Hallo Renato. You didnt mention if you will be able to go by car or not. I've been at all the biggest airports in Scandinavia so I'd like to give you a few tips.
is a very confusing airport in a spotter perspective, especailly if you're a first timer and have no car. ARN
has three runways. Runway 19R/01L is impossible to get to without a car. I wouldnt recomend going by feet to runway 26/08 either, it is a few km, and even through you can take the local bus to get one km closer, it's still pretty distantly. After these exclusions, there's only runway 19L/01R left. The runway is not in use often, but when it is, you can get to a spotting terrace very easy and photograph taxi movements. Closer to the city is BMA
, but you'll probably fall asleep in the intervals.
is a rather easy going airport. It has only two runways which make the spotting much easier than at ARN
. The problem that I faced the one and only time I've been at OSL
is that both of the runways are in use at the same time, with depatures and landings at both, with the resultat of missing alot of traffic. There's very good spotting "hills" next to both runways, and you'll be able to capture good photos all day. I would not, however, recomend OSL
under any circumstances unless you have a car.
The only major airport left is CPH
. Even though the fact that I've been there several times, I've only been under the final approach for runway 22L. The reason is that it's simply the location at CPH
where you'll recive the best images and also, 22L is the most common runway in use at CPH
. This location is next to a small road, and the site is located under a km from the arrival/departure hall. There's also a free shuttle bus service to the terminal just infront of your eyes, if you cant walk the short walk
. There is other spotting locations at CPH
as Flyvergrillen and runway 30,12 and 04L approaches just to mention some of them. All of SAS MD
-80 fleet is based at CPH
, so you'll get to see many of them before they are long gone, in just one day. Both of the following photos are taken under the approach for runway 22L.
I really recomend CPH
for your next spotting trip, without doubt.

Don't forget to vist Helsinki in Finland. Finland is one of the Nordic countries.
Finland isn't a part of Scandinavia.
