Time for Coffee?

If you’re planning to visit Scandinavia this year with The Mighty Fine Company be prepared for coffee and cake!

Northern Europeans love to ‘fika’ (go out for coffee). In fact they love it so much that, certainly in Sweden, the coffee breaks come thick and fast (typically every two hours). And the great news is that, as well as the liquid refreshment, there’s always cake too! From cinnamon rolls to almond rusks and chocolate cake, if you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’re in for a treat!

So why not settle down with a cup of coffee and a slice of cake and find out all about our holidays in Scandinavia?
