Any recs for Scandinavia tours for solo female traveler?

I'd like to go to Denmark, Norway and Sweden but I'll be traveling alone. I'd ideally like a guided tour of sorts...and a place where I can have my own room. I'm looking for about 14 days or so...any ideas? Thanks in advance!!!

Not cheap but very friendly to single travelers. When considering costs, note that airfare is not included. To get a good idea of what a trip is like, read some of the entries on his scrapbook page.http://tours.ricksteves.com/tours10/scr09_archive.cfm

I like the Insight Vacations tours over most others, including Rick Steves. Here is their site: http://www.insightvacations.com/us/

They have a couple Scandinavia tours: Grand Tour of Scandinavia http://www.insightvacations.com/us/i...our_id=2267729
and

Spectacular Scandinavia and its Fjords http://www.insightvacations.com/us/i...our_id=2268354

Insight is a sister company to Trafalgar, but is a bit more upscale, and its hotels are usally centrally located.

Hi,
I did the Insight Spectacular Scandinavia and its Fjords a year or so ago. It was really good. There were several singles on the trip and they all seemed to fit in with the couples etc. There was a good mix of country and city and, although the weather did not always cooperate (we were snowed in at Geiranger Fjord and had to put the coach on a ferry and go further down the fjord to continue) I loved it. The coach was the most comfortable I have been in and the tour manager really went the extra mile to give us a good time.

Have you went on trip yet? I am also looking to go there - also want a tour company - but hate paying single supplements. I have always went with a company that does a match - and have met wonderful people. Is this something you would be interested in?
