WYSU is planning one of our most requested tours ever for the spring of 2016 – an exciting 14-day trip to four Scandinavian countries, with an optional three-day trip to St. Petersburg, Russia!
From majestic mountains to fantastic fjords, there’s a lot to love about Scandinavia. The trip which departs on May 12, 2016, includes Denmark’s capital of Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki, as well as the maritime pasts and modern architecture of those grand cities.

NONE! And for adults the price is minimal, especially when considering the quality and quantity of what you can see with a ticket in hand. So here is a schedule of what Lucia and I did and how much it cost:
