The guide allows you to create your own bespoke itinerary while offering you unique suggestions of what to do and see in Scandinavia, which you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere. As well as sights and activities, the guide also includes useful travel information to help you make most of your trip

    Each location or activity has an interesting, well written description, GPS coordinates in the format: 51.079967, 1.13885, an entry number which you can cross reference with the overview maps at the end of each section, and symbol(s) which correlate to the key on the back cover flap.

    There is stunning photography throughout, making this an excellent coffee table book or gift for travel enthusiasts.

    Entries for Norway

    Divided into 7 different regions, activities include boats trips and fishing on Norwegian fjords, visiting the Hanseatic town of Bergen, a mountain train journey starting in Oslo, cabins and camping amongst wolves and reindeer, basking in the midnight sun and surfing above the Arctic Circle.

    Entries for Sweden

    Sweden is divided into 8 regions, from Swedish Lapland to the Stockholm Archipelago. In Sweden you can take a helicopter to a remote wild camping location, forage for cloudberries, canoe around Sweden's vast network of lakes, visit an active glacier, watch the aurora borealis from a mountain-top cafe, chill out in the Ice Hotel or heat up in a floating sauna.

    Entries for Iceland

    Discover the four corners of Iceland, from Reykjavik in the southwest to Lake Myvatn in the northeast. You can enjoy Iceland's hot springs and geysers, including the famous Blue Lagoon, visit an active volcano, traverse lava fields, hire a campervan from Happy Camper and drive around the country on Route 1, or find yourself speechless at Diamond Beach, where blocks of ice deposited on the volcanic sand by the tide sparkle like diamonds in the sun.

    Entries for Denmark

    Denmark is divided into 4 regions: the Sealand Coast and Copenhagen, Funen, North Jutland and Bornholm and the South Sea Islands. Explore Viking fortresses, see a 2000-year-old Oak tree, stay in one of the unique hiking shelters around the Funen coastline, stand with one foot in the Baltic and one foot in the North Sea in Grenen, camp amongst bears and wolves or visit a megalithic tomb.
