The Escorted Motorhome Tour

Discover Denmark on our Escorted European Motorhome Tour.

Denmark is the smallest of the Scandinavian countries, but once ruled all of Norway and much of southern Sweden. Before then, it was home for fierce Viking warriors.

Geographically Denmark is made up of three main landmasses – the islands of Zealand and Funen and the peninsula of Jutland. Zealand is Denmark’s largest island and is home to Copenhagen, the exciting capital city with a beautiful old centre, and amazing array of museums. North of the city lie some of the country’s finest beaches and most impressive castles. Here you can visit the ornate Frederiksborg Slot in Hillerød and the vast Kronborg Slot at Helsingør.  Helsingør also features the excellent Maritime Museum of Denmark. Funen is renowned for pretty villages, sandy beaches and Odense, the birthplace and home town of Hans Christian Andersen. Jutland has two of the liveliest Danish cities in Århus and Aalborg, as well as scenery alternating between lonely beaches, rolling hills and jagged coastline.

Day 1 & Day 2: Ribe

We start our tour in the oldest city of Denmark with its stunning medieval centre, where we will have a group dinner in the evening giving the group time to get to know each other. On day 2 you can take a Tractor-bus to the seal banks in the Wadden Sea National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage attraction.

Day 3: Ribe – Ringkøbing Fjord

On our route you can stop at the colossal sculpture “Man Meets the Sea” in Esbjerg and at the Blåvandshuk lighthouse with its splendid beaches, the most westerly point of Denmark.

Day 4: Ringkøbing Fjord – Jammerbugt Beach

Get up early and visit the famous fish auction. On the way to the next destination you can either drive along the coastal towns and through the National Park Thy, or head inland via the fjords and stop at the open-air museum.

Day 5: Jammerbugt Beach– Skagen

After spending the night at one of the largest beach areas in Denmark, we will head north direction Skagen. On the way you can see the Rubjerg Knude lighthouse, which sits on a moving sand dune and was saved in 2019 from falling into the see, by moving it 70m inland on specially built rails! Another worthwhile stop is Hirtshals and the North Sea Oceanarium.

Day 6: Skagen

We will have a full day in Skagen, and take the tractor bus up to Grenen, the most northly tip of Denmark, where the Baltic meets the North Sea. You can also walk into Skagen to visit the glass-art manufacturers or one of the several museums.

Day 7: Skagen – Aalborg

After having spent a lot of time close to the sea, we will now move to Aalborg, a larger inland city. The enchanting old town centre is close to our campsite and you can visit Denmark’s largest burial site originating from both the Germanic Iron Age and the Viking Age. On the way to Aalborg you can visit Voergaard castle with its famous art collection.

Day 8: Aalborg – Aarhus

Today we move on to the second largest city of Denmark, Aarhus. On route visit the Vikingecenter Fyrkat with the Viking Ring Castle and visitor centre.

Day 9: Aarhus

The former Viking town Aarhus has a lot to offer. It has an historic town centre, museums, like the popular open-air museum Den Gamble By and Marselisborg castle, the summer residence of the Danish Royal family.

Day 10: Aarhus – Odense

On the way to Odense, take a small detour to Billund to visit Legoland, or if you prefer, stop at the UNESCO World heritage site Jelling Mounds. You can spend the rest of the day in Odense the 3rd largest city in Denmark and the birthplace of the writer Hans Christian Andersen.

Day 11: Odense – Faaborg

Today we travel back to the coast to Faaborg, located in the south of Funen island. On the way, take a little detour to visit the charming Egeskov castle.

Day 12: Faaborg – North Zealand

Today we drive across the Storebælt to the Zealand island. The great belt bridge and tunnel system is one of the largest in the world! On the other side we will visit Roskilde and take a trip on a Nordic boat. The museum and shipyard, where you can see how the original Viking ships were made, are also worth a visit. For a more cultural experience see the impressive Cathedral in the town centre.

Day 13: North Zealand – Copenhagen

Now it is only a short drive from our campsite on the coast to Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. On your way do not miss Helsingør and the Kronborg castle a UNESCO world heritage site.

Day 14: Copenhagen

The final day can be used to relax before the journey home, or to go into Copenhagen to see the Little Mermaid and watch the changing of the guards at the Amalienborg castle. Alternatively, just enjoy the flair of the old town centre, where everything can be explored by foot or by boat or visit the historic fun fair at the Tivoli.
