Useful links in
By far, the most active Danish forum for
travellers. A very attractive meeting place for people with plane
tickets in the spine and hiking boots in the blood. Through the club,
members are diverted with lots of interesting slide shows, even more
discussions and tips and, of course, "Globen", the best club magazine in
Denmark. Contact to the club can be arranged
through their web-site or through me.
|Café Globen||A brand new Copenhagen café, run by a number of members
of The Travellers Guild. Not surprising, this café will focus on travel life, and at
least once a week slide shows are given by club members, however, as some
travel agencies use the café as well, there is a risk of scheduled slide
shows several days of the week. Other arrangements may include
music and food, however, to be safe check the calender of the café.
|Visa Rules||Information regarding
the visa requirements for Danish citizens going anywhere, Essential for
planning, however, for travelling in politically sensitive countries or
regions, all information should be double-checked.
|Embassy List||The Copengahen
Diplomatic List. The list of all embassies and consulates in Copenhagen,
and, if necessary, the nearest other embassy in the neighbouring countries.
Very useful for collecting visa.
|Fish-Base||Filippine non-profit data base containing an
amazing array of (almost) all the fish species in the whole world. Very informative, even
though you're not the slightest involved in fishing yourself, or just
identification of scaly creatures. To enjoy some of my own
shots, check their photographic hit list
showing some of the most beautiful fish photos in the world.
|Dansk Bjergklub||"Danish Mountaineers
Association". Club for energetic people with a soft spot for challenging the
laws of gravity.
|Virtual Tourist||Web-site serving as a meeting place for travellers
anywhere. In addition, you can build your own web-site and pass on information to others,
and of course search the other pages for useful information. Great for getting friends
|Geoff Anderson||All-weather clothing
company making products designed in Denmark. Geoff A. is a very competitive alternative to the
better known fashion brands, however,
while North Face jackets are made for people who definitely wants to be seen, the Geoff
Anderson stuff is made for people who prefer to stay invisible while being
in the nature.
|Wasteels Travel||Belgian owned travel agency, specialized in
tickets for the young and beautiful - preferably within Europe and USA. Got some of the
cheapest deals within Europe, combined with excellent service. Not a bad combination!
|Adventurers Club||A legendary guild, originally founded in 1938 by
polar explorer Peter Freuchen. Hard (impossible!) to get close to, unless you know
"someone". Not very informative, but very inspiring.
|Fisk & Fri||The leading Danish angling magazine, sometimes
suffering badly from my own writings from all over the world. On the domestic side, the
magazine has specialized into sea-trout and (sigh) put & take rainbow trout.
|Fiskejournalen||Swedish angling magazine, a bit like Fisk &
Fri, but less focused on trout and much more on zander, pike and other
not-so-noble fish species.
|Turen Går Til||The web edition of the
popular "Turen Går Til" books from Politiken. In my opinion, the web site is
"wider" and better suited for the backpacker than the printed books, perhaps
because even I once in a while supply a couple of their articles!
|Danish adventure magazine, containing articles
from any possible corner of the world - preferably including a lot of action sports.
Originally started off as "Adventure World" and later changed its name to
"Opdag Verden" (= "Discover the World"), however, they have maintained the
same staff and visual appearance.
|American run organisation with the sole aim of
providing information on the famed and exciting peacock bass (pavón, tucunare) of South
America. Run by Larry Larsen, a very friendly, second-generation Danish-American based in
www.kenrockwell.com. Excellent and very
inspiring photo site made by a professional photographer. Best if you are a
Canon or Nikon freak.
|Web-site for people who just doesn't know how to
quit carp fishing. Contains an amazingly large data base of previously secret lakes and
ponds as well as lots of photos from a recently discovered passion: Orchids!
|Photographic site very likely to contain the
biggest Danish data base of fish photos, many of these taken underwater. Good for species
determination as well.
|Rasmus Krath||Danish adventurer and
traveller from Aarhus, Jutland, and one of the very few professional slide
show artists in the country - perhaps because he's very good at it.
|Farum Angling Club||Very active angling club north of Copenhagen.
Affiliated to Fiskeringen 1970, giving it's members access to a large number of lakes,
rivers and boats, all over Denmark.
|NS 48||The best and most active sports fishing club at
South Sealand, and my former homeground. As Farum, affiliated to Fiskeringen
|Club based in the center of Jutland,
possessing some great opportunities (if you are into zander, pike and bream)
and arranging plenty of activities of which many are open to non-members.
