Nice to know
When do the Scandinavians go on holiday? When do they order holiday travels?
If you’d like to take advantage of the Scandinavian market, there are a few things you ought to know. Since the Scandinavian holidays don’t match the Italian ones, people from the North might come to visit you at unexpected times.
- First: The holidays in Scandinavia – Norway, Sweden and Denmark – mainly follow the school calendar:
- In summer, school ends about the 20th of June and starts up again in mid August.
- There’s an one week autumn leave/ holiday. Different regions take the leave some time from late September to mid Octobre.
- Christmas holiday is from about the 20th of Decembre to 2/ 3rd og January.
- There’s a winther holiday for one week in late February/ early March.
- Easter holiday lasts for 10-12 days from the weekend of Palm Sunday until Tuesday after Easter.
- Even in May there’s a week where many people leave, because the are many single holidays.
- Scandinavians have at least 4 weeks of holiday, some 5 or 6. Teachers follow all holidays of the school calendar (but work a lot the rest of the year).
- Scandinavians MAY go on holiday on any time they choose. So even if the school calendar is important, most people can choose when to take the weeks they want.
Planning their holiday
- Many people PLAN their holiday travels early. For the summer, even Christmas is «high season» when comes to ordering. Late autumn is low season. Those who want to go abroad eg. for Christmas, normally order their trip in early autumn.
- Anyway, in all winter, spring and summer it is very important to be visible if you want to catch as many Scandinavians as possible.
And for all these rules, there of course are exceptions…
