Meet your private vehicle, guide and driver for a half-day city tour of Copenhagen. Copenhagen, the city famous for HC Andersen’s Little Mermaid, quaint colourful houses, and the red nosed Viking Peter Schmeichel, has recently undergone a transformation. New Nordic cuisine, a prime minister who rides her bike to work, a relaxed attitude to life and of course plenty of locally brewed beer has made Copenhagen one of the top places to visit in Northern Europe. During the tour you will see the Amalienborg Palace, Christiansborg Palace (seat of the Danish Parliament), Hans Christian Andersen’s statue, Gefion Fountain, the old harbour of Nyhavn, the famous Little Mermaid and many other popular sights. Entrance fees are not included.

Enjoy time at leisure to explore at your own pace, or relax at your hotel.

The Castle Gardens include an English style romantic garden and a more formal French baroque garden. Kronborg Castle, known as Elsinore in English, stands at the seaward approach to the Oresund Sound. It’s one of northern Europe's best preserved Renaissance castles.

The Old Town (Gamla Stan) is a huge area of historical heritage, with many sights all around us and the narrow cobbled streets recall a bygone era. Refreshments can be enjoyed in a cellar dating back to the 14th century. Walk to the city centre, passing by the Swedish Parliament, the Royal Opera House, the Swedish Foreign Office, the Grand Hotel and a stroll among the cherry trees in King`s Garden, the inner city`s most popular meeting place.

The hotel interiors are inspired by that essential Nordic element: light. The results are clean, simple, and transparent in color and shape, with constantly shifting lighting. Nordic Light hotel has created a meeting place for contemporary adults and demanding misfits; honest in nature and kind in mind. Nordic Light Hotel is a member of the international association, Design Hotels.

Upon arrival in Luleå you will take a private transfer with vehicle and driver to Treehotel which is located in the boreal forest approximately an hour from Luleå (Kallax) airport.

Check-in is at Britta’s Pensionat and after that you walk to your “room” which will be either: The UFO, The Cabin, The Mirror Cube, The Birds Nest, The Blue Cone. Each treeroom is a unique creation by Scandinavia’s leading architects. The modern design combined with the quiet of the forest creates an instant feeling of luxurious relaxation.

In the afternoon enjoy a 2 hours sauna session at the specially designed wooden sauna. A sauna in the woods is both natural and sensible. You also have access to a hot tub as well as their custom-designed relaxation area. Other amenities: shampoo, conditioner, soap, towels and slippers.

Accommodation: Treehotel

Treehotel is located in Harads, near the Lule river, about 100 kilometers from Luleå airport and offers a unique hotel experience: treerooms with contemporary design in the middle of unspoiled nature. The rooms are suspended 4-6 meters above ground - all with spectacular views of the Lule River. Each room is unique. Not only the architecture but also its furniture, lighting and fabrics are custom designed. The rooms vary in size between 15-30 m², with the largest rooms accommodating up to four people. The daily operations as well as the tree room’s construction are environmentally friendly, aimed to have minimal impact on nature. That’s why each room has modern, environmentally-friendly combustion toilets and water-efficient sinks. Enjoy all meals at Britta’s Pensionat served by your hosts Kent and Britta in a genuine 1930’s-1950’s setting. The warm and cozy atmosphere at Britta’s, combined with the treerooms’ contemporary design, creates an entirely unique dimension for you as a Treehotel guest.

Day 6: Harads

At Treehotel you can experience the charm of all four seasons, regardless of whether you like speed and adventure, or tranquility and time for reflection. Want to experience the beautiful winter with its stark contrasts of dark skies against glistening white snow? An action-packed dog sled ride through the frozen landscape, or a calm and quiet snowshoe hike in pursuit of the magic and myth of the northern lights? Ice melts and greenery explodes after the long sleep of winter. Why not experience the arrival of summer and its bright nights while on horseback,mountain bike, or peacefully by foot? During the most colourful of seasons, it’s a rare experience to paddle a kayak along the historic Lule River and enjoy the autumn’s fresh, clean air. And, if you like fishing, you have access to good fishing waters all year around.

Here are a few suggestions that you may be interested in:

Sami Culture: Guided tour to Flakaberg, a village about 80 km from Harads. Here you’ll visit the family of Lars Eriksson who will show his reindeer pastures and talk about the Sami culture.

