November 6, 2022

Scandinavia offers the world fjords, the Land of the Midnight Sun, the Aurora Borealis, Abba and Ikea. Officially, Scandinavia refers to the countries of Norway, Sweden and Denmark although occasionally Finland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands are included too. It is a refreshingly beautiful, unspoiled area to visit, rich in history, architecture and legends, but it is often viewed as an expensive place to visit with many exclusive hotels. In truth, apart from electricity and alcohol, most costs are in line with London so go ahead and book a break in one of the superb luxury hotels in Scandinavia, feast like a king, shop in moderation and experience these wonderful northern countries for yourself.
