Luxury travel to Denmark

Enjoy the best of Denmark with a private trip designed just for you

True Scandinavian warmth

A visit to Denmark is all about hygge – a cosy feeling of contentedness. You’ll find it in the people, the food and the scenery. It’s no wonder Denmark is continually voted the happiest country on earth.

This Nordic nation is made up of the Jutland peninsula and 443 islands, about 74 of which are inhabited. Its capital, Copenhagen, is a beautiful city, home to the royal family’s Amalienborg Palace, Christiansborg Palace and the Renaissance-era Rosenborg Castle with its exquisite gardens.

You’ll find growing numbers of roe deer grazing in the countryside and antlered red deer in the woodlands of Jutland. Look to the coast and you may spot porpoises, whales and seals.

Culturally, Denmark has a lot in common with its other Scandinavian neighbours Sweden and Norway. Find a table at a traditional restaurant and you’ll likely find yourself feasting on meat, fish and potatoes. Danish dishes are seasonal, but definitely try a smørrebrød (open sandwich) for lunch, or, if you’re a little hungrier, order frikadeller (pork or veal meatballs) or kogt torsk  (poached cod). And of course, toast your fellow travellers with a good Danish beer. There has also been a recent leaning towards gourmet cooking at many of the top restaurants resulting in New Danish cuisine, and Michelin stars for a couple of Copenhagen’s most acclaimed eateries.

1,500km from Copenhagen, sitting just above the tip of Scotland, are the Faroe Islands, a self governing nation under the sovereignty of Denmark. This chain of 18 volcanic islands are an outdoor lover’s dream with lush green valleys, gushing waterfalls and incredible wildlife. It also has a fascinating culture and offers an experience quite unlike anywhere else in Europe.

Whatever you want from your Europe tour, our team of expert travel designers are ready to help.

When to go

The best time to visit Denmark is in the summer from June until August when the weather is at its warmest. While the scenery is beautiful when it snows in winter, temperatures from December to February can be very cold. If you're wanting to soak up the sun on the coast, visit around August, but if you're city-bound the temperatures in May and June are milder and more conducive to exploring places like Copenhagen.
