Tailored tours in Scandinavia are getting more and more popular among an increasing number of tourists. The reasons for that are clear: the tour is tailored up to you, with your wishes being considered, the service is not expensive, and you can travel at a pace and see the attractions that exactly you want.
And while you can include literally any attraction or place to your custom tour, there are certain cities, places, attractions and activities that are frequently added to the tailored tours, upon our clients’ wishes. Here, we will provide a list of such places and, perhaps, give you an idea of what you might wish to add to your custom tour:
Oslo. The Norwegian capital is currently a booming tourist destination in Europe, and not surprisingly. Oslo appeals to everyone: art fanciers and passionate history fans, avid adventurers and dedicated sports people, museum trotters and fervent foodies. Basically, there is no reason why one shouldn’t add Oslo to the custom tours in Scandinavia. Arguably, it is one of the best cities to visit in this region.
Stockholm. Sweden’s royal capital is a captivating, pompous city – you can simply walk through the city’s streets and enjoy its stunning architecture. Yet, it is also worth to mention that over 100 museums had mushroomed in the city: you can visit the open-air Skansen museum, discover the history of the famous ABBA band, or lose your speech while marveling at the perfectly preserved Vasa ship. If you are planning a multi-country custom tour, adding Stockholm would be a great idea.
Copenhagen. The Danish capital – though, the Swedes and Norwegians wouldn’t agree – is often hailed as the Capital of Northern Europe. You can easily combine a visit to this city with a visit to Malmö, Sweden, which is located just on the opposite side of Øresund strait.
Tromsø. The largest city of northern Norway is a place where you can experience a number of exciting, fun winter activities. Also, this is a city from which many aurora borealis safaris start – this is a great reason to add it to the custom tours in Scandinavia. All in all, consider adding Tromsø to your tailored tour.
Pulpit Rock. Located just within a few hours from Stavanger, the oil capital of Norway, this unassuming rock offers stunning views over Lysefjord. The hike itself is ridiculously easy and even the most inexperienced trekkers will encounter zero problems in getting to the Pulpit Rock. The entire hike is unlike to take more than 3 or 4 hours, so you can surely consider adding this hike to your custom tour in Scandinavia.
Trolltunga. Just a decade ago, many people haven’t even heard of this place. Today, however, this outstanding rock attracts more than 100,000 visitors every year. The hike itself is pretty strenuous and requires you to be in a good physical form. But you can always ask our experts about whether it is worth adding this hike to your custom tour in Norway.
Bergen. Norway’s second-largest city is a magnet for tourists. Its famous Bryggen, a series of picturesque houses dating back to the times of the Hanseatic league, is, perhaps, the city’s most famous attraction. If you include this city to your custom tour in Scandinavia, don’t forget to look at the city from the top, from the neighboring mount of Fløyen.
Nærøyfjord. Cruise this stunning fjord, a part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list, and enjoy the true beauty of the Norwegian nature. Regardless whether this will be a part of the Norway In A Nutshell tour or a standalone cruise, this is one of the best activities to do in Norway.
Lofoten Islands. This beautiful Norwegian archipelago can boast almost pristine nature, offering countless opportunities for travel and exploration. There are many particular activities you might undertake, including whale safari, surfing, cycling, trekking, fishing, and much more. If this suits your itinerary, you may consider adding Lofoten Islands to the list of your preferences in the tailored tour.
