Discovering Scandinavia and its Secrets to Happiness


Article by Sam Bahayaku

Night Earth. Europe. Scandinavia

Scandinavia is home to some of the healthiest, happiest nations in the world, so it’s about time we discovered what their secret is! Take a trip around some of Scandinavia’s best loved cities to join in their way of life and find some serious relaxation and rejuvenation. Taking a Scandinavian cruise with companies like Saga Travel is a perfect way of exploring this part of the world. Here are just three destinations you could find your cruise liner calling in at.

Bergen, Norway

Surrounded by beautiful fjords and mountains, Bergen is Norway’s second biggest city. Bryggen is a Hanseatic wharf and UNESCO World Heritage Site that was a Medieval settlement. Find out more about the merchants who did business here and much more at the Hanseatic Museum. You can then take a ride on the scenic Fløibanen Funicular up Fløien Mountain to the Bergen Fish Market. The Bergen Card entitles you to free bus travel and free admittance into some museums, with discounts on others. Be sure to sample the nutritious Scandinavian diet on the Norwegian dining scene.

Copenhagen, Denmark

Often named the Happiest City in the World, Copenhagen is the capital city of Denmark. You must take a stroll around Tivoli and enjoy a few of the nostalgic rides in the early 20th century theme park. You can also catch ballet performances and concerts at the open air stages. Copenhagen boasts 15 Michelin star restaurants, so it would be rude not to try one out. Noma has been given the title Best Restaurant in the World four times by Best Restaurant Magazine! Exercise the way the locals do by hiring out a bicycle in the spring and summer.

Reykjavik, Iceland

Get the Reykjavik City Card to make the most out of your stay in Iceland’s capital. There are plenty of thermal pools around and you simply have to visit one to give your body a rejuvenating experience. Blue Lagoon is a famous option set in nature’s outdoors. Here you can also get a massage after bathing in the mineral-rich water. There is also a sauna and steam room on site, which you can spent time relaxing in before plunging into the cooler water — a popular routine in Scandinavia. Doing this will close up your deep clean pores, send the blood rushing around your core organs and reinforce your body’s natural defences. Iceland is also a great place for spotting the magical Northern Lights — book onto a trip that takes you just out of the city to witness them.
