The Nordic countries offer tourists a new perspective on a genuine outdoor vacation. Travelers can choose any country that provides a variety of environmental initiatives, allowing them to appreciate the surrounding nature and explore the cultural diversity of the region.

Which Scandinavian destinations are worth visiting, and what kind of offerings do they have? Forbes has shared information about it.

Denmark

This year, it's worth visiting the Carlsberg city district in Denmark. It is the oldest and, at the same time, the newest district of Copenhagen, filled with restaurants and various fashionable places. Two new electric ferries are planned to be launched here, connecting regions such as southern Funen and the picturesque island of Samse.

Faroe Islands

Experience true Faroese hospitality and a commitment to sustainable tourism this year at Hanusarstova. This restored cottage on the picturesque island of Eysturoy allows guests to enjoy home-cooked meals and simple living just 60 minutes away from the capital city of Tórshavn. Additionally, you can experience nature and luxury at Føroyar Hotel.

Finland

In Finland, the seaside city of Turku is a must-see, offering surprisingly interesting natural diversity. The city boasts 40,000 islands that provide travelers with endless opportunities for exploration, including hiking and cycling routes, as well as scenic sailing trips.

Greenland

When exploring Scandinavia, Greenland is a must-visit destination. Adventurous travelers, in particular, will enjoy the 14-day journey from Nanortalik to Upernavik aboard the Sarfaq Ittuk coastal ferry of Arctic Umiaq Line.

Iceland

This year, the country is emphasizing slow tourism, inviting travelers to immerse themselves in the adventures of the central highlands of the Kerlingarfjöll Nature Reserve. Additionally, UNESCO World Heritage sites like Þingvellir and Vatnajökull showcase inspiring natural diversity.

Norway

This year, travelers can explore the Norwegian coastline thanks to environmentally friendly hybrid and electric ships from Hurtigruten or Havila. Additionally, tourists can enjoy nature and lush forests in rented cottages and take a walk in the Hamaren activity park.

Sweden

In 2024, Sweden is also not lagging behind in its commitment to implementing environmentally conscious initiatives. Guests of the country will be able to indulge in natural recreation with suppliers who adhere to the principles of sustainable development as part of the Nature's Best Sweden program.
