Discover the Wonder that is Scandinavia
The Northern European region of Scandinavia includes Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland. A region of vast expanses, rugged wilderness, stylish cities and remote forests, it’s a place of overwhelming pleasure. It’s also famously home to the majestic aurora borealis, otherwise known as the “Northern Lights”.
With spectacular coastlines, picturesque fjords and cliffs teaming with seabirds, Scandinavia offers some of Europe’s best natural sites for hiking, cruising, and kayaking. The Nordic capitals are just as captivating - vibrant, modern and musical. Live music is everywhere in the cities and, backed by incredible architecture and world-class restaurants, Scandinavia is city-living like you’ve never seen before. The beer’s pretty good too!
