Copenhagen is the capital of the “Happiest Nation in the World,” shelters the planet’s most bicycle-crazed residents and claims author Hans Christian Andersen and “The Little Mermaid.” Stockholm is home to the 17th-century “Vasa” warship, 70 miles of kaleidoscopic art in a subway system called Europe’s most beautiful, and Alfred Nobel, founder of the prestigious prize. Join us in Denmark and Sweden on a discovery of these Scandinavian sister capitals, from vibrant neighborhoods and nautical history to modern politics, gleaning insight from local experts while enjoying plenty of time for adventures on your own.
