A lot of Nordic Visitor travellers find inspiration in films. In Iceland, you can explore Game of Thrones filming locations. In Scotland, you can immerse yourself in the magic of Harry Potter’s world. In Stockholm, you can walk the same sophisticated streets from Stieg Larsson’s thrillers. As for Amy Charles, our Nordic Photo of the Month winner for March 2017, her dream of dog-sledding in Finland was also inspired by a movie. (Which one? Find out in the interview below!)
A professional dressage horse rider and enthusiastic solo traveller, Amy is an inspiration in her own right. She recently explored snowy Finland on Nordic Visitor’s Winter Week on Top of the World, a 6-day adventure in the winter resort town of Levi in the Lapland region. She has also previously travelled on one of Nordic Visitor’s guided small group tours in Iceland, so she’s no stranger to rugged, outdoorsy destinations.
We were thrilled to have a chance to hear more about Amy’s trip, her inspirations and her words of advice for other solo travellers and visitors to the Arctic.
