Scandinavia is a region of incredible natural beauty. Here at the top of Europe, the winter nights are long, but the tease of the Northern Lights keep people looking up all night long. In summer, days stretch out for fifteen hours or more, offering plenty of time for hiking and sightseeing. You'll find a blend of old and new in Norway, where you can view preserved Viking ships dating back over a thousand years, visit village stave churches from the Middle Ages, and explore Oslo's futuristic waterfront. Fall for Stockholm's storybook charm and discover Sweden's rich folk art heritage. And discover a land of fire and ice in Iceland, where warm mineral springs, geysers and glaciers shape the landscape. With independent vacations, including Northern Lights chasing tours, and escorted tours and cruises, you won't miss a miss a thing on your journey through the north.
