Romania’s Retezat
Romania’s first national park has rare plants and animals and some of the most extensive mountain forest areas in Europe. It is also a prime butterfly-watching area and bird sanctuary.

Russia’s Paanajarvi
Home to some of the world’s finest Taiga forests, Paanajarvi is a pristine watery landscape of 120 lakes, some of which are good for canoeing. There are undomesticated reindeer, capercaillie (a bird also known as the wood grouse), and lakes full of crayfish. 

Sweden’s Fulujallet
When you are not gawping at Sweden’s tallest waterfall in Fulujallet, you can follow brown bear tracks, go horse trekking and go dog sledding.
