Höga Kusten – Sweden

Naturally, there are a great many Instagram friendly places in Sweden. But Stockholm City Hall, Liseberg amusement park in Gothenburg and the city walls round Visby are pretty passe these days.We therefore suggest the High Coast on the Baltic Sea. The High Coast Bridge across Ångermanälven river, 80km north of Sundsvall, is probably the most famous part, but the area also boasts magnificent nature that’s highly photogenic.

Lofoten – Norge

Här tipsar vi inte direkt om en specifik sak att fota. Men i Lofoten behövs inte det – för överallt finns magiska vyer, dramatiska landskap, berg och vatten. Att besöka de vackra öarna, som går ut i Atlanten från den nordnorska kusten, borde vara ett måste på allas bucket-list. Ibland kan det krävas en vandring eller klättring för att säkra bästa bilden. Det finns dessutom möjlighet att fånga norrsken på bild om du besöker Loften. Bästa tiden är i slutet av september till slutet på mars.

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art – Danmark
