Fuelled by strong economic performance and RevPAR increases around 25% across all four capitals over the past five years, the Nordics continue to grow in popularity. Airport arrivals across the capitals grew by over 3% pa, whilst overnight stays in Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen increased by almost 5% annually. Even though guests to the region remain mainly domestic or from the Nordic region, international arrivals have grown at a faster rate than domestic travel.
Despite this gradual internationalisation of the region, Scandinavia is still dominated by local operators, and Scandic and Nordic Choice are by far the largest operators.
