Scandinavia has recently become a true dream destination for American tourists. You shouldn’t be amazed when you’ll hear some of your friends discuss the fjords! Let’s reveal the reasons behind the recent hype behind traveling to Northern Europe.

Americans Love to Explore Northern Europe!

For many, it may still look quite unusual that the Northern Countries have become. However, according to the statistics of National Travel and Tourism Office, Scandinavia has seen a significant increase in the number of American tourists during the last few years! This increase in US citizens visiting Scandinavia will look just casual after you‘ll get to know this gorgeous region.

The Region of Natural Wonders

The very first thing why so many people fall in love with Scandinavia is the breathtaking Nature! Some fjords over 3000 feet tall and 9 miles long are ready to become your favorite hiking track, not to mention amazing waterfalls, hidden mountain lakes, and stunning landscapes that you’ll see during your trip. Island-hopping adventures across the rocky Stockholm Archipelago while observing the mighty fortresses and colorful summerhouses are sure to become your another favorite! Or have you ever dreamt of visiting the Northern Pole? You will be riding a dog-sleigh across the winter wonderland of Lapland right to the Santa Claus’ doormat!


Fair-Haired And Kind

One thing is for sure – you will meet some fascinating locals here! Just don’t be disappointed that you probably won’t run into some 7 feet tall red-bearded Vikings. Although they can be shy at the start, the fair-haired Scandinavians are known for their extreme tolerance and warm welcomes. You will find English speakers everywhere, so don’t shy away from chatting with some locals while tasting your salmon or enjoying the local drinks at the bar.

The group is the Way

Small to medium-sized groups are considered as an ideal choice to travel to the countries located so far away. This way you will forge strong bonds with fellow travelers 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.
