An awesome country : Scandinavia

Scandinavia and particularly Norway is a fabulous travel destination. Gotland, Sweden – Sweden’s largest island, Gotland lies in the Baltic Sea, a three-hour ferry trip from the mainland. Its highlight is the beautifully preserved medieval town of Visby. An Unesco World Heritage site, its warren of narrow cobbled streets, timbered buildings and fortified walls are a joy to explore. But the rest of island is appealing too, with miles of long sandy beaches and lush woodlands. Gotland is pretty flat, so hire a bike and set off round the island, stopping en route at its pretty rural villages, small fishing settlements and local farms and cafe’s.

Ring Road, Iceland – Often called the Land of Fire and Ice, Iceland has some of the most varied-and awe-inspiring-terrain in the world. The best way to see it: On a leisurely car ride along the Ring Road, a rambling byway that circles the island and connects you to the country’s best sites, including Reynisfjara, a black-sand beach that’s home to resident colonies of puffins, and the spectacular Go?afoss waterfall. But don’t just stick to the pavement. Detour to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula to hike an active volcano and glacier, or take to the waters of the Blue Lagoon, the famous geothermal spa that’s nestled within a lava field.

Gothenburg and the west coast, Sweden – In the space of a couple of decades, Sweden’s second biggest city has reinvented itself as one of Europe’s coolest city break destinations. It’s still a big industrial hub with a busy port at its heart, but the focus is increasingly on tourism. Why should you go? For the super-fresh seafood, for the locally brewed beer and laidback bars, and for the car-free islands that lie just offshore, where you can swim in cool, clear waters.

A nice way to explore Stockholm over a 50 minutes trip is the Royal Canal Tour. In this tour, you will travel by a 100 passenger canal boat, you will also have the opportunity to listen to the audioguide in 11 different languages. After leaving the city center on, you will get a chance to see the beautiful and famous buildings by sailing along the Djurgarden Canal.

The Little Mermaid Statue – If you have ever seen the Disney movie “The Little Mermaid” or read the original story by Hans Christian Andersen, then you know that the story is about a mermaid who trades in everything to live on land with a handsome prince. This statue was inspired by the story and sits on the Langelinie Pier of Copenhagen. It’s easily reached by foot or bike, but you can also view it on a boat tour. The statue is a must see and is often referred to as the symbol of Denmark. Extra details about http://govacations.info/2019/02/11/denmark-scandinavian-attractions/
