Day 1: Copenhagen
Arrival in Copenhagen. The Danish capital has a lot to offer. An early arrival is highly recommended (we can help you book extra nights before your tour starts). Arrive at your hotel and use the free time to explore The Bike Capital of the World. Take a stroll through the medieval city center or visit the famous Tivoli amusement park. Visit Nyhavn, the Royal Castle, or Christiania. In the evening you will have a personal welcome briefing and receive your rental bikes.
Overnight in Copenhagen.
Day 2: Copenhagen – Helsingør (32 miles/50 km)
Biking through Copenhagen is a fantastic tour start. You leave Copenhagen heading north. Today's stage will take you along the Öresund, the strait between Zealand in Denmark and Schonen in Sweden. Always with a view of Baltic Sea, you will quickly reach the famous beach Bellevue. Enjoy a swim here, if you wish!
In your destination, Helsingør, Kronborg Castle is worth a visit, or take the ferry for a quick trip to Helsingborg on the Swedish side.
Day 3: Helsingør – Helsinge/Hillerød (28 or 37 miles/45 or 60km)
Take some time to visit the old port city of Helsingør before continuing your bike ride. The coastal resorts of Hornbæk and Gilleleje will charm you and invite you to linger.
After this, your route leads away from the coast. You will pass extensive nature reserves and small lakes. The contrasts in environment and landscape on this part of the ride will impress you.
Once you reach your destination for the night, Helsinge/Hillerød area, visit Frederiksborg Castle--or just treat yourself with a good glass of wine in the hotel. Either is a great way to spend the rest of the day!
Overnight in Helsinge/Hillerød area.
Day 4: Helsinge/Hillerød – Hundested/Højby (37 or 28 miles/60 or 45 km)
Today you can make a choice between 2 options.
One route takes you back to the coast. The small idyllic villages of Tisvildeleje and Liseleje exude their charm, and you'll enjoy numerous beaches.
Another route takes you inland via the city of Frederiksværk to your today's destination, Hundested or Højby. (Højby is located on the opposite side of the Isefjord, and in case you are booked overnight here, the ferry ticket to Rørvig is included for you.)
Overnight in Hundested/Højby.
Day 5: Hundested/Højby – Holbæk (37 or 25 miles/60 or 40km)
On the Odsherred peninsula, you will always be near the sea, the dunes, and the beautiful salty sea air. You will find the most beautiful sandy beaches there. Nevertheless, today's bike tour has more to offer: breathtaking views all along the coast of Isefjord, Lammefjord, and Holbækfjord.
The destination for today is the port city of Holbæk, which was first mentioned in historical documents in 1199. Here we recommend you visit the Protestant-Lutheran Church of St. Nikolai.
Overnight in Holbæk.
Day 6: Holbæk – Roskilde (31 miles/50 km)
Today you start south along the Isefjord. You will discover green meadows and small charming villages. The final part of the route leads along the bay of Roskilde. The Cathedral of Roskilde welcomes you from afar. Since the beginning of the 15th century, the cathedral was the favorite grave church of the Danish royal family, and since 1995, it is also part of UNESCO World Heritage. We also recommend a visit to the Viking Ship Museum.
Overnight in Roskilde.
Day 7: Roskilde – Copenhagen(22 miles/35km)
The last stage leads you back to the starting point of your bike tour: the Danish capital Copenhagen. From Albertslund, you'll follow a newly built bike path to the center of the city almost free of traffic!
In the afternoon you'll have enough time to explore the city on your own. You can fulfill all the wonderful impressions that you have already gained on your bike tour through North Zealand.
Overnight in Copenhagen
Day 8: Departure from Copenhagen
After breakfast, your journey ends. We are happy to book an extended stay for you to explore the Danish capital further.
