Tour description

This tour is easy with short stages, relaxed and safe biking and a lot to see – very suitable for families.

Start and finish in Copenhagen, the Bike Capital of the World. Experiencing Copenhagen on your bike is something you will never forget. See the Royal Palace housing the Danish Queen, the Little Mermaid, the amusement park Tivoli and “Strøget,” one of the longest pedestrian streets in the world.

North of Copenhagen you will find castles, picturesque nature and one of the most exclusive residential areas in Denmark. You will bike along wonderful coastlines with sandy beaches, and charming marinas. A short roundtrip in Sweden is possible.

You will have time to visit some of the most important museums in Denmark: Museum of Modern Art - Louisiana, The Karen Blixen Museum and The Danish Maritime museum.

Note: If you have minimum 8 people in your party, you may request a start-day other than Sundays. If your overnight in Copenhagen is on a weekday, the tour price will be higher. If you book extra nights in Copenhagen on a weekday, the price will also be higher. Please contact us for prices.

Daily Program

Day 1: Copenhagen
Arrive at your hotel in Copenhagen and use the free time to explore The Bike Capital of the World with Nyhavn, the Royal Castle, Christiania, and Tivoli.
Overnight in Copenhagen

Day 2: Copenhagen – Hørsholm (18 miles/30 km)
Riding through Copenhagen on your bike is a fantastic start to your tour. You pass some of the famous sights such as the Little Mermaid and the famous beach “Bellevue.”

In Dyrehaven, the Royal hunting grounds, you will be riding on peaceful lanes surrounded by century old trees and curious deer. Located here is also “Bakken,” one of the oldest amusement parks, where is it possible to stop for a refreshment.

From here you follow Strandvejen along the coastline, before reaching Hørsholm on the coast of Øresund.
Overnight in Hørsholm

Day 3: Hørsholm – Helsingor (12 miles/20 km)
Today you will be cycling along the coastline all day passing two of the finest museums in Denmark. In Rungsted you can visit Rungstedlund, the home of the Danish author Karen Blixen (world famous for “Out of Africa”), and in Humlebæk you can visit the Museum of Modern Art “Louisiana,” famous not only for its exhibitions but also for its beautiful architecture and location.

You will end up in Helsingør, and after an easy day on the bike you might wish to spend the afternoon visiting the old borough with the impressive Kronborg Castle (the castle from Shakespeare’s play “Hamlet”).
Overnight in Helsingør area

Day 4: Round trip to Sweden and Helsingør (21 miles/35 km)
If you missed Kronborg yesterday you will have the chance today. The highlight of the day might be the Danish Maritime Museum listed among “52 places to go in 2014” by the New York Times. If you still have plenty of time, you can take the ferry to Helsingborg (runs every 15 minutes, €8 for a roundtrip, not included in tour cost). From here you can take a round trip of approximately 21 miles (35 km) along the coast to beaches and small fishing villages and back through the Swedish forests and fields.
Overnight in Helsingør area

Day 5: Helsingør – Hillerod (25-32 miles/41-51 km)
Today you can visit two of the most beautiful Danish castles. You start along the coast to Hornbæk, a small fishing village with tempting places for "time outs" and a swim. Afterward, you'll bike along one of the deepest lakes in Denmark towards Hillerød. If you want to visit The Queen’s summer residence, Fredensborg Castle, you can extend the tour with a ride of about 6 miles (10 km). Take a walk in the park, if the Queen is not there. It is a beautiful “fairy tale palace” from the 18th century with a unique interior. On your arrival at Hillerød, you go along the lake to Frederiksborg Castle with its perfect location at the lakeside.
Overnight near the historical center of Hillerød

Day 6: Hillerød – Copenhagen (10 miles/18 km + train*, or 24 miles/38 km)
Heading south towards Copenhagen you pass idyllic sceneries, lovely forests and wetlands with a rich birdlife. You will be impressed by the rich nature in a densely populated area close to the capital. You will be amazed how easy it is by bike to cycle from green northern Zealand to the capital of Denmark.

While the first 18 kilometers towards Farum are on winding paths and 3 smaller roads, the last 20 kilometers are along the new "supercykelsti" (super cycle path), that brings all the commuting cyclists to Copenhagen. When you come to Nørrebro, which is one of the most colorful neighborhoods in Copenhagen, you have to slow down and be aware of all the different cyclists heading towards the city center.
*Optional train ride, fare not included.
Overnight in Copenhagen

Day 7: Departure
Individual departure or the possibility to extend your stay with additional days in Copenhagen.
