of getting from one location to another, the coordination of the travel, luggage management, and entry to sights was superb. The scenery was breathtaking. Although we took many pictures, they do not do justice of seeing the areas in person. We traveled by coach from city to city and some days required extensive traveling. However, due to the skill of our professional driver and the expertise of our tour guide, the trips did not seem so long or taxing. In particular, our tour guide planned for multiple rest stops along the way and in some cases this involved a local treat that presented opportunities for unique snapshots. In almost all cases, the stops involved opportunities for food and refreshments. All breaks were welcomed. Despite the stops, we were always on time at our destinations or even early in some cases. At each city where we stayed overnight, there was always some scenic pleasure or local flavor to experience. Our tour director was exceptionally knowledgeable of the local areas and customs and always provided us with very helpful information to allow us to navigate around the area without difficulty. In addition, the tour director kept us lively and energized by sharing stories and history of the areas through which we were passing. She was quite skilled at keeping our group together and providing us with a rewarding experience. The only issues we had were with the weather (heat wave in the area with no air conditioning at most of the hotels) which we understand is not under Trafalgar's control. The hotels were OK for the most part, but we would have preferred an American style hotel. We also understand that the meals had to be buffet style, but we did not like the need to have to jostle and nudge to get our meals, especially when competing with other tour groups at the buffet line. With the heat, having to work for the meals was quite taxing and detracted from the experience somewhat. We also understand that the pace of the itinerary was necessary to cover the ground that we did, but a more leisurely pace would have been appreciated. Getting up early every morning and traveling all day and then trying to sleep in hot hotels with no air conditioning was a challenge on some days. But, despite some of these issues, overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the trip and glad we had the experience we did.

Scandinavian Capitals Tour

Scandinavian Capitals

Biggest problem that we had was a guide because of her heavy Spanish accent, it was hard to understand her sometimes. Also, the information that she presented to us was not sufficient or interesting. She was repetitive, searching for words. Accommodations were good except the last hotel in Stockholm. It was outside of the city, shabby, old . I would use a different tour company next time.

I felt that there were too many days spent traveling. Beatrix was very efficient, friendly and helpful but tended to repeat herself many times.

A Taste of Scandinavia Tour

  • Sightseeing

A Taste of Scandinavia

Nikolai was FANTASTIC!!!! He was a great tour leader. The tour took us to many places and he educated us well. However, just a few negative comments. The hotels were not satisfactory ....I am used to better hotels when I travel. Carrying my luggage throughout the tour was very burdensome. I am an older person, and although I am in great shape, I did not want to be responsible for carrying my luggage everywhere. There was an 89 year old man on our trip. He had a real hard time catching up. I usually go on escorted tours where my luggage, and everything else, is handled by the guides, not by me. I loved the places that wer went to and overall I would suggest people take Tourradar and Intrepid if they don't mind doing some of the labor involved.

Grand Scandinavia (Classic, 20 Days) Tour

Grand Scandinavia (Classic, 20 Days)

The whole tour was amazing. i didn't realise what there was in the 3 countries we visited. The scenery was out if this world. Gregs knowledge of the area was very good and he had some good ideas for place to go on our free time. Zultan the driver was so good (i'm a driver myself) at negotiating the twist and turns of the roads. Not easy with a bus!!! Goerge our relief driver was also very good. This is the best tour I have been one (my 1st insight tour) I have been with 2 other companies in the past and this tour , driver and tour leader were out front by a very long margin.

Capitals of Scandinavia (10 Days) Tour

Our Tour Director Mike was very knowledgeable about all the places we went to The be my guest lunch was off the beaten track and was sensational. As a solo traveller I felt reassured as Mike was making sure I was Ok. We had a wonderful bus driver Greg who made sure we had a safe journey in unpredictable weather

Group Tours for Young Travellers in Iceland

Experience Iceland with like-minded young travellers on a guided group tour. See the land of fire and ice on an active adventure for people aged 20-39.

Go on a travel adventure in South Iceland

The South Iceland Adventure is no ordinary trip to Iceland. This 5-day guided small group tour in Iceland is designed especially for active 20 - 39-year-old travellers, with an emphasis on faster-paced daily journeys, more youthful activities and authentic tastes of Icelandic young adult culture and nightlife. Enjoy major attractions like the Golden Circle, the northern lights, the Reykjavik nightlife, glaciers, waterfalls and more -- see the full itinerary here .

Travelling solo in Iceland? Make new friends from around the world in a group of 16 travellers max — a few too many people to fit comfortably in a selfie but enough for a welcome dose of diversity and fun stories to share. Learn how to pronounce skál (“cheers”) and other cool new Icelandic words from your energetic local tour guide. But don’t worry if you can’t master the tongue-twisting language because almost everyone in Iceland speaks good English.

