Comprehensive touring throughout with a sidetrip to Tallin
SCANDINAVIA is a dream destination for
many people, including Jill Carmody, owner-
manager of Leongatha Travel and Cruise, who
will make that dream come true for South
Gippsland travellers this July.
After a long wait and due to strong demand,
Jill has designed an exclusive itinerary so you
can experience the Midnight Sun in The Arc-
Jill said it has always been her desire to
visit Scandinavia, but until now, she hadn’t
had the opportunity due to other destinations
that took priority in the past.
Having escorted many tours to different
parts of the world with her husband and busi-
ness partner, Ed Carmody, Jill has been plan-
ning this trip for a long time.
“ We have already sold over half of our allot-
ment on this hand crafted tour through Ben-
tours, our Scandinavian specialists, after re -
leasing it to our pre -registered guests in late
November, ” Jill said.
“ I am very excited about the itinerary, which
has taken a great deal of time to organise and
plan to ensure that as many highlights as pos-
sible are included. Many of which are not in-
cluded in traditional brochured tours.
“Our group will depart Leongatha on Thurs-
day, July 6, flying into Stockholm, the capital
of Sweden, where after a two -night stay and
an introductory tour of this fine city, includ-
ing entrance to the City Hall and the Vasa Mu-
seum, we will continue on our tour with a rail
journey to Copenhagen, Denmark.
“I have allowed a three-night stay in Co -
penhagen, so in addition to the highlights of
this beautiful city, we enjoy an extended visit
to the Tivoli Gardens, followed by a full-day
side -trip to Odense for a guided tour to ‘fol-
low in the footsteps of Hans Christian Ander-
“After a short flight on to Oslo, we have time
to check out the city including a visit to the
Viking Ship Museum before journeying on the
“ This iconic train journey through the
breath-taking fjord region incorporates ‘Nor-
way in a Nutshell’, which ends in the historic
trading port of Bergen.
“From Bergen we commence our six-night
voyage on Hurtigruten’s MS Polarlys which
will take us through some of the most ma-
jestic scenery in the world, including the
Geirangerfjord, the Royal City of Trondheim,
and across the Arctic Circle to our destina-
“ During our journey through Lapland we
stay overnight in Saariselka and Rovaniemi,
with a visit to Santa Claus Village, and a very
special sightseeing opportunity where we ex-
perience the Midnight Sun.
“ To complete our journey we visit Helsinki,
the capital of Finland, with a side -trip to Tal-
lin in Estonia. This former Soviet Union city
with its beautifully preserved Unesco World
Heritage listed old town, will make for a
memorable end to our in depth experience;
having visited so many diverse regions of
Scandinavia and Northern Europe.
“ This is a unique opportunity to visit Scan-
dinavia on a tour that incorporates so many
highlights, and a variety of modes of trans-
“I am very excited about what this very special
tour has to offer,” Jill said, adding that it has al-
ways been her ambition to undertake a voyage
on the Hurtigruten while visiting Scandinavia, a
definite standout on this group tour.
