Happily Succumbing to Hygge in Skagen

The phenomenon known as hygge is considered the spiritual foundation of Denmark. How hygge is defined is personal and hard to pin down. Join BCD in a quest to understand the meaning of hygge through a visit to Skagen, a former artist’s colony at the northernmost tip of Denmark. Skagen is home to the Rabjerg Mile, an expanse of sand dunes 12 stories high, and a 1.5-mile headland called the Grenan that is the dividing line between the Baltic and North Seas. Meet some locals who share their concepts of hygge!
