From Copenhagen, Aarhus, Aalborg, and more… Denmark is filled with things to do and sights to see, whether you’re a local or somebody traveling to Denmark from afar.
This page, however, isn’t for the locals… this is for people who are visiting Denmark or thinking about booking a tour to Denmark and want to learn a little bit more.
3. Decide What You MUST See On Your Denmark Vacation
What’s drawing you to Denmark in the first place?
Is it on the way to somewhere else you’re visiting, or is Denmark a place you’ve wanted to visit your entire life?
Either way, make a list of what you really want to see, what you expect to see, and what you must see in order to consider your visit a success. This is the list of the things you really, really want to do and you’re willing to sacrifice other experiences in order to definitely do these. These are the things you will prioritize, and that you don’t want to compromise on.
Beyond these core experiences that you want to have in Denmark, you can start to fill in the blanks based on what fits your location, your schedule, your budget, and your time in Denmark.
2. Planning a Tour in Denmark
There’s something great about just hopping on a flight, showing up, and seeing what happens when you visit a new place and that can be great. However…
Even for the most seat-of-their-pants travelers, taking just a bit of time to plan some tours, or even to look at what some of the options are, can give you ideas and opportunities for creating travel memories that you would have otherwise missed out on.
You can learn more about Denmark tours on a site like TiffanyTours (but you’ll need to translate it if you don’t speak Danish. You can use Google Translate, just visit the tool here and click the “Websites” icon to translate an entire site.)
This also ties into the previous point, about deciding what you absolutely must see in Denmark. If your main reason for visiting is too see the Copenhagen Zoo, but you also want to make sure to see the Viking burial grounds in Lindholm Høje, and you’re also curious about the The Open-Air Museum in Kongens Lyngby, then getting a pro to help you plan a tour that includes all of this can take a lot of the pressure off you, so you can just enjoy the country.
1. Don’t Be Afraid To Go Off-Script in Denmark
You can do all of the planning in the world, but part of what makes someone a great traveler who gets the most of their trip is having adaptability and flexibility. You might have a tour planned, but an opportunity pops up to do something incredible, and it’s about knowing when to stick to the plan or when to go off-script.
The point is, don’t be afraid to have a change of plans once you’re in Denmark, because there are a lot of things you can plan and tours that you can do, but at the end of the day, if you’re living in the moment on vacation, some of the best moments and memories will be the spontaneous things you couldn’t have possibly planned for.
And how are you going to keep track of all this? Consider using a travel journal, for starters. It’s a great way to preserve memories.
