Once you arrive in the Danish capital you will see why it’s so popular with tourists. Walk through the medieval centre or pay a visit to the Tivoli gardens.
It’s time to start cycling! The first leg of your journey will be on an area called the Køge bay, which offers incredible views of the Baltic Sea. The first place of interest for you to visit is the Amager Fælled, a national park with lots of incredible scenery and no disturbance of traffic. If you are interested in art, another fantastic place to visit is the Arken Museum of Modern Art. Køge is one of the oldest cities in Denmark and sits right on the coast, offering beautiful white beaches and refreshing water to dip in.
On this day it’s time to head to the peninsula of Stevns, the route goes by the shoreline and the first place it will take you is Strøby Ladeplads, a popular holidaying spot. A bit further along the route begins to go away from the coast and will lead you to the city of Magleby and Gjorslev, until you reach the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stevns Klint. Gorgeous views can be enjoyed from the steep coast and old church of Højerup. Shortly after here you will get to Rødvig and the peaceful village of Fakse Ladeplads, which sits right by the sea. To get back to Køge you can take a train for an additional cost.
When you leave Køge you will start cycling along the coast to Kalstrup. From here, the route will once again take you inland on the Hedebostien Cycle Path, which having only recently been renovated directly connects Køge Bay and Roskilde Fjord. Along the route are incredible views very different from those of the coast. Your destination for the night of Roskilde has a fascinating historical past, you can enjoy this by strolling through the historical center or visiting the iconic cathedral, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
On day 5 there are three options for how you which route you want to take. The quickest goes via Lejre, a 43-hectar outdoor laboratory used for experimental archaeology, here we also recommend a trip to the castle Ledreborg. If you are wanting more of a challenge on this day a good option may be to go to Holbæk or north of the fjord to Frederikssund. The choice is yours and whichever one you do, you can enjoy the comfort of a train taking you back at the end.
On your last day of cycling, you will be heading back to your start point of Copenhagen. Once you get past Albertslund you can cycle on the C99 route, which leads you almost traffic free into the city centre. You will have enough time to do some more exploring in the Danish capital.
Your tour will end here unless you opt to add more days, which we would be happy to accommodate.
