If you want to discover the lovely city of Copenhagen, this is a perfect opportunity. In this 5-hour bus tour, the city authorised guide will not only give you a briefing of the history and background of Denmark, show you all the must-sees, but also the authentic stories about Danes and the daily life of Copenhagen.

The bus tour covers all the major attractions and sights of the Danish Capital. We will first see the Little Mermaid, inspired by H. C. Andersen's fairy-tale, the Gefion Fountain, Kastellet (Citadel), Amalienborg Palace - winter residence of the Royal Family where there will be restrooms and a souvenir shop. From the square in front of the Palace you can enjoy the view just across the harbour to the beautiful Royal Danish Opera House. You will also pass by some of the greatest sights like the colourful harbour district of Nyhavn, the Old Stock Exchange, the Christiansborg Palace home to the Danish Parliament and the National Museum. The famous Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Rosenborg Castle and Tivoli Gardens are of course also included in our itinerary.

Lunch will be taking place in one of the city centre restaurants that serves traditional Danish lunch. Our guide will help you to have a peep of Danish culinary art and learn the journey how Danish cuisine has transformed from simple liver pâté to the star winning art on the international stage.

Pick up: 09.45 at the lobby of Scandic Copenhagen Hotel
Return: 14.45 Scandic Copenhagen Hotel.
Lunch will be served at Restaurant Kronborg (or similar)
Price per person: 135 EUR




In this tour we will take you away from the city and explore the beautiful north part of the Sealand Island. The tour will first bring us up to the north, passing the Danish Riviera, offering a beautiful view of the Øresund Strait with the Swedish coast beyond.

Our first stop is an inside visit at Louisiana Museum which is a leading international museum of modern art. Located on the coast, it strikes the rarest of balances between landscape, architecture, and art in a unique interaction. The museum has gained a reputation as a museum in touch with the zeitgeist of the contemporary art world and is included in the Patricia Schultz book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die and ranks 85th on a list of the most visited art museums in the world.

The tour continues to Karen Blixen´s private home. Karen Blixen was a Danish poet, author and storyteller, who also wrote under the pseudonyms Isak Dinesen, Osceola and Pierre Andrezel. Karen Blixen considered herself a storyteller, and is compared with Scheherazade, in A Thousand- and One-Nights fairy tale telling the Caliph Shahryar adventure. Everything you will see in the room is exactly as how Karen Blixen decorated, giving a vivid impression of the writer’s day-to-day surroundings. Some of the furniture came from the farm in Africa, including Denys Finch Hatton’s favourite chair and the chest that Karen Blixen’s steward, Farah, gave her. After the visit at Karen Blixen Museum, the tour will continue back to Copenhagen and the hotel.

Pick up: 09.30 at the lobby of Scandic Copenhagen Hotel
Return: 16.30 Scandic Copenhagen Hotel.
Lunch will be served at Rungsted Kro (or similar)
Price per person: 160 EUR


The history of the Scandinavian countries, particularly during the millennium from 300 A.D. until 1300 A.D., is very much a tale of Viking society, Viking campaigns of colonisation and sagas of heroism. In this tour we would like to give you a taste of the Viking story and one of the cities in Denmark established in the Viking age, Roskilde.

This tour will take you westward from Copenhagen, through farming countryside and small villages, some of which were founded by Vikings more than a thousand years ago. Along the way, you will see a number of Viking burial mounds and dolmens. Upon arrival in Roskilde - which was the capital of Denmark until 1417 - we will pay a visit to the twin spired Roskilde Cathedral. Construction of the Cathedral was commenced during the 12th century and additions have been made through the ages, in differing architectural styles. The Cathedral is the traditional burial place of Danish monarchs and contains 39 royal graves. This Gothic Cathedral is UNESCO listed.

We will continue to the Viking Ship Museum, which contains the remains of 5 Viking vessels which have been salvaged from the bed of Roskilde Fjord, where they were sunk more than a thousand years ago to prevent aggressive intruders gaining access to the town from the sea. After the visits, we will have a 2.5-hour sailing trip onboard of Sagafjord with a fantastic view over Roskildefjord. Lunch will be served onboard. After the sailing trip, we will return back to the hotel.

Pick up: 10.15 at the lobby of Scandic Copenhagen Hotel
Return: 17.00 Scandic Copenhagen Hotel.
Lunch will be served on M/S Sagafjord.
Price per person: 185 EUR
