The Nordic countries on a budget – send us a tip and you could win a holiday voucher |

According to a Eurostat study in 2021 on price levels for consumer goods and services, Denmark was the joint most expensive country in Europe. Sweden was fourth and and Finland fifth. Norway and Iceland? Don’t expect much change from £20 for couple of pints. It’s no wonder travellers baulk at the prospect of a holiday in the Nordic countries. But it doesn’t have to be that way. According to the Scandinavia travel guide, Routes North, “Just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t stay right on the edge on a Norwegian fjord, in a beautiful historic building in the centre of Copenhagen or in a ski resort in Finnish Lapland”.

We’d like to hear your budget tips on Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland.

If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.
