Everybody has heard by now of Danish”hygge" (the art of cosiness), but how about "uhygge"? The festive season is very cosy in Denmark, but it’s also historically the time of chilling Christmas ghost stories. The Danes relish the chance to gather around the hearth in this very dark time of the year, to try to scare one another half to death with tales of mysterious and menacing apparitions and vengeful nisser (elves). Heather will take you by the (virtual) hand and lead you around the streets of Copenhagen at night for an “uhyggeligt” (scary) tour - telling tales of glowing pigs, hidden cemeteries, naughty elves, spectres, brutal hangings, witches and murderers. **Due to the content, we recommend viewer discretion is applied with regards to young children joining this tour.**
We call Heather a guide but she has so many skills it feels like a single label isn't enough. It’d be more accurate to call her a guide, storyteller, journalist, artist, historian and novelist. But then that would be a long title… Packing her personality and the colourful history of Denmark all into one live-stream can only mean a boatful of fun and entertainment. Join her as she shares her love of Copenhagen and her infectious humour with you!
Heather has been guiding since Jul 2012
Get ready for something special. We're travelling to Copenhagen with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and amazing guide.
The tour will last about 30 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Copenhagen. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.
Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.
Reserve your spot by selecting a time to book. Once done, you’ll be able to see your reservations on your Trips page and we’ll send you an email confirmation with a link to join the tour.

With Tivoli Gardens being closed because of the COVID lockdown, Heather created an alternate tour to take us on. She did a great job. She told us some of the spooky ghost stories of Copenhagen. An unusual tour for Christmas, but fun and memorable nonetheless. We’re looking forward to taking another trip with Heather today. She’s a lot of fun and shared great knowledge with the group.
