You may not have considered Scandinavia as a summer holiday destination before. But Denmark is the top vacation destination for Danes, and it's also the summer destination-of-choice for many Scandinavians. So why? Maybe it's because Denmark has some of the best beaches in Europe.
In March 2016, the UN World Happiness Report (WHR) announced that Denmark once again ranked as ‘the happiest country in the world’ – the third time our Scandinavian country has topped the UN list since it was introduced in 2012.

Climb the golden spire and watch #Christianshavn from above
In Denmark, Christmas is celebrated on Christmas Eve (December 24th), which is probably the most hyggelig day of the year. It’s a day full of busy present-buying, dinner preparations and anticipation!
During November and December, Copenhagen Christmas Festival offers more than 100 diverse Christmas events for kids and grown ups.
Dancing snowflakes, giant Christmas trees, dainty sugar fairies, the twinkling eyes of a child, waltzing flowers, cheeky mice and with Tchaikovsky’s magnificent music as the golden thread. The Nutcracker is the greatest of ballet classics and no Christmas hygge is complete without it.
A Danish Christmas lunch is a feast that often involves the Danish open-faced sandwiches 'smørrebrød' accompanied with Christmas beer and snaps, a small shot of a strong alcoholic Aquavit usually flavored with spices and herbs. Eating good food in good company, that's hygge!
