Copenhagen & Stockholm

Explore the beauty of Scandinavia on this fantastic journey. First, visit Copenhagen, the chic capital of Denmark, where you will experience the city and culture before venturing north to the iconic castles. Enjoy thoughtful meal recommendations made by our experts, or venture out on your own to explore the local cuisine.

After this glimpse into the beauty of Denmark, venture to Sweden, where you will take in sophisticated Stockholm. This stunning city is home to a plethora of museums and cultural experiences. Check them out on guided adventures, as well as on your own, then take a day trip to the beautiful archipelago outside of the city.

Throughout your Scandinavian adventure, Cox & Kings will work with you to ensure your journey is authentic, innovative, unforgettable, and customized to your preferences.

  • Day 1
    Arrive Copenhagen

    Upon arrival in Copenhagen, you will be met and guided through customs and immigration before being escorted to your centrally located hotel. After checking in, enjoy the remainder of the day at leisure to take advantage of the amenities at your hotel or begin your explorations of the city.

    We suggest you explore the neighborhood that will be your home for the next few days. A good place to start is Nyhavn, the famous Copenhagen canal, which is lined with pretty and colorful houses. In the evening we suggest you have dinner at Restaurant Salon. It's a beautiful restaurant that is run by chef Claus Christensen, who is an institution in the Danish restaurant scene. He is very closely affiliated with the Danish art community and his restaurant is decorated with works from great Danish artists.

  • Day 2

    Denmark is well known for its strong design and architecture tradition, and Copenhagen is the best place to experience it. Copenhagen is hailed as one of the most livable cities in the world, and the restaurant scene is among the best and most innovative you'll find.

    This morning, a guide will pick you up at your hotel, give you your 72-hour Copenhagen Card which offers free entrance to a number of sights, free transit and discounts, and take you on a private tour around the city. Your guide will tell you all about the famous Little Mermaid and Amalienborg Palace-the Queen of Denmark's winter residence. We suggest you have lunch in one of Copenhagen's traditional restaurants, and try smorrebrod, a traditional Scandinavian sandwich.

    After lunch, you will be brought to a boat departure point where your guide will accompany you on a tour of the idyllic canals and harbors of Copenhagen-there's nothing like seeing a beautiful city from the water. You will pass by some of the city's most famous buildings, such as the Royal Opera, the Royal Playhouse, and the National Library. For dinner, a visit to 108 is always a good idea - it is the more casual little brother of Noma, the four time Best Restaurant in the World winning restaurant.

  • Day 3
    North of Copenhagen

    After breakfast, a guide and a car will pick you up and take you on an excursion to North Zealand. You will begin the tour with a guided visit to the famous Kronborg Castle in Elsinore. Also known as Hamlet's Castle, it is Northern Europe's most beautiful Renaissance castle and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Following the visit to Kronborg, you will continue to Frederiksborg Castle. This impressive Renaissance castle was built in the first decades of the 17th century by the Danish King Christian IV.

    After the castle tours it is time for lunch, and we recommend Gl. Humlebaek kro. The restaurant dates back to 1740 and serves homemade traditional Danish food. If you prefer a fine dining experience instead, we suggest you visit Restaurant Sletten, which serves gourmet food with an ocean view.

    Following lunch, we recommend a visit to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. The museum's permanent collection includes more than 3,000 works and is one of the largest in Scandinavia. It features pieces created after 1945 and includes works from Picasso, Giacometti, Andy Warhol, and Rauschenberg. The magnificent sculpture garden is also a can't miss.

    Once you are back in Copenhagen, dinner at the posh restaurant Geist would be a great choice.

  • Day 4

    Today your local guide will pick you up in the lobby, and together you'll decide which sights or museums you want to see. If you are in the mood for a visit to a magnificent art museum, which will give you a great overview over Denmark's art history through the centuries, we suggest you visit the National Gallery of Denmark. At the gallery you will find 700 years' worth of art and art history.

    Another option is an expert guided visit to Designmuseum Danmark. It is Denmark's largest museum for Danish and international design and a central exhibition forum for industrial design and applied arts in Scandinavia. The visit serves as the perfect starting point for understanding the development of the Danish design tradition.

    For your last dinner in Copenhagen, we suggest Kodbyens Fiskebar. It is Copenhagen's best fish and seafood restaurant.

The ride is an excellent opportunity to see the beautiful and changing Swedish countryside, while enjoying a first class train compartment. Once you arrive in Stockholm, a car will pick you up and take you to your centrally located hotel.

On the way, you will also stop by the Royal Castle and the City Hall, where you can climb the tower to get a fantastic view of the city.

    For lunch we suggest restaurant Gyldene Freden. The restaurant has been serving classic Swedish cuisine since 1722. On Thursdays, the Swedish Academy, judicial body of the Nobel Prize in Literature, eats dinner here, as they have since the early 1900s.

    After lunch your guide will pick you up and take you to the Vasa Museum. It houses the Vasa ship, which sank in the 17th century and was lifted onto land in the 1960s. The museum is one of the best in Sweden and offers its visitors a truly unforgettable experience.

    For dinner, we suggest Restaurant Langa Raden at Skeppsholmen, where seasonal ingredients and traditional Swedish food come together.
