North Sealand

North Sealand is a holiday favourite with Danes and not just because of its close proximity to Copenhagen. North Sealand offers you lakes, deep woodland and green open landscape, perfect for walking, cycling and camping. The area is fringed by calm coastline where you can dip in Denmark’s best coastal swimming areas. The drive or train ride north into the region winds along the beautiful Oresund coast, giving you views across to Sweden. The massive Isefjord and Roskilde Fjord define the West of the region, while the famous Kronborg Castle, immortalised in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, sits proud at the North in the town of Elsinore.

 
 

The Danish Riviera

Head to the Danish Riviera, a short drive from Copenhagen and lined with lovely, calm beaches. The famous Coast Road winds north from the capital past beach after beach on the way to some of Denmark's most popular holidays destinations.

This year you should pay a visit to the Home of Hamlet for a true Shakespeare experience, as the town of Elsinore marks the 400 year anniversary of Shakespeare's death as well as the world's longest running Shakespeare Festival.
