Scandinavia, a region in Northern Europe including Sweden, Norway and Denmark, tends to attract both nature lovers and city lovers alike.
Nature lovers come to Scandinavia to explore its natural beauty, housed in its many national parks. With expansive forests, lakes, waterfalls, glaciers, and volcanoes, the parks offer great hiking, kayaking and glacier walking. Along the coasts, travelers can sail around the rugged fjords and tiny islands, taking in the beautiful sites and the invigorating fresh air.
City lovers come to explore the vibrant capitals of Scandinavia. These cosmopolitan cities offer internationally acclaimed restaurants, lively nightlife, outstanding modern architecture, and excellent museums.
Travellers can visit at any time of year, but must be prepared for the stark contrast of seasons. In the long, cold winters, the sun makes only brief appearances – if at all. Despite the cold, there is plenty to do – Skiing, sledding, ice fishing, gazing at the mystical Northern Lights. The summertime brings very long days, ideal for being outdoors, hiking, cycling, exploring the urban life, and more!
