is it possible to travel through a country without once paying for accommodation? yes.
We went directly north through Denmark, from NAME to Hirtshals. We skipped Copenhagen.
Warm days, but very windy.
We were worried that Denmark would be expensive for food, but ALDI and Lidl sorted us out. They had some peculiar items on offer, but the basic – pasta, veg, cheese, butter, eggs – were super cheap. Beer was also cheap in there too.
We bought water or asked in restaurants etc.
We bought and brewed our own ground coffee.

We didn’t pay for any kind of accommodation during our whole time there. We actually challenged ourselves not to. We didn’t shower the whole time we were in Denmark.
Wild camping is encouraged. There are even free camping spots dotted about the country. Some are just areas in forests that allowed tens, some come equipped with toilets, water taps, benches and shelters.
Denmark is excellent for cycling. We were pretty much on a cycle highway the whole way.
Super careful around cyclists. Cyclists have priority. We actually got beeped at several times because we’d give way to a car or lorry and that’s not allowed.
We booked a a ferry with a cabin from Hirtshals, Denmark to Bergen, Norway with COMPANY for £££. We’d considered just getting seats, but since there was two of us, it wasn’t much extra to get a cabin.
Our UK SIM-only plans worked perfectly for no extra charge (GiffGaff & Vodafone).
