The southernmost of the Scandinavian countries, Denmark combines seamlessly its modern Scandinavian architecture with the fairy tale charm and special atmosphere of the old picturesque towns. Though most tourists visit Copenhagen, the truth is that Denmark has much more to offer to the curious traveler. So what else is there to discover in Denmark besides its beautiful capital? Let’s find out!

Norway attracts tons of visitors and it’s easy to see why. Astonishing fjords, snow-capped mountains, the famous Northern Lights, beautiful coastal settlements… The list goes on and on, however, the typical visitor is not only looking to experience the breathtaking Norwegian landscape by engaging in a variety of outdoor activities. Art and cultural tourism are just as popular in Norway, proving that this country is so much more than just stunning nature!

It is true that a description such as “the perfect blend of wonderful natural attractions and fascinating urban experiences” would apply to many places in Scandinavia. Make no mistake, however, each one of the Scandinavian countries has its own identity and distinct character, with Sweden not being an exception. Amazing scenery and rich cultural heritage, lively cities, towns of elegant charm, exciting food scenes, all with a distinct Swedish touch. Sweden is a country you will surely come to love!
