Books inspired by Denmark
Our hand-picked selection of books to get you in the mood to travel
A well-written and humorous book giving an insight into Scandinavia, its people and the enviably simpler Nordic ways and culture. It covers five countries including Iceland and will have you wanting to move to one of them!
The author gives herself a year to uncover the formula behind why Denmark is considered "the happiest place on earth." She explores all things Danish to see where and how they're getting it right. Travelscoop's Paul read this book before a trip to Copenhagen and loved it.
Frazzled mum Alice Ray likes to think she’s on top everything. But after spectacularly embarrassing herself at work, she finally gives in to her sister’s pleas to take a much needed break. However, this is not the luxury spa holiday Alice hoped for – instead, she finds herself in Denmark, in the middle of nowhere, on a ‘How to be a Viking’ getaway.
The magic ingredient to the Danes' reputation for being the world's happiest nation? Who knows? But the idea behind hygge is a lovely one: and it's all about a feeling that encompasses "the art of creating intimacy", "cosiness of the soul", "taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things", "cosy togetherness" and "the pursuit of everyday pleasures." This lovely little book helps with the understanding and creation of hygge.

I got dinner on the first night, breakfast and lunch the following day, a standard room and access to the spa facilities throughout. I...
11th August 2018 by AndyReview of Champneys Health Spa Part 1: Finding a good deal and the booking process
OK, first things first; I booked this offer with sky-high expectations, never having experienced a spa break before, so I probably have myself to blame for being slightly underwhelmed. I wanted to write this review to give an insight into my experience through my eyes, but I don’t want my over-inflated expectations to skew the outcome so I’ll do my best to keep it impartial. The offer actually came through from Secret Escapes so let me start my review there. My wife’s birthday...
