Feeling stylishly Scandinavian? This two week adventure was made for you
You can’t say you’ve travelled all of Europe until you’ve been to Scandinavia. This land of natural beauty and minimalistic style is huge and so different to the rest of Europe, we thought it deserved a whole package to itself.
Start your interrail trip around Northern Europe with a couple of nights in Berlin before heading to the Danish capital. The liberal and charming city of Copenhagen is sure to win you over with its amazing architecture and friendly locals. Don’t miss out on seeing its jaw-droppingly beautiful nearby castles, too! Then make your way up north (with a camera to hand) through the stunning Swedish countryside and into Norway. Its capital, Oslo, will welcome you with open arms, offering a range of museums and sights all within easy walking distance. Venture further out into the fjords and you’ll also get to experience the great Scandi outdoors with the most stunning of backdrops.
Interrail back through Sweden on a train headed to colourful Stockholm, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Contemporary, slick and stylish are just a few words we could use to describe this gem! After a couple of nights here, take the overnight ferry across the Baltic Sea to Helsinki, Finland – a harbour town set on a picturesque fjord. Brimming with edgy art and an alternative bar scene, you’ll have plenty of photo ops!
If you don’t want to stop there, then you can always nip across the Finnish Gulf to explore the Baltics, starting in Tallinn, Estonia.

Did the 3 week Eastern Europe tour and it was amazing! Couldn't recommend Euroventure enough! Took all the hassle out of travelling, particularly for someone as unorganised as I am! All the hostels were clean, comfortable and friendly. Our tour guide Dave was great too! Knew all the good places to go to, even gave us a free walking tour in Prague. Couldn't do enough for us. Thanks everyone involved!

Just recently got back from the Iron Curtain tour and already have post tour blues! I enjoyed the trip immensely, met some fab people and felt like I laughed the whole week. I liked using euroventure as having everything planned out in advance took all the stress away compared to if I planned it myself. Big shout out to our tour leader David who was great to hang out with. He made the transitions between places and cities very easy and stress free. His sarcastic wit and humour made my week. He also had great knowledge on the sights we visited. The itinerary was jam packed with activities to do. Would highly recommend using Euroventure, will definitely be using them again!