Put down that heavy backpack, because you’ll be travelling around in a cosy van with free Wi-Fi for livestreaming your Icelandic adventures to (very jealous) friends back home. Enjoy some quiet relaxation — and privacy — each night at a comfy hotel , not a noisy dorm in a youth hostel. This trip may be adventurous, but it's way more comfortable than most tours for young adults in Iceland.

Included in this tour:

  • One included private transfer from Keflavík Airport to Reykjavík
  • Accommodation (comfort) for 4 nights
  • Daily breakfast
  • Professional English-speaking guide, as per itinerary
  • Transportation in a premium mini-coach, as per itinerary
  • Reykjavík Pub Crawl with City Walk (drinks not included)
  • Ice Cave tour (3 to 3.5 Hours)
  • One semi-private transfer from Reykjavík to Keflavík Airport on departure
  • Map of Iceland and detailed personal itinerary
  • Nordic Visitor's Iceland Travel Guide
  • 24/7 helpline
  • Taxes & service fees

See the whole list of what's included

Getting to Iceland is easier and more affordable than you think.

With the ever-growing number of flights to Keflavik Airport from North America and Europe, it’s easier than ever to find good airfare deals to Iceland with budget airlines. Flight times to Iceland are just 3 hours from London, 5.5 hours from New York and 7.5 hours from Seattle. And hey, no vaccinations needed! 

Get more info about flights to Iceland

Get VIP access to South Iceland’s glaciers, waterfalls and northern lights.

If you think South Iceland’s natural wonders look amazing on social media, imagine what they’re like in real life. Picture what it’s like to walk on top of — and inside — a massive glacier, with crampons strapped to your boots and a wilderness guide to lead you around a labyrinth of blue ice.  

Get close enough to giant waterfalls to hear the thunderous roar and feel the mist on your face. Explore places that appear in music videos by artists like Kaleo, Bon Iver and Justin Bieber. And with a little luck from Mother Nature, watch the northern lights put on a show like you’ve never seen. 

Check out #NordicVisitor on Instagram to see what we’re talking about

Try some Icelandic foods that are worthy of a photo op. 

In Iceland, the adventure extends to the cuisine. Munch on some delicious Icelandic specialties like free-range lamb, fresh seafood, vegetables grown in geothermal greenhouses and creamy yogurt-like skyr . Feeling adventurous? Try some strange Icelandic delicacies like fermented shark , dried fish or the omnipresent black licorice candies beloved by locals. Yum!  

Whether it’s a steaming bowl of homemade lobster soup or a famous Icelandic hot dog ordered eina með öllu (the works), your stomach and Instagram feed will both be satisfied in Iceland. With Reykjavik’s flourishing foodie scene — including Scandinavian-style food halls with cheap bites, youthful cafes with vegan options, and restaurants with international fusion cuisine — there’s something for all tastes and budgets in Iceland. 

Discover where the Reykjavik locals go to party and hang out .

Have you ever had a cocktail made with a birch-infused liqueur named Björk? Or the Icelandic national schnapps nicknamed “The Black Death”? Or an Icelandic craft beer brewed near the Arctic Circle?

If you said “no” to any of those, this trip gives you a chance to remedy that. With a local leading your tour you’ll discover the best bars and clubs to go to in Reykjavik to experience the legendary Icelandic nightlife. This is where that Icelandic word skál comes in handy.

Travel like a local in Iceland with Nordic Visitor. 

With the local expertise of Nordic Visitor, you’ll also know: 

  • Where to shop for the best local designs, Icelandic music and those woolly lopapeysa sweaters
  • How to experience the Icelandic swimming pool culture
  • Which coffee houses are popular with the young locals
  • Where to find cool street art to photograph in downtown Reykjavik
  • And so much more! Check out our pre-travel information here

We can even add extra nights in Reykjavik, with a variety of accommodations for different budgets, and optional activities, like a visit to the Blue Lagoon, to your trip.

Scott, United Kingdom

Iceland full circle classic - winter, november 2023, we had an amazing time.

We cannot recommend our tour enough. We had an amazing time and have already told friends and family about it. Iceland is an amazing place and I am sure we will be back and will use Nordic Visitor again!

James, United States

Iceland full circle classic, september 2023, experience of a lifetime.

