Description

This former medieval capital of Denmark is located at the end of Roskilde fjord and not far from busy Copenhagen. Once upon a time Roskilde was an old Viking area, but today you will find a modern city with an old town well preserved. Everyone enjoys the lovely Danish countryside which we consider that part of your experience.

We will travel westward from Copenhagen, through farming countryside and small villages, some of which were founded by Vikings more than a thousand years ago. Upon your arrival in Roskilde, which was the capital of Denmark until 1417, you will visit the Viking Ship Museum. This museum contains the remains of 5 Viking vessels which have been salvaged from the bed of Roskilde Fjord, where they were sunk more than a thousand years ago to prevent agressive intruders gaining access to the town from the sea. The museum is fascinating and also has an extension, Museum Island, where visitors can watch shipwrights at work.

After visiting the museum, enjoy a short drive to the Town Square, where a visit will be paid to the twin-spired cathedral, Cathedral Roskilde, which stands out from the Danish landscape. Since 1995 the cathedral has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Roskilde may be centuries past its peak, but it is no sleepy museum town. You will find it filled with a dynamic student community, boutique-filled walking streets, and lots of cafes. This tour will give everyone of any age a feeling of the past as well as the current culture in the Danish countryside.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
