“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float, to gain all while you give, To roam the roads of lands remote, to travel is to live.” – Hans Christian Andersen
Northern Europe includes Iceland, Finland, the Scandinavian countries of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, and the Baltic countries of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.
These countries offer a range of landscapes from majestic fjords, mountains, wild seas, and windmills on the flatlands. Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Finland are all recommended as good locations for viewing the Northern Lights. The number of international visitors to the Baltic countries continue to rise, with good reason.
