short jump from mainland Europe, Scandinavia offers city experiences to rival Paris and London, along with endless opportunities to get out into the wild and experience nature. Whether you want a short break or an outdoor adventure, you can forget following the crowds; to bring you the ultimate hidden gems in Scandinavia.
The countryside in Tromsø
Offering one of the best places to catch the northern lights, Tromsø is a must-visit for those looking for a trip to remember. While the nighttime provides ample star-gazing, you can spend your days hanging at with hundreds of huskies (and puppies!) at a local sanctuary – the perfect preparation for a night of wonder.
With 14 islands and 57 bridges, Stockholm’s waterways are one of the city’s most underrated attractions, and there’s no better way to enjoy them than with a paddle tour. Spend an afternoon taking in architectural highlights and the range of atmospheres and scenery that make this city so unique.
The Little Mermaid Statue in Copenhagen
Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale, the Little Mermaid Statue in Copenhagen is site to seek out on your visit. During summer the statue can attract large crowds, so stop by just before the sun sets to enjoy some time alone. After following her gaze out to sea (and perhaps taking a selfie or two) spend the rest of the day exploring Copenhagen like a true local – by bike. Make sure to stop at a famous pølsevogn stand (Denmark’s signature take on the hot dog) to try the city’s most delicious snack.
