Europe’s most northern countries enchant explorers with ice-carved landscapes, mesmerising wilderness, dramatic fjords, boreal forests and towering mountain peaks. If the beauty on land wasn’t enough, those lucky enough simply have to look to the heavens to see the dazzling display of the Aurora Borealis (Northern lights) illuminating the night sky above. In winter the freezing temperatures are ideal for numerous winter activities. While during summer explore cities which routinely rank as some of the happiest places in the world to live. Or hike through unspoilt wilderness with stunning uninterrupted views.
