Whether you're intrigued by Norway, land of beautiful fjords...or Stockholm, Sweden, the "Venice of the North"...or the town of Copenhagen, Denmark, situated on a series of islands, Scandinavia has something for everyone. I remember visiting the Scandinavian capitals with my family when I was in college. It was the summer, and enjoying daylight up to 11 pm made quite and impression on me! It's a part of Europe that doesn't get talked about as much as, say, Italy, England, or France, but there is so much rich history in each of these countries, along with unrivaled natural beauty.
Now, thanks again to gluten free travel specialist Ellen Morse of Gluten Free Travel-Us, you can safely travel gluten free in these countries, all while staying in 4-star hotels she and her local Scandinavian travel partners have vetted. You'll also be provided with a list of restaurants for gluten free dining for any meals that are not pre-arranged as part of the trip. You will not have to "go it alone" figuring out where you can safely dine! And, of course, your traveling companions will have the choice of whether to eat gluten free or not. You are not locked in to "set menus."
As with all Ellen's itineraries, this is not a group tour...but a trip you can take anytime and with whomever you desire to travel with. You can tailor her suggested itinerary, which we outline on our website, based on your desired length of stay, budget, and interests. The itinerary presented includes 9 nights touring the capitals of Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Oslo. Accommodations, tours, transportation, and even many meals have been arranged -- including an overnight boat cruise from Copenhagen to Oslo! The itinerary Ellen has laid out is a perfect mix of tours and "free time" to enjoy each city at your leisure, whether you want to shop, sit in a cafe, or spend more time exploring sites and museums.
Take a look at the day-by-day Scandinavian itinerary...and don't miss ALL the amazing gluten free travel opportunities we lay out on our Gluten Free Getaways page. There's even another Scandinavian adventure for the hardy: a northern Norway/Arctic Circle trip to see the Northern Lights (any time of the year, including winter!).
As always, please share feedback on any of your own trips -- restaurants and hotels where you enjoyed safe gluten free meals anywhere in the world -- by submitting a review on our website, GlutenFreeTravelSite.com. It's so easy and greatly helps others with Celiac and gluten sensitivity who long to travel but may be concerned about following a gluten free diet "on the road."
