Find more hygge holiday ideas.

The Danes are masters at elevating everyday comforts, from slowly savouring a cinnamon bun fresh from the oven to taking a long walk with a friend at twilight. It's this attitude, of making otherwise mundane moments a cosy and relaxing joy that has vaulted Denmark to the status of 'world's happiest country'. There is even a Danish word for the practice - hygge, or the habit of enjoying the good things in life, no matter how small.


In the newly-released Little Book of Hygge, the head of Denmark's Happiness Research Institute shows how everyone can bring a little hygge into their lives. Lighting candles in the evening, enjoying a relaxed supper with family, or just appreciating the quality of the light when you wake up... little changes and attitude shifts can bring us all a step closer to Danish good living. (And we should know – we've been planning holidays to Denmark for years!)


We've partnered with Visit Denmark to give away a trip for two to Copenhagen. Stay in the heart of the city at the stylish and relaxing boutique Hotel Kong Arthur, and explore your surroundings with a 72-hour Copenhagen Card - you'll gain access to museums, attractions and more, as well as free public transit.
