Denmark is made up of Jutland, the mainland, and several islands including Zealand, Bornholm and Lolland-Falster and is a wonderful country to visit. Clean, safe, and well-ordered, a holiday in Denmark has something to offer everyone with its laid back cities, beautiful beaches and lush green forests, plus it's less than two hours away from the UK. Visit the capital Copenhagen for unmissable shopping and its relaxed cafe culture, or venture further afield and explore the scenic cities of Sønderborg and Esbjerg. Then there's the remote island of Læsø complete with its sand dunes and desert too.
You can fly direct to Denmark from most UK airports. Ryanair offers flights to Denmark arriving in both Aarhus and Billund, while easyJet, SAS, British Airways and bmi all fly to Copenhagen in around two hours.
The bigger cities such as Copenhagen and Aarhus are busy all year around, although they tend to be less popular in the Autumn and Winter when flight prices can be cheaper. That said, Christmas and New Year can see flight prices more than double so are best avoided. July and August are also popular times to visit the rest of Denmark, so steer clear of travelling in these months if you're looking for a cheaper deal.
It's relatively easy to get around during your holiday to Demark as train and bus services are reliable and frequent, while the ferry service offers a good and affordable way of travelling between islands.
Like most Scandinavian countries, Denmark can be pretty pricey although it is still possible to find cheap hotels in Denmark by comparing deals online and booking in advance. Camping can be a great and cheap alternative during the summer months, allowing you to really appreciate the great outdoors.
Denmark is home to many well-regarded music festivals which run throughout the summer months, but entrance fees can be expensive. If music is your thing, have a look around online for the less well-known events which are bound to be cheaper but still offer the full festival experience!
Eating out is an expensive pastime in Denmark with a three course meal easily setting you back around €30. The cheaper alternative is to frequent cafes or pizzerias which offer better value for money. The one thing you won't have to fork out for during your Denmark holiday though is tips, as they are not expected or required.
