Denmark travel guide

4.2
Known for its old-fashioned charm, Denmark often is referenced as a fairy-tale setting by visitors and locals alike. With quaint cobblestone streets leading the way to art galleries, museums, and historical sights, plus a modern and easily accessible public transportation system, Denmark seamlessly blends its rich history with modern advancements. Be inspired by the works of local legends, including the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen, the symphonies of Carli Nielsen, and the astronomy work of Tycho Brahe, then play a bit at amusement parks like Legoland. Visitors often find themselves developing "hygge," the untranslatable Danish trait that encapsulates a sense of coziness and contentment, which is thought to have a great deal of influence on Denmark's standing as one of the happiest nations on the planet.

Northern Norway travel guide

4.1
Land of the Northern Lights
Located at the northernmost tip of continental Europe, Northern Norway is a place where civilizations meet, the sun shines at midnight, and auroras paint the skies. Learn about the local culture, a mosaic of Sami, Norwegian, Finnish, and Russian influences, and see the historical attractions that stretch from prehistory to the Cold War era. Despite their modest size, the region’s cities are vibrant places with many unique architectural features and an exciting nightlife. Outside the cities, you'll find a vast area of pristine nature with mountains, fjords, lakes, and rivers. Here you can take part in a number of outdoor activities, from golfing and rock climbing in the summer, to dog sledding and skiing in the winter. Complete your Arctic vacation by tasting the local specialties, including fresh dairy products and seafood, whale and reindeer meat, and seagull eggs followed by home-brewed beer.
