A Vacation Package through Scandinavia – Denmark, Sweden, Norway

This tour is set up to make the most of the time in the countries of Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Taking a night flight and arriving in Copenhagen in the early morning you maximize the days and lower the hotel costs. This allows seventeen full days and only fifteen nights. The time difference from Las Vegas to Copenhagen is nine hours. The tour is built on three desires, to perform classical choral music concerts in Europe, to facilitate a cultural exchange as ambassadors of Nevada and to sightsee and shop. The Myron Heaton Chorale is known for its international touring, as well as, its great singing. With this tour, both will be enjoyed.
