Fjords, mountains and vibrant cities

If you have ever wanted to explore Scandinavia on a holiday, this inclusive itinerary is most definitely for you. The Nordic tour gives you a real taste of Finland and Sweden, providing you with a full day in both Stockholm and Helsinki to go sightseeing. With some of your time spent on a guided tour of each city, you can ensure that you don’t miss any of the highlights.
