Day 1 to 2: Copenhagen – The City of Design

Come and meet a jovial and convivial city full of alleyways lined with charming old houses. That said, Copenhagen is also a modern city where design is obvious in all its forms and featuring lively cafés and high-quality restaurants. Take a stroll down the famous pedestrianised street of Strøget and enjoy everything from high-end shopping to lively street artists and musicians. Or why not hire a bike and explore the city in true Danish style? Sights well worth seeing include the traditional Tivoli amusement park and the world-famous and popular “Little Mermaid” statue. And don’t forget to sample the very essence of all things Danish: the open Danish sandwich, or “smørrebrød” as it is known to the locals.

Day 2 to 3: Stockholm – The Capital of Scandinavia

Stockholm is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Built on fourteen islands and directly connected to an archipelago, it’s a city of contrasts and is often considered unique by visitors. It’s an international metropolis, modern and trendy, yet bursting with culture, traditions and a history that stretches back an entire millennium. With 19 roof-top bars in the city centre and more than a hundred White Guide restaurants, few cities can compete with Stockholm’s ability to offer a taste of modern urban life, history and wonderful countryside – all in the same day. Going through a rainy day or just feeling cultural? No problem. Stockholm plays host to a range of interesting museums, including the famous Vasa Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, ABBA The Museum and Fotografiska.

Day 4 to 5: Oslo – Big city life by a fjord

One of the richest cities in Europe and full of trendy restaurants nestling alongside historical buildings, the capital of Norway is located right on the edge of a fjord. While you’re here, we suggest enjoying a lovely lunch by the water at Aker Brygge, followed by a tram ride up to the trendy district of Grünerløkka for a stroll around all its cosy cafés, bars and small shops. The impressive Vigeland Sculpture Park, the wonderful view from the Holmenkollen ski jump arena and the new, architectonical Oslo Opera House are also all well worth a visit while you’re in this beautiful city.