Trekking: Travel with your guide to Storklint, a popular ski resort about 20 minutes by car from Treehotel. The area around Storklints is known for its beautiful nature.

Horseback Riding: On Caspadia’s Farm’s calm Irish cob horses.

Fishing: Try fishing for perch, bleak, roach, ide, bream, trout, pike and more.

Snowshoe tour: Your guide will equip you with warm clothes, boots, snowshoes and poles. During the tour they’ll share their knowledge of animals and nature, and the art of surviving in the wild – including how to start a fire in the winter. The hike will go up to a mountain peak where you’ll have a magnificent view of the river valley’s winter landscape.

Snowmobile tour: Riding a snowmobile through a beautiful winter landscape is a liberating feeling, just like surfing or riding a motorbike.

Husky Dog sled tour: A tour with dog and sled through the pristine forest and over the frozen river provides a dream-like feeling.

  • Vanessa Oquendo — April 21, 2014 — Europe

    Melissa Field was extremely helpful! She was courteous, professional, knowledgeable, and friendly! She kept me updated on the status of everything and provided timely correspondence. She took ownership for any problems I had and remedied them. I had the most amazing time of my life in Iceland and Paris! I would not have experienced everything without the help of Kensington Tours.

  • Marilynn Weaver — April 21, 2014 — Europe

    All of our guides were beyond fabulous! Our time in Dublin was much too short, would have loved to stay there at least one more full day. Would recommend extending this package to 15 days for any future visits. The train to Edinburgh was super! Beautiful scenery and great steak pies!

  • Ann Saxon — November 06, 2013 — Europe

    Our trip was fantastic!!! I cannot say enough good things. Lianne worked with our exact dates and time frame beautifully.Our drivers were prompt and friendly. The private guides were so knowledgeable. We left with an appreciation of the history, the culture, and the beauty of Andulasia. We were very pleased and will certainly recommend your company to friends and family.

  • Coby Scherr — November 05, 2013 — Europe

    Everyone involved in our Portugal trip made it terrific. Exactly as advertised. Every event on time and most pleasant. Guides were well-informed, courteous and friendly. Really made for a great journey every time. Each hotel was clean, upgraded and staffed with knowledgeable and friendly folks. Breakfasts were complete -- almost too much to eat. It will always be a wonderful memory thanks to Kensington Tours.

  • Couples Dellinger & Hubbell — November 06, 2013 — Europe

    We've been raving to everyone about the food, the friendliness of the people and the amazing history and sites in Turkey. Yes, we want to go back.

  • John Edstrom — October 22, 2013 — Europe

    Overall, our tour in Spain was very enjoyable, and well planned and executed. Our private tour of the Alhambra was excellent. Virginia, tour guide for royal palace ruins outside of Cordoba, was also excellent. In Seville, we went to the Flamenco Show/dinner, and the Flamenco was outstanding!

  • Kevin Wilshere — October 19, 2013 — Europe

    Great trip to Spain! Thanks again for all your help, Lianne. The destinations, hotels, guides and everything were all top notch.

  • Chery Westlund — November 07, 2013 — Europe

    My husband and I took a 3 week vacation to southern Europe and North Africa and had a great time. All the guides were very knowledgeable and bent over backwards to accommodate us. The arrangements made by Kensington went off without a hitch. This is our second trip with Kensington (we went to Peru in 2009) and we will certainly book with them again.

  • Randy Gramlich — October 07, 2013 — Europe

    Thank you for your follow up, we both loved our time in Croatia. It’s really a beautiful place, especially the coast. Your choice of hotels was great. It was an incredible view from the Bellevue hotel in Dubrovnik and the Vestibule in Split was in the best possible location. We were able to relax in our room listening to the wonderful singers in the courtyard and its central location made it so easy to walk anywhere we wanted to see with ease.

  • Jay Steffan — September 24, 2013 — Europe

    We just returned from a 10 day trip to Paris and Normandy. We spent three nights in Paris and then enjoyed a seven night cruise on the Seine to Normandy with AMA Waterways. The time in Paris was well spent and has piqued our interest to return for a more thorough visit. Guide Wafaa Lankey was superb in our visit to Versailles. The Seine cruise was relaxing and beautiful. So many wonderful little towns and we wished we had more time in each one to explore and enjoy.

    We traveled to Croatia and Slovenia using Kensington earlier this year which was a fantastic trip.
