Scandinavia is a region in Europe that is located north of the Baltic Sea. Even though it is the largest region in Europe, it only accounts for about 4 percent of the population. Scandinavia includes the countries of Denmark, Sweden, Iceland, Norway, and Finland. Known for its natural beauty, this area is famous for its fairy tale parks and castles, rocking festivals, liberalism, and the aurora borealis.
If you are a nature lover, Scandinavia offers you larger-than-life stretches of wilderness, from forests and lakes to volcanoes. Home to some of Europe’s best hiking areas, the national parks in this region must be visited if you want to experience kayaking, bear-watching, and glacier-walking. When you visit Scandinavia, you will feel like you have entered a painting teeming with rough fjords, stunning coasts, an extensive group of beautiful islands, and cliffs full of seabirds. All these reasons make Scandinavia a popular tourist destination.
One of the best ways to explore these countries is to go on a Scandinavian cruise. If you are interested in a cruise that has more port time, this is the ideal cruise for you. This region is packed with many coastal cities and diverse nationalities, therefore, while selecting a cruise it is recommended that you go through the itinerary. Choose a Scandinavian cruise that has the destinations that you definitely want to visit. Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Oslo are ranked among the best ten ports in Europe.
You have plenty of variety when it comes to choosing the types of cruises and cruise ships due to the short distance between the Scandinavian cities. If you are looking for a lavish experience aboard a luxury floating hotel, select the Cunard, Norwegian or Princess lines. These luxurious ships have facilities like cafes, bars, multiple restaurants, casinos, and spas. If you want something more private, sail aboard Holland America’s ‘Prisendam’ or one of the smaller ships of Cruise and Maritime Voyages’.
Although there are more cruise options available in summer, you can choose to go on a Scandinavian cruise all year round. Here are some of the best cruises to Scandinavia.
