While Malta, Rhodes, Cyprus and Mallorca may be blessed with sun, beautiful beaches and ancient historic sites, these islands in Northern Europe are just as enticing for their remote and rugged landscapes which offer up all kinds of adventure possibilities. Let’s take a look!
Lofoten Islands – Norway
Home to some of the most spectacular landscapes in Norway, the Lofoten Islands are well worth visiting and alongside its lofty peaks and deep blue waters, visitors come for a chance at seeing the swirling Northern Lights.
Faroe Islands – Denmark
The wild and remote Faroe Islands are a mysterious and majestic place to visit – well off the beaten path – and its rugged scenery is absolutely gorgeous.
Isle of Skye – United Kingdom
Located in the wonderfully named Northern Hebrides, the Isle of Skye is home to some of those most dramatic mountainscapes in the United Kingdom.
Greenland – Denmark
Icy Greenland is a very inhospitable island but its snow-covered shores make for some fantastic photos and taking a boat trip amongst the nearby icebergs is a must!
Svalbard – Norway
Pack every warm item of clothing you have as Svalbard is as cold as they come! The archipelago is located in the Arctic Ocean and more polar bears than people live on the islands!
