WHY IT RATES: Authentic Vacations is growing their destination list to offer more options for travelers.—Codie Liermann, Associate Editor
Authentic Vacations has expanded its product list with an exciting new collection of small group tours to Scandinavia and Iceland. These small group packages focus on local immersive experiences and have a maximum of 15 people per tour ensuring personal connections and meaningful travel.
As the originators of ‘authentic’ travel, Authentic Vacations has been crafting comprehensive FIT and small group packages for nearly two decades. Charming old-world accommodations and activities regularly experienced by locals are key components of each itinerary.
Scandinavian small group tours will offer similarly unique experiences to an intimate group, as travelers are transported to some of the most beautiful and remote destinations in the world.
Each tour will be hosted by an experienced local guide. Travelers will intimately experience Iceland, Norway, Denmark and Sweden.
The Icelandic tours feature unique activities such as exploring the highland plateau in specialized Highlander vehicles, an Amphibian Boat tour on a glacial lake—complete with views of the largest ice cap in Europe (Vatnajokull Glacier), a rye bread baking demonstration and tasting and a once-in-a-lifetime journey through the man-made ice tunnels of Langjokull—Iceland’s second largest glacier.
The Norwegian Fjords tour features the historical mountain train ride on Flamsbana (considered to be the most breathtaking train route in the world), a scenic cruise through the country’s longest and steepest fjord—Sognefjord, and an optional helicopter ride over the dramatic Hardangerfjord.
The popular Scandinavian Capitals tour features an overnight cruise from Oslo to Copenhagen, a tour of the tranquil one thousand-year-old Sormlands archipelago, and numerous traditional Scandinavian meals.
With the addition of these small group Scandinavian tours, Authentic Vacations continues to expand their destination list while adhering to their core promise to deliver unique and localized experiences.
2018 has been another year of growth for Authentic Vacations, from their new membership with USTOA in the beginning of the year to their expansion with a second US office in Phoenix. This progress will continue with new destinations and authentic travel products slated for release in 2019.
