A Scandinavian adventure
Follow filmmaker and storyteller Jake Rich as he takes the ultimate Scandinavian adventure and goes on the hunt for "hygge".
Take a culinary bike tour
Copenhagen, Denmark | Day 2
62% of the locals in Copenhagen use bicycles to get to work or school, and you’ll soon learn that the best way to explore this colourful city is on two wheels. But this bike tour isn’t only about scenery - it also allows you to uncover Copenhagen’s delicious culinary scene, and from vibrant Christianshavn to the freetown of Christiania you’ll be served delicious regional eats as you uncover the city like a local.
Visit a historic theme park
Copenhagen, Denmark | Day 2
More than your everyday theme park, Tivoli is a historical treasure. Founded in 1843, it was often visited by Hans Christian Anderson and Walt Disney, the latter of whom was so inspired he went on to create Disneyworld. The gorgeous scenery, exotic architecture and delicious food set the scene for thrill-seeking rides, from the very modern Vertigo - sending you upside down at 110km/h - to the iconic wooden roller coaster hailing all the way back from 1914.
The perfectly preserved historical centre of Stockholm is as charming as it is colourful, with its cobblestone streets, royal architecture and gabled buildings. But there’s more to this city than its elegant good looks. A vibrant, future facing culture makes the city a fascinating fusion of contemporary and traditional Scandinavia.
Voss is most notable for its beautiful lake, not far from Norway’s famous fjords. There’s plenty of adventure to be found here, from bungee to white water rafting, but sometimes you’ve got to throw caution to the wind and take a leap of faith. Take a polar plunge with us into the icy lake and have a rejuvenating swim (before a hot shower and dinner, obviously).
Norway is famous for its deep blue fjords, which carve their way through wild vegetation, thundering waterfalls and snow-capped mountains. And Geiranger may just be its jewel in the crown, a UNESCO heritage site which is considered to be one of the most beautiful fjords in the world. Take a cruise along the sparkling waters and try to keep your jaw closed. The Bøyabreen glacier is a similarly unique sight to behold, where you can sit at panoramic windows as huge blocks of ice crash into the valley below.
Take a bobsled run
Lillehammer, Norway | Day 7
This bob and luge track - the only one in Scandinavia - also includes an enormous activity park with pulse-racing activities from roller tracks, bubble football and paintball in the summer to ski jumps, tobogganing and, of course, bobsleighing in the winter.
