Sweden has a varied climate, with the north experiencing colder conditions than the south. The country has a temperate climate overall, but winters in the northern regions are significantly colder. Summers in Sweden are generally mild to warm, with temperatures ranging from 20°C to 25°C. The coastal areas experience more maritime influences, while inland regions have a more continental climate. Sweden also has distinct seasons, with beautiful autumn foliage and snowy winters.

Norway's climate varies from region to region due to its long coastline and mountainous terrain. Coastal areas experience milder winters and cooler summers due to the warming effect of the Gulf Stream. Inland regions have colder winters with more snowfall, and summers tend to be mild. The western coast receives high rainfall throughout the year, while the eastern regions are drier. Norway's fjords and mountains contribute to dramatic weather patterns and stunning landscapes.

Denmark has a temperate maritime climate, influenced by the surrounding seas. Winters in Denmark are mild, with temperatures averaging around freezing point. Summers are generally cool to mild, with average temperatures ranging from 15°C to 20°C. The country experiences moderate rainfall throughout the year, but precipitation is evenly distributed. Danish weather can be changeable, with a mix of sunny, rainy, and cloudy days. The coastal areas enjoy the influence of the Baltic and North Sea, creating a pleasant seaside atmosphere.

On-Tour Luggage & Carry-On Bag Size Limits

Luggage: Each guest traveling may bring one suitcase no larger than 30” x 18” x 10" and weighing no more than 50 lb

Carry-On Bag: *Restricted to one piece per person, not to exceed 12” x 11” x 6”

  • *Please note: A "carry-on bag" on a tour coach is not the same as a "carry-on" for a flight. Because our coaches have large windows to enjoy the view, there is minimal space to store large items securely overhead or under the seats. A "carry-on bag" may be a soft-sided daypack, purse, backpack, tote bag, or the like. Because we value our guests' safety, small rolling suitcases or bags with telescopic handles are not permitted. In order to guarantee a smooth trip, guests are not permitted to store an additional "carry-on" bag beneath the coach with the luggage. 

So your driver and any hotel porters can safely lift and transport your suitcase throughout your vacation, we strongly recommend that you test the weight of your baggage prior to travel. You should be able to lift and comfortably transport it for short distances. 

Baggage allowances vary from airline to airline, and you should check with your chosen carrier for details prior to travel.

Packing Tips for Your Tour

Packing for a guided tour will vary depending on the duration of the trip, the time of year, and the activities planned. Here is a general packing list to help you get started:

Passport and Travel Documents: Ensure you have your passport, travel insurance, and any necessary travel documents.


  • Comfortable walking shoes: Cobblestone streets and uneven terrain require comfortable footwear.
  • Lightweight, breathable clothing: Pack clothes suitable for the season. Bring a mix of short-sleeved tops, lightweight pants or skirts, and a few long-sleeved options for cooler evenings for the summer months, and long-sleeved and heavier layers for early Spring, Fall, and Winter.
  • Layers: It's advisable to bring a light jacket or sweater and a scarf for layering, especially in Spring or Fall.
  • Nice evening wear: You may wish to wear a dressier outfit if you plan on dining in an elegant restaurant, for example. Smart-casual clothes are usually acceptable for all included daytime and evening activities throughout your tour.
  • Rain Gear: Depending on the season and the countries you're visiting, it's a good idea to pack a compact rain jacket or umbrella.

Sun Protection:

  • Hat, sunglasses, UV-protective clothing.
  • Sunscreen with high SPF. If you're visiting any coastal areas, bring reef-safe sunscreen formulated without harmful chemicals known to be damaging to coral reefs and marine life. Traditional sunscreens often contain ingredients like oxybenzone and octinoxate, which have been found to contribute to coral bleaching and negatively impact marine ecosystems. Look for sunscreens with certifications such as "Reef Safe," "Coral Safe," or "Ocean-Friendly" to ensure they are environmentally friendly.

Medications and First Aid:

  • Any prescription medications you need. (See more below under Health & Wellness)
  • Basic first aid kit with adhesive bandages, antiseptic wipes, pain relievers, etc.


