Your order


Denmark is one of the happiest countries in the world, and it's time to find out why. From marvelling at the colours of Copenhagen to breathing in the sea air, your Denmark bucket list is filled with wonder and excitement. Are you ready to begin?


Stroll around Nyhavn, Copenhagen 


The colourful houses along the Nyhavn port are probably the most photographed spot in the city, and you'll soon see why. Head here towards the end of the day and enjoy the port's nightlife from one of its many bars. 



Ride the rollercoasters at Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen


Why are the Danes so happy? Simple. When there's an amusement park in the centre of their capital, how could they not be? Join the fun at Tivoli Gardens, where there are rides for all ages and tastes. 



Try smørrebrød, the Danish answer to sandwiches 


Smørrebrød is an open sandwich found across Denmark and must be tried if you're there. Typically made with rye sourdough, the bread is smothered with a mixture of meat, fish, vegetables and condiments. Traditional toppings include herring, beef, onion and mayo. 



Visit Rosenborg Castle in autumn, Copenhagen 


Rosenborg Castle is a stunning 17th-century palace located in the heart of the city. Home to the Crown Jewels, the castle is worth a visit itself, but then head outside to the gardens. Visit in autumn to watch this beautiful parkland turn red and orange.



Snap a photo with the Little Mermaid


You've seen a picture of this statue before, haven't you? Located in the harbour, Copenhagen's iconic Little Mermaid is a favourite photo spot for all visitors. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's story, this statue is tribute to one of the most magical fairytales of all time. 



Visit Kronborg Castle 


You might have read The Little Mermaid, but have you read (or watched) Shakespeare's Hamlet? If you have, you'd better visit Kronborg Castle, Hamlet's original home. This beautiful Renaissance castle plays upon its Shakespearean heritage with regular performances of Hamlet and other plays, so if you haven't watched it, you're in for a treat! 



Visit the Hans Christian Andersen Museum, Odense 


Explore the childhood home of Denmark's most famous fairytale author, Hans Christian Andersen, and discover more of his work. Then, wander around Odense. With its colourful houses and narrow streets, it's easy to see where his inspiration came from!



Go surfing in Cold Hawaii


When we say cold, we're not talking a few degrees colder. Take the plunge at Klitmøller, Denmark's exciting and challenging surfing hotspot. With its massive Atlantic waves, get ready for the ride of your life. 



Party in Aarhus


In Denmark's second largest city, anything is possible. Aarhus boasts a lively atmosphere with an innovative streak, making it one of the best destinations for sustainable living. This, combined with an enthusiastic student population, makes the nightlife difficult to beat. 



Dress up like a Viking, Roskilde 


The Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde is one of Denmark's best attractions. Here, learn about the Danes' fearsome ancestors through the five Viking vessels shown in the museum, before participating in a coin-minting or shield-painting workshop. If you're lucky, you can even sail onto Roskilde fjord in a traditional Viking boat - dressed in costume, of course!
