Best Time to Travel to Denmark

Although Denmark is part of Scandinavia, it is not exposed to freezing temperatures. Temperatures fall below zero in January and February – thanks to hot water flows –  but they are never intolerable. Although the country’s winters are not as hard as the rest of Scandinavia, it is not suitable for visiting the country between November and March.

During this time you can find only snow, cold winds and closed tourism offices in Denmark. For this reason, the best time to visit the country is between April and November, when the weather is temperate.

July and August are the most touristic periods and can also be a difficult season to find accommodation. The average temperature in these months is 17 degrees.

The Danish climate is rainy throughout the year so you should prepare yourself for it. Particularly in the summer months, half of a month is rainy. The hottest period is experienced in July. This is the period when the average temperature is between 20 and 26 degrees.

Another ideal period to visit the country is September. This time period, especially preferred by surfers, is the most intense way of organizing cycling tours in nature.

The autonomous government of Denmark, Faroe Islands, has a temperate climate. In the region under the influence of the Gulf Stream flows, winters are warmer than in Denmark; but the sky is more cloudy and windy than Denmark. Summers are cooler than Denmark.
