VDVA Tours 2019 (English language page)

Our 2019 convention takes us to Sweden via Denmark. As usual, we offer hotels and transport and we can take up to about 50 people.

In addition we will again run our “short tours” (on long weekends). On these tours you will have to book your own hotels and make all your own other travel arrangements (i.e. getting there and back). We sometimes recommend a hotel. The tour price includes all depot visits, charters and sightseeing walks (where we offer them) and often also our welcome dinner. We are happy to accomodate non-members only if there are seats available (members also get a discount!). Here we always travel as a small group (15-25 people) .

Our tours will only take place if we receive enough bookings!
