Denmark vacations 2022 & 2023

The waterfront canal of Nyhavn, Copenhagen

On a vacation in Denmark, you’ll find a kingdom of turreted castles, ultra-modern buildings and tiny fishing villages with clusters of brightly painted houses. Viewed under the ethereal light of a Nordic summer sun, there’s a fairytale quality to this often-overlooked country — one that’s fitting for the home of Hans Christian Andersen and various Norse myths.

We’ve explored Denmark’s islands, cities and countryside and can help you discover aspects of the country that intrigue you, whether that’s Scandinavian design, Renaissance history or Viking heritage.

Want to walk in the footsteps of Shakespeare’s Hamlet? We can arrange a privately guided tour of North Zealand that includes Elsinore and Kronborg Castle. To explore Danish culinary traditions, you could learn how to make smørrebrød, the country’s signature open-faced sandwich, in a cooking class. We can also help you get to know cool and confident Copenhagen, whether that’s on a private cycling tour or by taking a cruise along the canals.
