Copenhagen will surprise you at every corner, with its ability to be simultaneously an open-air museum and a lively urban center.

Denmark, with its thousand-year-old history, invites travelers to immerse themselves in the Viking era, a period rich in myths, legends, and heroic deeds. For those traveling in a motorhome or caravan, following the Vikings’ footsteps becomes a fascinating adventure, which combines the discovery of breathtaking landscapes with a deeper understanding of a culture that has left an indelible mark on the historical fabric of Scandinavia.

As you walk through the majestic halls and cold crypts, let yourself be transported back in time, imagining the life of knights and ladies who once roamed these corridors.
