Beyond its foodie capital, Copenhagen, Denmark is a beautiful, lush country, bordered by the North and Baltic Seas and with thousands of small islands belonging to it, including the relatively unvisited Faroe Islands, a self-governed group of 18 volcanic islands between Iceland and the Shetland Islands. There are many incredible places to explore and we know the best hotels and private villas to call your home during your trip.
 
Here is our selection of eight amazing photographs of Denmark + the Faroe Islands:

Copenhagen, Denmark. New Harbour canal

Nyhavn (or the New Harbour Canal) in Copenhagen is a lovely spot to explore. Once a busy commercial port, today it is a beautiful area with elegant, renovated old houses lining the waterway and an array of cafés and restaurants. It is the perfect place to sit back with a cold drink or a delicious plateful, listen to jazz and soak up the laid-back atmosphere.


River in Aarhus, Denmark

In Aarhus, the capital of Jutland and the second oldest town in Denmark, the Gudenaa River snakes slowly past traditional, colourful houses.


Henne Strand, North sea coast landscape Jutland Denmark

The Henne Strand is a long and sandy beach, lapped by the North Sea, on the west coast of Denmark’s Jutland peninsula. Its enormous size means it is rarely busy, despite being popular, and it has a wonderfully unspoilt wilderness feel to it.


Mulafossur Waterfall Faroe Islands

Lying between Iceland and the Shetland Islands, the Faroe Islands are remote and incredible. Landscapes here are dramatic and the archipelago is home to rugged and rocky coastlines, spectacular fjords and majestic waterfalls, such as the Mulafossur Waterfall.


Cliffs Faroe Islands

Boasting astounding natural beauty, the Faroe Islands are encircled by dramatic and steep cliffs and there are abundant exhilarating cycling and walking trails to explore.


Gjógv is a village located on the northeast tip of the island of Eysturoy, in the Faroe Islands and 63 km north by road from the capital of Tórshavn.

The village of Gjógv, on the north-eastern point of the isle of Eysturoy in the Faroe Islands, is wonderfully unspoilt, with the buildings preserved in traditional Faroese style. The village is named after the spectacular 200m-long gorge that links the village to the sea, which the locals have used as a harbour for centuries.
