Travel Tips for Your Scandinavia Trip
What are the Scandinavian countries?

From majestic fjords to architecturally stunning cities, Scandinavia offers a mix of jaw-dropping nature and cosmopolitan culture. This northern European region is made up of Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. Finland and Iceland are not Scandinavian countries, though they form part of the Nordic region along with Sweden, Norway, and Denmark.

What language is spoken in Scandinavia?

Each Scandinavian country has its own official language, from Swedish to Norwegian and Danish. The vast majority of Scandinavians also speak excellent English, making language barriers practically non-existent for travelers.

When is the best time to visit Scandinavia?

The best time to visit depends on your interests and tolerance for crowds and weather, though summer, June through August, is most popular for its warmer temperatures.

Summer offers long days and mild weather, ideal for exploring cities and nature. While crowds are larger, endless daylight lets you enjoy plenty of sightseeing and temperatures that range from the 60s to 70s Fahrenheit. Spring and fall see fewer tourists, and you can expect crisp 50 to 60-degree weather. Spring offers blossoming flora, while fall showcases autumn foliage. The Northern Lights also start appearing in September.

For winter adventures, visit from November to March to enjoy dog sledding, skiing, and tracking the Aurora Borealis. Scandinavian winters are dark and cold, but with proper attire, you can enjoy snow sports and the holiday ambiance.
