Denmark

The land of the Vikings is the largest country in Europe in terms of area! Because what many people don't know: Denmark includes the Faroe Islands and Greenland! So Denmark has impressive nature to offer! But you can also experience 7300 km of coastline and impressive forests on the “mainland” of Denmark. So it's not just worth visiting the Danish capital Copenhagen!

& Camping

In contrast to Norway and Sweden, there is no right of public access in Denmark. Therefore, you cannot simply spend the night in the great outdoors. However, you are permitted to spend the night at so-called nature campsites. These are designated areas in nature where you are allowed to camp under certain conditions. You can find the sites here. Overnight stays in tents are also permitted in selected forest areas. You can find them here.
