MEET THE DANES – in the footsteps of Hans Christian Andersen

The Danish Inner Wheel districts 44, 45 and 46 want to show you the best of Denmark outside Copenhagen, and offer 3 tours, 1 pre and 2 post Convention.

In a country with only 5.5 million inhabitants our capital of 1 million people will invariably dominate the picture of Denmark. When you look at a map you may also notice that Copenhagen is not situated in the center of the country; on the contrary! Therefore it sometimes takes a bit of an effort to persuade visitors to leave Copenhagen to experience the rest of the country.

But this is exactly what a group of Inner Wheelers from the districts 44, 45 and 46 intend to do. If you haven´t seen the country outside Copenhagen you haven´t been to Denmark!

Furthermore, we think that meeting the local population always adds a lot to a journey. The Danish Inner Wheelers all speak English and will enjoy discussing Inner Wheel,  the Danish society, our way of life, educational and social system, etc. and will also be keen to get to know how YOU think, live and act in your home country.

The 2 tours running pre – and post Convention will be almost identical but are not traditional tourist tours: Both will be led by 2 English speaking Inner Wheelers who will be ready to answer – or find an answer – to all your questions; who both know their country and its history very well and are looking forward to tell you about the Vikings and show you one of the places where they lived, tell about Hans Christian Andersen`s fairy tales and his journeys, the modern Danish society, the geology of the landscape we drive through and many other things that you may not know you want to know! And the Inner Wheelers you meet will proudly tell you about the advantages of their part of the country.


In all the places where we spend the night, Danish Inner Wheelers will come to meet you, entertain you or just share a meal with you, sharing their experience with and expectations of Inner Wheel.

You will see a 15 year old bridge which was the world´s longest when it was built, the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen in the cozy old part of Odense, stay in century old manor houses turned into modern hotels, visit the oldest city of Denmark, once having a mighty harbour now a peaceful and picturesque town with a cathedral. You`ll experience the dunes and roughness of the western coast, the wonderful ambient light of the northern most tip of Denmark that inspired painters a century ago, and the idyll of the lakes in central Jutland.

In short you´ll get a much better idea of what Denmark and the Danes are by joining one of our tours.

Please book and pay before 01 March 2015.

We really look forward to welcoming you on board the bus.



TOUR C - Faroe Islands 10 - 14 May 2015
 
Unforgettable Faroe Islands – an unknown and unspoilt destination.
Take a trip back in time, but also into a modern society. The Faroe Islands are a self-governing country within the Danish Kingdom. Only 2 hours’ flight from Copenhagen to a place with its own way of life.
 
The Faroe Islands is a small society consisting of 18 small islands with barely 50,000 inhabitants. Thanks to a rather isolated position in the North Atlantic Ocean, the islanders have managed to preserve their old language and culture. Still it is a modern society with nearly all the facilities and way of life found in the other Nordic Countries. For more information: www.visitfaroeislands.com and www.visittorshavn.fo  
 
Authentic and unspoiled – and likely to remain so. That is how the National Geographic Magazine described the islands when they were chosen as the world’s best island destination a couple of years ago. Two of the Danish Inner Wheel Clubs are found in the Faroe Islands, and we should like to welcome you to our very special universe. We would like to invite you to come and see for yourself if this is still true. We think it is.
 
The Faroe Islands are part of the Danish realm and only two hours’ flight from Copenhagen. From the airport there is a one-hour drive to the capital Tórshavn.
 

YOU CAN CHOOSE BETWEEN TOURS A, B OR C:
Tour A is pre Convention (30th April to 5th May)
Tour B is post Convention (10th to 15th May) but the 2 tours are identical, and both let you follow in the footsteps of Hans Christian Andersen.
Tour C from 10th to 14th May goes to the Faroe Islands.

All tours are planned under the theme ”Meet the Danes” and will take you to cultural, historical and scenic highlights of western Denmark and the Faroe Islands respectively and give you a unique chance to meet Danish Inner Wheel members. Choosing tour A or B you will experience wonderful manor house hotels, where your hotel stay will also be an adventurous part of the trip.

Tour C offers you a 4 star hotel in Torshavn as a basis for daily excursions.
