Discover the Nordic Perspective

🇸🇪 🇩🇰 🇳🇴 🇫🇮 🇮🇸 🇫🇴 🇦🇽 🇬🇱

Hej!—I’m a Nordic native (a Swede with a Finnish mother to be precise) who likes sharing first-hand experiences and data-driven resources to help people discover and understand the culture, people, life, sights, design, and history (Vikings anyone?) of the Nordics (Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Åland, and Greenland).

(☝ That’s me in Saksun, Faroe Islands)

I also write about how Scandinavia relates to other countries I’ve lived in (like the US, Australia, and New Zealand), along with tips about places I’ve explored in my travels.

All facts and claims on Nordic Perspective are based on reliable sources, scientific data, and actual local experiences. In other words, you can trust the information you read here and also fact-check it yourself by referring to the linked sources at the bottom of each article.

I hope you’ll enjoy my perspective, and that you’ll learn something new and interesting while navigating the site.
