when to goChoosing when to visit Scandinavia depends on weather and activities. Take advantage of the long summer days and white nights from mid-May to August, when the region explodes in festivals, concerts, and outdoor events. Fall and spring see fewer crowds. To view the Northern Lights, visit Lapland in northern Finland between September and March. Consider a winter visit if winter sports or Christmas markets are high on your list.
