Northern Europe includes the region of the Scandinavian peninsula. Seventeen countries, including parts of countries, make up Northern Europe. From Greenland to Iceland, there are many countries which are part of this region. Most of them, apart from the United Kingdom and Ireland, experience a cold climate.
If you want to find a Viking, you must book a ticket to Denmark. Let not its small size fool you; it has an impressive collection of beaches and culture to make you fall in love with it. Sweden also abounds in beaches, the reason being the archipelago. Iceland is not all ice and if you want something hot the geysers can help you out. It has a vividly diverse scenery, volcanoes followed by snow covered mountains.
You are never going to find gorgeous fjords anywhere other than in Norway. The rural and homely atmosphere will make you feel at home with nature. Finland is an isolated country; its language is also different than rest of the countries of northern Europe. It acts as a passageway between the eastern continents and Europe.
Greenland and Faroe Islands are under the rule of Denmark, but they also have the same heritage as the rest of the countries. The United Kingdom is a conservative, yet modern nation which is home to one of the global cities. Germany might have gone through dark phases in history, but now it has lively cities like Berlin to prove it can still be a peaceful destination.
Spanish, French and other Romance languages can be handy in Northern Europe. But you can easily get around with English only. The younger generation is fairly fluent in it, and that can get you around. Roadways connect urban areas. They can help you reach your destination, but connections to the rural area are limited. You can use public transport options as well, like buses for short distance travel.
