DAY 2 - Start Berlin/Copenhagen
Berlin
Good morning globe-roamers and welcome to 12-days of memory-making magic. After a bit of a mingle we'll be straight out of Berlin heading for Copenhagen where the rest of our squad awaits.
Copenhagen
By the afternoon, we'll be united in Denmark and getting into the spirit of our imminent adventure. We've got all day tomorrow to suss out the city, so today can stay reserved for Contiki hangs if you're feeling social.
Stay
A&O Hostel Norrebro (or similar)
DAY 3 - 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.

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).

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.

These wooden churches are about as medieval as they come and religious or not, this cute little spot (and town) will delight!

You only have to look to Finland's quirky array of annual festivals - Wife Carrying World Championships? - to understand that this place has character.

The scenery was beautiful, the details were all taken care of, and we had plenty of opportunities to explore the surroundings and strike up friendships. The accommodations were quite good, but each new hostel brought questions - would the shower have a curtain, or even a way to keep the water inside the bathroom? Would the mattress and pillows be comfy? In all honestly, it was never at any point a deal breaker or a major inconvenience for me. It was just part of the adventure. But the gorgeous sights and the friends I made more than make up for any shortcomings the tour might have had. If you have the means, I highly recommend taking this tour.

What better way to see the Nordic Countries?! The Hostels were great, and the people were amazing!! Being able to travel to an area that is so expensive, and do all that I got to do is wonderful!! These were bucket list places that I've been wanting to see forever, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to travel! Definitely, worth every penny!!

The sights were great. Only downsides . Im not a big fan of the hostels personally But i was aware that i would be mostly hostels so i canot complain about that. And Helsinki was a bit rushed, like were 2 or 3 quick foto stops and after that Good luck our tour guide did her best to tell us were everything was and organized a group dinner so extra point's for her on that
