In Denmark, where winter nights are long and dark, the yuletide season brings forth a magical transformation. Picture thousands of twinkling lights piercing the darkness, joyous festivities, delightful Christmas delicacies, and a unique sense of coziness known as “hygge”.

Ever since the Viking Age, Danes have celebrated winter to illuminate the dark months, creating a tradition that holds a special place in their culture. Join our festive expedition to dive into century-old Christmas food traditions, explore numerous smaller markets scattered across the country, and be captivated by the cozy atmosphere of vibrant Copenhagen and a small island preserving an authentic and romantic Christmas spirit. Come and join the peak of the hygge season!
