Sensational sea life in Denmark

With over 400 islands and 7,000 kilometres’ of Danish coastline, Danes could certainly be said to have salt water in their veins.

Book a stay at a traditional beach hotel and tell your clients to get ready to either soak up a sunset or pick up the pace with long hikes, horseback riding along steep cliffs or rides on the waves of the west coast of Jutland. The options are limitless when it comes to enjoying life by the sea in Denmark.

Life by the sea in Denmark

Let your clients recharge their batteries by the sea in a homely summer cottage for rent, in a tent at the cosy camping areas or at one of the many, quite fashionable and stylish, beach hotels.

Danish darlings along the coastline include Skagen, which is famous among artists for its special light, and which, in the past, attracted painters such as P.S. Krøyer and Anna and Michael Ancher. Today, this old and pretty fishing village is a hot spot for bon vivants, bohemians, sailors and others in search for the good life by the sea. The buzzing summer harbour life paints another lively picture of Danish sea side culture.
