Why visit the Nordic countries

You have to see it to believe it. The beautiful nature combined with the seasonally amazing lights makes your experiences here unforgettable.

The Midnight Sun in the summer and the majestic Northern Lights in the winter months attract more and more tourists from all over the world.

Other reasons for visiting the Nordic countries are the outstanding modern architecture, excellent museums, internationally acclaimed restaurants and imaginative solutions for 21st-century urban living.

Epic expanses of wild nature like lakes, forests, volcanoes, lovely beaches, rugged fjords, archipelagoes and a lot of pure air are also what you find in the Nordic countries.

Whether you are in a car or coach, by boat or train, the Nordic countries of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland and Greenland have a variety of sights and scenery to beguile the visitor.

 
When to visit the Nordic countries

In the Nordic countries, there are many things to explore in all seasons. There are nice warm summers with daylight from 18-24 hours with wonderful possibilities to take a cruise, hiking or visit the many attractions the Nordic countries have to offer.

In autumn the forested lands can be the most beautiful of all, as the birches and other trees display a glorious array of colours.

To visit the Nordic in spring is quite an experience because you here can watch the nature getting very green awaking after a long winter. The temperature is rising, and the many festivals you can visit here are beginning now their season.

The winters can be cold, but there are a wealth of things to do like skiing, dog sledging, snowmobile safaris, stay at a snow hotel or visiting Santa Claus in Rovaniemi in Finland, not to forget the majestic Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis, as it also is called.
