Today, you will be met at the port and then depart with your private driver and guide to experience some of the finest of the Danish countryside and history.
We drive through beautiful forests north of Copenhagen to Hilleroed to visit the splendid moated Frederiksborg Castle, built in Renaissance style by King Christian IV in 1625 (entrance included). The castle is today housing a splendid collection of antiques, art and other treasures, as well as an impressive chapel, used for Royal marriages. We proceed to Fredensborg, the royal summer residence, built in 18th century Italian style and superbly situated amidst a magnificent park. After a photo stop we continue to Elsinore, the home of Kronborg Castle.
Kronborg Castle is well-known as the fabulous backdrop of Shakespeare’s play “Hamlet” and recently listed on UNESCO’s World Heritage. The castle was erected between 1574 and 1585 and offers a breathtaking view of the Sound, the waters between Denmark and Sweden.
You will walk into the castle to enjoy tapestries with a wealth of details, paintings on ceilings and walls, doors of carved ebony, magnificent halls and will imagine the luxurious balls and rich court life of the Danish Renaissance kings.
When visiting Kronborg Castle (entrance included), a great experience is to explore the creepy crypts and catacombs of the castle. Hidden underneath the Castle, Holger the Dane (Holger Danske), an imposing stone statue and legendary figure in Danish culture is sitting on his rock throne. It is said that if Denmark is ever in trouble, Holger the Dane will wake from his rock throne and defend her.
Before returning to Copenhagen, visit the prize-winning Maritime Museum of Denmark.
The unique experience begins even before you enter the museum. A sloping bridge takes you down into a former dry dock where you enter a fabulous underground museum, designed by the world-renowned Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) architects.
Here you will meet a colorful world of numerous exhibitions telling the story of Denmark, as one of the leading maritime nations both past and present. The museum’s rich collections are evocatively and dramatically exhibited with large video projections on the architecture. Here you can see, listen and interact as you discover the maritime world.
Following your day tour, settle into Skt Petri for an overnight stay.

After breakfast, depart with your driver and guide on a one hour boat tour of Copenhagen. Copenhagen is an old harbour and maritime city, and one of the most beautiful and enjoyable ways to see the city and its most important sights is from the sea. We embark on a private boat at the old fish market in Gammel Strand.
The tour will take you through the old channels and the port of Copenhagen. You will see many of the main building such as Christiansborg’s Palace, the Naval Church and the old Stock-market building. Entering the bay, we will pass the old Sixtus Battery see the symbol of Denmark, the “Little Mermaid” and the Palace of Amalienborg before entering the channel of Christianshavn, where you will experience a beautiful mixture of old warehouses, floating houses and modern architecture.
After the tour drive to Malmo, the third largest city of Sweden. Crossing the Øresund Bridge and arrive to begin a 2-hour city tour. Visit the many sights of the city including Malmøhus castle and Turning torso, the tallest residential building in the Nordic countries. Designed and constructed by the renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, the twisted tower in the Western Harbour of Malmö is one of Skåne’s most visited landmarks.
After some time at leisure to explore, you will return to Copenhagen to pick up your luggage and then transfer to the airport for your flight to London. On arrival, you will be met and transferred by road to Gatwick for an overnight stay at the Sofitel Airport Hotel.

Answers to some questions you might have:
- The rooms at the Conrad are interconnecting, and they are a Grand Deluxe Room with three single beds (for the children) and a King Superior Room with one double bed (for you).
- The Disneyland Paris package includes entrance fees and fast-pass, without a guide. However, a private guide can be arranged at an additional cost (it’s quite expensive at over $1,000 but please let me know if they wish to add this in and I will let you know the firm price).
- The Eurostar train is more convenient than flying, as it takes only 2-hours and 30-minutes from central Paris into central London, saving lots of time on airport transfers and waiting time in the airport itself. For the Eurostar, passengers are expected to check-in at the station just 45-30 minutes before the train departs.
