Enter the calm country roads that take you through some of the Denmark´s most fantastic scenery. The country is blessed with unspoiled farmland, forests and heaths. You will also explore the prettiest towns and villages without ever seeing the same view twice.
On the coastal drive, stop in Klitmøller, considered Denmark’s Hawaii, the capital of water sports. Otherwise, stop as you please to enjoy local food experiences, historic manors, zoos and museums along the way.
Day 1 – Pick up your car in Copenhagen and head north
Pick up the rental car either from Copenhagen airport or Copenhagen city. You have a 3,5 hour drive ahead and it will take you to the Aarhus area. Spend the day here visiting the Aarhus Museum of Art, the Old Town, which is an open air museum, and Moesgaard Museum. The night will be spent in the area.
Days 2 – 3 – Hirtshals and Fredrikshavn – Vikings, Skagen and beach walks
The nice country roads will take you towards Fredrikshavn and Hirtshals area, take your time and stop in the urban city Aalborg also known as “The city of dreams”. Learn a bit more about the Vikings at Lindholm Høje Museum before getting to the end location for the day.
In this area you will be spending two nights, a drive up to Skagen is definitely to recommended. This is Denmark’s northernmost point where the two seas – the Skagerrak and Kattegat – meet. Think windswept sand dunes, art galleries and white cottages. A visit to the North Sea Ocenarium in Hirshals is a must. But a relaxing coffee break in a cosy café in Fredrikshavn should also be on the list.
Day 4 – Beach life in Ringkøbing
A drive down to Ringkøbing is on the agenda. Choose the road gazing out over the coastline or get back on the country roads again. First stop is the fabulous beach in Kitmøller (Cold Hawaii) or stop for a walk in Thy National Park before getting down to the Ringkøbing area where you will spend the night. In this area beach life is a fun thing for both adults and kids. Ringkøbing Fjord is the largest lake in West Jutland. The fjord is a shallow lake of brackish water surrounded by tidal meadows. Keep your eyes open. You might find some amber on the beaches.

Day 5 – University City of Odense – Home to Europe’s best zoo
Drive back through the inland of Denmark to the University city of Odense, also full of manor houses and castles to visit. Big green parks are nearby for a relaxing moment or to explore more about Odense culture. A visit to Odense Zoo might be exciting for everyone and perhaps you may even like to overnight at the Zoo.
Day 6 – Depart Denmark
Time to leave Denmark behind. A visit to Tivoli in Copenhagen might be fun before starting a new adventure in one of the other Scandinavian countries.
