About Routes North

The first independent travel guide to Sweden & Denmark

Travel guide to SwedenRoutes North is an independent travel guide covering Sweden and Denmark. 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.

Unlike the vast majority of publications writing about Sweden and Denmark, we do not take free stuff or discounts on travel services. Why? Because it means we’re free to say what we really think. All of the hotels, restaurants and attractions reviewed on this website have been visited in person, anonymously.

Routes North was started by the British journalist Steve Vickers, who has worked on more than 15 guidebooks across Europe and Asia and has spent the past seven years exploring Scandinavia with his Swedish girlfriend Karin. The site now attracts more than 50,000 unique users a month.
