We recommend that all Nordic Visitor travellers read through the following information about our self-guided tours, travelling with the DFDS ship, boarding flights or trains, and other useful information for your travels.
OUR SELF-GUIDED TOURS
This is an independent, self-guided tour. All accommodation, train, flight, cruise and ferry tickets (as specified in the itinerary) will be pre-booked by Nordic Visitor, but travellers are ultimately responsible for getting to hotels and to any ferry departure points by the specified times.

WOULD YOU RATHER TAKE THE TRAIN?
If you prefer to travel from Sweden to Denmark by railway instead of flight, then we are happy to arrange that for you. In the summer months the train company is conducting track maintenance work and changes throughout the route might occur and make the journey longer than the standard duration of 5 hours and 10 minutes. The train tickets might not be bookable until 30 days prior departure, in the meantime we will book the rest of the travel arrangements for you. Please select the train option during the booking steps online if preferred.
