Holidays in Scandinavia
In Scandinavia you’ll find countless lakes, beautiful beaches, endless forests and fascinating cities.
Welcome to the high north of Europe
The endless expanses of Scandinavia extend as far as the eye can see, and you won’t find many tourists there, even in the high season. These magnificent landscapes are a paradise for travellers of a different stripe. With your own car, you can stay independent and visit a wide variety of natural scenery. Whether you spend your holiday in Denmark, Norway, Sweden or Finland, in the summer months you can take advantage of the long daylight hours. And these countries also offer interesting destinations in the wintertime, from the inviting capital of Denmark to the extensive ski areas of Norway.
Holidays in Denmark
You’ll find a wealth of attractions on Denmark’s largest island, Zealand, including Copenhagen and Roskilde. The Danish capital offers fascinating architectural sights such as the royal Amalienborg Palace, as well as a charming cosmopolitan atmosphere. But the highlights of Copenhagen are just one of the many attractive options you can choose from on your holiday in the region. In Denmark you don’t have to travel far to find endless beaches of white sand and pristine waters. This southernmost country in Scandinavia is home to over 400 islands, nearly all of which offer the chance to enjoy a relaxing holiday.
Holidays in Norway
The beauty of Norway’s natural scenery is unparalleled. Here you’ll find magnificent fjords, idyllic towns with colourful wooden houses, and snow-covered mountain landscapes. Breathtaking vistas are guaranteed. From colonies of seabirds to whale watching on the islands along the Gulf Stream and the moose and reindeer in the inland areas, Norway is home to an abundance of natural scenery and easy-going people – a unique paradise for travellers in the land of the midnight sun.
Holidays in Sweden
Sweden’s wealth of natural scenery is virtually untouched by humans, making it an ideal destination for fans of the northern lights. The country also offers attractions such as the largely intact wreck of the Vasa, which sank in 1628, and the impressive architecture and pleasant atmosphere of the capital, Stockholm. You can visit the magnificent natural scenery of Sarek National Park, take a boat tour on the Göta Canal, or go skiing under the midnight sun in the northernmost ski area in the world.
Holidays in Finland
This “land of a thousand lakes” is a fascinating destination in every season. With its wide expanses of unpopulated forests and costal landscapes, as well as its sauna culture, Finland offers a wealth of interesting options for wellness holidays and for travellers interested in fishing and cross-country skiing. Travellers to Finland should also visit the nation’s capital, Helsinki, which is known for its buildings in the style of Nordic Classicism.
