ST team June 2023 new

We believe that the only way to offer truly great trips is to ensure that our team are true destination experts. Unlike many large travel companies, our team is solely focused on this region of the world, ensuring that each trip is created with an insider’s knowledge of the destination. Each member of our team has storied histories in Scandinavia and know the best hotels, restaurants, activities, and hidden gems to visit on your trip.

When you plan a trip with Scandinavian Travel, you’ll understand that our team has flown, driven, biked, sailed, railed, eaten, and experienced our way around every inch of Scandinavia, and we’re dedicated to bringing you the best experiences of each!

Let our team do the work and plan your vacation: from booking flights and accommodations to all the small details, we’ll make this vacation a truly memorable one!
