Description of Scandinavia small group tour

This cracking three week trip around Scandinavia is the best small group tour on the circuit; probably. From Germany to Finland via Denmark, Sweden and Norway, you'll travel by road, rail and overnight ferry to some of the coolest locations on the planet.

This is much more than a tour of the highlights, there are also lots of Scandinavian quirks thrown in for good measure. Nights out in Berlin, for instance, and a thousand and one taste sensations in Oslo's Mathallen food hall.

Of course, you simply can't ignore the crinkle cut coastline of Norway where a night in a traditional Norwegian hut finds fjords stealing the show as well as opening up access to the captivating cascades of Kjelsfossen Waterfall.

Scandi style is all about keeping things simple which is why this 22 day tour has adopted a minimalist approach to travel. Public transport provides an efficient and safe passage from one country to the next with chances to meet local folk sure to resonate with travellers looking to practise their languages.

Sharing experiences, learning about what you're seeing and making new friends is part and parcel of small guided group travel. This super Scandi tour is absolutely no different. From sauerkraut and sausages to fish markets and pastries, this is your chance to experience Scandinavia, with newfound pals, one delicious day at a time.

Please note: from 2019 the itinerary below will change to start in Copenhagen before continuing to Gothenburg by way of Malmo. This allows for a visit to Vrango Island before taking up the itinerary as per below. Additional features in 2019 will also include a guided tour of Copenhagen's Freetown Christiania as well as the bike ride as featured below. The trip will then become 21 days instead of 22.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Scandinavia small group tour

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

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 donít 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.
