Scandinavia holidays tailor-made
The Northern European Scandinavian countries of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland boast breathtaking natural surroundings, fascinating culture and great city life year round. A smorgasbord of outdoor delights whatever the weather - snow and ice or sun and sea - there is something for everyone whether you want a weekend break, luxury romantic holiday, fun and adventure, a special visit to see Santa or a self-drive with a difference.
Winter is the archetypal season here and Scandinavia, and Lapland in particular, becomes a true wonderland during winter. Base yourself in a cosy log cabin or the world’s coolest hotel, the Icehotel, and explore the snow-clad landscapes by snowmobile, husky sledding excursion and reindeer safari. The dark winter nights also afford the best opportunities to witness the Northern Lights.
Conversely, summer stretches out invitingly in Scandinavia thanks to the seemingly endless daylight hours delivered by the Midnight Sun and there's a variety of ways to discover the countryside, from self drives and independent travel to coastal cruises, island-hopping adventures and railway journeys through epic scenery.
