We finish our tour with a visit to the fascinating Vigeland Sculpture Park, proudly displaying the life's work of Gustav Vigeland in bronze, granite and wrought iron. Spend the rest of the day people-watching over coffee in the Akker Bryge District or explore the nation's rich seafaring heritage. Consider a visit to the Fram Polar Ship Museum and Viking Ship Museum to see the world's best-preserved Viking ships and finds from Viking tombs found around the fjord. (SB) Stay: Scandic Solli

Oslo - Lillehammer - Lom - Geiranger (2 Nights)
We depart Oslo travelling north to Lillehammer, where we'll learn about the hugely successful Winter Olympics games that took place in the city in 1994. Many of the Olympic arenas remain open to visitors and the city has become the gateway to a variety of outdoor experiences. High peaks surround us as we journey to Lom, the gateway to Jotunheimen Mountains, where we will visit a 12th-century wooden Stave church and admire its Runic inscriptions and the carved dragon figures that are said to protect it from evil. This evening, we arrive at the spectacular UNESCO-listed Geiranger Fjord, where tonight we stat at one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories' - Hotel Geiranger, which offers spectacular views and authentic Norwegian hospitality. (SB/D) Stay: Geiranger
7
Geiranger Free Day
Soak up the wonder of this spectacular feat of nature, carved into the earth over several ice ages. Cascading waterfalls tumble down sheer cliffs into the glacial waters below, which you can explore by kayak or boat, immersing yourself in soaking up the crisp, surrounding mountainscape. Consider an Optional Experience to Trollstigen and see Norway's most famous mountain road, journeying past steep mountain slopes, past tumbling cascades and fertile valleys. After a day in intoxicating natural surroundings, we dine in our hotel this evening. (SB/D)

Today, we enjoy Norway's dramatic scenery - glaciers, snow-covered peaks and lush green landscapes provide the perfect backdrop for our leisurely drive north past the impressive Laksfoss Falls towards the Arctic Circle and Mo i Rana, located just 80km south of its border. Enjoy dinner at your hotel this evening. (SB/D) Stay: Scandic Meyergården
10
Mo I Rana - Narvik
Crossing the Arctic Circle, we head north across a wild and untouched land, past pretty villages with their colourful wooden homes, to Narvik, the site of fierce battles between the Allied and German forces during World War II. Savour the town's pure water, said to be among the best in Norway. (SB/D) Stay: Quality Grand
11
Narvik - Alta (2 Nights)
Spectacular natural vistas are ours to admire today as we skirt the rugged northern Norwegian coastline, past glaciers, dense spruce forests and spectacular peaks through a land unlike any other. Arriving in Alta, at the edge of the exquisite Altafjord, we have an opportunity to learn how the town was destroyed by fire at the end of World War II. View the Cathedral of the Northern Lights, a fitting name for the town that so often enjoys the spectacle of vivid green, purple and pink lights that dance across the sky in winter. (SB) Stay: Thon
12

14
Honningsvåg - Saariselkä
Travel through expansive landscapes across the border of Finland and to the popular winter-sports resorts of Saariselkä. This is Lapland at its best - in summer, the midnight sun shines brightly for several months, while in winter, the skies above Saariselkä are frequently graced by the magical dancing lights of the Aurora Borealis. (SB/D) Stay: Santa Claus Tunturi
15
Saariselkä - Rovaniemi
Tell Santa how good you've been this year in his home town of Rovaniemi, the capital of Lapland.

'Dive Into Culture' and see his office and post office, where every year Christmas magic happens. (SB/D) Stay: Scandic Pohjanhovi
16
Rovaniemi - Jyväskylä
Journey south, traversing the picturesque Finnish Lakeland - hundreds of lakes and forest-clad landscapes provide a beautiful backdrop for a leisurely drive through the heart of Finland. We arrive in Jyväskylä, the "Athens of Finland", so named for its major role as the first place in the world to provide education in the Finnish language. This evening, 'Connect With Locals' at Savutuvan Apaja restaurant over a Be My Guest dinner featuring traditional Finnish flavours of cloudberry and rye-blueberry bake. (SB/DW) Stay: Scandic Jyväskylä

Aptly on Mid-Summer's Day we started our Nordic Adventure with Trafalgar Tours together with 35 new friends from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the US and South Africa. Our tour director was brilliant - informative, caring, humorous and unflappable. Likewise our coach driver - his first time on this 5000+km itinerary and not one scary moment.

We had excellent weather for most of the time though the North Cape of Norway and Arctic Finland were shrouded in mist but this had its own atmosphere effect. Highlights are difficult to choose as there were so many, but the Geiranger Fjord area with its nearby Dalsnibba, Eagle and Trollistgen roads challenge anything the Alps can offer in mountainous scenery and hair-pin roads. Turning the street corner in Helsinki and seeing the gleaming white Helsinki Lutheran Cathedral was breathtaking. The booking through Global Journeys was easy and with very rapid responses to questions - thanks to Madeline.

Booking With Global Journeys
This was a good holiday, operating at the peak of the European season, with the locals enjoying the sunshine. There were lots of buses and cruise ships around. Most locals spoke good English. Our coach was very comfortable, and the tour guide and drivers were excellent. Our guide, Lasse, really worked to look after us and keep us entertained and informed on the bus. There were 47 tourists, mainly older people from Australia, Canada and the US. It was a harmonious group with no 'troublemakers'. The hotels and food were OK, but apart from some local foods, there was nothing special.

The sightseeing was good, and I would recommend the trip to others. There were some long driving days, which bothered some people, but I rather liked these. I feel that I have acquired a knowledge of Scandinavia. The included sightseeing was good, and overall, the optional tours were worthwhile, covering natural and social history as well as restaurants and experiences. We spent about 1500 euros on optionals.
