Trafalgar Tours’ Contrasts of Scandinavia and Russia – May/June 2010
This tour is no longer offered by Trafalgar but follows very closely to the current Capitals of the North tour. The major difference is that Contrasts of Scandinavia took the train between the cities whereas the Capitals of the North goes by bus. I notice many of the hotels are the same.
This map is for the Capitals of the North tour. The other difference is that we had two nights in Stockholm and there was no stop between Saint Petersburg and Moscow.
Having the opportunity to take the train through Scandinavia was ideal. As a Canadian, I’ve had my fill of driving for hours through northern forests, so the train enabled us to make a quick transit between cities – the real treat on this tour.
We shadowed a bus doing the same itinerary and met up with them in the cities when we did the same things or needed transport.
This travel tale was written as I traveled and is very detailed.