I primarily wanted to use Nordic Visitor as a resource for creating our 14-day trip itinerary, to help weed through what seemed to be an endless array of choices, and to help us to get the very most out of our time in Iceland. Yes, we could have pieced it together ourselves but I needed an advocate in Iceland, an advisor, and maybe a resource for us if issues were to arise. That piece of mind was important to my wife and me and I'm glad we chose them to frame our trip. It made it much easier to piece in the parts that were important to us to see and experience. That allowed us to just enjoy the trip and not get bogged down in the details of planning each and every moment.

There are so many things I could say about our experience, an experience of a lifetime and after posting snippets of our trip on social media I have found that several friends of mine want to know how we planned this trip. I told them the same thing I am saying here, save a little money if you want and plan it yourself or trust a reliable source like Nordic Visitor and let them give you the trip framework and essential advice. I would do it the same way if I were doing it over.

Dean, United States

Highlights of the ring road - private, july 2023, went off without a hitch.

Everything was well-organised and went off without a hitch. The private guide was amazing. He could not have been better. I highly recommend him to anyone considering a private guide as an option. He's extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area. He knew all of the best places to go and was entertaining and delightful as well. Accommodation was all spectacular.

Winter highlights - private, november 2023, warm and engaging guide.

Great tour. The sights are of course amazing and the tour made the most of our time, weather and our interests/priorities. Driver and guide David managed all of these very well. He was also very knowledgeable and personally warm and engaging. Could not have asked for more.

Natural wonders of iceland, august 2023, perfect for solo traveller.

A beautiful itinerary, exceptional guide and perfect weather made this a trip I will never forget. Nordic Visitor made the process easy, and Iceland opened her arms. My 10-day small group tour was perfect for a solo traveller who wanted to see it all. 

Cynthia, United States

Best of south iceland, april 2023.

Working with Nordic Visitor was wonderful. Our travel consultant, Heddy, was quick to respond when we had a question or concern. She helped us plan a fabulous itinerary. Everything we booked through Nordic Visitor was fantastic. I have already recommended Nordic Visitor to friends, and I will continue to do so.

Kimberly, Canada

Iceland road trip, october 2023, trip of a lifetime.

Overall this was an amazing experience! A trip of a lifetime that I could never have planned myself. Any questions I had during planning were answered faster than expected and I felt safe and well looked after during the trip. Trip was smooth and hassle free.

Patricia, United States

Scenic south iceland, august 2023, 5-star experience.

Not only did we absolutely love every stop on the Scenic South Iceland tour, but prior to the tour we stayed for 4 days in Reykjavík. I appreciated Nordic Visitor's recommendations for things to do and places to eat there and felt highly supported by Marko, our travel consultant, in every regard to booking our flight and own hotel, day trips I was interested in, and taking public transport around. A definite 5-star experience!

Janice, United States

Winter highlights & northern lights, march 2023, i will certainly travel with nordic visitor again.

I cannot thank Nordic Visitor enough for providing me with a wonderful and memorable once-in-a-lifetime experience. Everything was seamless, from the pickup at the airport, to the excellent hotels, delicious food served and our friendly, knowledgeable guide, Jakob. Nothing was too much trouble - we all thoroughly enjoyed our experience in Iceland, and all came away with wonderful memories of many of the amazing sights of such a scenic country. We were even lucky enough to see the northern lights. I will certainly travel with Nordic Visitor again and would recommend them to anyone thinking about visiting the countries where they offer tours. Thank you Nordic Visitor!

David, Australia

Iceland full circle classic - winter, october 2023, many thanks to nordic visitor.

Absolutely amazing. No issues whatsoever. We saw it all from North to South and much of in between. From reindeer to whales and more beautiful waterfalls and volcanic bits than you could hope to see in a week. Every hour the scenery seemed to change dramatically. Just a great experience. Many thanks to Nordic Visitor.

Robert, United States

Romance around iceland, july 2023, best vacation we have had.

Everyone at Nordic Visitor were very responsive to all questions we had during our 30-year anniversary trip to Iceland. We had airline travel issues and the representative adjusted our itinerary so we were able to see the whole island. The accommodation were beautiful and everyone was so friendly. This was the best vacation we have had, we left Iceland relaxed!

Seth, United States

A new year’s to remember, december 2022, an amazing and unique experience.

Our tour was great! Went for our honeymoon and it was everything we wanted. First night we got to see the northern lights which were fantastic! Second day, most certainly our longest, visited several sites (Geysire & Þingvellir) and went snowmobiling on a glacier. Such an amazing and unique experience. The walking tour around Reykjavik was surprisingly educational and our guide pointed out things that we ordinarily would have missed. The NYE dinner was delicious and going out to see the firework displays by (what seemed to be like) everyone was something. Practically had to dodge fireworks! Our 4th day was spent at the Blue Lagoon; perfect after a night of partying! Our last day was nice and relaxing, did some final shopping before we headed off to the airport. Hope to go back & visit Iceland again!

