Denmark tailor-made holidays

Introduction

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.

"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. Spring is generally sunny and cloudless, and a good time for city visits, when the main attractions are less crowded, but the most popular time to visit is undoubtedly the summer months of June, July and August, when the weather is reliably sunny, and the countryside is …
