About Routes North

The first independent travel guide to Scandinavia

Travel guide to Sweden

Routes North is an independent travel guide covering Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Finland and Norway. Founded in 2014, its aim is simple: to help travellers get the most out of a trip to the region regardless of their budget. No messing about – just helpful, honest travel advice.

Routes North was started by the British journalist Steve Vickers, who has worked on more than 15 guidebooks across Europe and Asia. He’s written about Scandinavia for Rough Guides, The Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian and many more, and has spent the past 12 years exploring Scandinavia in search of the perfect cinnamon bun.
