Scandinavia is one of the hottest travel destinations of 2017 and you don’t need to dig very deep to understand why.
It’s a place where buzzing cities are juxtaposed with a vast wilderness of forests, fjords and mighty coasts. Home to spectacular wildlife, pristine Nordic air and a never-ending offering of things to see and do, if Scandinavia isn’t already on your must-see list, it should be.
Greenland’s great fjord system offers some of the world’s most stunning natural spectacles. The main 110-kilometre body branches out into numerous fjords, the longest of which extends 350 kilometres inland from the coast. With an abundance of flora and fauna, stark basalt mountain faces and small settlement towns dotting the landscape, the Scoresby Sund is as pretty as a postcard. See it for yourself with a 13-day Greenland’s Scoresby Sund and Expedition cruise with Iceland from $8,999pp twin share.
Positioned at the head of Iceland’s longest fjord, Eyjafjörður, Akureyri’s awe-inspiring nature is complemented by its cheerful eateries, music festivals and endless menu of activities.
