Scandinavia Tours

Composed of the Northern European countries of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Iceland, Scandinavia is a remarkable place known for its natural beauty, history, and culture. At Road Scholar, our Scandinavia tours take you to unique landmarks and attractions in each country. From the Northern Lights to historic castles, Scandinavia travel allows you to understand the connection between geography and culture and what makes this region one of the happiest places on Earth.

 

Featured Landmarks on Scandinavia Tours

Europe is home to a number of countries, each rich in its own culture and traditions. In Northern Europe, you can visit the Scandinavian region on one of our remarkable Scandinavian tours, where you can explore iconic landmarks to better understand each country’s history. See what you can discover on our Scandinavia guided tours below:

  • Vasa Ship: Located in Djurgården, Sweden, the Vasa Ship is a 17th-century warship that sank in 1628 and was salvaged and restored in 1961. On our senior tours of Scandinavia, you can explore the Vasa Museum to view the remarkably well-preserved ship to understand naval warfare and maritime history during the 17th century.
  • Rosenborg Castle: The Rosenborg Castle, located in Copenhagen, Denmark, is a Renaissance castle built in the early 17th century as the royal residence of King Christian IV. Tours of the Rosenborg Castle allow you to view gems like the Danish crown jewels and regalia, like the crown, orb, and scepter that belonged to Danish monarchs.
  • Kronborg Castle: Another castle you can visit on our Scandinavia tours is Kronborg Castle in Helsingør, Denmark. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a significant Renaissance fortress known for being the setting of Shakespeare’s play, “Hamlet.” This castle played a vital role in controlling the entrance to the Baltic Sea by collecting tolls from ships trying to pass.
  • Drottningholm Palace: Drottningholm Palace serves as the private residence of the Swedish royal family and is located on Lovön Island in Lake Mälaren near Stockholm. Another UNESCO World Heritage Site, Drottningholm Palace is known for its well-preserved gardens, 17th-century architecture, and Chinese Pavilion. 
  • Fjords: The Norwegian Fjords are deep, glacially carved inlets known for their steep cliffs and sweeping landscapes. Norway is home to a number of famous fjords, including Geirangerfjord, Nærøyfjord, and Sognefjord. Our Scandinavian tours to the Norwegian fjords offer a wide variety of outdoor activities, including boat tours, hiking, and more. 

At Road Scholar, our Scandinavia guided tours offer an excellent opportunity to understand the culture and history of Northern Europe. You can also explore our Western European tours and Eastern European tours for further discovery opportunities.
