I'm traveling in 3 months to Denmark with my family of 5. We are flying into Copenhagen for 3 days of sight seeing then thinking of relocating to Aarhus for 3 nights to see the remaining country, castles and Viking sites. We are ending our trip in Hirstals on our way to catch a ferry to Bergen, Norway. Because only ferry location that goes to Bergen seems to be Hirstals.
We were thinking to rent a car for traveling around to see the country but the fees are close to $1400.00 USD for 3 days. And there is no rental car drop in Hirstals. We've looked into Fredrikshavn for ferries to Bergen but there is none.
My questions would be,
1) How do you recommend a family (with children) to travel around Denmark sightseeing with out taking out a second mortgage. (mind you, the above quote is on a nice van)?
2) It seems weird there is no rental car drop in a port local. (Hirstals) Are we doing something odd by taking the ferry to Bergen from Hirstals?
This part of the trip is not falling into place as easily as other trips. Any advise? Somethings no clicking for us!
