Bornholm Island Highlights

Denmark's easternmost island in the Baltic sea is a sight to behold. The island receives many hours of sunshine and its extraordinary light has a long history of attracting artists. This slow-paced, friendly place is the only place in Denmark where you can walk craggy, granite coastline. Known for pure, white beaches, you can enjoy a unique island culture of round churches, regional delecacies, and quaint fishing villages, all among postcard-perfect scenery.

How to find a little bit of coziness at the most hygge time of year

Top Christmas Hygge Experiences in Copenhagen

One of the most commonly-used words in Denmark has no English translation. Hygge, pronounced hoo-ga, is often translated as coziness. But to the Danes, hygge means a lot more than that. Deeply rooted in the Danish culture, hygge is about living in the moment and spending quality time with friends and family. Enjoying delicious food or a great cup of coffee, having a good time with loved ones or creating a cozy atmosphere, usually by lighting candles. That's hygge.

Skjoldungernes Land National Park

Located just a 30-minute train ride from Copenhagen, Skjoldungernes Land was created to preserve the rich natural areas that border Roskilde Fjord.

Whether by foot or bike, it's easy to explore the area's meadows, forests and marshlands. Paths for horseback riding crisscross the area too.
