So what is hygge? Hygge is to the Danes what chic is to the French. Hygge (pronounced "hoo-gah") requires fat, sugar, alcohol, candles, and tons of friends! It's coming together over flickering candlelight with some frikadeller (meatballs) and cake. The concept of hygge is a huge part of traditional Danish food and lifestyle that Danes are known to be Europe's biggest consumers of candles. Even better, you can 'hygge' all year round too - minus the candles in summer. Your storytelling and gourmet guide, Heather, will lead you on a quest to find some locked-down hygge. It’s the perfect antidote to all the current woes of the world. That's not all. On Heather’s live-streamed virtual tour, you will also get to explore the best of Danish cuisine. You'll need something to savor as you wander through the cobbled streets of the city, over Denmark’s popular Kissing Bridge, and into the Instagrammable heart of Copenhagen – Nyhavn. This picturesque canal side, once home to Hans Christian Andersen, is still full of nautical charm, and an authentic hygge lifestyle. You’ll be surprised, amused, and probably very hungry by the end of the virtual tour, so get the coffee brewed and watch out for Heather's best Danish cake recipe.
Heather’s enthusiasm for living in Denmark infuses her historical, design, and sustainability tours of Copenhagen and the surrounding areas with vivid storytelling, fun and facts. Heather’s been a popular guide in Copenhagen for eight years, and has also written novels and exhibits her photography. At the moment, she’s focusing on how Copenhagen hopes to become one of the first carbon-neutral capital cities in the world in 2025, and has just added the -CO2penhagen tour to her WWWalks app. You’ll just love her groovy new experiences to which find out why Denmark is such a green and pleasant land!

A blah and disappointing tour. The Guide seemed to lose interest and run out of things to say after 20 minutes of the 30 minute tour and did finish early.

2nd tour of Copenhagen. Both times the weather wasn't great but way too much complaining about the weather. Tour cut short (25 minutes). Felt not a lot of prep was done for this tour.

Nice tour with Heather. I've been looking forward to it for a while. I really felt for her as the weather was dreadful. I think some voyagers need to appreciate in certain countries, particularly in places like Denmark, the weather can be very unpredictable and often rainy. Heather had a lovely, pleasant demeanour. I have a personal interest in Scandinavia and am very familiar with the culture of Scandinavia so I was happy to learn more about hygge. I think it would have been good to hear a bit more about the specifics of it, what modern day Danes think about it, how they practice it specifically, etc. Heather did tell us what it means and discussed food and drink but I didn't feel it was hygge focused and more just general about what Danes like to eat and drink. There was a fair bit of focus on buildings which I wasn't interested in, but I'm sure many others appreciated that. I would definitely join Heather again. Thanks Heather.