  • Travel-sized toiletries, including shampoo, conditioner, soap, and toothpaste.
  • Travel towel (quick-drying and compact).
  • Hand sanitizer and wet wipes.
  • A washcloth and carry bag (often not available in hotels abroad).


  • A camera: You’re traveling to see extraordinary scenery and sites. So that you don't miss a single moment, bring a trustworthy camera. Check out our travel photography tips for capturing the best photos of your trips. If you feel comfortable, you can also try the camera on your phone. However, if you want to zoom in or capture moving objects, a camera might be your best bet.
  • Mobile phone.
  • Chargers for each electronic you bring.
  • Travel adapter and/or voltage converter
  • Portable power bank for charging devices on the go.
  • Small travel hair dryer (make sure you have the correct converter and adapter).


  • A travel-friendly daypack or bag to carry your essentials during excursions.
  • Insect repellent.
  • Reusable water bottle. At GET, we’re all about caring for our planet, and with that in mind, we always recommend that you pack a reusable water bottle for your trip. Bringing your own reusable water bottle or asking for tap water at restaurants means you can make a difference by reducing your vacation plastic waste.
  • A small travel alarm.
  • A travel iron if you like your clothes to be pressed.
  • A travel pillow.


  • Scarf or shawl for visiting religious sites or to cover up in conservative areas.
  • Light sleepwear.
  • A new, blank journal to document your trip. Don't know your travel journal style? Find out here!
  • Ziplock bags (storing snacks, toiletries, and keeping things organized).

Remember to pack light and versatile items that can be mixed and matched for different outfits. Laundry facilities are often available, or you can have your clothes laundered at hotels during your trip. It's also a good idea to pack a small bag or backpack to bring on the coach for day trips and excursions, leaving your larger luggage at the hotel.


American appliances run on 110-120 volts at 60 Hz, while European appliances run on 220-230 volts at 50 Hz.

As a result, American appliances designed for use in the United States (typically 120 volts at 60 Hz) may not be directly compatible with the higher voltage used in European countries. Plugging a 120-volt appliance into a 220-240-volt outlet without the appropriate voltage converter or transformer can cause damage to the appliance or pose safety risks.

If you plan to bring American appliances to Europe, you will need a voltage converter or transformer to change the voltage to 220-240 volts from 110 volts. Additionally, you will likely need a plug adapter to fit the American-style plug into the European power outlets. All of Europe operates on the same two round-pronged outlets (Type C).

It's important to note that not all appliances are compatible with voltage converters, so it's essential to check the labels or user manuals of your devices before using them with a voltage converter. Some electronic devices, such as laptops, smartphones, and camera chargers, are dual voltage and can support 120V and 220-240V, so they may not require a voltage converter, but a plug adapter will still be necessary.

To avoid any issues with electrical compatibility during your travels, consider purchasing appliances specifically designed for the voltage used in the region you'll be visiting or use appropriate voltage converters and plug adapters to ensure the safe operation of your American appliances in Europe.

We recommend purchasing an adapter with a voltage converter so you can pack less. And to pick up any necessary adapters or converters for your electronic devices before departing on your guided tour and bringing them with you.

Hair Dryers in Your Hotel

Hair dryers are common accessories in hotels. Should you want to bring your own, though, you will need to bring an adapter and voltage converter or make sure it is dual voltage by checking the label for INPUT AC 120V - 240V or a switch that can be set to 125V or 250V. Many devices have this feature, so it's worth checking before you travel. If you need a hair dryer during your trip but can't find one in your hotel room, you can inquire with the hotel staff. Many hotels will be able to provide a hair dryer upon request, either at the front desk or through housekeeping.

Air Conditioning

Air conditioning is commonly available in European hotels, restaurants, and public spaces, especially in major cities and tourist areas, but it is worth noting that the settings will differ from what you are used to in the USA.

However, it's important to note that not all accommodations or historic buildings may have air conditioning, particularly in more traditional or rural settings. Most hotels in Europe can provide a portable fan for additional room cooling if requested. Your Travel Director will be on hand to assist you throughout your trip.

Traveling by coach

Our modern air-conditioned coaches have been selected with your comfort in mind. Your Travel Director will familiarize you with all the onboard features, including a washroom fitted for your convenience and comfort. Regular stops are made to stretch your legs, take refreshments, fill up your water bottles, and use the facilities.

