Scandic Capitals

From grand royal palaces and scenic waterfronts to pretty open green spaces and plenty of fresh air, come and explore two of Scandinavia’s epic capitals on our new discovery holiday. With guided tours included in both cities there is still plenty of time to explore on our own and soak up the atmosphere in both of these gorgeous and uniquely Scandic cities.

Why Go to Scandic Capitals?

  • Two Scandinavian Capitals in one
  • Great café vibes
  • Discover the highlights on included guided tours
  • Sunshine Summer dates
  • Immerse yourself in fascinating museums

City of Islands - Copenhagen

Also known as Kongens village, the city is pleasingly crammed with street cafés, designer shops and some of the best restaurants in the world. Of course there are plenty of sites to gaze at, many of which we will spot on our included guided tour. This rich cultural city has much to offer so if you are not exploring the pretty waterfront or admiring the architecture, why not visit Frederiksborg Castle. Built by King Christian 4 in the 17th century, this palace is situated across three islets in Hillerød, north of Copenhagen. Following a devastating fire in the 19th Century, the castle was rebuilt by the owners of Carlsberg Breweries.

Mosey Around a Museum

Perhaps what makes Stockholm so special is its natural location as it is criss-crossed by vast open water and superb parks. Perhaps a visit to the famous Nobel Museum where we can learn more about the famous prize and its Laureates will appeal as with more than a hundred museums and attractions, there's something for everyone.

Out & About in Stockholm

Regardless of the time of year we visit our included guided tour helps us get our bearings. With shops, restaurants and most of the sights right on our doorstep, it's easy to get around, whether by foot or purchasing a Stockholm Card which offers free admission to many sights and attractions as well as free public transport. Take time to visit the amazing Vasa Museum; the world's only surviving 17th century ship, which sank in 100 feet of water on her maiden voyage, now beautifully preserved. The museum explains in wonderful detail how she was built, how and why she sunk and how she was lifted from the murky depths of Lake Mälaren.

Useful Information

Scandic Capitals

​Transfer Time
The transfer time from Stockholm Airport to your hotel is approximately 30 minutes.

More to Explore
There will be plenty for you to see and do during your own leisure time during the course of your holiday, full details of which will be provided at your Information Meeting by your Tour Leader with prices (depending on group size). Your Tour Leader will help arrange these for you and explain where you will need to go but may not necessarily accompany you.

A reasonable level of fitness/mobility is required as we include plenty of sightseeing/travelling, sometimes with early starts.

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below.

Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of £30.00 (or the equivalent in local currency). Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on.

Temperature (Average Daily Maximum ºC)
Stockholm 19°C Jun 21°C Jul

Copenhagen 18°C Jun 21°C Jul

Dress Code
Casual daytime light-weight “layers” are recommended. Comfortable shoes are a “must” for sightseeing. Smart, casual wear for the evenings. Dressing in layers to allow for changes in temperature is recommended.
