When to go
Camping is possible all year round, if you plan to go in the winter months it's best to take extra care as many parts could be covered in snow and daylight hours are limited. However, it is the best time of the year if you hope to see the Northern Lights! The main camping season runs from April-May till September when most campsites are open and during the busy summer months, we recommend you book the campsites well ahead of time.
The public transport system in Scandinavia is extensive, reliable and a great way to travel around and take in the scenery. Car hire is available from most airports.
