    Days 1 - 4 - Moominworld - Finland

Originally published in Swedish, the Moomin are a family of trolls with large snouts, living in the forests of Finland. Kids all over Nordic countries read of the Moomin growing up and it has a cult following all around the world. Moomin world, located on island of Kailo, not far from the city of Turku in Finland, is a fantastic destination for a family with kids from very young to early teenagers. It’s a beautiful part of Finland and there are lots of other activities near by, such as the adventure island of Väski. Moominworld is open from mid June to mid August.

    Days 5 - 8 - Astrid Lindgren World, Sweden

    Probably the best known fictional character from Sweden would be Pippi Longstocking, dreamt up by one of Sweden’s national treasures, Astrid Lindgren. Astrid Lindgren’s World in Vimmerby, Småland pays tribute to all the characters that Scandinavian kids grow up with, such as the Brothers Lionheart, Ronja the robbers daughter, Emil, Karlsson on the roof and, of course, Pippi. This is a truly beautiful experience with so much to see and do.
    The fact that it is located in one of the most picturesque areas of Sweden, certainly doesn’t hurt.

    Day 1: Vimmerby is almost half way between Gothenburg, Stockholm and Copenhagen. Depending on which city you come from, you would pick up your car today and spend a leisurely day driving, with plenty of breaks to enjoy the countryside.

    Day 2: Enjoy Astrid Lindgren World for the whole day. Meet the characters, explore the park and boost your energy levels with some great local food for kids and adults.

    Day 3: Depending on your schedule, go for a wander along Vimmerby. Dating back to the 14th century, the narrow streets and wooden buildings are a sight to see. You can continue getting to know Astrid Lindgren and visit some of the sights used in the many movies and tv series from her books.

    Day 4: Depart Vimmerby.

    Please note that Astrid Lindgren World has a variety of summer opening hours.

    Days 9 - 11 - Legoland, Denmark

    Few of us have not encountered the Danish invention of Lego in some shape or form during our childhood. And if you had to pick one Legoland park, then the Danish one at Billund would be the one not to miss. For those of us that spent our weekends and holidays building Lego as children, a Lego theme park is a dream come true - it's hard to say who will have more fun here, the kids or the parents.
    These days, the board games, computer games, clubs and exhibitions all contribute to making Lego bigger better and even more fun. This is another one the kids will thank you for.

    Day 1: Pick up your rental car in Copenhagen (it is also possible to fly to Billund)

    Day 2: Spend all day at Legoland in Billund.

    Day 3: Depart Billund

    Drive back to Copenhagen or continue your holiday in Denmark. Note, there are 2 day tours of the Lego factory in Billund published every year. They are extremely popular and only published on Lego.com. They book out very quickly but if you are lucky enough to secure the inside tour, rest assure we can help you with your other arrangements.

    Days 12 - 15 - Trolls at Hunderfossen Family Park, Oslo

    ONCE UPON A TIME.....in a country far far away, people lived their busy lives and had almost forgotten about the existence of trolls and other fairy tale creatures. But it was not lost... Because in the land of Norway, in the kingdom of Hunderfossen Family Park, the fairy tales survived and lived on. Guarded by a 14 meter high troll, and behind the gates of the 37 meter tall fairy tale castle, the treasure of the Norwegian folk stories is kept safe in Hunderfossen Family Park. Step inside and be a part of the fairy tales yourself. In the unique and mysterious atmosphere of Hunderfossen Family Park you will meet the prince and the princess, the King and the Queen, trolls and many other odd characters from the old Norwegian folk stories.

    From trolls to gokarts to a fairy tale castle, make this part of your family holiday to Norway!
