GLOBUS 2024: Northern Capitals (ZT)
10 days from Copenhagen to Helsinki
If you're in search of a different European experience, just head north to the intersection of yesterday and tomorrow. Old meets new and tradition meets innovation on this cool tour of Scandinavia and its most exciting hot spots. With two-night stays in the capital cities of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland, you'll wake up to Copenhagen's rush hour of designer-clad cyclists, Oslo's stunning skyline 'starchitecture,' Stockholm's trendy galleries and gastro pubs, and Helsinki's electrifying design scene. Within these hipster hubs, you'll follow ancient Viking trails and the narrowest of cobblestone streets to the palaces and museums that hold the most fascinating historical stories-and the indoor and outdoor markets that carry the most intriguing snacks and souvenirs. The cool factor is illuminated on a breezy overnight cruise across the Baltic Sea from Stockholm to Helsinki.
