The Most Beautiful Places in Scandinavia

by Timothy Ruppel

When it comes to Europe, Scandinavia often gets overlooked. And that’s a shame, considering the stunning natural beauty found throughout this small region.

Reasons to visit 

Scandinavia is a northern European region with Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland. This place has everything you’re looking for: nice weather, stunning landscapes, cozy accommodations, and fantastic food. If you go there during the winter season, take a short hike into the forests or a ski trip to a nearby mountain.

One of Scandinavia’s most famous natural landmarks is Lysefjorden in Norway. The two-kilometre-deep fjord contains an Evje or alpine farm used primarily as an agricultural school.

Gothenburg is a city with many beautiful natures on its doorstep. The archipelago is only 12 miles away, and you can reach it by either bicycle or car. Once there, you can relax on the white sand beaches, hike across forests, go fishing, or explore the most miniature tomb of Sweden. The Semmingput archipelago in southern Sweden has about 700 small islands. Summing Island is the largest in the world. Here, in the quiet waters in the archipelago, you can live for weeks without encountering other humans. Its solitude makes it an absolutely perfect place for a surprise proposal with a 3 stone engagement ring in tow. An ideal spot to celebrate your love for one another without the fireworks, it is a place for beauty and solitude in equal measure, and as you explore the place, it is the tranquility of the place that brings people back time and time again.
