Dine with the Danes

5/5 - (1 vote)

One of the best ways to experience a new country is to meet the people and get involved with the local culture and Dine with the Danes offers just such an experience for those who visit Denmark. 
Dine with the Danes offers tourists to Denmark the opportunity to have dinner with a local Danish family.  This is a fantastic opportunity to experience the culture, the wonderful home-cooked favorites of the Danes, and the amazing hospitality of what they call “hygge.”  This term can only be translated into “coziness” and it is offered to tourists of all ages, even to families with children. 

In order to experience Dine with the Danes you can simply email the relevant details and give a minimum of a week's (preferably more) notice.  Then you will be able to get as close to the Danish culture as possible when you visit the country.
