Nordic 1 A Relaxing Oasis: Tallinns Nordic Hotel Forum hotel design

Located just outside of Tallinn’s Old Town in the city’s up-and-coming Rotermanni Quarter, Nordic Hotel Forum is a contemporary option for the modern hipster. As a world-class business hotel, it has all the technological amenities a guest could hope for: super-speedy wifi, flatscreen TVs, and even Skype-equipped telephones. The hotel’s aesthetic is designed to provide guests with a relaxing escape from both work and play – and it definitely does the trick. For this weary traveler, the tranquil room with its comfortable bed was a welcome solace from a long day of trekking around the cobbled streets of the nearby Old Town. As for the rooms, they feature clean lines, smooth textures, and a color palette of bright whites and dark woods.

Tallinn, Estonia is the perfect weekend addition to a tour of Scandinavia. It’s a quick, easy and inexpensive ferry ride away from both Stockholm and Helsinki. With its charming and well preserved old town, ringed with stone walls adorned by fairytale turrets, it’s the perfect place to experience pure Baltic flavor laced with a sliver of Scandinavian influence.

Stockholm’s Nordic Sea Hotel is not only home to the Icebar, but it’s home to an Ice Menu too. In the Sea Bar & Restaurant you can get this set menu featuring dishes inspired by the flavors of Jukkasjärvi in Swedish Lapland. Here dishes are served on plates and bowls made of pure ice from the Torne river in Northern Sweden!

Upon entering the Nobis Hotel, the lobby’s elegant aesthetic makes a positive impression. The round lights hanging from the ceiling provide a cloud-like feel that complements the natural light flooding in the windows.

Sweden is home to the famous Ice Hotel, located way up north in Swedish Lapland, where you can sleep on ice beds in an artistically sculpted ice room and dine on ice dishes with drinks in ice cups in the dead of winter. Adventurous couples can even get married in the ice chapel. (I fully considered this.) If your plans don’t include a northern jaunt during the winter months, you can still get your icy fix at the Icebar inside downtown Stockholm’s Nordic Sea Hotel.

Bergen is the gateway to Norway’s fjord country, and it’s also the second largest city in Norway. But unlike cosmopolitan Oslo with its glittering skyscrapers, Bergen manages to maintain a small-town vibe with its colorful old-style buildings and bustling seafront harbor.
