Situated on the strait of Öresund (the Sound), Helsingborg, Sweden, and Elsinore, Denmark are separated by a mere 2.5-mile stretch of water and a 20-minute ferry ride. Each represents the 10th largest towns in their respective countries.
The similarities and differences of the two towns make visiting each worthwhile. “Round the Sound” allows visitors, particularly those on pre- and post-cruises from Copenhagen, to visit both countries in one day.
Excursions include the Castle Tour of North Zealand; and North Zealand’s Royal Parks and Public Gardens; and on the Swedish side: scenic tour of Northwest Skåne and the Kulla peninsula; Castles in Skåne; and Seal & Speedboat safari on Kattegat.
