Hiking and ‘Hygge’ in Denmark

More and more people are discovering the beauty of the smiling landscape of Denmark, which of course is best explored by lacing up the hiking shoes. There are no mountains in Denmark, except of course from Himmelbjerget (“Sky Mountain”) the ironically named 150m-high hill overlooking the Silkeborg Lake District. The landscape is pleasingly diverse, however, with rolling hills, valleys, lakes, forest, heathland and coastal trails, offering an impressive variety of walking trails. A hiking holiday in Denmark also gives you the opportunity to experience the famous Danish hygge, as you eat and sleep in some of the many charming old inns, and of course the hiking can be combined with different types of sailing, fishing, bathing etc.
