DAY 1 - Start Copenhagen

Copenhagen

Good afternoon globe-roamers and welcome to 12-days of memory-making magic. After a bit of a mingle with the new squad we'll getting into the spirit of our imminent adventures in Copenhagen. We've got all day tomorrow to suss out the city, so today can stay reserved for Contiki hangs if you're feeling social.

DAY 2 - Copenhagen

Copenhagen

Constantly named amongst the most livable cities in the world, Copenhagen is an artwork of locals on bicycles, Danish pastries in cute café windows, & Renaissance architecture. Being a bustling university town and home to the hippie hood of Freetown Christiania, nightlife and unique culture can be found at every turn.

DAY 3 - Copenhagen to Oslo

Copenhagen

Before you go bursting out of your travel clothes thanks to your new-found pastry dependency, we're bailing on Denmark. Next stop: Norway!

Oslo

To the call of castles, fresh seafood, & pretty parks, we respond! Today we're taking on Norway. We'll be surrounded by 200 bronze statues eating Krumkaker pastries before we can say "jeg elsker Norge!" (that's "I love Norway," folks).

DAY 4 - Oslo

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. Pottering around museums and pretty buildings will keep us busy by day, while taking a stroll through the city should keep you busy by night.

DAY 5 - Oslo to Voss via Hardangervidda

Oslo

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...

Hardangervidda Region

Before we arrive in our overnight hub, we'll coast through the rugged river and rock landscapes of Telemark and Hardangervidda regions, with nature worthy of an Instagram or two...

Voss

Tonight's stop, Voss is the adventure capital of Norway. We'll take the chilled out approach here, with a night of relaxing and getting to know the crew in our lakefront lodge, it's like waking up in a movie.

DAY 6 - Voss

Voss

The adventure capital of Norway is all ours to explore today! We know, we know, it can get a bit overwhelming: but if you're stumped for ideas, we recommended joining us on a guided hiking tour, soaking up all of that dramatic scenery and feeling zen as we explore winding hiking trails. Alternatively, if you're looking for something a bit more fast paced, you could try your hand at white water rafting. Breathless and giddy from the day's adventures, we'll regroup with dinner at one of the local restaurants that offer delicious and traditional Norwegian food.

DAY 7 - Voss to Geiranger via Sognefjord

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 keep that camera of yours charged to full.

Sognefjord

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

Geiranger

After lunch at Boyabreen glacier - which will see you pondering more rural life goals - we'll continue our journey to Geiranger Fjord where we'll spend the night surrounded by some of mother nature's finest.

DAY 8 - Geiranger to Lillehammer

Geiranger

We've got more spectacular natural beauty to check out today. First we'll take a cruise the stunning Geiranger Fjord, a UNESCO listed fairytale of a place with wild waterfalls, snow-capped peaks and vibrant green foliage. After managing to close our jaws again, we'll stop at the famous alpine ski resort of Lillehammer.

Lillehammer

Upon arrival we could take a stroll through the city or hop on the Lillehammer Olympic Track bobsleigh, Northern Europe's only artificially frozen bob. All done for the day? We've got more epic surprises tomorrow, so make sure to rest up.

DAY 9 - Lillehammer to Dalarna

Lillehammer

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.

Dalarna

A picture perfect land of fairytale forests, painted cottages and gorgeous rolling hills, Dalarna will take our breath away upon arrival. The centrepiece is the shimmering lake, so we'll let you enjoy the lake for a few hours (kayaking or maybe just a sauna, depending on your vibe) and then we've got a special visit to a working Alaskan Husky Kennel, where we'll meet some of the local very good boys. Want to experience more of the surroundings? Take a short hike to see where bears live and hibernate, with an optional Bear Hike. Just try not to wake one up.

DAY 10 - Dalarna to Stockholm

Dalarna

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!

Stockholm

Checking into our extremely stylish Generator hostel, why settle in for the night? Opt for a traditional meatball dinner or Fotografiska evening, setting us up ready for a day of adventure's in the capital tomorrow!

DAY 11 - Stockholm

Stockholm

Wander the quaint medieval streets of Gamla Stan & try to catch the changing of the guard at the Royal Palace. All that ground covered will earn you some Swedish salmon & an Absolut on the rocks.

DAY 12 - Depart Stockholm

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!
