Read an Excerpt

Enjoying Nature: Norway is one of the last major countries of the world where you can experience nature on an exceptional level. The country extends 1,100 miles from south tnorth (approximately the distance from New York tMiami). Spread across it are 12,400 miles of fjords, narrows, and straits, which gave the country its name-Norway means "the way tthe North." It's a land of contrasts, with soaring mountains, panoramic fjords, ice-blue glaciers, deep-green forests, fertile valleys, and rich pastures. The glowing red midnight sun reflects off snow-covered mountains, and the northern lights have fired the imagination of artists and craftspeople for centuries.A Week Down on the Farm: The best way tsee the heart of Denmark and meet the Danes is tspend a week on one of their farms. Nearly 400 farms, all over the country, take in paying guests. Stick a pin anywhere on a map of Denmark away from the cities and seacoast, and you'll find a thatched and timbered farm, or perhaps a more modern homestead. Almost anyplace makes a good base from which texplore the rest of the country on day trips. You join the host family and other guests for meals. You can learn about what's going on at the farm, and pitch in and help with the chores if you like. Activities range from bonfires and folk dancing triding lessons or even horse-and-buggy rides. Although the official agency that used tarrange such holidays is nlonger with us, many visitors seeking this kind of offbeat accommodation often surf the Internet for farms that advertise their willingness treceive guests. Or, decide which part of Denmark you'd like tbe located in, then contact the nearest tourist office which keeps a list of farmswilling taccept paying guests. Soaking Up Local Culture: Home ta great cultural tradition, Sweden is acclaimed for its symphony orchestras, theater, ballet (including the renowned Swedish Cullberg Ballet), and opera companies. During the long days of summer, open-air concerts are staged all over the country (local tourist offices can provide details). Many concerts, especially those featuring folk dancing and regional music, are free. Taking a Finnish Sauna: With some 1.6 million saunas in Finland-roughly one for every three citizens-there's a sauna waiting for you here in the country that virtually invented this steamy bath. Ideally, your sauna experience should be in a log cabin with windows and a view of the lake. Naturally, you'd be joined by friends with whom you'd share beer cooled in a frigid lake and sausages roasted on heat-retaining stones. After a sauna, the ideal way tcool off is tgfor a swim in a cold lake. In winter, when the lake is frozen over, a hole is sometimes cut through the ice sthat the really keen can take a dip. Visitors can enjoy saunas at most hotels, motels, holiday villages, and camping sites.
