SAS, the largest airline in Scandinavia, is introducing new daily nonstop service between Boston and Copenhagen. This route begins March 2016, but tickets are available now.
This is the first direct route offered between Boston and Scandinavia. Flights will leave from Boston at 5:30 p.m. and land in Copenhagen the next day at 7:00 a.m. Return flights will depart at 12:50 p.m., landing in Beantown at 3:20 in the afternoon.

Copenhagen: Worth the Trip and Then Some
Whether you’re flying into Copenhagen for business or pleasure, you’ll enjoy this fun city. You can eat at some of the world’s best restaurants, take in some amazing architectural wonders and explore a castle or two. Just rent a bike and pedal your way around this amazingly bike-friendly city.
Tivoli Gardens, an amusement park in the center of the city, has one of the oldest wooden roller coasters in the world, as well as other scream worthy rides, including the Golden Tower and the Monsoon. If you’re traveling with your family, there are plenty of kiddie rides and an aquarium.
When you need a break from the excitement, consider the Design Museum that features all things modern. Or check out the Danish Royal Library, which is housed in the striking Black Diamond building.
A Gastronomic Dream and More
The wildly popular restaurant Noma, which serves New Nordic cuisine, is a must for any foodie. Getting a dinner reservation can be tough, so you might want to try a lunch seating instead.
Fiskebaren, another excellent restaurant, is also a great choice if you’re into seafood, and it’s easier to get in. Carnivores should consider the Rex Republic, since it has a reputation for cooking up the best steaks in town. Make sure you order the potato wedges, too.
Then there’s the Den Økologiske Pølsemand, which translates as the organic hot dog man. This is not your traditional hot dog. They dish up grilled pork and beef sausages on linseed and slow-fermented sourdough buns, and it’s usually served with chocolate milk.
There are so many dessert options, it’s hard to know where to start. But Strangas Cakeaway, Le Glace and Summerbird Chocolaterie are great for satisfying your sweet tooth.
If shopping is your thing, check out the Stroget. It’s one of the longest shopping streets in all of Europe. But if you’re looking for local produce or a bite from a food stall, then the Torvehallerne market would be a better fit.