Alan and Donna

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.

Lisa, United States

A tale of four cities, may 2018, wonderful experience with nordic visitor..

Overall a wonderful trip and wonderful experience with Nordic Visitor.

Jenna, United States

The golden triangle of scandinavia, august 2016, completely lived up to our expectations.

Irja was wonderful! She put our trip together perfectly and our entire visit from one country to the next was seamless. It could not have been any easier or well coordinated. My emails were responded to promptly and all my questions were answered thoroughly and with patience. I usually plan all my trips myself but it was so nice to let Irja know what I wanted and let her do all the tedious planning and booking. It was really amazing and our trip completely lived up to our expectations! I feel like a spoiled traveler now because Irja took a lot of the travel planning headache away from me and she did a really great job. We really appreciated the complimentary upgrades too!

Alan, United States

The golden triangle of scandinavia, april 2016, high degree of professionalism.

Probably the most important service I received was Cecilia's prompt answers to all my questions. My requests were handled expeditiously. As for the accommodations, they ranged from very good to excellent. Of particular note is the fact that Cecilia had to react quickly to hotel employees' strike at one of the hotels. She quickly found arranged for me to stay at another hotel, which was most impressive (both her ability to improvise and the quality of the hotel). She was also quite helpful in recommending certain places of interest to visit and the advisability of purchasing city passes for transportation and sightseeing.

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. 

Graham, Singapore

I have done two once circle tour of Iceland and now Scandinavian east to west. Your professional attitude in handling the minutest details is something I admire the most. It helps everyone to be prepared. Thanks

Highlights of Scandinavia & Baltic Cruise, July 2016

We´d like to return.

The tour was highly enjoyable. We visited some wonderful places. Whilst we like to be independent, the organisation of our transport and accommodation was very good and allowed us to really relax and unwind. There are many places we'd like to return to. More time in Norway is certainly on our agenda!

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.

Nordic Visitor handled everything very professionaly.

Marlene, New Zealand

Scandinavian highlights by car, september 2016, highly recommended.

My only question is: Why is there not an "Excellent" option? Our holiday was most excellent in every way...! From my first email enquiry regarding the tour to the last minute of our holiday every aspect was excellent. Cecilia made the whole planning experience smooth and seamless, and the tour itself was most excellent. Wow! What an incredible job Nordic Visitor does! We felt so spoilt because everything had been done for us... all we needed to do was drive and have fun. This was an incredible tour and I can't speak highly enough about the slick operation Nordic Visitor runs. Highly, highly recommended!

Laurie, United States

Highlights of scandinavia & finland cruise, july 2016.

The support that Cicci and her colleagues provided was outstanding. We had a few minor things that needed to be adjusted during our trip and we received immediate and prompt service. All questions were addressed quickly and when changes were required, all our requests were met with a willing attitude. The trip was wonderful and it was nice to know that we had someone to contact should we have encountered any problems.

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.

Scandinavian Highlights by Car, September 2017

Definitely recommend your company.

I would definitely recommend your company. Very helpful on the phone when booking and arranging extra items such as GPS. Very good English spoken.

A Tale of Four Cities, July 2017

Amazing tour.

This was an amazing tour for us to take as a family holiday (with teenagers) giving us a little insight into each country. Clearly planned to make the most of each city.  

Matt, United States

Scandinavian highlights by car, june 2016, went incredibly smoothly.

We had a great experience from the very beginning. Cicci was always quick to respond to emails and answered all our questions prior to us making our final booking. Once we booked all the details (hotels, etc) started coming in and it was really helpful to have the "highlights" booklet to help us plan what we wanted to see and where we should stop each day on our drive. Really everything went incredibly smoothly through out the entire trip! We have no complaints!!

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.

Guided Small Groups

Independent cruise, independent train, scandinavian triangle, scandinavia trip ideas for singles and solo visitors.

There are many reasons why Scandinavia is such a great travel destination for single and solo visitors.

Firstly, if you are an English speaker, it is easy to interact with the locals as so many Scandinavians are fluent in the language. So whether you want to strike up a conversation or need help with directions, you won’t need to worry about any language barrier.

Another advantage of Scandinavia tours for singles is that Sweden, Norway and Denmark are some of the safest countries in the world. You can expect clean cities, high standards of road safety, and low crime rates too.

In addition, getting around Scandinavia is easy thanks to excellent transport connections and relatively short distances between the capitals. This is why we highly recommend the Scandinavian Triangle route for solo visitors.

