The driving distances on our Scandinavian tours vary a lot from day to day. The longest day in Norway is Geiranger – Oslo when we travel approx. 10-11 hours including several stops for restrooms, lunch, and sightseeing.

No hiking is involved, you can opt out of walking too much, but must be able to get in/out of the bus, ferries, etc. on your own. We need to know in advance if they need to carry any medical aids to arrange proper storage and other logistics.
