In the evening, the group can have free time to familiarise themselves with the local area. 

Day 2 - Sustainability tour, Copenhill & Tivoli Gardens

Continental breakfast served at the hotel. 

The group will be collected from their accommodation by coach, and they will have a sustainability-focussed guided tour of Copenhagen by coach.

Included in their coach tour is entrance and a guided tour of Copenhill - the artificial ski slope and recreational hiking area, built on top of a new waste management centre. 

After their coach tour, the group will get to stretch their legs on a guided walking tour, in a developing region of the city, where they will learn more about social and urban sustainability.

To end the day, they will get to visit the second oldest amusement park in the world - Tivoli Gardens. Despite the multitude of exciting rides for the visitors, Tivoli is still a green and relaxing venue, committed to acting responsibly, respecting Tivoli’s visitors, employees and environment.
