Discover Scandinavia

Denmark takes in the beautiful Jutland peninsula and over 400 islands, so it’s no wonder that it has a strong seafaring past. This incredible country was the homeland of the Vikings who left their mark across Europe and indeed in Denmark. The historic rune stones of UNESCO-listed Jutland were left by Viking kings, while the island of Funen has Viking burial grounds and the Glavendrup stone which contains Denmark’s longest Viking inscription.

Denmark’s ancient capital, Roskilde, is home to Scandinavia’s first Gothic cathedral, UNESCO-listed Roskilde Cathedral. This is a stark contrast to the modern-day capital of Copenhagen which offers the longest pedestrian street in Europe, Strøget, lined with fashionable shops catering for stylish Scandinavians.

The awe-inspiring scenery is undoubtedly Norway’s biggest attraction, from mesmerising fjords to cascading waterfalls and majestic glaciers, formed during the last Ice Age. During the summer months, the Norwegian coast is bathed in subtle shades of gold as the Midnight Sun reigns, whereas in the winter months, Norway is one of the best places in the world to view the Northern Lights, nature’s great spectacle. UNESCO-listed Geiranger fjord, the traditional village of Flam with its world-famous railway, and Hanseatic Bergen are just some of the delights that Norway has to offer.

Sweden is a fashionable country with beautifully-decorated cafes and public spaces. Two thirds of the country is covered by dense forest, making it a haven for outdoor pursuits including cycling. Viking ruins and burial mounds are a reminder of the country’s Viking past, and in the north, the indigenous Sami people keep nomadic traditions alive. The Swedish capital of Stockholm is spread across fourteen islands. The Old Town, known as Gamla Stan, is one of the best-preserved medieval centres in Europe, and where you’ll find the striking Stockholm Cathedral.

Finland is often visited on escorted tours to Scandinavia. It is one of the northernmost countries in the world, with two thirds of it blanketed by thick woodland. Therefore, it is no surprise that nature is the country’s top attraction.

Hossa National Park offers exciting hiking and cycling trails, along with tranquil lakes, perfect for canoeing and fishing. Finland’s capital, Helsinki, is a fascinating mix of architecture, culture and beautiful green spaces, from parkland to forests and the serene coastline. Key sights in the city include UNESCO-listed Suomenlinna, an impressive 19th-century fortress, the soaring Uspenski Cathedral which dominates the skyline, and the Sibelius Monument dedicated to Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.


Highlights of Scandinavia

  • Copenhagen

    Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and a delight to explore. Tivoli Gardens is a short walk from the magnificent City Hall. The gardens are simply beautiful, and look magical in an evening when they are illuminated by thousands of colourful lights. Han Christian Anderson’s Little Mermaid statue can be found on a rock at the Langelinie promenade, while Amalienborg Palace is home to the Danish royal family and has stunning rococo interiors. Don’t miss the Strøget, the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe, bursting with shops and cafes.

  • Aarhus

    Aarhus on the Jutland peninsula was voted the European Capital of Culture in 2017, and has a host of art galleries, a quaint Latin Quarter, and charming Old Town. The Old Town is located in the heart of Aarhus Botanical Gardens, and has amazing period houses. The white-washed Marselisborg Palace is a royal residence and the 12th-century Gothic Aarhus Cathedral is dedicated to Saint Clement. Nearby are the UNESCO-listed Jelling Rune Stones, dating back to the 10th century.

  • Roskilde

    The ancient city of Roskilde dates back to the Viking age and plays host to the Roskilde Festival, a large rock music event. The UNESCO-listed Roskilde Cathedral is the first Gothic cathedral in Scandinavia, while the Viking Ship Museum houses five excavated Viking ships. Roskilde Royal Mansion in the heart of the city is a former royal Baroque mansion noted for its vivid yellow stone.

  • Funen

    Funen is the second largest island off the coast of Denmark and often referred to as the “garden island” due to its verdant hills dotted with thatched farmhouses. Odense is the main city on the island and was the birthplace of Hans Christian Anderson. The countryside is where you’ll find the majestic Egeskov Castle with its beautifully-landscaped gardens, and close by is the scenic South Funen archipelago encircled by one of Denmark’s longest hiking routes.

  • Geiranger

    UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord is arguably the jewel of the Norwegian fjords, renowned for its snow-capped peaks and cascading waterfalls, including the incredible Seven Sisters. The village of Geiranger has grown into one of Norway’s most popular tourist resorts and is gateway to the famous Troll’s Path, a series of thrilling hairpin bends.

  • Flam

    Flam is nestled at the tip of Aurlandsfjord. In the 19th-century, royals were attracted by the salmon fishing opportunities in the Flam River. Today, tourists are drawn to the village for the famous Flam railway which winds its way through stunning mountain scenery to the Hardangervidda plateau.

  • Bergen

    Hanseatic Bergen is set against a backdrop of seven majestic mountains. The funicular to the top of Mount Floien offers panoramic views of the city, while the colourful UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf with its characteristic buildings is one of the most iconic sights. The city also offers an array of museums and art galleries, housing works by Picasso, Tidemand and Gude.

  • North Cape

    The dramatic North Cape is the northernmost point of mainland Europe and easily reached from Honningsvag. The iconic globe monument makes the end point of Europe and is obligatory for photographs. Experience the mesmerising Northern Lights or glow of the Midnight Sun from this spectacular location, or learn more about early expeditions to the North Cape at the museum.

  • Oslo

    Oslo is the lively capital of Norway surrounded by soaring mountains. The city is blessed with a large number of parks, including picturesque Frogner Park, making it one of the greenest cities in the world. Other highlights include the Vigeland Sculpture Park which displays the works of Gustav Vigeland, and the interesting Viking Ship Museum which houses 9th-century Viking ships. The Akershus Fortress, a former prison, is also worth a visit.

  • Stockholm

    The Swedish capital of Stockholm is spread across 14 islands but is very easy to explore as most of the islands are connected by bridges. The old town, Gamla Stan, is one of the best-preserved medieval city centres in Europe and overlooked by the spectacular Royal Palace. There is a host of restaurants, cafes and bars giving Gamla Stan a unique character.

  • Helsinki

    Finland’s capital, Helsinki, is situated on a peninsula in the Gulf of Finland. Overlooking the harbour is the red-brick Uspenski Cathedral, while in the centre is the bustling Market Square. The UNESCO-listed Suomenlinna, a 19th-century fortress, is spread across six inter-linked islands with a range of walking trails. The King’s Gate drawbridge and Suomenlinna Museum are popular attractions.
