Scandinavia Holidays

Northern Europe’s Scandinavian countries boast breathtaking natural surroundings, fascinating culture and abundant style year round, topped off by spellbinding displays of the northern lights during winter. Offering a smorgasbord of outdoor activities whatever the weather, plus an extraordinary collection of ‘cool places to stay’ including the world-famous Icehotel.

As pioneers of tourism to the Nordic region, we’ve been arranging unforgettable holidays to Iceland, Sweden, Finland and Norway for 38 years. We know just the place for a relaxing weekend escape, where best to see the northern lights or where to find hidden gems. You can be sure that we’ll pour our expertise and passion into making your Scandinavian holiday truly amazing.

By definition, Finland isn’t a Scandinavian country, but it is very closely linked to its geographic neighbours through a colourful history, vibrant culture, and most of all, the people. Similarly Iceland is part of the broader Nordic region sharing a Norse heritage.

Summer or Winter?

Summer stretches out invitingly thanks to the seemingly endless daylight hours. This beautiful part of the world offers travellers the opportunity to revel in the great outdoors and there’s a variety of ways to explore, from self drives and independent travel to coastal cruises, island-hopping adventures, countryside villa escapes and railway journeys through epic scenery.

And when it comes to winter, Scandinavians know how to do this time of the year in style. Cosy log cabins, warming saunas, snow-clad landscapes to explore by snowmobile, husky sledding excursions, and of course there’s delicious local cuisine to top it off! Plus there’s the added bonus of the northern lights. We offer a wide range of winter breaks here to suit all interests.
