  • U.S. citizens traveling to Scandinavian countries – Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland –must have a current passport valid for six months beyond the conclusion of their trip. You can find information on how to apply for a passport here, and how to renew a passport here. No visa is required for U.S. citizens entering Scandinavia.

  • Scandinavian countries do not share a common currency. Sweden uses the Swedish Krona, Norway uses the Norwegian Krone and Denmark uses the Danish Kroner.  While it’s a good idea to have some money on you while you travel, you’ll usually find better exchange rates in your destination.  The most convenient way to obtain cash is to use your ATM card at local banks in the country you’re visiting. We recommend you also bring a valid credit card for purchases while you are traveling.  It is important that you inform your financial institutions of your travel plans before you leave home so they don’t flag your purchases as potentially fraudulent charges.

  • Scandinavian cuisine is rich and hearty.  Try a traditional ‘smørgasbord’ with a selection of meat, fish, salads, hot dishes, puddings and cheeses. Sample dishes prepared with a variety of seafood including smoked salmon, cod, herring, sardines and mackerel. Popular meats include reindeer, lamb and fowl. Coffee and milk are very popular, along with lager. Aquavit is the local spirit, and is usually served chilled. Wines and other spirits are imported products and are very expensive.

  • We suggest bringing a variety of clothing items that can be layered to save space in your suitcase and give you more options for how to dress. For more helpful information please refer to our Packing Tips & Packing List.

  • When dining out it is appropriate to leave 5-10 percent gratuity if a service charge has not already been added to your bill.

    At the end of your guided vacation, it’s customary to offer your motor coach driver and Travel Director a gratuity.  We recommend the equivalent of €3.00 per person/per day for your driver and €5.00 per person/per day for your Travel Director.  Recommended gratuity for a Local Host and Local Specialist is 1-2 euros per person, paid at the conclusion of each guided visit.  A convenient option is to prepay your tips before your departure.

  • Baggage on our trips is restricted to one large suitcase per person with dimensions not exceeding 30x19x10 inches and a maximum weight of 50 pounds. You are also permitted one piece of hand luggage, which should be small enough to fit under your coach seat or on the small overhead shelf compartment. Please note that luggage with an adjustable handle and wheels will not fit in the overhead compartment of the coach. Hotel porterage is included in your vacation.

  • You will need to be comfortable on your feet, walking and standing for up to three hours in various weather conditions.  All of our vacations involve walking, often on cobblestone and uneven surfaces in historic city centers.  In order to get the most out of your vacation you need to be able to comfortably walk 1-3 miles unassisted in one day, be in good condition and be able to keep pace with the group. 

    If you need any medications, it is important that you bring enough to last you the whole trip and keep them in your carry-on bag while you travel.

  • We highly recommend our optional Travel Protection Plan, which allows you to cancel for any reason up to 48 hours before departure. The plan also includes trip interruption, baggage loss or delay, and medical and emergency assistance. Click here for a summary of coverage details, terms and conditions.

Service rating : I think the representative that we talked to was pleasant and easy to deal with. I enjoyed talking with the same representative to help plan each trip.
Vacation : This was a Trafalgar trip and we hadn't been on one of their trips in quite a while. I believe that the trip tried to cover too much ground in too short of a period of time. We spent a LOT of time on the bus traveling from place to place. I know that Norway is spread out and the only way to see it is to drive, so don't try to cover as much and see more at each place. Also, most of these bus trips include several "optional" tours that you have to pay for on the trip, if you want to take them. Grand European tours used to put a link on their website so you could see what the optional tours were ahead of time and plan for them. I haven't been seeing these listed lately online. We got our travel documents about 1 week before the trip that included a list of hotels, the detailed itinerary, and the list of the optional tours. If anybody on this trip had limited funds, they wouldn't have had time to plan for this additional expensive, which cost a bit over $1,100 (U.S.), if you went on them all. Let me say, if you didn't spend the money for optional tours, your experience would have been very limited. In many cases, a city tour would have been about it. At least one of the city tours was on a bus--- not walking. That was a total waste. You can't even see the tops of the buildings on your own side of the bus, let alone what is on the other side. Try to take a picture and the bus is already by it. :( There were 48 people on our tour, so the bus was FULL. The seats aren't very roomy and spending so much time on the bus made for a very long day. The hotels that they used were not the quality that we have been used to... another cost saving measure by Trafalgar?? The majority of them didn't even have room safes, even if we were spending 2 nights there. We had no safe ! There were mostly no amenities in the rooms and many didn't even have facial tissue. We stayed at one Scandic hotel for 2 nights that had included dinners both nights. We had the EXACT SAME dinner both nights. Now come on, I'm pretty sure that the chef could make something else, so that means that Trafalgar paid for them to make the same dinner twice! The rooms were quite small, some had showers that were barely as wide as I am and I am not a larger than average woman. In one bathroom, I was sitting on the toilet to dry my hair because they had one of those hair dryers that are attached to the wall and you have to hold the button in the entire time to make it work. I was reading a book to help pass the time, when the book dropped. I bent over to pick it up and when I sat back up, I actually hit my head on the sink - it was that narrow. Not sure if it is a standard in Scandinavian hotels or not, but we had 1" to 2" mattress toppers on the beds. What they forgot was the MATTRESS. These toppers just flattened out when you sat on them and most were over the springs! This will be our LAST Trafalgar tour. A lot of my friends have laughed and laughed over this trip and our experiences.

Vacation : We really didn't need any money in kronas for each country as we could use our credit card for any purchase. They should not tell us we HAVE to have some. Loved the Flam RR experience.

Service rating : The intinerary was a bit ambitious and I would have rather liked to spend more time in some of the towns (Bergen,Oslo, Gierranger, Stockholm) and I thought Lillihammer could have been dropped. The Radisson hotels were very nice but some of the Scandic hotels were less than acceptable - especially the last 2 nites in Sweden which kind of left a cloud on the trip. The room was so small I had to sit on the bed and lean forward to see a mirror to do my hair. Had to put my suitcase on the floor. There was no electrical outlet in the "bathroom". The bathroom was so tiny (MAYBE 5x5) that doing anything in there was near impossible. In the restaurant in Oslo, which was probably meant to be "quaint", we were put into a basement room that was small (did not fit the entire group), warm and the air conditioner was leaking and they had to reposition people and lay down pans to catch the dripping water. The food at the hotels was OK. Overall the accommodations were average to unacceptable.Certainly not 4 or 5 star hotels (except for Radisson). There was a Radisson in Stockholm, why did we not stay there?
Vacation : Our guide Jeffrey was very pleasant and knowledgeable of the areas that we visited. I enjoyed him. Our drive, Attilla, was an exemplary and cautious driver. I felt comfortable as he drove us through winding, hairpin curves. I enjoyed most of the towns we visited and explored. This is the first bus trip I have taken and the unpacking, packing, living out of a suitcase was not the best part of my trip.

Optional Experiences are subject to change. Your Travel Director will supply you with a final list of Optional Experiences available on your trip. Optional Experiences cannot be booked online; they can be purchased during your trip through your Travel Director.
