Colourful city canals lined with buzzing bars and restaurants. Sand dunes illuminated by sublime skies. Working windmills nestled in picturesque meadowland.
Follow in the footsteps of the Viking Danes as you visit this completely magnificent country – from the castles of Zealand to the beaches of Skagen. Denmark has moved on from its frightening Viking reign, and is today considered as the benchmark for progressive politics, sustainability, design and lifestyle, best exemplified in the art of hygge. Embrace this Danish notion when wild swimming in Silkeborg Lake District, enjoying a bike ride through Bornholm, or marvelling at the Northern Lights in Greenland, Denmark’s magnificent, autonomous hinterland.
Craving the hustle of a city? You’re spoiled with options. Effortlessly chic Copenhagen is stuffed full of world-class restaurants, cutting-edge architecture and picture-perfect canals. In medieval Helsingør you’ll encounter both cobbled alleyways and contemporary art, plus the towering Kronborg Slot, the scene of tragic classic Hamlet. To the north, artistic Aarhus rivals Copenhagen with its explosive restaurants and inventive art installations, while coastal city Aalborg marks the start of fjord country.
