Active holidays in Nordic nature

With over 7000 kilometres of coast line, 70 inhabited islands and more than 200 ”Blue Flag” beaches, outdoor activities are never far away in Denmark.

See the main attractions from a bicycle saddle, ride the waves in one of Europe’s best windsurfing areas and go hiking on 65 million year old cliffs before kicking back, spending a day afield casting for trout in a quiet stream.

Denmark: A mecca for cyclists

Flatteringly flat and blessed with an inviting infrastructure, the Danish landscape is easy to access and enjoy. One of the best ways to explore the country is on a bicycle – the Danes' favourite means of transportation. Gently rolling countryside, bicycle tracks crisscrossing the nation and bike friendly towns and cities stamp Denmark as a mecca for cyclists, making it smooth to get around on two wheels. Many bikes are available for rent almost everywhere and if you are looking to provide scenic views, the "Margueritrute" is literally right up your street. The 3,600 kilometre long route will take your clients past more than 200 of Denmark's most spectacular sights. Or plan a trip following the legendary West Coast Route in Jutland, one of the 26 looped and sign-posted Panorama Routes in Denmark.

Wadden Sea

Outdoor activities

Denmark offers plenty of other outdoor activities to suit all ages and interests. Golfer clients can tee off at one of the many golf clubs in picturesque island settings like Samsø and Ærø or get a world-class golfing experience on Djursland. Families will love to experience the Danish Wadden Sea on an Oyster Safari; where they can get up close and personal with some Danish wildlife in a local fishing boat in Esbjerg or Hanstholm.
