Scandinavian countries are known for their hospitality and welcoming attitude toward visitors, and the region is famous for some of the happiest residents in the world! Each country has a different term for this idea of comfort and happiness – ranging from the familiar Danish “hygge” to Swedish “mys” and Norwegian “kosellig.”

We want to extend this Scandinavian way of life to our guests, ensuring that you find comfort and happiness in your journey!
