We had a fantastic time!
Our favorite experiences were when we spontaneously pulled off the trail and jumped in a lake or into the ocean. The app was critical to success (not sure why anyone would use the maps.). The hotel in Gothenburg was a great option for a family, since it included an excellent buffet both morning and evening. I really enjoyed the four-star in the beach town right before Copenhagen. I actually liked the Copenhagen hotel, very cool concept. It was really reassuring to have you so readily accessible via email and I appreciated having someone’s cell in case of emergency. Overall fantastic time. Thank you so much for all you did.

We had a wonderful trip!
The tour representative was very helpful getting us started. The hotels were very nice, and the luggage was always there when we arrived. The paper maps were helpful and the GPS routes worked perfectly. The train rides went smoothly. We were very lucky with the weather, with really only one rainy day (the last, in Denmark). We will gladly recommend Bike Sweden to our friends!
