Historical viking reenactments
at Ribe VikingeCenter

Denmark

Start in Denmark, often ranked as the
happiest country in the world and a hub
of sleek Scandinavian design, bicycles
and New Nordic cuisine, highlighting
local seasonal ingredients and fresh fish.
Experience Viking history firsthand at
Ribe VikingeCenter, a heritage center
featuring authentic reconstructions
of Ribe's earliest Vikings. Or, explore
Copenhagen's National Museum;
it boasts a vast collection of Viking
artifacts, including runestones - rocks
the Vikings inscribed with the story
of a great man or woman (Vikings
were ahead of their time in promoting
women). Some 3,000 runestones remain
throughout Scandinavia.
From the more recent past, one of
Copenhagen's most famous attractions
is Tivoli, the world's second-oldest
amusement park. Opened in 1843, it's a
Copenhagen must-see. Amid gardens and
trees, merry-go-rounds and other rides,
theaters, arcades and dozens of high-end
restaurants and food stands are arranged.
It's a good place to sample smorrebrod,
the popular open-faced sandwich that
could be the Danish national dish.
To get out on the water - like the
Vikings did - try a boat tour around
Copenhagen. A good place to board is
the oft-photographed Nyhavn district.
It's centuries old; No. 9, the oldest house
remaining, was built in 1681. Many of

the houses have been occupied by famous
writers and artists; Hans Christian
Andersen wrote The Princess and the Pea
while living here. Brightly painted gabled
houses line the Nyhavn canal, where old
boats are tied - the subject matter for
countless postcards.

Sweden

Arriving in Gothenburg, a port city
founded in the 1600s, you soon notice its
canals - the city was built by the Dutch
- which you'll cruise through aboard a
private charter, learning about the region's
history. Today the city is known as a hip
center for creative pursuits, boasting a
vibrant music and arts scene; galleries and
cafes line its cobblestone streets, which are
crisscrossed by blue and white trams. The
Gothenburg City Museum, housed in a
grand 18th-century building, is worth a
visit to see Sweden's only surviving Viking
ship. Cross Sweden toward the Baltic Sea
and Stockholm's unmistakable silhouette
appears, set across 14 islands connected
by more than 50 bridges. Here, a Local
Expert introduces you to some of the
city's wonders, including the cathedral
and the Royal Palace, a baroque style
behemoth with more than 600 rooms
arranged around an inner courtyard.
Stockholm's 13th-century old town,
Gamla Stan, has a fairy-tale charm. It's
easy to wile away hours strolling and
window shopping its car-free streets,
