The mystical swirl of gold and green lights of the aurora borealis, a sun that never sets, winding fjords and glaciers – Scandinavia encapsulates the wilderness of the great north with a little bit of Norse mythology and Viking folklore.

Known as the final frontier of Europe, it is an outdoor playground: in the summer months the sky stays milky white all night allowing for midnight dips in refreshingly cool lakes, endless hikes, dancing around maypoles to celebrate mid-summer, rock festivals and a city scene that stays up until dawn and when even museums and galleries close after midnight.

Winter brings snowstorms tempting visitors to chase the northern lights, or look for Santa’s reindeers; and a time to embrace the Danish concept of hygge, by cosying up under a blanket and spending the day reading in warmth.
