Suprisingly culinary: Scandinavia

When you think of Scandinavia, you probably don't immediately think about delicious food. Though this part of Europe has a lot to offer for food-enthusiasts. Ingredients come straight from nature, which means that the meals are fresh and healthy. Besides all of this, there's plenty of fish to feed from! All the edible goods in nature inspired Visit Sweden to raise the iniative ''The Edible Country''. This iniative transformed Sweden into world's biggest restaurant! Scattered across the country you will find about 20 outdoor kitchens to prepare the most delicious meals on your own. Get out, explore, and cook in the midst of the most beautiful sights.

Want to immerse yourself in Swedish culture? Try out the Swedish fika, a coffee break filled to the brim with the most delicious baked goods. This is something you have to do on your trip through Scandinavia! Besides, the fika is the perfect moment to eat a real Kanelsnegl. In English, this delicacy is better known as the cinnamon roll. This Danish specialty is extra delicious when it comes right out of the oven.

Fancy getting your own food? It's possible! Scandinavia has lots of fantastic fishing spots. This makes for enough opportunities to throw out your rod besides your motorhome. For example, you could stay at Hydrokaien Parkering in Sund!

Scotland: whisky paradise!

Scotland has a bit of everything! The rolling countryside, fresh water from the mountains and the unpredictable weather make for unprecedented quality of food and drinks!

It may not look very tasty, but this dish is not to be missed on your motorhome trip around Scotland!

Belgium has beer, France has wine and Scotland has... whisky! There are as many as 130 whisky distilleries in Scotland, spread across five whisky regions. Speyside is one of Scotland's most popular whisky regions, known for its malt whisky. For example, travel the Speyside's Malt Whiskey Trail. This route will take you past 7 distilleries located in this fantastic region in three days. More in the mood for a day trip?
