It’s no wonder Denmark is continually being listed as one of the happiest countries in the world. Copenhagen is a cyclist’s dream, also offering walking tours to its visitors. To the East, Aarhus has a fascinating open-air museum dedicated to the country’s timbered houses, while the port city of Helsingør has many museums and even a castle just waiting to be explored.

“Wonderful ship, high quality cabins and very service orientated staff. This was a great cruise through Iceland, Greenland and Denmark. This was my first cruise and certainly not the last. Very relaxing and yet you see so much. Have booked another cruise tour already!”
“Scanadinavia was everything I expected and then some. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore Scanadinavia. Our tour guide did an amazing job and the itinerary was neither too busy nor too sloppy. Looking forward to join the next trip.”
“The tour was falsely advertised online. My travel agent called in to confirm the details and we were provided false information on the phone again. We were told that rooms were for 2-4 people max ( I received a paper copy of that confirmation from topdeck) but upon arriving on the trip we were all surprised to see that the rooms had 10 people, and 1 bathroom. The tour guide was terrible. She was disorganized, unknowledgeable, and unprepared. The itinerary listed that we would receive free city tours and that we had a number of optional activities that we could do. All items listed on the optional activity itinerary were cancelled or closed... We only found out upon arriving to the place. We didn't even get any of the promised city tours. All in all, I'm not really sure what I paid for. We were forced to plan our own outings, organize our own sightseeing and find our way around on our own. I would not recommend this tour!”

Cycling is extremely popular in Denmark. Most Danes own a bicycle, and Copenhagen has been designed to be one of the most cycle-friendly cities in the world. Be sure to rent a bicycle for a true Danish experience.
As part of hygge, dinner time is a true celebration in Denmark. If dining with locals, be prepared for long mealtimes and wait for the host’s traditional toast of ‘skol’ before eating.
While Danes may seem very private at first, they are generally very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation with the locals!
