You can play on many North Zealand golf courses as a non-member and they are close enough to each other that you can try different courses out over one holiday. You'll find courses for golfers of all abilities in the region.
World-famous as the home of Elsinore, the castle of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Helsingør has long held a strategically important position at the mouth of the Baltic Sea. Feel the legacy of power here, with a trip to see Kronborg Castle, or walk the cobbled streets lined with half-timbered houses. The cathedral and monastery in town are also worth a visit.
Try the old coast walking trails and cycling routes for fantastic views of the island. If you dive, there are many shipwrecks along Bornholm’s north and east coasts waiting to be explored.
Bornholm’s southern beaches are a great place to try sports such as beach volleyball, kite surfing and wind surfing. You can also rent boats and sea kayaks, to explore the island from the surrounding Baltic Sea.
The northern part of Bornholm is particularly dramatic, with cliffs and rocks lining the coast. Just 5km north of the pretty seaside village of Gudhjem, rise the 22 metre high granite Sanctuary Cliffs (Helligdomsklipperne). Between Hammerknuden crag and the town of Hasle, you’ll find the unique rock features of the Lion’s Head and Jon’s Chapel (Jons Kapel).
Anglers head to Funen for some of Europe's best coastal angling spots, particular good for catching sea trout. You’ll find great locations for angling on both Funen and the South Funen Archipelago.
The lovely, sloping South Funen landscape is at its picturesque best between the towns of Svendborg and Faaborg. North of Faaborg, you find the rolling Svanninge Hills (Svanninge Bakker) with steep ravines resulting from the last glacial period, around 14,000 years ago.
On the island of Læsø out in the Kattegat, you can access large stretches of untouched nature and the island is almost entirely circled by wide beaches, with seal colonies and other wildlife.
A super way to experience Denmark’s nature is to hire a ranger, or guide, to tell you about interesting things along the way. Find out more about this service at your local tourist office or at the visitors centres located in Denmark’s national parks.

There is a little journey in every oyster. Once you open and smell them there is a fresh breeze on your face from the sea and the wild. The Romans brought the flat shelled oysters from the Atlantic region of Europe back to Italy packed with in ice, snow or in barrels with sea water. Oysters are woven into the cultural fabric of Europe as the essence of fine foods.
