Once the snow melts, the mountains get ready for a different kind of season and become a haven for outdoor activity holidays.
By the end of spring, warming temperatures and long days begin to melt the snow across Scandinavia. A few of the resorts above the Arctic Circle will keep their slopes open until June, but most ski resorts shut by mid-May. However, this does not mark the end of the year for the mountain resorts. After a short rest whilst the snow melts, the chair lifts and slopes will open once again, and hotels will welcome a different type of outdoor adventurer.
What to do on a summer holiday in Scandinavia?
The list of outdoor activities available through the summer is extensive. Mountain biking is one of the most popular options, along with white water rafting, kayaking and hiking. Then there is also horse riding, golf, fell running, moose safaris, fishing and swimming in abundant lakes, as well as much more.
Outdoor adventure for all ages and abilities
Some chair lifts open throughout the summer months. You can catch the chair lift up the hill and cycle, hike or run back down, so the activities become ideal for the whole family and all ability levels. Guides and lessons are also available for most activities, whether you want to go kayaking, take a guided horseback ride through the fells or want to refine your mountain biking technique.
