A new kind of travel guide to Scandinavia

Routes North was started to help people discover all of the amazing stuff that Scandinavia has to offer, regardless of their budget. The site covers the whole region, from cool cities like Stockholm, OsloGothenburg and Copenhagen, all the way north to the frozen reaches of Swedish Lapland.

Our destination guides are all researched on the ground by writers who know the area inside-out and speak the local lingo. Apart from money-saving tips and advice on planning a trip, you’ll find independent accommodation reviews, detailed guides to museums and other attractions, plus tips on where to eat and drink. Our travel forum is the place to get your travel questions answered.

Routes North is the only Scandinavian travel guide that pays its own way. We don’t take freebies or discounts, so you can always trust what you read on the site.
