Itinerary

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! On leaving Copenhagen you will be headed northwards on the Öresund, the strait between Zealand in Denmark and Schonen in Sweden. All the way to your first point of interest you will be accompanied with the Baltic Sea, the first stop being the famous beach Bellevue, where you can take a swim in the cool water. In your home for the night of Helsingør the main attraction is the Kronborg Castle and if you’re feeling particularly adventurous you could take the quick ferry to Helsingborg in Sweden!

Take a leisurely morning in Helsingør before heading off on your bike. On route to your stop for the night, be enchanted by seaside towns Hornbæk and Gilleleje (which will be your last view of the coast for a little while). As you head inland the landscape will begin to change; see nature reserves and small lakes, it must be said this route isn’t lacking in varying landscapes. Today’s destination is Hillerød, here you can visit Frederiksborg Castle or perhaps opt to have a relaxed evening drinking wine in the hotel.

Your trip inland was short-lived as today it’s time to head back to the coast. Some of the quaint seaside villages on the menu for today are Tisvildeleje and Liseleje, and of course copious beaches. Final stop for the day is Højby, this pretty little town is on the other side of Isefjord.

With today’s cycling on the Odsherred peninsula you will have the sea always in your sights, as well as white beaches, dunes, and the nautical salty air. Pass by Isefjord, Lammefjord and Holbækfjord, all characterised with the before-mentioned beachy landscapes. You will be spending the night in Holbæk, a port city dating back to around 1199. Here you can pay a visit to the Protestant-Lutheran Church of St. Nikolai.

As you head south along the Isefjord you will encounter flourishing meadows and quaint villages. The final part of this stretch will take you to the bay of Roskilde, where you can see a majestic cathedral. This cathedral is particularly worth a visit as it’s been the chosen eternal resting place of the Danish royal family since 1995 and therefore has UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Also worth visiting is the Viking Ship Museum.

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.
