Explore this diverse region in an unusual yet idyllic way with our Northern Europe Tour Packages
Call it the land of Vikings or the most progressive regions on the continent, the Northern part of Europe has more to offer than what it is known for. Synonymous with, of course, its beauty, magnificent fjords, lakes, dramatic landscapes and its incredible drenched-in-history monuments, Northern Europe is a pure delight to visit. But that’s not all! It thrives with its rich trading and seaside cities, colourful old towns, vibrant festivals, far-flung islands and exceptional warmth of locals. This portion of Europe comprises Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Ireland, the United Kingdom and Sweden but with the Baltic Sea encircling most of these countries, the republics of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania also acquire a prominent space in the region. And that is because of this diversity of countries that you will find hordes of remarkable experiences scattered around every corner.
Even though Northern Europe is one of the most visited tourist regions in the world, it doesn’t mean it's all crowds and queues. In Scandinavia, you will be treated with hushed snowy landscapes and spectacularly remote areas. In Norway, you will find an unusual peace while criss crossing your way through the fjords and lakes. And what better way to give solace to your mind with lakeside saunas in Finland or lazily cruising between the icebergs of Iceland. In Ireland and the United Kingdom, you can spend your time gazing out at the remarkable landscapes, exploring the ancient castles and the most impressive cities. The Baltic gems Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania can be considered the perfect option for off the usual trips as they offer plenty of amazing, never-seen-before sights including Baroque architecture, fairytale forests and histories that come to life when experienced closely. It’s no coincidence that all these extraordinary destinations consistently rank among the world’s happiest and wealthiest nations. From the unforgettable Aurora hunting to unmissable adventures around the Arctic Circle, from the enchanting Danish countryside to perfectly juxtaposed cities, Northern Europe features it all!

No wonder why it is rightly called the island of fire and ice. Iceland’s summers are surprisingly warm, with days stretching until midsummer whereas the winters are made to marvel at the amazing, rolling green, blue, yellow and lights of the aurora in the night sky or going out for an amazing adventure. The country is ripe with unforgettable adventures- you can take a road trip along the Ring Road that runs beautifully around the country; explore options to see the Northern Lights; take day trips around Reykjavik and Westfjords; go for adventures or soothing sips in and around Blue Lagoon and see the cascading waterfalls.

Despite being relatively undiscovered by the world, there are many intriguing places to visit in Finland that have easily gotten the deserving attention of travellers. Whether you want to peep out of your glass igloos to witness the extraordinary Northern Lights, enjoy city tours in Savonlinna and Helsinki, get super close to nature in Lakeland, take pleasure in a traditional Finnish Sauna or visit Santa’s imaginative world at Lapland, the Finland tourist attractions are nothing less than magical wonders.
