"From cycling and coffee culture to the loveable Lego bricks, the inspiration for Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and the concept of hygge—there are many simple yet but profound reasons why Denmark’s charms run deep."
—Mario Koch, Experience Designer
Of Hygge & Happiness
As one of the oldest countries in Europe and home to many of the world's beloved fairytales, in Denmark, there is magic hiding around every corner. With a deeply ingrained philosophy called hygge—loosely defined as warmth, inclusiveness and solidarity—the Danish are repeatedly rated the happiest people on Earth. And as you travel from Copenhagen’s cosmopolitan cool to the rural roads of Fyn and Northern Sjaelland’s art and castles, you’ll come to understand why.
Discover the possibilities:
Explore Danish history from Vikings to today’s royalty as you pedal alongside the Danes on dedicated bike paths and peaceful country roads. Discover chic northern and peaceful western Sjaelland and pastoral Fyn island, drinking in the sea views, castles, and the charming homes and gardens, and sampling the new Nordic cuisine’s delightful ripple effect at tables both elegant and blissfully simple.
Danish Family Adventure
Explore the best of Denmark with your family—from Copenhagen’s canals to the Fyn archipelago. Walk through medieval castles and imagine growing up royalty, paddle and sail and imagine raiding like a Viking, savour the fresh cuisine and peaceful bike trails altogether. Get to know Copenhagen from a new perspective, either on a chill private cruise or on a guided kayak tour and learn about the real royal stories of Kronborg castle, inspiration for Shakespeare’s Hamlet, during a private tour of its nooks and crannies.
Denmark to Sweden Multi-Active
Cycle, stroll and possibly even kayak through the best of southern Scandinavia, meeting some of our favourite locals along the way for a bite of fikke here, a sip of akvavit there, and likely a lot of laughter. Take a private lesson with a Danish chef who will fill you in on the New Nordic food movement, cycle through former royal lands in both Denmark and Sweden and explore two of the Swedes’ favourite vacation destinations: the wild green and blue of the Stockholm Archipelago followed by the beauty of Gotland.
