Travelling Norway on a cruise allowed us to explore multiple cities along its coast, at any time possible – even midnight. Since the Hurtigruten also functions as a cargo operator ship, they make stops for varying amounts of time, so we made a point to alight for an explore whenever the stop lasts more than half an hour!
I know the sky still looks like it’s 7pm in Singapore, when it was in fact almost 1am. We were expecting the streets to be dead and quiet, but we were surprised to witness the Midnight Sun Marathon.
Any bustling city like Copenhagen has more than enough to offer its visitors, which is why I barely did any research for our itinerary before heading there. If you’re way more organised and need some inspiration for your trip, see what I accomplished with my 36 hours in Copenhagen!
Here is how we spent 36 hours in Copenhagen!
Type in “Copenhagen” into Google and you’ll find endless pictures of Nyhavn Harbour. It’s the most iconic sight in the city, and almost every postcard I saw there had that same design of the harbour on it.
If it’s your first time at Copenhagen, Nyhavn Harbour is a must-see!
When you think safari, Denmark certainly isn’t the first place that comes to mind. Little did I know, the Knuthenborg Safaripark is just a 1.5 hour drive away from Copenhagen – where we could get up-close with animals like zebras, donkeys, even camels (protected by our car windows of course hahaha).
LARGEST WILD ANIMAL PARK IN NORTHERN EUROPE
The largest wild animal park in Northern Europe, the Knuthenborg Safaripark is a wildlife drive-through, where you get to drive your car within the various zones, where you get to interact with the free-roaming animals!
