Summer in Scandinavia is a well-kept secret, and the midnight sun brings with it long light days perfect for exploring the lakes, mountains and forests.
Scandinavia is one of the most captivating places to explore and is quiet, peaceful and a haven away from touristy hot spots. Contrary to popular belief it is not cold either – temperatures can still reach the 20’s or even higher in the summer months so it is a far cry from the minus temperatures that everyone would expect. Just as the winter can claim the Northern Lights, the summer gives you the Midnight Sun which extends your days so you can really make the most of your amazing summer adventure.
The Midnight Sun
Just as the Arctic Circle can lay claim to the beautiful Northern Lights in the winter, it is also the home of the Midnight Sun in the summertime. Simply put, this means up to 24 hours of daylight in the height of the season but throughout the months of April to September there are extended hours where the sun is high above the horizon meaning these amazing destinations are soaked in sunshine for more hours of the day allowing you to enjoy them to their fullest. Experience unique Arctic experiences such as fishing, hiking, kayaking and a whole host of others even when normally you would be tucked up and sleeping soundly.
One great way to experience Scandinavia in the summertime is to enjoy spending some time in some of the gorgeous cities on offer. Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen and Helsinki are amazing options if you want to try one of the cool capitals, full of lovely shops, street cafes and buzzing restaurants. You could also visit one of the smaller cities such as Gothenburg or Alesund to soak in the amazing culture and all the unique activities on offer.
Not just any ordinary city breaks – our trips offer city kayaking, food and wine tours or why not explore the city from the rooftops! Everything is possible.
