If you’re looking for excitement, adventure and really wild things, then your next destination has to be Scandinavia. Just imagine, breathtaking snow-carpeted wilderness, just crying out to be traversed by snowmobile or cross country ski, extending from the icelocked north pole to the sandy beaches of the south. It’s all there for the taking.
A centuries old tradition of skiing means you are never far away from a well-organised resort with slopes for every skill level, while for those who prefer to make their own way, the north of Sweden offers the chance for downhill skiing on wild slopes, just you and the mountain and some of the most dramatic scenery on the planet.
And what better way to take in the scenery than by hangliding over it, gazing down on a land created by violent volcanic eruptions, mountain ridges carving a route to the Arctic Circle. What about a skimobile trek into the heart of the Arctic Circle, where you can witness the natural wonder of the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, and warm yourself round a campfire at the very top of the world.
So if you’ve been keeping an ear out for the call of the wild, why not follow it to the north and challenge yourself with some of the most exhilarating and thrilling adventure holidays available, and make your mark on this unspoilt, mountainous paradise. Sites like www.visitsweden.com are crammed with adventurous ideas, from winter sports to exploration, catering to all levels.
