    To see (and taste) another side of Copenhagen, we recommend a self-guided tour at the historic Carlsberg brewery, only a few kilometres by bus from the city centre.

    In the afternoon, check-in for your cruise to Oslo. The ship cruises gently up the Kattegat Sund on its way to Norway’s capital city. On board you can take part in the dancing and entertainment or just relax and watch the sunset from the deck.

We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

Well organised

It was well organised - all arrangements timed perfectly - good background information in the itinery


The service we received from Cicci was excellent : prompt replies to my email questions and up-to-date information about everything. She was extremely helpful, pleasant and efficient in all she did.

So easy

Nordic Visitor made everything SO EASY! All I had to worry about was showing up on time. Everything was taken care of, and it really gave me peace of mind and allowed me to enjoy my vacation.

Attention to detail was wonderful

…Cecilia Markov (the person I was working with predominantly at your company) is AMAZING! I can't say enough about her - she was patient, and friendly and made the tour memorable. I cannot say enough about our service I received from your company. The attention to detail was wonderful not only from your company but the service providers you use was wonderful. It made me feel so incredibly special.

We were delighted

We were delighted with our accommodations, especially on the DFDS overnight ship from Copenhagen to Oslo. It made such a difference and the buffet was superb.

Hotels were all in really good, central positions, close to transport links and city centres. This did mean one of the rooms was noisy (Copenhagen Scandic Palace) on our last night, as it overlooked a side street with busy restaurants; if we had been staying longer we would have asked to move rooms. Overall, this didn't detract from our enjoyment,  though.
The standard of transport was excellent, from the limousines that collected us from the airport, to the cabin on the ferry from Denmark to Norway, to the trains. The rail journey form Stockholm was particularly lovely - comfortable, fast and quiet trains, gorgeous scenery, and we crossed The Bridge, too. The time spent in each city was just long enough to absorb the essential elements that made each one special, and it was really interesting to be able to compare their similarities and differences. The holiday felt much longer than nine days.


Sleep soundly, in the accommodation type of your choice, and wake up ready to enjoy another day of exploration.
