One of the most underrated places to visit in Europe is Scandinavia. Hidden amidst large mountains, these countries have been largely ignored by traveling websites. Sure, there are challenges in visiting places like Norway and Denmark when there are money problems involved, and they are not the friendliest places in the world to visit.
So, go on and plan a trip. Once you are in Scandinavia, you are sure to fall in love. Why? Let’s take a look.
The Norwegian Fjords
There’s something about giant ice structures that stare you down and offer you humility. There’s a reason why the Norwegian fjords have been depicted in every single media ever since, the beginning of time.
Heck, go back to epic poems, and you are sure to find the fjords hiding in some crevice there too. One of most majestic sights in the world, this can be the backdrop for that one photo you need to click.
The Denmark Life
Marked as one of the happiest countries in the world, Denmark is the place to visit when you are feeling down on your luck. It has some of the most free-minded, free-flowing sex cultures in the world, and has people who adore you.
Sit yourself down in a Danish bar with a pint and reminiscence and the good-old days with the people around you. You would not be left with a cause to be disappointed.
Sit yourself down in one of the beaches of Faroe islands to see how they eat. Situated by the ocean, the Faroe island has winds so strong that even your inland windows would get salt everywhere.
But, that’s not the main point. The main point remains that this is a culture that keeps on giving once you see it for yourself.
The community hunts whales to survive, has some of the most robust people around and still will serve you fermented fish in the evening.
The people of Island
If you think hunting whales for eating is harsh, look up and visit Iceland. This small volcanic island is a photographer’s dream come true with active volcanoes available almost everywhere.
However, it is best known for people who literally fought eruptions of lava by pouring water on it until it quieted down. Till date, you can see molten lava at some places.
The northern lights
Whether it is the desolate fjords of Norway or the hills of Iceland, you can see the Northern Lights from many places in Scandinavia. This remains one of those things that need to be experienced alone.
One of the most beautiful sights in the world, these are guaranteed to make you feel the magic that all the epic writers have felt.
And that’s it. Plan a trip with your friends and visit the most overlooked part of Northern Europe. Here, nature marries technology. With amazing places like Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Denmark, and Finland, if snow and character are what you seek, Scandinavia will not disappoint. In fact, you will get more than you ever bargained for.
