When it comes to vacations, hotels are slowly becoming a thing of the past. Thanks to applications such as AirBnB, holiday-goers are now slowly leaning towards home rentals. If you have some cash to spare, then you should look into booking your own home away from home. In Denmark, you can even book an entire holiday home for you, your family and your dog to enjoy. Prices may be a bit on the expensive side and the price range may depend on which area you decide to stay in. However, with most holiday homes being situated in the picturesque countryside, these homes are definitely worth checking out.
Located on the North Sea coast and on Denmark’s outermost edge, the town of Hvide Sande remains among the country’s top tourist destinations. Even with its size, this small town features lots of quaint beaches, one-of-a-kind dune landscapes, fishing boats and lovely holiday homes. Hvide Sande offers tourists the best of both worlds. On one hand, it has plenty of room for rest and relaxation for visitors looking for a tranquil holiday. On the other hand, the town also offers several potential activities for those looking for a fun-filled and active holiday. With the myriad of options to choose from, Hvide Sande should definitely be in your Denmark trip list.
Denmark may not be the first country that comes to mind when thinking about a beach trip but it has some underrated beaches. The good thing about most of their beaches is that they are welcoming towards dogs. Some of your top options include Parry’s Beach, Peaceful Bay, Light Beach and Boat Harbour.
Keeping up with the dog-friendly trend, Denmark boasts a number of dog-friendly cafés where you can bring your dogs. While some only allow your dog to sit with you while you have a coffee or meal, there are some cafés that offer drinks for owners and their dogs. Examples of cafés in Denmark that welcome dogs are Raven’s Coffee, Mrs. Jones’ Café, Luscious Organic Café and Shop and Boston Brewery.
Being one of the most naturally beautiful countries in Europe, Denmark unquestionably has so much in store for its residents and tourists who are visiting the country. When planning your next holiday trip with your dog, you should definitely consider Denmark and check out all the places and dog-friendly activities that the country has to offer.
