DAY 1 - Start Copenhagen


Good morning globe-roamers and welcome to the colourful city of Copenhagen. After a bit of a mingle with the new squad we'll enjoy an included dinner before heading off on a sightseeing tour of this very cool capital - an artwork of locals on bicycles, Danish pastries in cute café windows & Renaissance architecture. Gaze at the waterways, admire the elegant locals with their Scandi Chic fashion, and watch the bridges come to life with bicycle lights. After getting acquainted with the local sights, we'll look forward to our full day in the city tomorrow.

DAY 2 - Copenhagen


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. We've got an optional bike tour for you this morning - but it's not just 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. Stand Up Paddleboarding is also up for grabs today if you want to stay active, before we head to Tivoli Gardens Water Park. Here you can enjoy the rides or just relax and enjoy the food.

DAY 3 - Copenhagen to Oslo


Next stop: Norway!


To the call of castles, fresh seafood, & pretty parks, we respond! After hopping on the Helsinger Ferry we'll arrive in Sweden (with a stop at Ikea Kellered - when in Rome and all that...). Then we'll head across the border to Oslo, checking in to the night's accommodation. This place is all about spectacular natural beauty, so we won't waste any time, taking a winding guided hike along the Arkerselva River.

DAY 4 - Oslo


Oslo, both the capital and biggest city of Norway, is a riverside metropolis back-dropped by mountains of greenery and filled with easy-going culture. We'll take a orientation tour today, with some optional active adventures to explore this afternoon. You could take a 'Viking Biking' cycling tour through the city, or head to the Oslo High Ropes Course. After a chance to explore Oslo's buzzing foodie scene, we have a free evening to check out the nightlife or just chill.

DAY 5 - Oslo to Voss


Though you'll feel like you know Norway inside out by now, you can't really grasp the country until you've witnessed its great open plains & small country towns...


Welcome to Voss, the adventure capital of Norway! We'll have plenty of adrenaline spiking adventures available to us in this place, and today you can get stuck in straight away with skydiving or rappelling down a waterfall, living our best action hero lives. After all of that excitement, a free afternoon to chill might be in order. You can also enjoy a different kind of chill today. We're surrounded by a spectacular lake with diving platforms, so take the polar plunge into the icy depths below if you're brave enough.

DAY 6 - Voss


The outdoor vibes don't end today, we'll be getting back to nature from sun up 'til sun down. Wild animals and spectacular scenery are on the cards so opt to take a guided hiking tour or some White Water Rafting if you're looking for something to quicken the pulse.

DAY 7 - Voss to Geiranger


Norwegian countryside and pretty waterfalls will highlight our journey to the 200 km long Sognefjord, a sight set to take your breath away.

Geiranger Fjord

After photo op stops at the Tvindefossen Waterfall and lunch at the Boyabreen Glacier, we'll continue our journey to Geiranger Fjord where we'll spend the night surrounded by some of mother nature's finest. On arrival we'll take a guided hike along the fjord, which will truly take the breath away, before enjoying included dinner at our accom. Another polar plunge is available for those wanting to wake up a bit...

DAY 8 - Geiranger to Lillehammer


There's no way we can drag you away from this place first thing this morning, even though we have a whole lot of adventure to fill the day. A morning cruise around Geiranger Fjord amongst cascading waterfalls should ease you into things.


The alpine ski resort of Lillehammer will appear in front of us shortly after our drive past old farms and unspoilt Norwegian countryside. Home of the 1994 Winter Olympics, you'll have the chance to live out your "Cool Runnings" dreams with an Olympic Bobsled Ride! Then it's time for a sunset hike, journeying to the spectacular viewpoints of Flaksjølihøgda. Sometimes this place feels like a different planet...

DAY 9 - Lillehammer to Dalarna


Rise and shine! More adventures await. Today we're crossing the border from Norway to Sweden, so keep an eye out for the famous Vasaloppet start line.


We'll let you enjoy the lake for a few hours and then we've got a special visit planned. Visiting a working Alaskan Husky Kennel, you'll meet some locals who explain how they train and look after their pack, before enjoying a BBQ dinner surrounded by spectacular vistas.
Want to experience more of the surroundings? Take a short hike to see where bears live and hibernate, with an unforgettable Swedish Bear Hike.

DAY 10 - Dalarna to Stockholm


Leaving Dalarna behind, and saying farewell to Sweden's national symbol, the orange Dala horse, we're headed to the capital today! Stockholm, here we come!


Arriving in Stockholm we have the option for a kayaking tour through the city. Then we'll have a chance to explore the culinary scene.

DAY 11 - Stockholm


Today we'll take a city tour where we'll have the chance to stroll the quaint medieval streets of Gamla Stan & try to catch the changing of the guard at the Royal Palace. Optionals today include the Vasa museum, or, if your adrenaline thirst still hasn't been quenched, a bit of jet boating. All that ground covered will earn you some Swedish salmon & maybe some vodka on the rocks for our last evening...

DAY 12 - Depart Stockholm


Our trip finishes after breakfast today but Scandinavia will live on in our memories for years to come. Swap contact details and start planning your next adventure!
