Beyond Adventure Denmark Gourmet Special - is compact, but no lack of excitement. Denmark is calling you to discover the best food and amazing insight to this happy place and despite Denmark is “famous” for its non-existing automotive industry we will have a few surprises waiting for you.
EXCELLENCE PAIRED WITH PASSION, ADVENTURE AND PRECISION
Beyond Adventure is all about exploring the world on passionate and unique driving adventures. Getting from A to B shall become your experience not just transport. We offer you to explore “bucket-list” destinations. All behind the steering wheel of the best suitable vehicle for the challenges.
We dare to motivate you to go where no-one normally goes and we want to exceed your expectations with our one-of-its-kind concepts. We redefine automotive adventures and target via a distinctive teamwork to also extend your network and to create friendships.
When joining a Beyond Adventure you will become part of a passionate team and will immediately feel our uniqueness in how we do things. Jan Kalmar Beyond Adventure was established by Jan Kalmar – an adventurer, petrol head and extreme driver who is constantly exploring the planet on four wheels. This life-long passion has led to an extensive network. Jan has bent the limits for automotive challenges for over 20 years and even set World Records in the process.
For us the experience must be distinctive – we supply the best service wherever we go but never lose the flexibility and individual approach. The Denmark Gourmet Special has very limited driving and many activities, therefore we offer joint driving and the entire group stays together. This means you drive your own car, but you will be carefully guided and supported from our local experts. So, you have the opportunity to enjoy all the impressions to the fullest and the support team is always close by.
The passion for adventures is deep within our vastly experienced event team. We always aim for the best possible comfort and always ensure you are never alone. In case of an emergency, break down or a simple puncture, there is a solution assisted by the Beyond Adventure team.
All cars have 2-way radios so you will get answers right away on all questions that might occur. A Beyond Adventure paramedic is present to ensure premedical assistance in an unlikely emergency. Same goes for vehicle issues if needed a specially trained technician is on site. For all Beyond Adventures, the team always includes a local guide to explain about the area and inform about local habits and traditions, simply to widen your horizon – as Hans Christian Andersen said: “to travel is to live.” Behind the scenes, a team of travel experts is on alert from start to finish following your progress via GPS tracking for your safety and comfort – always ready to support.
The experience starts already when signing in, from that moment you can always rely on our support. Our adventure starts at the arrival airport. From here all is taken care of all the way to the departure airport. Get ready to explore the world you
Let the adventure begin,...
Jan Kalmar, founder
Arrive to Copenhagen International Airport with direct connections from Singapore, Beijing, Hong Kong, Doha, Bangkok, Tokyo, Shanghai, Dubai, and most major European airports. You will be welcomed by the Beyond Adventure team in the airport. A short shuttle to the hotel D’angleterre Copenhagen in the city center of Copenhagen awaits you. After time to relax after your journey it is time to discover Copenhagen and as it is a micro metropol this will be done by foot and includes a visit to the second oldest amusement park in the world - “Tivoli”.
Described as the most romantic place in town. Judge yourself... Leaving Tivoli, we take a boat to see Copenhagen from the sea side - and exlore the contrasts of Copenhagen as we walk through the Freetown “Christania”. Soon we arrive to the best restaurant in the world 2021 – the famous Noma. Why not start with the best, and who knows, this gourmet adventure might give you a different rating. A unique dinner deserves a unique shuttle back to the hotel which allows you to discover Copenhagen by night.
Enjoy the remaining evening in downtown if you have energy left. The Driving Adventure starts tomorrow, but not until after lunch.
Today we hope that Copenhagen still has the power to surprise - but we are quite sure. Time to get into the cars but first we start with a briefing about the cars and program. This will take place at a combined ski-hill, power plant and architectural masterpiece Copenhill.
But we can’t leave Copenhagen without giving the famous Danish Smörrebröd (open sandwiches) a try and this will be done in 90 m height on top of the ski-hill. Now you will finally get behind the steering wheel of your classic Porsche 911 or modified Porsche Cayenne as we set off south.
Soon you will explore the real Denmark with its wide open space and lots of agricultural land carved by the last ice-age. You will be amazed by all the small roads as we do all we can to avoid highways. We will pass by lots of spectacular nature, which only few expect from Denmark. As there are no mountains in Denmark you only need a tower to see far and we will use this opportunity today.
