Why do Australians name Northern Europe as their dream destination?

Posted by Tomas Papinigis  |  February 19, 2018

It might have happened that you’ve recently scrolled through a post of a local blogger writing about his journey in Scandinavia. Or a friend of yours has recently taken off a plane from Denmark. Let’s reveal the reasons behind the recent hype behind traveling to Northern Europe.

Australians Love to Explore Northern Europe!

For many, it may still look unusual that the countries of Northern Europe could charm an Aussie so well. However, according to the results of the recent survey published by the Australian Government Tourism Research department, the number of Australians who have recently visited Northern Europe has gone through the roof! The dramatic surge in the number of Australian visitors will look casual after you‘ll get to know this gorgeous region.

The Land of Many Wonders

Let‘s start with nature! It‘s simply staggering! You’ll find yourself hiking through the tip-tops of some fjords over 3000 feet tall and 9 miles long while admiring waterfalls, hidden lakes, and stunning landscapes. You will island-hop across the rocky Stockholm Archipelago while observing the mighty fortresses and colorful summerhouses. Or Even you will be in a dog-sleigh, riding across the winter wonderland of Lapland right to the Santa Claus’ doormat.

Kind People of the North

It’s a fact – you will meet some fabulous locals here! The only disappointment is that you probably won’t run into some 7 feet tall red-bearded Vikings. Although sometimes shy at the beginning, the fair-haired Scandinavians are known to be extremely tolerant and welcoming people. Everybody speaks English so feel free to chat with some locals while tasting your Gravlaks or enjoying local drinks at the bar.

Group is the Way

It is no secret that a trip in a land far away is best fulfilled by traveling along with small to medium sized groups. This way you will make new friends within your fellow mates and seize the most of the opportunities that are available exclusively to the groups such as enriched knowledge about the countries, guided tours and personal attention from the guides.

A journey across Northern Europe is usually a lengthy one. To exercise the most of it, be careful while picking the tour operator, as it will have a crucial impact on the quality of your stay.
