We'll explore the diversity of Europe's Nordic countries — from agricultural Denmark, to industrial Sweden, to fjord-splintered Norway — as we meander through the Land of the Midnight Sun. We'll visit a salty fishing island, frolick in fjord country, and compare the capitals in Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm, and Helsinki.
We'll discover this formerly forbidden corner of Europe with visits to the treasure-packed city of St. Petersburg, where we'll marvel at the masterpieces in the Hermitage and other Tsarist treasures, then on to Tallinn — the charmingly Germanic capital of Estonia, and finally to Helsinki, Finland's fast-growing, prosperous capital.
Have you discovered airfare to Europe that includes a possible layover in Reykjavik to be one of the most affordable prices available? Many travelers are adding time in Iceland before or after their mainland European holiday. This class will focus on different sites in and around Reykjavik. We'll provide helpful information so you can make the best of your long layover or even a couple nights in the world's most northern capital city.
