Stunning Scandinavia and the Fjords

July 9, 2023 to July 23, 2023

Join Fox World travel as we wander through the storybook beauty and colorful history of Scandinavia. On this Scandinavian trip, you’ll see the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen come to life, hop aboard one of Europe’s most exciting train journeys and learn about farm life near Bergen. Revel in outstanding Scandinavian scenery as you cruise the glassy fjords and ride the Flåm Railway. In the cities, soak up the seafaring history and lively cultural scene. The beauty and majesty of Denmark, Sweden and Norway are yours to enjoy!

Your journey begins with an overnight flight from Chicago O’Hare to Copenhagen, Denmark.

Welcome to Copenhagen - the enchanting Danish capital that inspired Hans Christian Andersen to share tales of mermaids, queens and ugly ducklings with the world. Your group is met and transferred from the airport. Spend the day embracing its quintessential hygge found throughout its charming streets before enjoying a late afternoon orientation drive and Welcome Dinner with your Travel Director and travel companions.

This evening enjoy an hour-long cruise along the canals and experience stunning views of the city from the harbor. We'll then visit the fairy-tale village of Dragor, with its thatched cottages and pretty working harbor.
