Everyone loves Nyhavn! And visitors to Copenhagen's colourful harbour were treated to Kriss jumping off it this summer. (Note: A canal tour is an easier way to see it from the water.)
BMX sensation, Kriss Kyle, caused quite a splash (get it?!) when he came to play all over some of our biggest sights this summer. Luckily for those of you who didn't get to watch him in action, a film crew followed him around and caught the highs (and the odd near miss) of his adventures in Denmark!
Kriss made it all look easy. You might even think he had fun exploring Denmark's everyday wonders. But in reality, two weeks of hard graft and... no actually, it was just a lot of fun. But did he land those tailwhips first time? And what motivates Kriss Kyle to share his passion for exploring the world from a different angle?
How did Kriss get the name The Scottish Wildcat? And what's happened to his scaredy bone? Find out how 27-year-old Red Bull BMX star Kriss Kyle got to where he is today, landing insane tricks and wowing the world.
What is it about people falling off their bikes that is such great entertainment? Kriss was kind enough to not land gracefully on some of his tricks, so we could all enjoy some outtakes. (And don't worry, he's fine!)
Don't! Are you completely mad? No really, of course you can. All the locations Kriss tricked at were real places to visit in Denmark. And many of them are completely free to explore! Read on for how to follow in Kriss' tyre tracks.
Here's Kriss riding all over a big Nyhavn and a little Nyhavn. Our wonders really do come in all sizes! Both of these classic locations (the original LEGOLAND® and Copenhagen's colourful harbour) are among the most popular in Denmark.
These were the dramatic Danish locations that made Kriss reconsider his desire to jump off them on a bike... then pull off his wizardry anyway. But honestly, they are not as daunting when you're only walking up to enjoy the view!
Kriss got to explore some hidden gems too on his Danish adventure. These next locations are not so well known outside of Denmark, but to Danes they are a pretty special part of everyday life!
It's not that we're jealous of Kriss, but... well maybe just a bit! He got to leave his mark on three beautiful structures this summer, each one an iconic wonder, and experience them from a totally unique angle.
It might look like Kriss effortlessly tricked his way from wonder to wonder, but he needed a little extra help to get around our island nation!
You can treat yourself to a quick hop between Copenhagen and Aarhus with a Nordic Seaplane ride, departing from harbours in both cities.
Be honest. You too have imagined trying to get on a ferry when it's already departed. Kriss did it this summer, on the famous island-hopping ferry IDA!
