More info about Water Sports in Denmark:

Denmark is a Scandinavian country that is mostly made up of the Jutland peninsula and a large number of islands, the main which are Jutland, Zealand, and Funen. Therefore, aquatic activities are at the core of this Nordic country’s identity. This is despite the cold winter weather, which is the perfect Danish excuse for “winter bathing”, a sport that consists of running into the sea in, you guessed it, winter- without a neoprene suit!