You can visit Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen in one incredible trip, travelling between the cities via train, plane or ferry. Spend your days enjoying walking tours, savouring delicious meals in Scandinavian restaurants, or cycling along pedestrianised streets and bike lanes.

Your Scandinavian travel adventure could encompass the countryside too. Head to Bergen on the west coast of Norway to witness the stunning fjords, or venture into the bucolic landscapes of southern Sweden. You can even go island-hopping in the Stockholm Archipelago, a summertime idyll for Swedish city-dwellers.

As a Northern European tour operator, Nordic Visitor specialises in organising holidays to this beautiful corner of the world. We have many more ideas to help you explore Scandinavia your way!

  • From free Wi-Fi hotspots to health and safety, find out why Scandinavia is perfect for solo travel

As a solo visitor to Scandinavia, you have the freedom to decide just how long you want to spend in the region. Whether a week, 15 days or longer, we can come up with the perfect itinerary to suit you.

Here’s one of our suggestions for a Scandinavia solo travel itinerary:

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

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

Or, a ferry ride will whisk you off to the island of Djurgården, home to the Nordic Museum and Skansen, the world’s oldest open-air museum. Meanwhile, a day trip to the Stockholm Archipelago means you could swim in the Baltic Sea and hike through forests.

Day 3 - Fly to Copenhagen, Denmark Head to Stockholm Airport after breakfast and board a plane to Copenhagen. Once in Denmark’s capital, take a walk down the city’s popular Strøget street for a bite to eat, or go check out the fun and games at the old fashioned Tivoli Gardens amusement park.

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, spend the day enjoying more of Copenhagen. Why not make like the bicycle-happy Danes and rent a bike?

You could check out the exquisite Amalienborg Palace, as well as the colourful Nyhavn harbour and the Little Mermaid statue. Later, head to the port for your cruise to Oslo.

Day 6 - Explore Norway’s capital city After your ship arrives early in the morning, the whole day is yours to roam Oslo. Take a walk to the bustling Aker Brygge waterfront area and visit the Akershus Fortress. Or, head to the Bygdøy peninsula to explore historic museums. 

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, go to Oslo Central Station to begin your Norway in a Nutshell® experience – one of the most scenic rail journeys in the world. Look out the window to see picturesque landscapes and quaint villages like Gol and Geilo.

Change at Myrdal to board the Flåm Railway for one of the top highlights of the entire trip: a 900-metre (half-mile) descent to the picturesque village of Flåm, where you’ll stay for the night.

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.

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 solo Scandinavia tour?

There are so many more options for your Scandinavia solo travel itinerary. You could combine your tour of Sweden, Norway and Denmark with a visit to Helsinki or Tallinn, the capitals of Finland and Estonia respectively.

After exploring these cities, step aboard a cruise that whisks you to Stockholm. You’ll cross the Baltic Sea overnight to begin your exploration of the Scandinavian Triangle the following day.

Another alternative is to head deeper into rural Scandinavia. Discover natural gems like the breathtaking fjords and mountains of Norway. You could journey even further up the west coast towards the Lofoten Islands on a Havila or Hurtigruten cruise , for an intrepid travel adventure towards the Arctic Circle.

Like the sound of an odyssey to the far north of Europe? Then we recommend visiting Lapland – a remote region covering parts of Sweden, Finland and Norway. Come in winter for snowy landscapes and the chance to see the northern lights illuminate the night sky.

Or hop on a plane and visit Iceland as part of your Nordic experience!

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 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 a great option! These tours run from May to August, so you can enjoy summer travel in Scandinavia.

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

  • Want the company of an expert guide and like-minded travellers? Here are 7 brilliant reasons to go on a European group tour

Prefer a self-guided tour of Scandinavia?

If you would like to discover Scandinavia on your own but prefer not to drive, then an independent tour is the perfect choice. Public transportation in Scandinavia is fast, reliable and punctual, so getting around by train and ferry is a great alternative to driving.

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.

  • First time in the Nordics? See our 7 amazing Scandinavia tour ideas for first-time visitors

How about a solo Scandinavia road trip?

You could explore Scandinavia on a self-drive tour , giving you the freedom to stop at lookout points and attractions whenever you want. Get ready for an unforgettable solo adventure, with incredible scenery outside your window keeping you company all the while.

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.

You could opt for a circular route between Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo, flying in and out of the Swedish capital, for example. This way, you could soak up the verdant countryside, rural villages, and grand castles and manor houses in this corner of Scandinavia.

All of Nordic Visitor’s Scandinavia self-drive tour packages can be tailored by our local experts with extra nights at select locations or modified driving routes. If you have any particular attractions in mind, just contact us to ask.
