Media publications such as Forbes, the Telegraph and the Huffington Post have all posted recent articles highlighting the top happiest countries in the World, which all see Denmark clinching the number one spot. MrLuggage.com take a look at the best way to travel across Scandinavia and what sights not to miss.
Four of the countries to reach the top ten list were Scandinavian. Denmark was placed number one, Norway was at number two, Sweden came in at number five and Finland made it to number seven. Given the recent TV programme, Scandamania, this is no surprise. The Nordic society promote gender equality, egalitarian and wide benefit levels, plus they have some breath-taking views and sights.
The easiest way to visit all four Scandinavian countries would be by rail, with services such as ScandinavianRail, EuroRail or RailEurope which enable visitors to stop off at each of the countries as well as taking in the scenery that the Scandinavia has to offer. Alternatively, hiring a car and driving around the four kingdoms provides more freedom to explore, plus there are self-drive tours that make driving around Scandinavia even easier.
Things to do…
Denmark is home to a number of amusement parks, historical sites and is packed full of culture. Copenhagen is well-know for the exquisite food and shopping, and although it is expensive it is one place that is definitely worth stopping off at. Cycling is also a huge part of the Danes culture and is a great way to explore; there are safe cycle paths in every town so for people who aren’t comfortable with cycling on roads they don’t have to worry.
Finland is known for being one of the best places in the World for seeing the Northern Lights and this attracts an abundance of tourists yearly. There are an array of unique experiences to be had in Finland, from swimming in an icy pool to seeing Santa Claus and walking in their beautiful woods, and although it is a large country, it is easy to get around either by car, rail, coach, air or by boat.
For people who love the outdoors and being active then Norway is the place to be. Boasting deep fjords and high mountains, there are plenty of places to hike and explore. Alternatively there are opportunities to go snowkiting, skiing, ice skating, sailing, fishing and even go on a wildlife safari, or for the less active, Norway does also offer museums and a great city life in Oslo.
Similarly Sweden offers an array of adventure sports and activities from timber rafting to skiing and golfing, as well as relaxing spas and copious amount of shopping opportunities. The country also has a very cultural side and inhabits heritage sites, museums and art galleries by the boatful. Swedish music has made its mark on the World with the likes of ABBA, Ace of Base and Swedish House Mafia all being house-hold names, and so there are music venues scattered around the countries, suiting all genres.
Scandinavia has a lot to offer and even though the four kingdoms have a similar culture, they each offer different activities, sights and experiences.
