Date: 19-21 April 2023
Cost: 6.600 SEK
Size of group: 19 (2 seats left)

Travel to Denmark: Closest major airport is Århus with connection to London, Stockholm and Copenhagen. Billund, a bit further, has more connections.
Travel in rental cars: Large rental cars will be hired from major rental companies. Four people per car. One volunteer per car is needed to drive. If a group of four is travelling together they are free to organise the booking themselves. People travelling in own car is alright as long as it is corresponded and if the car can host more people there will be a reduction in price.
If people need to travel to/from other airports and 4 people per rental car can’t be achieved, an additional fee may apply.
Booking: Is made via lars(@)bunkertours.se and after that a booking fee of 1000 SEK to secure a place.
Cost: Included 3-4 star hotels and rental cars, both with a rather high price-tag. Budget is calculated a bit high and can hopefully be reduced if all seats are taken on the tour.
