Description of Berlin to Oslo small group holiday

Join a small group tour full of opportunities to discover the beauty and landmarks of five popular European cities. You’ll spend a few days in Berlin, where you can admire historic monuments, learn the harrowing stories behind Checkpoint Charlie, and sample some of the German capital’s legendary nightlife in Friedrichshain or Kreuzberg.

From Berlin you’ll travel by train to nearby Hamburg, with time to see this city’s striking architecture, and wander the vast Speicher Stadt warehouse district, before continuing by train and ferry to Copenhagen.

Here, in the trendy Danish capital, you’ll be exploring on two wheels, joining the locals as you tour the city on bicycles. Copenhagen is one of Europe’s most dynamic and picturesque capitals. From Tivoli Gardens, with the world’s oldest wooden rollercoaster, to the offbeat Christiania neighbourhood and the pastel-painted waterfront houses, this city is a delightful place to spend a few days.

In Gothenburg, a guided walking tour will show you around city highlights such as the renowned Feskekörka fish market, the old docks, and the opera house. You can sample Swedish delicacies including haggebulle, a tasty cinnamon bun, or meatballs with lingonberry jam.

Finally, the tour reaches the Norwegian capital, Oslo, where, time permitting, another guided walking tour will introduce to this quirky destination that is rivalling Copenhagen and Berlin for its bar, café and creative scenes. On your last night of a memorable trip, you can toast your fellow travellers over a traditional fish dinner. Skal!

ITINERARY CHANGE IN 2019:
In 2019 this trip will be starting in Copenhagen on a Sunday, then travel to Gothenburg via Malmo, visit Vrango Island as a day trip from Gothenburg, before finishing in Oslo. The trip will be 7 days instead of previously 8 days. The trip will also include a guided tour of the Freetown of Christiania in Copenhagen with a local guide, alongside the bike ride which remains included.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
When travelling through Scandinavia we use public transport where possible, which is the most sustainable way of moving around. On this trip we travel mostly by train, but we also take a public bus on the stretch between Gothenburg and Oslo. Not only is this a very comfortable way of travelling, this journey also follows a very scenic route and offers a great opportunity to strike up conversations with the local people.

All our leaders are passionate about responsible travel, so our messaging around the importance of environmental issues is always consistent. Our leaders make the effort to teach our passengers about recycling in Scandinavia, which is well ahead of the game in comparison to other European nations. We hope some of our passengers will take these ideas home with them to help improve the environment where they live.

We supply our customers with canvas bags to use throughout the trip and to encourage them to say no to plastic ones. We also suggest the use of refillable water bottles as tap water all over Scandinavia is drinkable.

On our trips we use locally owned and run businesses, such as hotels and restaurants. This way we are able to support the local Scandinavian economy instead of large international chains and corporations.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

This trip is run entirely by our European Destination Management Company (or DMC) and they share our values when it comes to responsible travel. The trip is run by local leaders from the region, who are employed and paid in accordance with current industry standards. We also employ local guides where feasible, for instance in Copenhagen when we take a cycling tour around the city centre and to the enclave of Christiania.

We make sure our small groups take nothing but memories (and photos!) and leave nothing but footprints. This small group tour has a maximum of 12 participants, meaning that we have a low impact on the communities we visit and are able to ensure that we don’t disrupt or contribute to the displacement of local people.

Our small groups also allows us to stay in family-run hotels and pensions that cannot benefit from coach tours and other mass tourism due to their limited size. We also support small restaurants and cafes.
