Travel guide

Discover the hygge atmosphere .

This little country in the north is all too often forgotten. People think of their cities before they think of the country as a whole, even though it has so much to offer! Go beyond Copenhagen, accompanied by the Little Mermaid or the Vikings, to discover the most beautiful places in Northern Europe: Thy National Park, the dray cliffs of Mons Klint, the Danish desert of Rabjerg, the lighthouses of the coastline that tell you the most beautiful legends, or the forests filled with trolls… finish with the archipelago of South Fionien.

You never thought you’d discover so much?
