You’ll enjoy an orientation drive of Copenhagen and guided sightseeing excursions of Oslo and Stockholm. Visit Lillehammer, site of the 1994 Winter Olympics, and take time for a photo stop at Sweden’s Gripsholm Castle, a fairytale castle built in 1537 and set in an enchanting rural setting on the way to Stockholm.
