"All in all, this "Scandinavia in a nut shell" experience is unforgettable, and we are already planning our "in depth" visit in the near future. Last but not the least, we don't expect people living in such cold countries to be so warm and helpful. Thank you once again for helping to make our 2-weeks holidays so unforgettable."
