Sustainable tours in Scandinavia

Scandinavia was once home to the Vikings – famed for seeking distant lands with green, fertile soil for farming and prime conditions for our people to thrive (let’s ignore the violence for a moment!). Now, on our sustainable tours in Scandinavia, you’ll see that we’ve calmed down somewhat; yet with less raiding and more saving our region, we’re still passionate to work and maintain our nature for the benefit of all.

Whilst it may feel like we’re showing off…we sort of are! All three of our destinations have been awarded the European Green Capital since it began over ten years ago, so it’s fair to say we’ve earned such a humblebrag! It started with Stockholm in 2010 before Copenhagen took the torch in 2014 and most recently, in 2019, Oslo has completed our trio of cities worth visiting for some sustainable inspiration.

OURWAY Tours’ home base of Stockholm shows forward-thinking city planning with a push for more cyclists and fewer cars on the streets supporting already established inner-city initiatives. Stockholm’s environmental attitude has sustained some of the cleanest drinking water on the planet. With organic food consumption one of the highest in the world, you’re sure to find a tasty and clean culinary experience all while enjoying the green and blue of the parks and waters the city has to offer.

Finding yourself in Oslo, the cool fresh air of the Fjord City will help refresh your attitude to the environment as you see a city embracing new technology in constructing its buildings, transport infrastructure and overall quality of life of its citizens. The subtle whir of its electric buses, trams and cars along with its immaculate streets and great pride in public spaces will inspire whilst you enjoy all Norway’s proud capital has to offer.

Last, but by no means least is Copenhagen – in fact, it’s arguably got the MOST ambitious carbon-reduction plan for a European capital city. Aiming to be carbon neutral by 2025, such projects as biomass burning and offshore wind farms have already led Denmark to provide 40% of its electricity via more sustainable processes. As for travel? So. Many. Bicycles! In fact, half the city’s people use them every day!

Amongst the historic rivalry that has defined us Scandinavians over the centuries – Viking blood remember! – we’re proud to say we still challenge one another. Only now, our sustainable tours in Scandinavia will show you that the challenge of Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen is to be responsible and self-sufficient modern cities. This is the kind of healthy competition that the region and, indeed, the planet demands and one that OURWAY Tours is excited to show you!