Airport transfers

Airport transfers to and from the airport on the first and last days of your tour are complimentary only if you are traveling on a tour operated by Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, or Luxury Gold, and your flight times coincide with the shuttle-coach transfer timings. Learn more about Airport Transfers here.

To enable you to personalize your tour experience, you will find a number of Optional Experiences designed to complement the itinerary. These are designed to offer a deeper insight into the culture and character of the areas to be visited and provide some wonderful highlights to your travels. The optional program is designed to let you experience more of what interests you and to get the most from your vacation without replacing or overlapping with anything included in an itinerary.

The majority of Optional Experiences will be offered to you by your Travel Director at the beginning of your trip. Some may be subject to change, depending on the time you are traveling or local circumstances, including weather and days of the week. Your Travel Director will provide further information.

Usually, most Optional Experiences will be priced in the local currency, but please read through the details of individual optional experiences for specific information. Exact payment options will be advised locally by your Travel Director/Local Representative for each Optional Experience, but in many cases, cash, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express are all accepted.

It is recommended to have travel insurance that covers medical expenses while abroad.

In order to ensure a healthy and enjoyable trip, we strongly suggest that you pack a plentiful supply of any medication you may need while on vacation. Here’s what you need to know about traveling with medications.

Prior to traveling, please notify GET of any disability requiring special assistance or any specific dietary needs that you may have, and we will strive to accommodate these.

It's essential to ensure that your routine vaccinations are up-to-date before traveling to any destination. Routine vaccinations may include vaccinations for measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, and influenza.

When traveling with GET, baggage handling at hotels, service charges, and tips for hotel wait staff (for included meals) will all be taken care of by your Travel Director. There are, however, a few instances where individual tipping is welcome.

Local Specialists

It is customary to show appreciation for the insights, stories, and know-how shared with you by the Local Specialists, and we suggest a gratuity equivalent to $1.00-$2.00 USD per person per half day.

Your Coach Driver and Travel Director

The trip cost does not include gratuities for your Travel Director and Driver. At the end of your trip, you may express appreciation to your Travel Director and Driver for their excellent service and the personal attention you received. Gratuities are given at the discretion of each guest, and a suggested amount per person/per day is listed in your travel documents.

For your convenience and ease, there is an option to pre-pay gratuities for the Travel Director and Driver at the time of booking.

Hotel services

It is customary to tip hotel staff for room service delivery if the charge has not already been added to the bill. Where ice machines are not available, and you receive ice from the bar, a small tip to the bartender is always appreciated.

We were put on flights that forced us to pay for our own transportation to and from the airports
There was no Wi-Fi on the bus for a week because they didn’t have a SIM card that matched the system. They made people pay for an extra excursion they didn’t want togoon.

Initial travel specialist was very good but he left the company. Right before the trip, another contact person reached out and provided email info but when I contacted him for a specific question, I never received a call back from him.
Wonderful locations, hotels and optional experiences. Excellent travel director who was very knowledgeable about each of the countries.

In general, we were very pleased with all the arrangements and the Insight Tour we were booked on was great. After a couple of discussions, GET's airline section found a great combo of some time-saving flights at excellent prices to get us to Europe and back. Our primary GET representative handled that well, but he was pokey in responding to some emails and calls we had placed to him along the way. Nonetheless, GET & Insight will be our first stop for future trips.
Our tour director, Chad Hartin, was exceptional and everyone on the tour agreed -- he was informative, engaging and made sure everyone had a good time. The itinerary was most interesting and Insight had planned good destinations and stops. The bus was very comfortable and our driver Arpad did a great job of moving us around. This was our first Insight tour, but some veterans of many previous tours said ALL of their Insight tour directors were first-rate. It's good to know that there might be others like Chad on future tours. We'll be back...

Tour guide told to many personal stories...needed better options for dinners and lunch. Not 7-elevens. Certainly not what we considered a premium tour.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for your honest feedback. We appreciate you letting us know about your experience with the Travel Director and the meals. Both of these items have been forwarded to management for immediate review.

They were responsive to my questions. The Insight Tour Director was excellent; very knowledgeable & personable. The driver was also excellent; very professional.
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.

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.
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.

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!

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!
