Beginning in buzzing Berlin, we’ll take you north through the jaw-dropping landscapes of fjords, glaciers, forests, lakes and mountains of Scandinavia.

With more museums than rainy days and some of the best DJs on the continent, the only thing you'll miss out on in Berlin is sleep – but there's plenty of time for that later. Drop your bags and get the trip admin sorted at the hostel before getting to know your new trip pals over dinner.
