While Copenhagen may be the poster child for Danish tourism, North Jutland, in the northernmost corner of the country, offers a refreshing alternative. This picturesque region is a chance for travelers to discover a lesser-known side of Denmark’s personality, filled with welcoming locals, pristine landscapes, incredible culinary adventures, and fascinating cultural attractions. From the friendly ambiance of Aalborg, to the artistic haven of Skagen, here’s a five-day itinerary for the perfect road trip adventure through North Jutland, Denmark's best-kept secret.
Day 1 & 2: Aalborg
Explore: The Kunsten Museum of Modern Art is a cultural standout that is sure to leave a big impression on art enthusiasts (and even art amateurs). It has a wonderful collection of contemporary and modern art, including works by Danish and international artists. With its dazzling architectural design and inspiring art, Kunsten is guaranteed to stimulate the senses. The Utzon Center is a must even for those who know nothing about architecture. The center showcases intriguing architectural exhibitions, workshops, and events that promote forward-thinking design. Best of all, this dynamic center is also ideal for families with kids. In line with its mission to show that 'Architecture is fun,' it includes kid-friendly activities that include building with LEGO.
Stay and Eat: Restaurant Emil offers a fresh and innovative approach to dining, with a focus on seafood and local produce. The mission of owner and chef Emil Thaarup is to introduce fish in new and delectable ways (and boy does he succeed!), emphasizing sustainable sourcing whenever possible. Pier 5 Hotel, set on Aalborg's waterfront, offers modern, beautifully renovated rooms for a top-notch stay. The mouthwatering breakfast buffet is one of the tastiest in the entire region.
Day 2: Thy Region
Explore: Arguably one of the most fascinating (and not just a little disturbing) museums in Denmark, if not all of Northern Europe, is the newly opened REGAN Vest. It was built in the 1960s as a secret sanctuary for the government and the royal family in the event of a third world war. Hidden nearly 200 feet beneath the forest floor, this underground city is mesmerizing and is a one-of-a-kind window into the past. The museum also has incredibly thought-provoking displays and interactive exhibits that highlight the terrible destructive force of a nuclear war. You must book a tour online.
Stop in Klitmøller, a quaint fishing village known by locals as "Cold Hawaii," it’s renowned for its vibrant surfing scene and laid-back ethos. Just a 15-minute drive away is the National Park Center Thy, which offers valuable information on Denmark’s oldest national park. Before you set off on a

Scandinavian Airlines, or SAS, is plotting its next steps as the airline prepares to emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Part of that is looking forward to its departure from Star Alliance, which it co-founded 25 years ago, as it moves forward with new ownership and prepares to join SkyTeam.
The mainsail knows how to put up a fight. “Keep pulling!” calls Helene Moodie, the co-captain on deck, as I battle against its weight. I cling onto the hoisting line tight enough to feel every fibre, and look up, tracing its course along the mast to the sail, 90 metres tall and like a stage curtain waiting to be lifted. “Keep pul-ling!” she instructs again, bringing my attention back to the task at hand. I heave with as much force as I can muster, throwing my entire body back. A last yank, and the show begins. The sail catches the wind, billowing full like surging swells. We’re on our way, fast and proud.
Nowhere in London has a more refined glow at Christmas than Mayfair. Between Piccadilly and Oxford Street and still largely owned by Grosvenor Estate which belongs to the Duke of Westminster, it was largely rural - and used as pasturelands - until the late 17th century. Today, its streets and squares are home to some of the city’s oldest, and most famous hotels and shops.
Danish design, a style characterized by its simplicity, excellent craftsmanship, and focus on function, has become known around the world for its seamless blend of tradition with contemporary aesthetics.
Ringed by the waters of the Baltic, the Kattegat and the Øresund, Malmö is Sweden’s third-largest city. Originally part of Denmark, it became Swedish in 1658. Today, you get the sense that the southern port city is thumbing its nose at both Copenhagen and Stockholm by remaining far cheaper to live in than either capital — and in doing so, it’s attracted a crowd of dedicated creatives unafraid of experimentation.
This year, airlines have been rolling out Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales that have us dreaming about everything from Scandinavian escapes (courtesy of SAS Airlines) to exploring even further afield (hello, South Africa and Seychelles).
After Sri Lanka and Thailand, Vietnam is likely to be the next destination to offer visa-free entry to Indians. According to local media, Vietnam Minister of Culture, Sports, and Tourism Nguyen Van Hung suggested it allow Indians and Chinese to visit without a visa for a short period. As of now, only nationals of Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, and Finland can enter Vietnam without a visa.
For every world-famous European museum like the Louvre or Prado, there’s one that flies under the radar. The following collection is made up of both quirky & unusual museums and those that are home to world-class collections but just aren’t as well known as they should be.
