Tick off some of Scandinavia’s bucket list cities with our 1 week Group Tour!
You’ll have one to two nights in each location, with plenty of time to explore historic sights, culture, nightlife and more. There’ll be unmissable activities which are included in your price – but there will also be other optional activities on offer. We’ve also included a few free days throughout your trip, so that you can chill out and do whatever you fancy.
Throughout the trip we’ll hang out as a group at least once in each city for drinks – you’ll be travelling with other likeminded travellers, as well as your dedicated tour leader.
Your tour begins in the magical city of Copenhagen- Danish capital and the home of ‘Scandi cool’. You’ll meet your Euroventure tour leader and the rest of your group in the late afternoon at your first hostel. If you need an extra night before your tour starts to fit in with your flights then you can add this at check-out.
Wander down to the harbour to experience the colourful heart of Copenhagen or drink at one of the city’s many bustling microbreweries. In the evening, you’ll join your new travel buddies to take on the Copenhagen pub crawl- be sure to sample a traditional Danish Pilsner or two along the way!
Kick off your second day with either free time exploring the city or one of our two incredible optional activities- marvel at the luxury of the renaissance Rosenborg Castle or enjoy stunning aerial views of the city from the viewing platform of Our Saviour’s Church. Then, why not grab some lunch at the Reffen Street Food Market before exploring the weird and wonderful Superkilen Urban park? In the evening, take a river cruise where you’ll get the chance to see the famous ‘Little Mermaid’ statue before heading to Tivoli Gardens- the world’s second oldest and most exciting amusement park.
For your last morning in the city, why not pay the city’s lush botanical gardens a visit? Grab some snacks there before your train ride to Stockholm!

Train to Stockholm – 5.5 hours
Hallå Stockholm! Home to cobbled streets, breath-taking architecture and unmissable activities, this vibrant city is not one to miss. After checking in to your hostel you’ll have time to explore your latest destination, wander the streets of the Old Town down to the harbour or head into central Stockholm to grab something to eat.
The next day begins with an included trip to the Skansen open-air museum, giving you the perfect opportunity to lap up some old Swedish culture before optional activities begin that afternoon. From there visit the Vasa Museum and learn the bizarre history of the world’s most sophisticated 17th-century warship or live your Swedish popstar fantasy with a trip to the world-famous ABBA museum. Spend your evening chilling out in the hostel bar and chat with your group or go for food at Mälarpaviljongen, a floating restaurant on the Riddarfjärden waterfront*.
*Summer tours only.
Optional: ABBA Museum
Optional: Vasa Museum
Night Ferry to Helsinki – 18 hours
Arrive in the world’s happiest city feeling refreshed after chilling out in the night ferry’s onboard sauna.
After dropping your bags at the hostel, your group will head to the Helsinki Skywheel to experience breathtaking 360-degree views of the city skyline. You’ll then head to the small islands of Suomenlinna, Vallisaari and Lonna on an included island-hopping tour. Discover hidden underground passages, impenetrable sea fortresses and rare wildlife native to the Helsinki coast. That evening wind down with some free time and go and grab a beer or two at the traditional Liberty or Death pub.
Before the end of your trip, why not try a relaxing Finnish sauna experience at Kotiharjun, the only traditionally wood-heated sauna in Helsinki? Alternatively, take some free time to further explore the city before saying farewell to the rest of your group (for now, at least!)
If you’d like an extra day to sightsee, or to fit in with the most convenient flight times, you can include a night of post-trip accommodation before flying home the following day.
