    Scandinavia & the Nordics map
    With over 188,000 lakes and 70% of the country covered in forest, Finland offers some of the most spectacular scenery and cleanest air in the world. In winter, the sea freezes and the north and centre of the country are covered in a blanket of dazzling snow, creating a magical winter wonderland. Zip across the ice on snowmobiles, drive a pack of sled dogs and meet Father Christmas in Lapland.
    The glassy surface of unfathomably deep fjords, sheer ice age cliff faces and thundering waterfalls, Norway’s natural wonders are a sight to behold. Modern innovation meets tradition in the cities of Oslo and Bergen; learn about the Viking legacy, dine on delicious local seafood and see the abstract architecture of the Oslo Opera House.
    Denmark’s most famous export is perhaps Hygge, the art of cosy living, and the capital Copenhagen is certainly a great place to experience it! Brimming with charming canals, organic eateries and foodie markets plus stunning architecture, the city is wonderful for a short break.
    Grand turreted palaces, pristine forests and a colourful archipelago. Beautiful Sweden has a lot to offer. Explore Stockholm’s historic streets, walking beside the picturesque canals. Stop off for a traditional Fika coffee break with cinnamon buns in a cosy coffee shop.
