Friday, July 25

Stockholm: After breakfast, enjoy a Stockholm city tour. Once home of the Vikings, today’s Sweden is a captivating mix of old and new. This capital city is the very epitome of a vibrant cosmopolitan center, alive with world-class art museums, cuttingedge fashion boutiques and sizzling night life. Remarkable architecture abounds, exemplified in the dazzling City Hall, site of the Nobel Prize reception, with its glittering gold walls and stunning colored-glass mosaics. But even in this thrilling center of culture, you’ll find traces of Sweden’s fabled past.

In the Gamla Stan, the city’s Old Town, medieval Stockholm comes to life in this beautifully preserved historic district. This afternoon, explore the city on your own or choose an optional excursion of The Royal Canal and Vasa Warship Museum.

Oslo – Stalheim: On this morning’s city tour, your local guide will walk you through Vigeland Sculpture Park as you discover the amazing granite and bronze artwork. Catch a glimpse of the regal and impressive Royal Palace. All these pleasures await, plus the bustling trade of a thriving port city. After the tour, transfer to the Oslo train station for one of the best ways to view the wonders of Scandinavia: aboard a scenic railway that traverses this breathtaking countryside. Dizzying vistas open out on all sides as you speed from Oslo toward Myrdal, a remote mountain station located 3,000 feet above sea level. Famous for its remarkable panoramic views, Myrdal is the stepping off point for yet another glorious train ride on the worldrenowned Flåm Railway. Descending 3,500 feet during a 13-mile journey into mountainous countryside, passengers glimpse wild rivers that cut through deep ravines, waterfalls cascading down sheer cliffs, and mountain farms clinging perilously to steep slopes. In the heart of this rugged countryside, the historic Stalheim Hotel offers a stunning panoramic perspective of astounding fjordland views. For nearly 200 years, artists, painters and poets have drawn inspiration from the awe-inspiring majesty of this remarkable natural spectacle. Meals: B, D

Carved out over centuries by waves of majestic glaciers, the fjords are a testament to the magnificent power of nature. No visit to Norway would be complete without views of the emerald green cliffs of the fjord sweeping sharply down to meet glittering waters. You just may glimpse a sight of seals as they sun themselves on warm rocks. After the cruise, meet your coach in Gudvangen where you’ll continue on the journey to Bergen. Meal: B

Nearby, you’ll visit Fantoft Stave Church, an example of unique wooden Medieval architecture. Characterized by the ‘staves’ (thick wooden posts), these traditional churches were constructed without the use of nails or glue, but relied on the expertise of local craftsmen creating joints to hold the structure together. Once housing more than 1000 stave churches, only 28 remain in Norway today. The remainder of the day is free to explore this charming city on your own. Meal: B
