We have assembled some of the best treks, rides, cycling trips & journeys of our world. Whether you are looking at a leisurely cycle trip in Denmark or want to trek the volcanoes of Iceland, we’ve got you covered.
Our region has some of the most beautiful natural scenery and untouched wilderness of Europe. Living within this wilderness are countless precious species to discover.
For bird lovers, head west to Greenland or the Faroe Islands to discover puffins and arctic birds or head east to see Snow and Emperor geese of the Russian Arctic. Alternatively, the Estonian waters and coastline are stepping-stones along the flyway between breeding and wintering area for Arctic birds.
If you are keen to deep sea dive or snorkel, you can explore the Lofoten Archipelago with its magnificent kelp forests and king crabs. Kayak at sunset with whales in Norway.
Photographers can spend time in the Finnish wilderness alongside remote rivers, staying in log cabins. Join bear, flying squirrel or beaver observation tours or spend time in a hid and keep watch for wolf, lynx and wolverine.
We are passionate about offering you the best opportunity to see the magnificent wildlife of our home countries. We offer tailor made tours to High Arctic zoos for families, remote and adventurous safaris, self-drive itineraries in the Nordic region and expedition voyages into the High Arctic.
Our region has some of the best hiking in the world - Greenland treks, traditional hut to hut hikes in Norway, 'best sellers' in Iceland, all the way through to high mountain passes in Mongolia and Volcanoes in Kamchatka. When it comes to cycling, Norway's fjords, mountains or the majesty of the Lofoten Islands offer 'once-in-a-lifetime' biking experiences. Around virtually every corner you will find new, indescribably beautiful scenery.
We also offer day or half day cycling trips in most of our main cities. Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo are all relatively flat and perfect for exploration. Guided bike tours in these cities get you meeting locals and exploring the town from a different perspective. Family friendly options are also available.
50 Degrees North is a family run business that specialises in the region north of the 50th parallel. We are parents ourselves, and have travelled extensively through this northern region with our own children. The region is safe and well organised, and the perfect holiday destination for kids of most ages. Scandinavia, in particular, is a family friendly destination, and despite the myth, can be reasonably cost friendly as well if you put your mind to it.
The main focus at 50 Degrees North when it comes to travelling with kids is 'one size does not fit all', thus, we promote tailor made itineraries to be the most suitable. Scandinavia is scattered with family parks, opportunities for wildlife viewing, a well organised network of walking tracks & huts and camp groups (huts or tents) in remote beautiful locations. Looking east, from personal experience we have found Mongolia to be a perfect 'travelling with kids' destination; staying in well catered Ger camps on the steppe, riding horses and getting the kids away from the TV and out into the wilderness. And most importantly, the destinations described offer something for both adult and kids, combined in a very nice way.
The traditions of the Scandinavian lifestyle go back hundreds of years. In the rush and crush of modern life, the rarities are what we value most, such as space, quiet and time. Pure nature, relaxing sauna, a spoonful of traditional treatments, and wild food for serving - you can transform yourself into a new person during your holiday.
Stay on your own private island in a traditional Swedish cabin, head to the forests and lakes of Finland or the mountains of Norway. Enjoy the simple things on offer such as hiking in silence, ice dips and saunas, Scandinavian superfoods, hot springs or spend time by the sea...Take in the sound of quiet. Hear yourself think.
