Fly with us and experience the rugged beauty of Norway’s west coast,
traveling 6 days on the MS Vesterålen~Norway’s Hurtigruten Coastal Voyage~from Bergen to Kirkenes.... explore the Hanseatic town of Bergen… beautiful and historic Stockholm... idyllic Dalarna… and much more!
Led by Diane and Ted Noble, you will travel to some of the foremost sights Scandinavia can offer.
After arriving in Bergen, we will stay overnight and have the next day to explore the wharf area, Bryggen, of this Hanseatic city before we board the MS Vesterålen for six nights, as we glide past the dramatic west coast of Norway. Often called “the world’s most beautiful voyage” we will get to know the real Norway as we visit tiny fishing villages and historic cities.
Autumn is a tranquil time on the Hurtigruten; you have time to enjoy the bright colors, the fresh air and the beautiful scenery. Experience nature’s bounty of Fall delicacies, and music to touch both your heart and soul.... from Grieg to Sami-inspired music.
After disembarking in Kirkenes and flying to Stockholm we will spend time experiencing this beautiful “Venice of the North”. Rich in history and magnificent architecture, Stockholm is filled with historical sights and museums, quaint shops and cobbled streets for us to explore.
The next days we will spend in the ‘heart’ of Sweden… Dalarna… staying in the hamlet of Tällberg, where the vision of what you’ve dreamed Sweden must be like, comes to life. We will visit Nusnäs for Dala horses, Carl Larsson’s home in Sundborn, Anders Zorn’s home in Mora, Swedish artisans to see beautiful Swedish handcraft… and so much more!
Back in the Stockholm area for our last afternoon and evening, we will visit Sigtuna, Sweden’s first town… ”where Sweden begins”. Time to explore this historic village and to have coffee at “Tant Brun’s” before we have our “last night in Sweden” dinner and party in the countryside north of Stockholm, overlooking Lake Mälaren… where we are warmly welcomed to the home of Marita and Lasse Haglund, friends of Ted and Diane.
Our personal journeys have led us to Scandinavia 30+ times… summer and winter… since 1982. We have traveled from Malmö in the south to Kiruna above the Arctic Circle… from Göteborg to Stockholm… as well as to the special ‘out of the way’ places in between. On the main roads as well as the narrow country roads, our travels and searches have resulted in finding historic, quaint, countryside and romantic type accommodations and experiences. Intentionally, we limit our tours to 14 people maximum. This smaller size allows for more personal attention and provides experiences that you may not have with larger groups.
