Denmark is often called the happiest country on Earth, and it’s easy to see why. This is a place where the good life comes easy, whether you’re shopping in Aarhus, feasting your way around Copenhagen, or exploring the Danish countryside, which is home to endless tracts of farmland and some magnificent sandy beaches. Here’s a nice bonus: Denmark is probably the cheapest country in Scandinavia. Budget carefully and you’ll find enough fun things to do to keep you busy for weeks.
One of Denmark’s most beautiful islands, Ærø is easily visited in a weekend from Copenhagen and is a great place for island-hopping adventures on a budget!
