There’s the summer stays in Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and The Hamptons. The enchanting week in Ljubljana. And of course, the unforgettable European ski vacations, to name a few.

Despite having visited almost all of the region’s major cities (Reykjavik, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo) we can’t seem to get enough of the Nordics.

From their famous interior design to their easy-going approach to life – filled with concepts like hygge (coziness) and allemannsretten (right to roam) – we’ve become enchanted. Add to that breathtaking fjords, summer nights filled with lingering sunlight and the devastatingly cool fashion, and it’s no wonder we can’t wait to go back.

Because even though many of the borders around the world are closed today, they will open again. And when they do, we will be ready with a suitcase in hand for our next adventure to Scandinavia. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait.

outerwear

1. 

The right kind of outerwear can make or break your visit to Scandinavia. Be sure to pack a raincoat for the inevitable rainy days during your journey. We love the adjustable waist on this Rains jacket, which gives it a more feminine fit.

Despite the calendar telling you that it’s summer, the varying temps of Scandinavia may tell you otherwise, so be sure to pack a warmer jacket option, too. You won’t regret having it when you end up enjoying drinks into the wee hours of sunlight in the evenings outdoors.

5.

Every seasoned traveler knows you need a carryall with more than enough space for your essentials (and nonessentials, if we’re being real). This slouchy chic tote fits a reusable water bottle, a camera and an afternoon’s worth of applesauce pouches for the kids, plus it has an extra-wide shoulder strap to support everything.

These backpacks are internationally popular for a reason: they fit way more than you’d think, making them a great travel bag. Even better is that it flattens out and weighs almost nothing, so it’s a great bag to pack for when you need extra space.

We understand that rugged luggage isn’t for everyone, so for something a little more sleek we love the minimalist polycarbonate bags from Away that come in an array of colors and sizes. Though they aren’t from Scandinavia, they sure look like it.

We cannot recommend a sleeping mask enough when visiting Scandinavia during the summer. The midnight sun can make it hard to fall asleep at times, and a mask will ensure it’s blocked out for you. Scandinavian style travel brands like Flight 001 are a great source for eye cover. And bonus – this mask even comes with a set of ear plugs to keep your surroundings quiet too.

The Flight 001 Molded Sleep Mask ($15).
