Denmark is becoming more accessible for U.S. Travelers.
Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) is launching new service to the country with a direct route from New York (Newark) to Aalborg (AAL).
The North Jutland region of Denmark, is not well-known to travelers in North America, but it is a region worth discovering.
The area and its main city, Aalborg, has been on the New York Times' 52 Places to Go list and is renowned for architecture, natural attractions and gastronomy, which has been recognized by Forbes.
Aalborg is well connected to many other popular destinations in Europe. It's just a 35-minute connection to Copenhagen, and it's connected to Norway and Sweden via ferry. SAS also offers a stopover program for travel agents and tour operators booking in the GDS, making a flight from NYC to AAL to Copenhagen back to NYC a unique, seamless trip offering for travelers.
Visitors looking to spend time in North Jutland will be rewarded with an abundance of activities from culinary experiences to outdoor adventures. It is a coastal area dotted with cute seaside villages. Visitors can stay in holiday cottages or coastal hotels in quaint towns like LÃÂ¸kken or Blokhus. For travelers who want a preview of what the Danish seaside is like, the Danish television show "The Seaside Hotel" is currently airing on PBS.
Gastronomy is front and center and features prominently in its hotels. A prime example is Villa Vest and SvinklÃÂ¸v Seaside hotels. In fact, the SvinklÃÂ¸v Seaside is run by the former world champion chef, Kenneth Hansen. Other options for visitors include an overnight at Comwell Hotel Hvide Hus, which is home to Aalborg's bestcocktail bar.
The 12,000-kilometer journey will take 30 passengers from Istanbul to Norway and everywhere in between.read more
