Denmark tailor-made holidays
Denmark, by virtue of its proximity and affordability is arguably the easiest of the Scandinavian countries to visit. A harmonious mix of old and new, ancient castles and Viking forts sit cheek-by-jowl with contemporary cities and slick design.
Made up of Jutland, the peninsula pushing north from Germany, and the two islands Zealand and Funen, the country comprises green, flat farmland in the main.
Most visitors head to Copenhagen, an exciting, atmospheric, atypical Danish destination. It has a beautiful historic centre, a good range of cultural offerings and a number of museums. The island on which Copenhagen sits, Zealand has fine beaches, lakes and forests to uncover.
Elsewhere a smattering of charming villages and clean sandy beaches provide the main attraction, although Jutland has a more varied landscape, with a windswept shore, wild heath and rolling hills; it also boasts the liveliest city after Copenhagen, Arhus.

Venture to the isolated Faroe Islands, between Britain's northern shore and Iceland. Embark on a four-day self-driving route, travelling from Vagar, through Bird Island and to the Vestmanna cliffs, ending in Torshavn. This short break is bursting with excursions and immersion in Faroe culture.
Denmark offers up an enchanting blend of fascinating history, unique culture, wonderful scenery and an inviting climate, making it an ideal destination for UK holidaymakers looking for something a bit different to the usual European summer destinations.
Although small in size compared to some of its larger Scandinavian neighbours, Denmark packs a lot into a relatively compact space. Along with the forward thinking, carbon neutral capital Copenhagen this self-drive takes in the highlights of North Zealand, Jutland and Skagen.

When to go to Denmark
"April light was unlike any other. It had a charming, optimistic unreliability like an overbid hand in poker. It gave a promise of spring that it wasn't sure it could keep."Peter Høeg, The Quiet Girl Denmark has the least extreme climate in Scandinavia, consisting of warm summers, colourful autumns, green springs and cold, windy winters, and each season has many attractions.
