Scandanavia tours anymore?

Our Viking cruise (was going to be our first cruise) was cancelled for June and we are looking for a land tour for next fall instead. I see that the are is listed as a RS tour option but not details or itinerary. Does anyone know if RS goes there anymore? And does anyone happen to have an itinerary from their trip?
Thanks, Kim

Yes RS runs Scandinavia tours. All tours prior to October 1st are cancelled. Thus if a tour is a spring/summer tour and does not have any October-December dates they drop off the website. The last tours of Scandinavia are (were) in September- thus the tour page for those are no longer up as they have all been cancelled.

He normally has 2 Tours: Best of Scandinavia in 14 days and Best of St Petersburg, Tallinn & Helsinki in 9 days. Again all 2020 tours to those locations have been cancelled.

2021 Tours have not been scheduled- and it is anticipated they will not be scheduled for a good long while.

Thanks for the info. I totally get why the itinerary was dropped but for those of us bored at home wanting to dream of future travel I wish they had left them up. :)

I took this last year! And my daughter's scrapbook of our fun trip is one of those posted in another comment. Every trip, of course, is different but it will be a fun one whenever you can go.

Thanks everyone for the great links. It was especially helpful to see the trip scrapbooks. Looks like a great trip!

I was booked to go on the RS Scandinavia tour this summer in August, which of course got cancelled. So I have been keeping an eye on the tour pages, and did note that once all the tours were cancelled, the Scandinavia tour page went blank. I just checked today and the RS tour pages have now been updated, indicating that they do indeed plan on running the Scandinavia tour (and many others) in 2021. There are of course no dates or prices listed yet, and registration for 2021 tours may not open up as early as usual, as they are still not even accepting new registration for the remaining 2020 tours beyond Sept. 30th that have not yet been cancelled. They have currently posted the same itinerary as the 2020 tour, but I can bet that is subject to change as we get closer to the time. I have been wondering if Sweden might get dropped if they don't improve their numbers to equal that of the other Scandinavian countries. Sweden has not been included in the "bubble" with the other countries yet, but hopefully they will turn it around by next year. My plan is to take this tour next summer - Nature (and Rick) willing!
