Holidays to Scandinavia & The Baltics

The countries of Scandinavia boast some of the world's most vibrant cities, along with spectacular mountains, deep fjords, and verdant forests teeming with wildlife. The land of husky-drawn sledges, reindeer, unending days under the midnight sun and perennial nights - Scandinavia is what memorable holidays are made of. Explore the mesmerising sights of the Arctic Circle by train, feast with the Sami people, and get swept away by the beauty of the Northern Lights.

From a high-altitude journey on the Bergen Railway, we uncover delights old and new in Scandinavia. Eternally elegant cities and modern towns collide with captivating traditions and dynamic heritage, while natural landscapes offer up a veritable banquet for the eyes.

Feast like a Viking in Norway, and experience some of nature's finest work - from the never-setting Midnight Sun to the magical dance of the Northern Lights.

Our Guide to Scandinavia
The Northern Lights

The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis to be precise, occur across the Arctic region and are best visible throughout winter (which lasts longer at these high latitudes), when there are more hours of darkness and when the sky is clear of cloud cover.

This fabled event has long been a part of Scandinavian folklore and occurs when particles released by the sun, in the form of solar winds, collide with the particles present in the earth's magnetosphere, causing a superb blend of vivid colours.

The Northern Lights
Best time to see the Northern Lights
January to March

GOOD

These wintry months are considered to be prime time to view the lights, clear skies and a fresh blanket of crisp white snow are perfect conditions for spotting this elusive wonder.

April to August

POOR

The arrival of summer signifies the coming of the 'Midnight Sun', making the Lights almost impossible to spot as the north of Scandinavia is in almost constant light.

September to October

MODERATE

It may be possible to catch a glimpse of the lights in the reflective waters of Scandinavia's icy lakes during the autumn.

November to December

GOOD

With the landscape changing dramatically and the nights becoming longer it is a brilliant to view the Northern Lights, although some cloud cover can shield the display.

Land of the Midnight Sun

The Midnight Sun is a truly spellbinding natural phenomenon. Best seen in June and July, this incredible occurrence is due to a tilt in the earth's axis and means that the sun never truly sets in northern Scandinavia in summer.

Instead, it hangs low and resolute in the sky, casting out an ethereal glow and painting the surrounding landscapes with enchanting, sunset hues of gold, red and pink.

“A very well organised and enjoyable holiday, accommodation in hotels and on board ship was clean and comfortable. The experience was enhanced by being part of a friendly group of like minded people. The balance of organised excursions and free time meant you didn’t feel that you were just part of the group.

“Very well organised trip - rep was one step ahead of any problems - one morning we woke to pouring rain and we were walking to the port to go on a cruise to Flam. By the time we finished breakfast our rep Charles had organised and paid for taxis to make sure we arrived dry and ready to enjoy the next stage of our tour - excellent service

“An enjoyable trip with a varied itinerary and spectacular scenery. We had the added bonus of an enthusiastic and friendly tour manager and a great group of fellow travellers. A lot of time was spent on trains and coaches, more of the latter than expected, but there were constant wonderful views - even when raining!

Escorted Holiday Cruising Sailing Through Europes Winter Beauty

18/08/2023 · By

Cruising Europe during the wintertime is a vastly different experience to cruising in summer, and for anyone who normally takes a cruise in summertime, there are some big differences to be aware of. It’s a magical time of year that brings with it some unique experiences. Yes, it’s cold, and, yes, your packing list is going to be longer than the shorts and swimmers of your summer trips, but there’s a very singular beauty to Europe in winter that can’t be matched by any other time of year.
