When thinking about Sweden, most people probably think of the lakes with its red cabins, wide landscapes and... well... reindeers. While we did see lots of lakes and even more red cabins on our road trip in southern Sweden, we somehow missed the northern wilderness and its special fauna. This is why, we decided to go North and experience another Sweden, a much more lonely Sweden with unpaved roads, an uninhabited landscape as far as the eye can see and, of course, reindeers, these beautiful animals from the North.
Most people, when thinking about Denmark, think about its capital with its colorful houses, its canals and last but not least its Mermaid statue. Who in Europe has not already thought about a week-end trip to Copenhagen? But there is more to the country than just its capital. Indeed, Denmark is a beautiful country with diverse countrysides from huge white sanded beaches, dunes and cliffs to wide yellow rape seed fields. This is the Denmark we wanted to discover. Here are our 10 must-sees.
If you love nature, an excursion to Mandø island, a small island of 8 km2 with only 40 inhabitants in the middle of the Wadden sea, is a must-do in Denmark. The small access road which gets flooded twice per day makes this day trip an unforgettable experience.
