Denmark, Norway and Iceland are the perfect summer destinations. The weather is mild, the crowds are never overwhelming. It makes traveling a joy! The Traveling Professor has developed a delightful itinerary featuring outstanding hotels, tremendous natural beauty, fun activities, and attractions full of culture and history.
Neighborhood Walks, Museums, Markets and Gardens: Copenhagen is a city of ships, meandering canals, royalty, The Little Mermaid, Tivoli Gardens, and Hans Christian Anderson. Oslo sparkles like a jewel perched at the edge of the fjord. Its glacier-like opera house is surrounded by Viking ships, Thor Heyerdahl's Kon-Tiki, royal palaces, and the largest sculpture park in the world. You will scream with delight at the Munch Museum, jump for joy at the panoramic views from the Holmenkollbakken ski-jumping hill, and all I am saying is, give the Nobel Peace Prize Institute a chance. Flåm and the Flåm valley boast natural beauty, sitting beneath snow-capped mountains at the base of the Sognefjord. A UNESCO World Heritage City, Bergen proudly promenades a Hanseatic heritage of bustling fish markets, colorful wooden homes, and a network of cobblestone streets.
