Hiking Preikestolen, Norway

Preikestolen or Pulpit Rock is one of the most famous hikes and lookouts in the world. The view atop Preikestolen has been named the worlds best by several notable travel publications. Take my word for it, the views are amazing but that’s not half the story of Pulpit Rock; first you’ve got to get up […]

Hike to Kjerag, Norway

Some of the worlds greatest hikes are located in Norway. The towering cliffs and mountains overlook the scintillating fjords below. The views at the top of these cliffs are priceless and rank amongst the worlds best. I personally have hiked several and my favorite by far is Kjerag, the home of Kjeragbolten. Kjerag is a […]

Day Trip to Greenland

A Weekend in Iceland

In the past decade since I was last in Iceland in July 2000, it has become a serious tourist destination. A lot has changed in this small Scandinavian island nation. It’s about half price what it used to be after the collapse of the economy, although it’s still bloody expensive. The capital city of Reykjavik […]

The Faroe Islands

The fantastic and forgotten Faroe Islands are a simple short flight from Denmark, Norway, Iceland and even the UK but they are so far off the general tourist map that few people ever actually make it here. It’s a real shame because this 18 island jigsaw puzzle of an island nation is well worth the […]

Copenhagen and Malmo

It had been 9 years since I was first in Copenhagen, the very expensive capital of Denmark, so I didn’t remember everything. I just remembered that it was a gorgeous place with really friendly people-not much has changed. We spent a great day and night in the city which included a 6 hour walking tour […]

Icebar Stockholm

Perhaps the biggest tourist attraction in all of Stockholm is the Absolut Icebar in the Nordic Hotel. The bar is made out of ice completely, with the exception of the floor. Even the actual bar and glasses are ice. Of course they only serve Absolut vodka drinks and they are not cheap. However, that’s understandable […]

Whether you’re wandering the crooked, narrow streets of the “Old Town” Gamla Stan or meandering through the broad shopping streets and gorgeous immaculate buildings, its not hard […]
