Three Reasons to Visit Scandinavia

A group of countries in the north of Europe, Scandinavia is not one of the most popular holiday destinations, but this collection of beautiful places offers visitors plenty to see and do, and there are a whole variety of reasons why you should add this part of the world to your holiday wish list.

Stunning nature

The Scandinavian countries boast almost unbeatable natural phenomena, including the famous Northern Lights, the mysterious Midnight Sun, and mesmerising Polar Nights, all of which are simply magical to witness, and are sure to be the highlights of your holiday if you are lucky enough to see them.

The scenery across this region is also breath taking, with a combination of gorgeous fir forests, stunning fjords, and seemingly endless wilderness, Scandinavia is the perfect place to feel at one with nature, and take in all that the great outdoors has to offer.

Interesting history

The history of Scandinavia is sure to impress and amaze anyone with a love of researching times gone by, as it has a rich, medieval history which can be seen when looking around the ancient sites and buildings in older parts of the region.

There are plenty of museums, churches, and castles to be explored, all of which can give visitors a glimpse into the past, and stories of Vikings are sure to keep anyone entertained, even if they are not usually interested in history!

Extreme seasons

The Scandinavian countries experience seasons that can very easily be told apart, unlike in the UK, as the winter brings long nights, hours of darkness, and bitterly cold weather, whereas the summer days are long, warm, and full of celebration.

No matter which season you decide to visit in, you are sure to find plenty of activities to keep you busy, whether its embracing winter sports, or enjoying summer festivals, you are guaranteed to have an unforgettable time!
