The deals are all at the SAS Go Light fare level, which is not the airline's fad diet scheme but its version of a basic economy fare. The tickets allow you to travel with a carry-on and personal item but will not include a checked bag. The fares are also non-refundable. It's also worth noting that the airline offers SAS Youth Go Light fares at an even lower price, exclusively available to travelers under 26. [Avocado toast... something, something... airline food.]
While it's not exactly peak travel season to northern countries for most of the travel window available in the sale, there are spring flights available. Additionally, there is a whole lot to enjoy about traveling to any of these countries during the winter months even if you aren't interested in skiing.
