The Scandinavian and Kola Peninsulas
Fennoscandia is a term for the arctic region that encompassed Sweden, Norway, Finland, and the Russian territory around Murmansk. Often the start of an East-West journey along the Northeast Passage, or as the start and finish of a trip to Svalbard, this region is dominated by absolutely stunning coastal landscapes.
Molded over millennia by the ice of glaciers, the fjords and inlets of the Scandinavian coastline are renowned as some of the most beautiful waterways in the world.
With a rich mix of cosmopolitan cities, arctic wilderness, forests, tundra, and a variety of cultures, Fennoscandia makes a wonderful destination of its own or as several additional stops on your arctic cruise itinerary.
