Show & Tell with Luvaville on the Danish North Sea

Jul 29, 2012

Today’s feature is from a Danish mother and entrepreneur, Anne Duramois, who is behind the well-sourced website Luvaville.com. That’s where busy parents can search for tons of practical information when taking city trips around the world. Luvaville recently invited me on their blog to talk about my London (read here). My turn to welcome Anne, who shares her best ideas on travelling by the North Sea in Denmark. There’s no better time to do that than in the summer as you can imagine…So, here’s some last minute inspiration if you have not made summer plans yet. Tak, Anne!  Ps: Read here for BozAround city guide on “Live the Hygge in Copenhagen
 
MEET THE LUVAVILLE FAMILY

Hej med jer! My name is Anne Duramois. I’m half Danish, half French currently living in Copenhagen together with my French husband Laurent and our two daughters Liv 3 years old and Stella 16 months old. Copenhagen is a wonderful city, with plenty of green and blue open spaces for families to enjoy! Mostly what we love about living here, after living in Paris for a few years, the culture and time balance for managing family and work life is really good! The trip I will share with you is to my home region, the north of Denmark with the stormy North sea, which has some of the best beaches in the world. I’m the co-founder of the international travel guide and lifestyle blog for families Luvaville.com, When you have children, city breaks can be a bit of a challenge but withLuvaville.com, you will know all the good, stylish cafés and restaurants with child-friendly facilities or public places for nursing your baby.
 
ITINERARY in NORTH DENMARK
The lighthouse at Skagen Denmark
 
VISIT
Your trip will centre around the town of  Skagen at the very top of Denmark, take the little train “Sandormen” to the very end and stick one feet in each ocean: the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. Walk around the beautiful center of Skagen and enjoy the typical  pastel yellow colored small houses.

Taste a delicious fish lunch on the harbour. Go for a small drive to Råbjerg Mile, a migrating coastal dune between Skagen and FrederikshavnDenmark. It is the largest moving dune in Northern Europe with an area of around 1 km² (0.4 mi²) and a height of 40 m (130 ft). The dune contains a total of 4 million m³ of sand. And is the perfect playground for the whole family to jump around in.
LøkkenBeach, Denmark
 
PLAY
Well, the beach is a must: Løkken, Tversted, Blokhus beaches are really great. I also have to mention an excellent amusement park called Fårup Sommerland. It’s situated in a big forrest and have some really cool attractions and rides for children and adults. The whole family will enjoy it for sure. As a child, we would go there at least 3 times a year, now I bring my own family once a year. Bring your own meat and salads and use the barbecue facilties for a relaxing family barbecue.

EAT 
Barbecue on the beach or on the terrace. Danes love barbecues, and everytime the weather allows it, we would bring the portable BBQ with us.

In Løkken, a small cozy beach village which is very lively during summer time and you will find plenty of relaxed restaurants where children are welcome as well.
In Blokhus, Restaurant Futten, Høkervej 2 9492 Blokhus.  A lovely restaurant situated in a very old  and charming farm house. Try the typical Danish brunch buffet.
 
SLEEP
Stay at the traditional Ruth’s Hotel in Skagen or you can, like we always do, rent a luxury cottage at the amazing camping site Jambo Feriepark. For us, it’s the perfect mix of social camping life and private luxury. The kids love the atmosphere, they meet plenty of friends and enjoy the enormous playground, swimming pool and many activities organised for children and families. And we get to have comfy beds, modern facilities, our own kitchen, indoor and outdoor space and WIFI!

SHOP
Well, Danish fashion and children’s brands are pioneers in many ways and very cool, so I would bring some cool clothing for the children with me home. You can find cool and colorful prints with brands such as Molo and Katvig. Milibe makes the best and cutest stribed T-shirts, underwear and dresses and brands such as Poppy RoseSoft Gallery and Mini A Ture, lovely and poetic shirts and trousers. For the home, Danish Design is also some of the best in the world – useful and practical items can be found at Normann Copenhagen or Hay…..and still reasonable in size for the suitcase and prices.
 
SOME TIPS
Fly to Ålborg from Copenhagen (30 mins). You can easily find cheap tickets on www.sas.dk or www.norwegian.dk or you can take the train www.dsb.dk. Rent a car at the airport and cruise up north.
