We all enjoy relaxing, including discovering exciting places, visiting new destinations, or rediscovering places we've been to. Scandinavia is an ideal destination for both short and long holidays. We have put together 20 different travel ideas for you for 2020 which you can add to your wish list.
Calm and relaxing ferry trip
Before boarding the ship you will be able to do all the necessary things at home and pack, as the ship will leave Sweden in the evening. When you sleep, we sail! And the next morning you are at a destination where you can continue your journey.
Sunset, stars, sunrise - this is one of the bonuses of a ferry trip. Travel in a seaview cabin and enjoy the wonderful views that nature offers you during your sea trip.
Did you know that your pet does not have to stay home when traveling with our ferries? Our Swedish line ship has pet-freindly cabins so you can enjoy a boat trip with your favorite. Welcome aboard!
During a 3-hour boat trip from Paldiski to the seaside small town of Hanko, known as Finland's Summer Capital No.1, you can enjoy a complimentary meal at the ship's buffet restaurant as well as wonderful sea views.
Vacation in Finland
What better way to relax other than having a nice weekend at Regatta SPA on the seashore in Hanko? Relaxing procedures, long walks and wonderful sea views are just what you need!
Did you know that kite surfing is not just for extreme athletes, it is for everyone? Hanko and the surrounding area have all the possibilities for an active holiday and Tulliranta beach with its beautiful sand dunes is a well-known place for water sports enthusiasts. Hanko is a perfect place for kite surfing!
Did you know that there are over 2 million saunas in Finland? The Finnish sauna is part of the local culture. So - enjoy a cozy sauna and enjoy the cleansing of your body and mind!
Exciting taste experiences and activities in Sweden
Fika is much more than just a cup of coffee. It's a good reason to get together with friends or family for a good time and enjoy a great coffee and snack. Fika-break has a long tradition in Sweden and is very popular. Get some magic moments on board our ship!
If seafood is one of your favorites and you want a unique experience, it is definitely worth the trip to the Bohuslän region of Sweden, where you can fish with shrimp, mussels, lobsters and meet local fishermen. And what can be better than making delicious food on the spot from your own catch?
One pleasant day in Liseberg, the most visited and open year-round amusement park in Sweden, is a breath of fresh air. But if you like the Wild West and want to try your hand at gold screening, the High Chaparral theme park is a place you just can't miss!
Get your friends together and have a dog sled through snowy landscapes. This is a great opportunity to enjoy the wonderful winter nature in a slightly different way.
Have you ever wondered what life was like in the castles? If you are looking for a luxurious weekend or are planning a mini-vacation, you should visit one of Sweden's 150 castles.
It doesn't matter if you are new to skiing or already advanced, there are many ski resorts in Scandinavia of different size and difficulty levels. When you arrive in Sweden in the morning with our ferryt, you have the opportunity to be on the ski slope the same afternoon.
A day in the middle of nature
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to stay overnight in a ufo board, birdhouse, or mirror house? Now you have the opportunity! In a wooden hotel in the north of Sweden, you have the opportunity to experience the surrounding nature in the most unique way.
Have you ever seen this unique sight with your own eyes? Swedish Lapland is most likely to see "dancing" northern lights in the sky until March. You just have to be in the right place at the right time!
One passionate fisherman knows where the best fishing spots are and how best to catch the fish. There are thousands of lakes and rivers in Sweden and Finland where you can fish. Take the time and enjoy - no matter the size of the catch, it is a quality time spent in nature.
Campground on the banks of a river or lake, bathing, barbecuing, baking marshmallows, enjoying peace and quiet. Are you familiar? When was the last time you went camping? If this happened a long time ago, this exciting way to travel would once again be your 2020 destination. Leave the comfort of home for a moment and go camping in Scandinavia with your family or friends.
You need to be in the right place and at the right time to catch the moment the whale comes on the water. If you can't see a whale on your first trip, don't worry - next time you might be lucky! In any case, it's a completely different experience!
Troll tunga (trolltunga) is a piece of rock protruding from a rock, 700 meters above Lake Ringedalsvatten in the Norwegian mountains. The journey to the Troll Tongue is a long one, but getting there and the wonderful views of nature are worth it.
