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.
Today’s cycling will take you inland away from the coast and towards Southern Zealand. The landscape will change from beautiful white coastline to luscious meadows and green forests. Your destination for the night is Næstved, this medieval town has an old town and is perfect to take a walk or even pay a visit to the Rococo castle of Ganvø.
The next direction is west as you head for the Great Belt, the first stop being seaside town Karrebæksmind. Not far from here is a beautiful sandy beach near Enø, an ideal spot to take some sun or a dip. From here the route will partially be by the sea, passing by harbour town Skælskør. From here you will reach today’s destination of Korsør, another quaint harbour town with an exciting and cultural atmosphere.
On today’s route we recommend making a stop in Trelleborg, here you will find a large ring fort which was built around 900 BC, as well as a contemporary museum about the life and culture of the Viking age. Your day’s cycling will come to an end in Sorø; here there is a monastery that dates to the 12th century and is based on the Cistercian abbey of Fontenay.
As you cycle 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 the majestic cathedral. This cathedral is particularly worth a visit as it’s been the Danish royal family’s chosen grave church 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 for your starting point of Copenhagen. Once you get past Albertslund you can cycle on the C99, which leads you almost traffic free into the city centre. You will have enough time to do some exploring in the Danish capital.
Your tour will end here unless you opt to add more days, which we would be happy to accommodate.
