On the third day, wend your way east to leafy, lakeside Silkeborg, go canoeing or take a cruise through the picturesque lakes of the area.

With kids in tow, a detour to the safari parks and sandy beaches of Djursland is a must – but there's lots for grown-ups here too, particularly in the gourmet hotspots at Femmøller outside Ebeltoft.
