Overnight stay in the centre of Copenhagen.

Day 2

Copenhagen – The Hørsholm area. 30 km/18 US miles.

Cycling through Copenhagen on your bike is a fantastic tour start. You will 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 cycling on peaceful paths surrounded by century old trees and curious deer. You can make a refreshment stop at “Bakken” , the oldest amusement park in the world, before reaching your hotel in the Vedbæk area on the coast of Øresund.

Overnight stay in Hørsholm area.

Day 3

Hørsholm area – Helsingør. Approx. 20 km/12 US miles.

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 as well for its beautiful architecture and location. You will end up in Snekkersten, a former fishing village. Snekkersten is only 2 km from the centre of Helsingør, so 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 stay in Helsingør area.

Day 4

Roundtrip in Sweden and Helsingør. 35 km/21 US miles.

If you missed Kronborg yesterday you will have the chance today. The highlights of the day might be the Danish Maritime Museum listed among “52 places to go in 2014” by New York Times. If you still have plenty of time, you can take the ferry (runs every 15 minutes, price 8 Euro for a roundtrip) to Helsingborg. From here you can take a round trip of approx. 35 kilometres along the coast to beaches and small fishing villages and back through the Swedish forests and fields.

Overnight stay in Helsingør.

Day 5

Helsingør – Hillerød. 41-51 km/25-32 US miles.

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 sea bath. Thereafter you 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 approx. 10 km/6 US miles. 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 to Hillerød, you go along the lake to Frederiksborg Castle with its perfect location at the lakeside.

Overnight stay near the historical centre in Hillerød.

Day 6

Hillerød – Copenhagen. 38 km/24 US miles or 18 km/10 US miles + train.

Heading South towards Copenhagen you pass idyllic sceneries, lovely forests and wetlands with a rich birdlife. 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 the green northern Zealand to the capital of Denmark. While the first 18 kilometres towards Farum are on winding paths and smaller roads, the last 20 kilometres 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 colourful neighbourhoods in Copenhagen, you have to slow down and be aware of all the different cyclists heading towards the city centre.

Overnight stay in the centre of Copenhagen.

Day 7

Check out or use the possibility to extend your stay with a few additional days in Copenhagen. You can choose extra nights at your hotel or you can join one of our other bike tours.
