Explore the nature of Norway
There are quite literally hundreds of other locations that you can visit that are just like this. Another extremely exciting destination is Trolltunga, which literally means troll’s tongue. It is a rock that extends past a high cliff face that you need to hike for 10 hours to get to. It is quite possibly the best view that you are likely to see. Other great places can be found anywhere and sometimes in the places you would least expect, so don’t be afraid to get off the beaten track to find something new and exciting.
Explore the cities of Sweden
Sweden is another great place in Scandinavia to visit and I find the cities absolutely incredible there. In particular, I love Stockholm and Gothenburg, which have a great mix of culture and a beautiful setting that is absolutely unique. Stockholm has to be one of my favourite cities on earth, especially with its many bridges and islands, as well as incredibly old and beautiful buildings. You absolutely need to enjoy a boat ride through all the islands of the city, which is very interesting and full of history. The old city or “Gamla Stan” as it is known, is also an extremely pretty place with very old buildings and cobbled streets. Here you can easily access the main attractions of the city, like the Vasa Museum, Skansen or the Stockholm Palace, where you should definitely watch the changing of the guard. This is an unusual and interesting experience that I would recommend to anyone.
It also has a very healthy dose of nature too, which I love. There really is nothing quite like heading out and exploring the thousands of small islands that lie on the Stockholm archipelago. This is an amazing place to visit in the summertime as many of the people from the city rent or visit their summer houses here.
Copenhagen is one of the most pretty and liveable cities on the entire planet and it is an absolute pleasure to visit. It is absolutely beautiful with colourful houses, green parks and canals. The Danes also have a great cafe and food culture, with many great restaurants, bars and cafes. Hiring a bike is a must and in my opinion, it is the best city going for bike riding. Bikes are a way of life in Denmark and there are not so many cars in the city centre itself. The bike paths are well planned and everywhere, and the city is small enough that you can reach anywhere on your bike within a few minutes. It is also great to ride along the canals and enjoy the views.
If you are looking for something a bit different, you can visit Freetown Christiania, which is a hippy commune which has claimed itself to be autonomous. Here you can see interesting colourful buildings and live like a hippy for the day.
There is only one negative that I can see about Copenhagen and that is the fact that it rains quite a lot, but don’t worry, the upside is that it is one of the most stylish cities in the world and you are sure to find an incredibly stylish raincoat there that you won’t find anywhere else.
