DENMARK | SWEDEN | NORWAY
- Margot Fadool,
FC America, Gothia Cup 2013
The whole trip was fantastic. I've been singing the praises of XL tours since we returned. I imagined a stressful week for me (based on my 30 year career in teaching and my years of field trip fiascoes). This was just the opposite. I was actually relaxed throughout the trip - ask anyone who knows me - relaxed is not normal for me.
A huge thank you to XL Tours for your patience and support during our year of planning.
Defined by a sophisticated culture and widespread natural beauty, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway offer a unique experience. The impressive national parks contrast exquisitely with the urban architecture and vibrant social scene. Sport and exercise is steeped into the culture, with Sweden playing host to the annual Gothia Cup, a youth soccer tournament comprising over 35,000 players from over 1,500 teams. For an adventure like no other, explore Scandinavia with XL Sports.
Marvel at the natural phenomenon of the Northern Lights with some of the best views available in Tromso, Norway. However the Aurora is often visible across Scandinavia because of its northerly position they really are, figuratively and literally, one of the highlights of the trip!
The second oldest amusement park in the world located in Copenhagen, Denmark, the theme park sprawls across expansive grounds and is home to a fully functioning wooden rollercoaster that dates back to 1914! So combine a day of white knuckle thrills with a little bit of historic culture at Tivoli Gardens!
The Venice of the north ...
There is water literally everywhere in Stockholm, Sweden so why not take to the water on one of Stockholm's many boat tours. Explore around the city or travel to one of the many islands, some that remain completely unspoiled! The boat tours provide a unique vantage point of the city and there are quite often hop-on hop-off options for those wanting to explore in their own time!
The Troll's Tongue...
Scandinavia is home to some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world, as you can see. Pictured is Trolltunga, Norway with its famous overhang above the snowcapped mountains, green hills and turquoise water!
