To celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary we wanted to take a special trip. We contacted Zicasso and completed a survey. Within 36 hours I received a phone call from our travel planner. We talked on the phone for 30 minutes or so, our planer gathering all the relevant information. He really listened to our interests. When I said I was really interested in spending time in or near Fjords in Norway, he heard me. We decided on many of the things our travel planner recommended and he took it from there.
We flew from Los Angeles to Copenhagen for our first stop. From the time we stepped off the plane in Copenhagen to the time we landed back in LA two weeks later, we enjoyed every moment of our trip. Our travel planner had planned our two weeks so expertly - days of massage and spa following days of hiking and kayaking. Days in quiet countryside following days in the hustle and bustle of big cities. Our trip involved several major transports within Scandinavia (two airplane trips and an overnight ship to Northern Norway). Not once did we have to worry about finding cars, our lodging, etc. We had terrific, expert drivers scheduled for every event we participated in. It was all taken care of by our travel planner. On the way back home, because of how wonderful this trip turned out, my husband and I decided we would do a trip like this every few years from here on out. And we would use this company each and every time.
There were so many it is truly hard to choose. The hotel we stayed outside of Bergen was amazing. It was a wellness spa on a Fjord. Our room had a gorgeous view of the Fjord and the hotel itself had grounds that were breathtaking. They had a pier with swim ladders so you could hop in the fjord after spending time in the warm waters of the spa. I will never forget laying in the outside portion of a spa/pool, on the built in chaise lounge, looking at the stunning views of Norway. The ship that took us North, to Gerainger was an adventure, never having been on a cruise-type ship. We were only on the ship for about 18 hours, but it was a great way to see the fjords from the water. Although it was a beautiful boat, it gave me enough of an experience on a cruise ship to know I wouldn't want to take a lengthy trip on one. That was really valuable for me. We took a World War II walking tour in Amsterdam with a wonderful guide who made the day incredibly memorable. We also had a few days in the Bergen area where we had guides driving us to amazing sites and learning all about the area. We spent a day in Copenhagen on a food tour that was terrific. Not only did we get to eat some wonderful Danish food and drink, we learned a tremendous amount about the city and got to see wonderful sites in the city with an expert guide.
We spent time in Denmark, Norway and the Netherlands (Amsterdam). If I could take my trip over again I think I would spend even more time in Norway. That being said, I don't think I would have changed this trip at all. It was perfect :).
