    a big punch

    Please help me make the conversation below sound natural as some kind of interview for a TV show or newspaper.

    T: Since you mentioned that there are no big mountains to climb in Denmark, where would you most likely go mountain-climbing or hiking?

    D: Usually we go to the neighboring Nordic countries of Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, where there are large sparsely populated areas suitable for wilderness backpacking and multiple day lodge-to-lodge hiking. There are also areas for day hikes near most towns and villages.

    T: Although Iíve never been to the Nordic countries, I have been looking forward to traveling there. What are the best sights and attractions to visit in the Nordic countries?

    D: Nordic countries have some of the most majestic natural landscape on Earth, offering everything from rugged adventures in Arctic wilderness to royal palaces and world-class culinary experiences in centuries-old cities. When you think about the best Nordic countries to visit in the northern part of Europe, Denmark usually comes to mind. Our country looks small but packs a big punch in cuisine, culture and design.

    T: Although Iíve never been to the Nordic countries, I would love to have been looking forward to traveling go there one/some day. What are the best sights and attractions to see there? visit in the Nordic countries?

When you think of about the best Nordic countries to visit in the northern part of Europe, Denmark usually comes to mind. Our country looks small but packs a big punch in when it comes to cuisine, culture and modern designs.
    * I pointed that mistake out to you a couple of days ago. My memory is not that hot; I thought yours might be better!

    Also, consider using "Scandinavia" instead of "(the) Nordic countries" in your text.
