my 5 best travel experiences of Scandinavia!
Read about the 5 best travel experiences of the scandinavian destinations!
The best part of traveling are all those amazing experiences you collect and cherish along your journey. These are moments which brings an element of surprise, excitement and are ocassially filled with your own dreams and desires. Pursuing them sometimes even changes you from inside and open your eyes to see the world from a new perspective.
I love visiting Scandinavia countries. There is so much of nature to see and explore there. Below are my my 5 top favourite travel experiences of scandinavious destinations:
As you may have read in my earlier posts, where I shared my all time “Winter Bucket List” I want to accomplish in my lifetime, Tromso (Norway) was the first item on the do-list. So I visited this place in the March 2017. During my trip, I traveled on a full-day countryside tour where I was driven between breathtaking snow-cap mountains. I had the best time of my life watching those amazing fjords coming live in from my eyes. It literally felt a dream come true.
As they say, if you have not visited Lofoten Islands, then you have not visited Norway! It is indeed one of the most breathtaking places on earth. In winters of Feb 2019, during my Norway trip, I visited this amazing destination where I got the chance to witness the beautiful and mesmerizing view of Northern lights. It was like a different world altogether. Its something you should experience if you get the chance to visit Lofoten Islands.
Skógafoss is a beautiful and biggest waterfall situated on the south-coast of Iceland. I visited this astounding destination while completing my Iceland tour of December 2017. Most people dont try to get that close proximity of this huge waterfall, especially during winters, when all the area over the ground is super slippery, but I couldnt resist to walk over until the edge to experience the massive look of this giant waterfall has to offer. A great thing to see while on the trip to Iceland.
Glacier hiking is one the best ways to experience Iceland in winters. On my Iceland trip of December 2017, while visiting Iceland South-coast, I got a chance to visit the famous “Sólheimajökull glacier” which is a part of Mýrdalsjökull, Iceland‘s fourth largest glacier! I was with a small group where I spend almost 30 minutes walking on the glacier, and was indeed one of the best moments of my life!
Imagine going on a cruise during the winter along the Arctic ocean? Do you believe it to be exciting? Well for me it was the most exciting thing I ever did in my travels. In the winter months of Feb 2019, I went on a cruise along the Norweigan sea. Although it was super freezing to even step outside, but I was able to capture some of the breathtaking pictures along the ocean! Every second of that journey was filled with spectacular views of fjords and snow covered mountains!
Traveling is I believe is that inspiration which ignites the soul of our heart, its gives a directions to explore life, its a meaning that give purpose to some and its a journey full of incredible experiences. The above 5 experiences of Scandinavia lets say are just the tip of an iceberg, there are many more I have been through and many more yet to experience.
Have you been to Scandinavia? Do you have any such experiences on your travel? Or Do you wish to pursue them ever in your life? …I would be glad to know your thoughts, so feel free to share on the comments below! 🙂
Nice list! I would love to see the Northern Lights <3
I’m sure you will! Everything is possible and we have only one life! Thanks for stopping by and sharing your comment! 🙂
The food in montreal and hiking up a glacier in Iceland! This really inspired me to think of my favorite moments from the places I’ve been 🙂
That’s sounds awesome! I wish to do iceland trip this winter (there is particular hike which can be done in winters only) and it’s my dream! And I’m hoping to visit Toronto this year…so maybe I could also try some Canadian food there! 😁 but thanks for sharing your thoughts and comments! 🙂
These are amazing! Deciding just 5 things is so hard. But definitely meeting cool new people, traveling solo for the first time, accidentally visiting abandoned amusement park and I don’t even know! So many choices 😀
Ya the list is always never ending. But I thought to pick the first 5 which came to my mind. And meeting people, travel solo are always the best experience. Besides hopping into an abandoned park is for sure a new worth remembering experience! 😀
