For many caravan owners, touring Scandinavia is a trip that is most definitely on their list. As Scandinavia is a large region of Northern Europe, there are many countries to explore. Norway, Finland, Denmark and Sweden each provide endless possibilities to explore. This is why many caravan owners add Scandinavia to their list of places to visit but it is clear that a certain amount of time is needed to cover the trip.
Depending on the amount of time you have you may only choose to tour some of the countries of Scandinavia. Wherever you choose to go, make sure you have taken out caravan insurance to cover yourself for the many ‘what if’s’ that could affect your caravan whilst you are on your trip.
Here is a brief snippet of each country which will be sure to make you want to go and visit to find out more for yourself!