At the end of the day we reach a small seaside retreat that used to be the former Danish King’s summer residence. A Michelin star dinner is on the menu tonight, and yes so are the “white summer nights” of Scandinavia.
Total KM: 150
Today we will leave the Island Sjælland behind and head to the Island Fyn where stress and busyness does not occur. After driving on small idyllic country roads we will suddenly turn onto one of the largest bridges in the world which is also marking
the highest point of Denmark. Prepare for some amazing views, and as soon as we hit Fyn, we are back to very small roads again. South Fyn is also considered by the Danes the fairytale island - most likely as its the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen, one of the greatest writers of all times.
You will experience where he got his inspiration from to most of his famous fairytales and of course we will visit the home of the father of “The Little Mermaid”, “The Ugly Duckling” and “The Snow Queen” - just to mention only a few of his many great fairytales. Before the visit to Odense, we want to put you all in the right fairytale mode by visiting the very special castle Egeskov, where you will have time to relax and enjoy some of the offers there. After so many impressions we end the driving day
at a new golf resort where your heart rate can get under control again, and possibly you will find time and engery for a round of golf as the nights are long at this time of year.
Total KM: 215
Back in the cars, we follow the north coast of Fyn heading to the Peninsula of Jylland (Jutland). Just before we leave Fyn behind, we will visit a world class automotive gourmet location. Just like we choose the best restaurants in the world we have been invited to see one of the most amazing car collections in the world a true vault. What a morning. Back on the road we start heading north towards Aarhus.
Amongst Danes this 2nd largest city in Denmark is called “the capital of smiles.” On the way we will again show the contrast of Denmark. Super modern architecture and food, as well as visiting the actual birthplace of Denmark known as the Jellinge Rocks. Following the beautiful coastline where speed is secondary as you need to take in the views at your own pace. The evening will be enjoyed at a relaxed brasserie and the night spend in a small romantic city hotel.
Here the evening is yours to explore the “smallest 2nd largest city in the world”.
Total KM: 273
After breakfast we take a walk around the “city center” before we drive to the fast Catamaran ferry that will take us back to Sjælland. We keep avoiding highways and will make a short light lunch stop in Roskilde, the former capital of Denmark and home to the Vikings. Look forward to see how ships were produced and visit the old town of Roskilde before heading back to our “home” in Copenhagen the Hotel D’Angleterre. Get settled and be prepared for one very unique gourmet experience... The Alchemist is waiting.
We will enter the universe 4 at a time and then be ready to get served up to 60 courses in a world full of tastes and experiences over the normal. After this unforgettable dinner we will make sure you get safely back to the hotel. You most likely can’t take in more impressions, but again the evening is yours to enjoy
and we have a later start tomorrow.
Total KM: 215
“Timing is everything” - today is a special day in Denmark. We celebrate like most others in Scandinavia the longest day of the year, and we invite you to this celebration. You have some hours on your own this morning, but don’t take too much breakfast as the next 3-star Michelin experience awaits you.
Lunch at the famous Geranium. Yes Copenhagen sits with the 2 best restaurants in the world currently, and as we already visited number 1, and last night’s Alchemist is just waiting to be rated, we now enjoy another lunch out of the ordinary. After our 3-hour culinary adventure we head north via the coastal road passing by picturesque places ad libitum heading far north to Kronborg Castle – home of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. From here it is only a small final drive to the Beach Hotel Helenekilde where a relaxed garden farewell dinner is the perfect way to feel the Danish “hygge” before we walk down to the beach where thousands of fires on the beaches mark this longest day of the year – come join our Saint Hans Evening!
Total KM: 93
Today it is time to say “ see you next time”. After breakfast, there are several optional alternatives. You can choose to stay an extra night at this wonderful cozy hotel, or you can take the car and drive towards Copenhagen on your own visiting Louisiana
and Ordrupgaard museums. We can assist you to book a Copenhagen hotel too.
Or simply drive back to Copenhagen Airport and we will take care of your car from there. It is time to head back home having seen a Denmark that hopefully and most likely exceeded every dream you had about this little and happy Kingdom in the Baltic Sea...
