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


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


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


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


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.

Experience Scandinavia in Autumn

Discover the enchanting beauty of Scandinavia in autumn, where the region transforms into a vibrant tapestry of red, orange, and gold. As the summer crowds wane, the serene landscapes of Sweden, Norway, and Denmark come alive with the crisp, fresh air and the gentle rustling of leaves. Wander through the picturesque streets of Stockholm, marvel at the majestic fjords of Norway, or explore the charming countryside of Denmark. Autumn in Scandinavia offers a unique blend of natural splendour and cultural richness, making it the perfect time to visit.

Autumn is also the season of hygge in Scandinavia, a Danish concept that embodies cosiness and comfort. Embrace the warmth of Scandinavian hospitality as you sip on hot beverages in cosy cafes, indulge in seasonal culinary delights, and partake in local traditions and festivals. From the breathtaking Northern Lights in Norway to the serene forests of Sweden, autumn in Scandinavia promises an unforgettable experience filled with scenic beauty, cultural immersion, and a touch of magic.

Hagaparken, Sweden
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.
