Information

Danes in the Desert is a directory and resource for all things Danish in the Sonoran deserts and all of Arizona. In January 2013 two national Danish sports teams and a visit of Danish Ambassador Peter Taksoe-Jensen highlighted a series of events, exhibits and lectures all about Danes, leading to the creation of this website as a resource where you can find people, events and organizations linked together under the banner of Danes in the Desert.
