Copenhagen: Roskilde, Frederiksborg & Kronborg Day Tour

4. Copenhagen: Roskilde, Frederiksborg & Kronborg Day Tour

Enjoy a scenic sightseeing tour of North Sealand on an 8.5-hour excursion from Copenhagen, and visit the royal monuments of Kronborg Castle and Frederiksborg Castle and the World Heritage site of Roskilde Cathedral. Ideal for those who want to explore further than the city center to see as much as possible of historic Denmark, but are short of time, you will travel in a small group for a more personalized experience. The tour includes time to explore the imposing exteriors and interiors of Frederiksborg and Kronborg castles, the latter set on the banks of the Sund between Denmark and Sweden, and most notable as the site of Elsinore in Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.” Soak up the romantic setting of Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød, surrounded by a beautiful lake and gardens. The guide will take you to Roskilde to visit Roskilde Cathedral, the burial site of 39 Danish kings and queens, including Ingrid of Sweden, spouse of Denmark’s Frederick IX, father of the current Queen Margrethe II. The last stop on your tour will be the Viking Ship Museum to see rebuilt models and excavated ships from the days when the Vikings rampaged their way - and conquered - much of Western Europe and the North Atlantic. Please note, that between November and March and most of April, the tour does not include a visit to the Cathedral's interior but rather a walk around the impressive structure and an introduction to the Cathedral's place in history.

Copenhagen: 1 or 2-Hour Segway Tour

6. Copenhagen: 1 or 2-Hour Segway Tour

The guided Segway tour gives you the opportunity to explore Copenhagen in a fun and unique way in just 1 or 2 hours. As the only officially authorized Segway tour provider in Denmark, you will benefit from touring on the newest Segway machines with experienced guides, ready to give you first class customer service — as a bonus, you will help keep Copenhagen green & clean as Segways are zero-emissions. Arrive 15 minutes prior to start for check-in and training where you will receive your helmet, sign our waiver, get your radio, and meet your guide. You will then be individually trained in driving a Segway on a spacious and quiet training ground until you're comfortable taking to the streets. Don't worry if you haven't tried it before — it is super easy and most people learn it within minutes. The Segway is an incredibly intuitive machine. Some great routes are planned for you on both the 1 and 2-hour tour. All tours begin along the water for a nice stretch in a no-car zone. This is a great way to take off and still see iconic sights such as The Little Mermaid, which is one of the first photo stops. In fact, you will see famous must-see sights on both these tours including Nyhavn, The Royal Opera House, Amalienborg Palace, The Marble Church, Kastellet (The Citadel), as well as some hidden gems. The 1-hour tour covers over 10 of the major monuments and is a fast and fun way to see the city center from Langelinie Kaj all the way to Nyhavn. The 2-hour tour also ventures into the inner city and you'll cruise by The Black Diamond, The Royal Library Garden, Christiansborg Palace, City Hall Square, Tivoli Gardens, the cozy Latin Quarter, and Kongens Nytorv. You'll also take a small break halfway through at the cafe in the Royal Danish Theatre, where there will be some special offers exclusively for you if you wish (no purchase required). A Segway tour is a really great way to get acquainted with Copenhagen, plus you'll get up close to sights where cars are not allowed, and you can cover much more ground faster than you could on foot. You will truly feel the rich history of Copenhagen. And don't worry, the stories are light and fresh but still with substance. Just imagine cruising right up on the square at Amalienborg Palace and waving to the Queen, if she's home. Or driving right through Kastellet (The Citadel) — a still-functioning military site from the 1600s.  After your tour, you will receive a fun Segway Souvenir and you are very welcome to join your guide for a complimentary organic refreshment, and stay to enjoy the waterfront view. All tours include photo stops and only consist of small groups for your comfort and safety. Hope you are now ready to Segway cruise Copenhagen.

Copenhagen: CopenHill Ski Pass Including Rental Gear

9. Copenhagen: CopenHill Ski Pass Including Rental Gear

Enjoy the traditional winter sport of skiing year-round at CopenHill. Located in the center of Copenhagen, CopenHill is an active clean energy power plant with a rooftop that has been transformed into a skiing slope. Instead of snow, you will be skiing on an environmentally friendly plastic surface. The roof is 85 meters high, offering astonishing views over the city for an extra special experience. After checking in at the ski-rental station to collect your included rental gear and lift pass, you can start skiing. CopenHill is divided into 3 levels. The upper level is characterized as a black/red piste and is recommended for advanced skiers only. The middle and bottom level is similar to a blue/green piste and recommended for beginners. There is also a slalom course, freestyle park, and, of course, an area for children. The lift systems consist of 4 lifts: the bottom 3 are magic carpet lifts while the upper to steep section is a plate lift. The technique you use to ski on the plastic surface is the same as you would use on real snow, but the feeling will be slightly different. Please remember to start slow and get used to the plastic surface to ensure everyone's safety.
