    Nordophile is always looking out for blogs which delve deep into one of the Nordic countries, to encourage Nordophiles to visit.

    We discovered Routes North, which was founded by Steve Vickers. Steve and his writers go to the places with a fresh perspective and then they bring them to you .

    Routes North was started to help people discover all of the amazing stuff that Sweden has to offer, regardless of their budget. The site covers the entire country, from cool cities like Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö, all the way north to the frozen reaches of Swedish Lapland.



    Our destination guides are all researched on the ground by writers who know the country inside-out and speak the local lingo. Apart from money-saving tips and advice on planning a trip to Sweden, you’ll find independent accommodation reviews, detailed guides to museums and other attractions, plus tips on where to eat and drink. Our Sweden forum is the place to get your travel questions answered.

    Routes North is the only Sweden travel guide that pays its own way. We don’t take freebies and we don’t run sponsored posts, so you can always trust what you read on the site.



    Routes North is an independent travel guide to Sweden. Founded in 2014, its aim is simple: to help travellers get the most out of a trip to the country, regardless of their budget. No messing about – just helpful, honest travel advice.

    Unlike the vast majority of publications writing about Sweden, we do not take free stuff or discounts on travel services. Why? Because it means we’re free to say what we really think. All of the hotels, restaurants and attractions featured on this website have been visited in person, anonymously.


    Routes North was started by the British journalist Steve Vickers, who has worked on more than 15 guidebooks across Europe and Asia and has spent the past six years exploring Scandinavia with his Swedish girlfriend Karin. Want to say hi? Contact us via Twitter or send us an email at:
