We leave Copenhagen after breakfast to go to Denmark’s second largest island, Fyn. It was on this island, that Hans Christian Andersen was born. We visit his home and see where he grew up. Today at Falsled Kro in Millinge, a small village of only 500 people, there are other fairy tales being told: that of a man who turns his recipes into true Scandinavian legends. At chef Hallundbaeks table, the salmon is home smoked, the turbot comes with vegetables grown in the own garden and everything that is served is seasonal. The rooms are small lofts, with their walls of white bricks, minimal decorations and soft lighting they are very romantic. We will have dinner at Falsled Kro and stay the night.

Day 3: Millinge - Henne

Following breakfast at Falsled Kro, we head west. First stop is Mandø in the Wadden Sea, which is one of the world’s most important tidal flats - a large unique nature reserve and extremely scenic. At Mandø, we will go on an oyster safari - picking oysters directly from the sea-bottom and sampling them accompanied by champagne. The oyster are delicious, and not to mention an aphrodisiac. After leaving Mandø we will follow the coast to Henne Kirkeby Kro - a newly renovated Danish inn. The inn is tucked away near the West Coast of Jutland and is far off the beaten path. The brilliant chef Paul Cunningham gives an ultra modern and innovative take on local ingredients harvested mainly from their own on-site garden. It was named the best restaurant in Denmark in 2011 and it is truly worth the trip. We will eat the very ambitious gourmet menu and sleep in the luxury rooms.

There will be plenty of time to explore every corner of this amazing place and have lunch in one of the small restaurants.

After breakfast we will leave Skagen and go to Ebeltoft. Ebeltof is one of the most romantic small towns in Denmark, due to the natural beauty of the area, its old town center with cobble-stoned streets and centuries-old half-timbered houses.
