Green fields, great food and wide vistas! Experience with a local, private guide


Leaving the city behind for two full days, we will explore the Danish countryside and coast on this private tour. South of Copenhagen is an archipelago famous for its local produce; great soil and mild climate makes the area perfect for apples, beets and dairy.

Along the way, we will stop at Stevns Cliff (UNESCO World Heritage), on up to six islands, in impossibly charming small villages, at some great restaurants, the art project Dodekalitten, and a lovely hotel.

If you are curious, we can visit places making great produce. I recommend a dairy farm and an orchard but the choices are many (and tough!): Cherry wine? Chocolate? Hard rock candy? Honey? Mustard? Mushrooms? Beer? Ice cream? Yarn?

I will tailor this tour according to your curiosity - we can focus on sampling food, on seeing as many pretty spots as possible, on historical sites or on sustainability which the farmers are fast becoming experts at.

I am in love with this part of Denmark, so contact me to learn more about this summer adventure!

Itinerary

First, we will stop at Stevns Cliff (UNESCO World Heritage). If you feel adventurous, we can walk down to the beach and look up at limestone cliffs offering exceptional evidence of life through 65 million years!

Stopping on some of the small islands in the Southern archipelago to enjoy the quintessentially Danish landscape and villages, both days will be designed according to what we have planned together; which locations YOU wish to explore.

Arriving at a jewel of a hotel (owned in part by the chef Claus Meyer who recently earned Michelin stars for his New York restaurants), an evening of fantastic food based on local produce and a stroll in the cosy town awaits.

On the second day, there are two places you just have to see: The art project Dodekalitten (it's like a modern day version of Stonehenge) and my favourite, super quaint village.

When we return to Copenhagen, I am sure you'll feel full of life, adventure and knowledge of Denmark.

A Recent Review of this tour

Sofie is fantastic—10 stars if I could. We spent several days touring both the Copenhagen area and Roskilde, but the true highlight was getting out to the Isle of Møn where my family originated. Sofie arranged everything including a visit to a local farm which we had requested. We stayed overnight in a beautiful Inn with a Michelin star restaurant. Her flexibility in allowing us to spend as much time as we wanted in places was greatly appreciated. Definitely one of the best travel experiences ever.
