Itinerary

Make sure to arrive early in Copenhagen to have time to explore the city, most attractions are awaiting you in walking distance from your hotel. From Nyhavn you can discover most sights by one of the numerous hop-on hop-off sightseeing boats from the water. For lunch you should go for one of those many great options - choose a typical Smørrebrød - Danish for butter (smørre) and bread (brød), which is available in many variations for a light lunch. In the afternoon there is time to visit one of the numerous museums and attractions. More information can be found on visitcopenhagen.com.

You start your trip down South to the small town of Køge, the Baltic Sea is your permanent companion. The brave one's take a bath in the sea during the tour and afterwards you can look forward to today's destination - an important, medieval merchant town during the late Middle Ages. The historical architecture is marvelous, the oldest dated half-timbered house of the nordic countries, built in 1527 can be found here. The port is also one of the oldest in Denmark, but has been renovated over the past years. 

Off to Næstved! Today you cycle through Zealand's green area to the West Coast. Take an excursion to the castle of Gavnø. There are over half a million bulbs, a rose garden, and many rare plants and trees on the castle grounds. You also may want to visit the theme park, "Bonbon Land" or the glass factory nearby. 

Today the Sea is accompanying you again when you cycle to the Northwestern part of Zealand. You will feel this special holiday vibe around you in fisher village Kaerebaeksminde. Here is where the Danes enjoy their holidays, so look forward to beautiful beaches and swimming areas, restaurants and cafes as far as the eye can see. In the museum you can learn more about the village and its fishing. Karrebækstorp, not far away is awaiting you with art galleries and alternate exhibitions. Before you continue your tour to Korsør you have to enoy some freshly smoked fish in one of the smokehouses - it is so delicious! 

West of Slagelse you can visit the Trelleborg, an excellent replica from the Viking times. It is one of seven Viking ring castles and the best preserved one. It is believed to have been ordered by Kind Harald Bluetooth in 980 AD and might have commanded the Great Belt and its sea traffic between the islands of Zealand and Funen. Today there is a museum where you can learn more about the fortress and its surrounding. Your goal of today is Sorø / Ringsted. In the Middle Ages this was more or less the capital of Zealand as the court was holden here. 

Look forward to the coasts and fjords of Roskilde today! First you will reach Iselfjord, then Roskildefjord. Form an opinion about which one is prettier while enjoying the breathtaking views. Roskilde's cathedral is very impressive and gravesite of many Danish kings and queens. Those who would like to soak in the Vikings spirit even more can row and sail across the fjord in a replica of an old Viking ship. 

Today's tour leads you through picturesque villages back to the wonderful capital city of Copenhagen. Spend the afternoon in a quaint café or visit the Tivoli Gardens. 

After breakfast your tour ends in Copenhagen. We are happy to extend your holidays with extra nights.

En utmärkt semester!
Själlands kust och dess rika jordbruksmark är otroligt vacker. Rutten har en bra blandning av kust- och skogsstigar likväl som lugna landsvägar. Cyklister har prioritet och är väl skyddade, det danska folket är mycket vänliga och hjälpsamma - särskilt mot cyklister. Vi hade en underbar semester och skulle definitivt rekommendera denna resa till våra vänner.
