Denmark is the southernmost country in Scandinavia, boasting some of the highest rated standards of living in the world.
Often regarded as a ‘fairytale country’, Denmark has both natural and architectural splendour in abundance. Renaissance castles stand on lake banks and stunning sandy beaches line the coast. Whatever the season, Denmark has something to suit.
However, it is much more than just beautiful buildings and scenery. Its capital, Copenhagen is a hub for fashion, gastronomy and forward-thinking design. It’s also a haven for cyclists, with a vast network of cobbled streets leading you to candlelit bars and fascinating museums.
Denmark is an excellent gateway to the surrounding Scandinavian countries and mainland Europe, with a large number of top-quality ports providing numerous routes, all operated by leading ferry companies. Also, as a nation with many islands and peninsulas, travelling by ferry is the most convenient way to explore everything Denmark has to offer.
Norway is the Westernmost country of the Scandinavian peninsula, bordered by Sweden, Finland and Russia.
Norway’s landscape and nature attractions can never be overrated, with its steep-sided fjords of extraordinary beauty cutting straight into the coastline, the mountainous interior, vast forests in the east, as well as the most charming wildlife in Europe.
The vibrant cultural life is also something to enjoy, with plenty of traditional celebrations that you can plan your trip around.
