Summer Holidays

Scandinavia offers the perfect summer playground for all ages and offers a side of these amazing countries that is often overlooked. Sweden and Norway are home to some of the most scenic beaches in the world and there is a whole host of other exciting places to explore including Finland, Greenland and Iceland which enjoy the Midnight Sun throughout the summer months.

Let us know what you’re looking for and we can help put together the perfect itinerary for you!

Summer Holidays in Scandinavia

You will not see thousands of different packages for Whale watching trips on our website – this is because our holidays are all about quality, not quantity. Each destination has been hand-picked by one of our passionate travel experts, allowing us to create truly bespoke, tailor-made luxury holidays that will be built to suit your exact requirements.

Something different?

If you are looking for something totally unique and different, the summer months offer a wealth of unique opportunities in some of the most beautiful and remote destinations in the world. Try your luck searching the North Atlantic waters for hundreds of humpback whales swimming amongst the gigantic icebergs along the North West coast of Greenland or scour the remote landscape of the Svalbard archipelago for a sighting of a Polar bear.

Explore Scandinavia

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.

Visit Norway

City Breaks

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.
