  • 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. Here are the currencies used by country:

    Sweden – Swedish Krona

    Norway – Norwegian Krone

    Denmark – Danish Kroner

    Finland – Euro

    Iceland – Icelandic Krona

    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 24 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 : They were responsive to my questions. The Insight Tour Director was excellent; very knowledgeable & personable. The driver was also excellent; very professional.
Vacation : Overall very well done, but on the negative side we were unable to stay in Bergen (one of the highlights) due to a race that had been planned for over a year. Insight should have been aware and either booked our hotel earlier or at least told us before leaving on trip so that we had option of taking an earlier trip. Some of the bus trips were all day & it would have been better if they could have been broken up even if that meant more days & higher cost.
Thursday, September 7, 2017
Service rating : From the 1st contact with David I felt like he had a genuine desire to help me make this an great experience. He gave excellent advice and was very helpful throughout the process.
Vacation : The itinerary was well thought out. It was comprehensive but fast moving and quite seamless. There was a good mix of history, culture, architectural jewels, and the present day with gorgeous scenery almost around every corner. Amanda showed great knowledge and enthusiasm which helped our group to have a wonderful time. She was very professional and adjusted schedules well when outside factors caused timing issues.
Sunday, September 3, 2017
Service rating : Good guide
Vacation : Pretty area; too much bus drive
Monday, August 28, 2017
Service rating : We dealt with David at GET. He was very helpful an easy to deal with. We called a couple of times from when we booked to the actual departure date and he was always more than willing to help us out. The tour was truly spectacular. Our paperwork came as promised and was complete. Also, he made sure during the booking process that we received all of the discounts that were available to us. I would use GET again for another adventure.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for your review - we're very lucky to have David with us at GET and we're glad he made your vacation stress-free. We hope you had a wonderful time in Scandinavia and we look forward to helping you plan your next adventure! 
Monday, August 28, 2017
Vacation : We went on a really fun and active tour of Scandinavia. The tour director, bus driver, sites and optional tours were all top notch. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see this beautiful region of the world - Scandinavia!
Friday, August 11, 2017
Service rating : This was one of the most beautiful tours we have ever taken. The scenery was spectacular, the tour director was fabulous, and the driver was incredibly skilled. The lovely hotels were in the center of town, so it was easy to get around on our own when we wanted to. It was an active tour but not too much for the older travelers in our group.
Vacation : Excellent price for the tour we received. Lovely hotels. Amazing scenery. one of the best tours we have taken out of 7 with GET.
Friday, August 11, 2017
Service rating : Excellent trip to Scandinavia with your sister company, Insight. Great tour director, local guides, driver, and logistics. Certainly up to the usual standard we've grown to expect from Grand European and its ancillary companies.
Vacation : See previous comments, please.
Friday, August 4, 2017
Service rating : The person who was helping us was sometimes very rude and she was only speaking about the extra things. It was confusin to know what was included and what was not. Even, sometimes she said, about things are included,,,,,,,,,,,,,," this is free " looking it was a favor from her.
Response from Grand European Travel:
We are sorry to hear that your booking process was confusing.  We to strive to provide clear and helpful information when you book with us.  There is a lot of information being talked about and it is important that our guests understand all aspects of their trip. Please accept our sincere apologies for this shortcoming.
Friday, August 4, 2017
Vacation : Wrote already, and nothing new.
Monday, July 10, 2017
Service rating : They made booking the trip easy. The only negative was the number of nights in some cities was misleading. Two nights when you arrive there late in the evening means only ONE day.
Vacation : Good guide and good driver, but a guided tour of a nave church should be included in every Norway trip.

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