Best Travel Destinations in Scandinavia

A person admiring one of the best travel destinations in Scandinavia.

Scandinavia has been crowned for years now as a place of the happiest people on Earth. Also, the Nordic countries have a kind of political regime that succeeded in making them the safest countries worldwide. So, we can’t think of a better place to be a part of your journey after rehabilitation. Here are some of the best sober travel destinations in Scandinavia.

Land of Fire and Ice is a must-see

Awe-inspiring is an understatement when it comes to Iceland’s natural landscape. The so-called Land of Fire and Ice will shake you to your core with stunning waterfalls, hot springs, volcanoes, and magical glaciers. It’s also a somewhat unpopulated island, so you’ll have the beautiful wilderness all to yourself. Wherever you go in this nation, you’ll be greeted by breathtaking scenery. It can be a great opportunity to recharge and reconnect to yourself in the healthiest way possible.

There’s a reason why the Land of Fire and Ice is one of the best sober travel destinations in Scandinavia.

Witness the wonder of aurora borealis

In addition, if you visit Iceland in the winter, you may try to see the aurora borealis, one of nature’s greatest wonders. Due to its proximity to the Arctic Circle, where aurora activity is highest, Iceland is one of the greatest sites on Earth to see the phenomenon. Additionally, the lack of light pollution in the country’s rural areas makes the auroras easy to see in all their vivid hues. All of this can be a nice reminder that miracles are, indeed, possible. A sky that can make such miraculous hues will motivate you to keep fighting for your own miracle and recovery.

Active vacation in Norway

Norway is a great place to visit if you like surfing. The water may be a little chilly, but it’s worth it. One of the most incredible places to do cold-water surfing is the Lofoten Islands, which are located in northern Norway. This area has excellent potential for sober traveling because it offers many exciting physical activities (we all know how vital it is to get natural dopamine in recovery). Addiction treatment specialists encourage kids and teens from the program to participate in exciting sports like Norway.

Diversity in all its pristine glory is a synonym for this beautiful country. The terrain is far more rugged and rocky than in the other northern nations, and it snakes and wiggles its way through a fascinating variety of plateaus and fjords, island chains and grasslands, ports, towns, and cities. You’ll be accompanied by the midnight sun as well. In the summer, if you feel like going on a trek at 9 p.m., you can.

Avoid tourist traps

As the capital of the country, Oslo consistently ranks among the top “most expensive cities in the world” lists. However, there are methods to minimize the impact of the city’s high costs on your vacation. It’s usually a good idea to eat where the locals do and avoid the tourist traps while you’re out and about.

Sweden is one of the best sober travel destinations in Scandinavia

Sweden and other Scandinavian nations are fantastic vacation spots for sober travelers. In Sweden, you may only purchase alcoholic beverages through Systembolaget, a chain of government-run liquor shops. As a result, the cost of serving alcoholic beverages in eateries and bars rises. This makes you want to avoid alcoholic beverages in favor of cheaper alternatives. Also, you’ll enjoy Sweden’s well-developed rail system by traveling throughout the nation by rail. You may take the train to the hip Swedish cities like:

• Stockholm

• Malmö

• Gothenburg

Lapland and aurora borealis

Sobriety can have many benefits you may never have imagined, including an opportunity to travel and rediscover the world (and maybe even meet Santa). Lapland, located far to the north in Sweden and Finland, is a breathtaking part of the world. Not only can you see Santa in Lapland, but it is also a prime location to view the northern lights. The beauty of nature, after years of limitations and closures, will fascinate you.

The aurora borealis is a once-in-a-lifetime event, with its dazzling display of iridescent colors lighting up the night sky. Some of the best parts of a trip to Lapland are the winter sports that lead you into the snowy woods. You can do snowmobiling, snowshoeing, or dog sledding. In order to top it all off, winter is the most incredible season to go on an aurora safari and see the northern lights.

Save money and visit the wonders of Denmark

We know that rehabilitation and soberness are not cost-free, but there are still options for traveling. Denmark is the most budget-friendly sober travel Scandinavian destination, particularly if you go in early February when airfare and hotel rates are at their lowest. Fortunately, there is a plethora of activities that don’t cost much, if any, money at all.

Enjoy the unique biking experience of Zealand

Zealand is the biggest island in Denmark and is where the country’s capital and the magnificent Rosenborg Palace can be found. Walking or riding a rented bike through Copenhagen’s neighborhoods is the best way to get a feel for the city. Following the 230 miles of bike paths, you may easily explore the city center, the neighborhoods of Vesterbro, Nrrebro, Frederiksberg, and the surrounding suburbs. Bycyklen, the city’s bike-share program, offers over 130 rental locations at just 1 DKK per minute.

Don’t miss the hotspots of Copenhagen

Take a free walking tour, photograph yourself with the Little Mermaid statue in the harbor, or go to the top of the Christiansborg Palace Tower for breathtaking panoramas of the city. Tivoli Gardens, one of the world’s oldest amusement parks, is particularly lovely during the holiday season.
