Staycation in Scandinavia – Denmark

Fancy exploring somewhere new? Here are a few places in Denmark that will help broaden your horizons.

Bornholm

One of Europe’s top holiday islands
Bornholm was recently named one of the best holiday islands in Europe by travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler, thanks to the multi-faceted appeal of the sunshine destination. When you go to Bornholm you get what most travelers yearn for – beguiling nature with extensive forests, white sandy beaches and dramatic cliffs, idyllic country villages, charming stores and some of the best food experiences in Denmark. And, most important of all – an authentic atmosphere.

Pedal power

Bornholm is renowned for its hills, yet the island is best explored by bike. If you rent an electric bike a ride through the landscape will be child’s play.
