Our guide, Gabriella, was so knowledgeable about the history of Scandinavia and made the whole tour so interesting.

Bergen: In charming Bergen, explore the 14th-century Hanseatic merchants’ quarter of Bryggen, a World Heritage site; tour the 16th- century Bergenhus fortress, the country home of composer Edvard Grieg; and view the lively fish market. It is one of Europe’s most happening music scenes with more concerts than any other Scandinavian city.
