Give the fly and flop a miss this summer and consider these more sustainable places to visit – and stay – by train, ferry or bus
With its beaches, creative restaurants, art galleries and Viking museums, Jutland has plenty to recommend it, plus, this summer, two new nature-themed parks. Naturkraft – “the world’s first sustainability theme park” – is due to open on 50 hectares of former seabed in West Jutland in July, with exhibitions, a forest garden, maze, ziplines and hands-on activities to encourage sustainable living. And Wow Park, a forest activity park near Billund, is set to open in May, with treehouses, hidden huts and giant walkways across a 28-acre forest. Near there in Horsens, the Jorgensens Hotel is a newly revamped 1700s palace with rough luxe rooms.
• Jorgensens’ family rooms sleeping four from £105 (jorgensens-hotel.dk). Hometogo.co.uk has cool wooden cabins all over Jutland from as little as £16 a night, sleeping four
