The weather may not have noticed, but spring is upon us. So chase away the dust bunnies, clear out your old clothes, let your hair out and go get yourself a well-deserved laugh at the circus.


Cirkus Arena

The circus season is starting now, and what better way to mark it than visiting the Nordic countries’ biggest circus: Arena. This 58-year-old family owned circus has never failed to entertain its audience. This year will be no exception. They are prepared to amaze you with acrobats, animal shows, clowns and the death-defying stunts of the motorcyclists in a giant ball that needs to be seen to be believed.

Cars in Bella

If you are a car aficionado, then you just can’t miss this. The best part? You can bring the whole family along!  The most exciting car show in Scandinavia is making sure that it has a bit for everyone. You and your family  can get up to all sorts of car-related shenanigans. Into model cars? Then there is a competition for you. If all you care about is speed, you can also enjoy just that by taking advantage of a simulator where you can drive up to speeds of 400 km/h. And there’s even something for the children, courtesy of Lego. A truly unmissable event.
