If you haven’t been there (like myself), summer is apparently the best time to visit Scotland. Similar to Iceland, you have long days and the temperature won’t go too high. There’s plenty of castles to be visited, roads to be cycled and bars for beers to be grabbed. Tip: pack insect repellent. The summer Mozzies are real.
3. New Zealand
If you just want to snowboard or ski, can’t handle the sun at all and just want to wear coats and jackets, then you should visit New Zealand. The winter there is just about to start so we can guarantee you that you’ll stay cold.
Even though we are wearing shorts and have the AC on to the highest setting in Oslo, we still want to add Norway to the list. To escape the heat, you’ll have to travel way more north than Oslo so head to Lofoten - you can’t go wrong.
If you end up there, please let us know. We would love to hear more about that story.
7. Faroe Islands
One of the most picturesque places in the world. But there’s much more to do there than just taking nice pictures for the ‘gram. There are a boat-load of activities to do including kayaking, hiking and trail running, and if you get lucky, it's a great destination for surfing too. There’s a selection of super tasty restaurants, so we can guarantee you’ll have a good time.
