Five Reasons To Visit Scandinavia12:00 AM

1. Natural Beauty Everywhere
Scandinavia has a scenic landscape and has been blessed by Mother Nature in its varied topography and natural phenomenon. The Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis), the Midnight Sun and the Polar Nights to name a few. We were lucky to have seen two out the three.
If nature doesn't attract you (... how is that possible?!) then you have option of so many cultural and interesting cities to pick from -
All the above cities (and country's capitals) have culture, history, nightlife, along with metropolitan atmosphere and diverse mind set to offer to all their visitors.

Scandinavia is filled with picturesque locations for all interests - museums, castles, shopping, amusement parks, and more. We spend first half of day exploring some of the attractions and second half of the day strolling streets and discovering local neighborhood and alleys.
Unlike most european cities (especially the small towns and area), everyone in Scandinavia speaks English! Just like India all Scandinavian children learn English in school. Hence, traveling here is convenient and easy.
All Scandinavian countries are either connected to each other my road or railways. The distances are close and can be covered within a few hours (or maximum a day). In Norway, we took the train from Bergen to Oslo and were amazed at how a few of hours we were in a buzzing city from the scenic country side.
The public transportation in all the cities was excellent (except we didn't use any in Iceland). All of the airports were connected to the city center by train. All in all, several modes of transportation were available from train, car, bus and even bikes.
