Holidays in the Nordic countries
There are five countries and three autonomous regions in the Nordic Region. The countries are Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland, and the autonomous regions are Åland, the Faroe Islands and Greenland. Many things are similar in our Nordic countries, such as the culture and in many cases the language. But there are also many differences that make travelling around the Nordic countries extremely interesting.
Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland
Our own country and our closest neighbours have a lot to offer. There is everything from beaches in the summer to ski resorts in the winter. There are plenty of natural areas for both outdoor and more adventurous activities, and for those who are more keen on a city weekend, there are our fine capitals: Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen and Helsinki.
