Travellers can combine the outstanding Danish cuisine, architecture, and culture with the extraordinary natural landscapes of Iceland. The new advertising campaign from Icelandair and VisitDenmark emphasises how simple it is to fly from Iceland to places in Denmark with Icelandair. An fascinating six-day itinerary between the two nations was developed in cooperation between the airline, VisitDenmark, and 50 Degrees North. There are several chances for tourists at these two locations.

The Cosiest Capital in Europe
The Danish “hygge” culture, which can be loosely translated as cosy, is well-known. Copenhagen is home to some of the top eateries in Scandinavia and serves as Northern Europe’s cosiest capital.

fifty degrees The entire list of must-see sights in Copenhagen is included in North’s itinerary. Visitors get the opportunity to explore Tivoli Gardens, the city’s most well-known attraction. The atmosphere is one of the reasons the amusement park attracts more than 4 million visitors annually. It’s open over big holidays like Halloween, Christmas, and New Year’s, and the rides, restaurants, and concerts there are unmatched.

Nyhavn is a must-see location for travellers to Copenhagen. The city’s name derives from its historical prominence as a centre for ship traders. The location is now well-liked for dining al fresco, people-watching, and hosting a warm Christmas market.

Among other attractions in the city, tourists should see Amalienborg, the queen’s palace, Strget, Copenhagen’s shopping district, the Round Tower, a 17th-century observatory, and the vibrant and contentious Christiania neighbourhood.

Copenhagen is a hotspot for architecture right now in particular. The area has been designated as the 2023 UNESCO World Capital of Architecture. The event’s focal point is the city’s DAC (Danish Architecture Centre), which is a terrific destination to visit and offers guided city tours.

Copenhagen has a fantastic food scene, and Geranium, the Best Restaurant in the World in 2022, is located there. It is situated on the eighth level above Parken, the home of Denmark’s national football team, and offers panoramic views of Faelledparken as well as dishes made by head chef and co-owner Rasmus Kofoed. Refshaleen, one of Copenhagen’s hippest neighbourhoods and a centre for both culinary and artistic culture, is home to the city’s vibrant food scene. Foods of Copenhagen offers culinary excursions that allow visitors to Copenhagen to experience the city’s cuisine.

There are numerous day tours available for people who desire to travel outside of the city. These include exploring North Zealand’s shoreline and the town of Helsingr, where guests can walk in Hamlet’s shoes at the Kronborg Castle. Just one hour from Copenhagen, tourists can visit Odense, the city where Hans Christian Andersen was born, and the brand-new Hans Christian Andersen Hus museum. The opulent Frederiksborg Castle is frequently referred to as the Nordic Versailles. The nearby UNESCO World Heritage Site Roskilde Cathedral is another attraction. The Viking Ship Museum is another location that showcases more than a thousand years of history.

A guided city tour of Copenhagen is part of the 50 Degrees North programme, as does a canal boat tour with Hey Captain and a foodie biking tour with Foods of Copenhagen.
