Denmark Tours & Package Trips
From Copenhagen to the North Sea coast. Discover Denmark alongside Norway and Sweden with our range of Scandinavia group tours!
Classy Copenhagen is one of Europe's rising stars, increasing in popularity as a city break location. A thousand year old settlement, the city is enriched with history but has also well and truly emerged into the 21st Century. Restaurants, shops and bars abound, the 17th Century port of Nyhavn is well worth a visit, and Amalienborg Palace is home to the Danish Royal Family.
To the west and the north of Copenhagen lies the rest of the country, jutting into the North Sea. Dramatic scenery awaits, and other highlights include the second city of Aarhus and the northern outpost of Hirtshals.
Our Denmark tours combine the country with its Scandinavian neighbours, Norway and Sweden. From Oslo to Stockholm and Bergen, you won't miss a thing on these escorted group trips. For a truly wild adventure, you can also explore the Danish territory of Greenland on a bucket list expedition cruise!
Our Denmark small group escorted tours take in the best of the country, including Copenhagen. These tours vary in style, some with semi-independent arrangements and some are escorted by an English-speaking tour leader, staying in well-located, modern 3-4 star hotels. And with guaranteed departures, you can book your tour in confidence! As well as Denmark, these tours take in the best of Norway and Sweden - a perfect Scandinavian soiree!
Our Copenhagen City Stay is perfect if you're looking to explore the Danish capital on a long weekend, or as part of a longer trip to Europe. Staying in a 4-star hotel, you'll enjoy a guided city tour and plenty of free time to discover the city at leisure.
For a far flung adventure, set sail in Greenland! This vast island, the world's largest, is a district of Denmark, despite being more than 50 times the size of the mainland country! Staying aboard a purpose-built expedition ship, these tours take you to all the main highlights, from Nuuk and Ilulissat to the majestic icebergs and marine wildlife to be spotted out at sea. When not relaxing in their cabin, travellers can look out for whales on the viewing deck, or relax in the onboard swimming pool and jacuzzi on the expedition ship. There is also a spa, bar, and two onboard restaurants to enjoy.

The Best of our Denmark Trips
Copenhagen is the start point for our Denmark group tours and a delightful European city to explore. Greenland is at the other end of the spectrum, a vastly wild and remote territory to the country's extreme north-west. These are the best places to visit in Denmark on our trips.
Copenhagen offers a dynamic mix of culture, history, and modernity. Start your exploration at Nyhavn, the iconic waterfront district, where you can enjoy colourful buildings, waterfront cafes, and boat tours. Nearby, visit the famous Little Mermaid statue and the historic Amalienborg Palace for the changing of the guard. Copenhagen's biking culture is famous, so rent a bicycle to explore the city's many bike lanes and parks. Discover the trendy district of Norrebro for hip cafes, boutiques, and street art.
The world's largest island is a vast, untouched wilderness, home to ice-filled fjords, and unique cultural heritage. Start your journey in the capital, Nuuk, where you can explore the National Museum to learn about the island's history and indigenous cultures. Ilulissat, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is home to the stunning Sermeq Kujalleq glacier, offering a chance to witness icebergs calving into the sea. The island's wildlife is also a major attraction, and you can spot humpback whales and seals along the coast.
Lesser-known Aarhus is Denmark's second city, known for its cobbled streets and cultural scene. The city's Latin Quarter houses charming boutiques, cafes, and historical buildings. Aarhus is steeped in history, and the Old Town (Den Gamle By) is an open-air museum recreating Danish life from centuries past. For a seaside escape, head to the Aarhus waterfront and relax by the harbour, or visit the Moesgaard Museum to delve into Denmark's prehistoric past.
The northern town of Hirtshals is where our tours depart Denmark, bound for Norway by overnight cruise. This delightful destination is known for its natural beauty and maritime heritage. Start your visit at the Hirtshals Lighthouse, offering breathtaking panoramic views of the North Sea and the town. Hirtshals' sandy beaches and rugged coastal landscapes are perfect for nature enthusiasts. Take a hike along the coast, enjoy windsurfing or kitesurfing, or simply relax by the sea.
