Tour Highlights

Copenhagen, Gothenburg & Stockholm

This is an excellent introduction to Sweden and its Scandinavian neighbour, Denmark. You begin in Copenhagen, admiring the landmarks of Denmark’s capital with a private tour and canal cruise. Then cross the iconic Oresund Bridge to Sweden and the old heart of Malmö. Continue by train to Gothenburg, with its leafy avenues, charming coffee shops and dashing blue trams. Finally, take the train to Stockholm, where you have two days to take in the sights of Sweden’s capital, including the Vasa Museum and the historic buildings of Gamla Stan.

Your local guide may take you to see the canal-side Gothenburg City Museum, which houses exhibits that reveal the city’s 400-year history; Gustav Adolfs square, named after the founder of Sweden and watched over by his statue; the nearby 18th-century German Church; and the port – a historically significant centre of trade.
