Scandinavia in June is truly beautiful and this is the favorite month of many Scandinavia travelers. There are lots of outdoor events, all the warm-weather attractions have now opened...I love this month.
On the other hand, travel prices are also quite a bit higher (not just flight prices, but also admission to attractions that have varying prices depending on the time of year). And there are more tourist crowds in June.
Make sure you learn what June in Scandinavia has to offer so you can weigh the pros and cons of traveling this month. Check out this month's events and activities, along with the typical weather and practical packing tips.

Yes, the Euro is so expensive at the moment that many travelers opt to stay in their home country. But don't forget about that one place that is now cheaper than ever: Iceland with its beautiful capital Reykjavik. A couple of years back, travelers were able to get just around ISK 60 for 1 US Dollar - now they get around ISK 80, almost 50% more money.
