Florida travel guide by an experienced traveler

Our Florida travel guide gives you a mix of important information and the small details that make a difference.

The foundation for this Florida travel guide has been laid by Gunnar Hedqwist, who is Florida.nu’s owner and CEO. He has traveled all over the world all his life. The number of flights, rental cars and hotel nights cannot be counted. In addition, Gunnar has many years of experience as a hotel owner in Florida.

A work in progress

  • This website is a standalone version of Scandinavian Florida.nu. Since the original has been published since 2006, it consists of up to 300 pages of information about Florida. Therefore, it will take time for us to translate everything, it is done manually (no machine translation).
    We focus on meeting the need for up to date information about “New Florida”, such as what the theme parks in Orlando will be like when the state opens to visitors from other parts of the world.
