The Danish capital has a lot to offer. An early arrival is highly recommended. Take a stroll through the medieval city center or visit the famous Tivoli. In the evening you will receive your rental bikes as well as a personal welcome briefing.
The first cycle stage will lead along the so-called Køge bay, with outstanding views to the Baltic Sea. The national park Amager Fælled is absolutely free of traffic and its scenic landscape will impress you. For those who are interested in art we recommend to visit Arken Museum of Modern Art. Køge belongs to one of the oldest cities of Denmark and is located directly on the coast. The white sand beaches invite for a jump into the cool water for a refresh.
Today´s trip will lead you to peninsula of Stevns. The road goes along the coast that will quickly take you to Strøby Ladeplads with its numerous holiday houses. Later on, the path goes inland where you pass city of Magleby and Gjorslev castle and finally reach the UNESCO World Heritage Stevns Klint. Steep coast and old church of Højerup invite you to linger to enjoy the breathtaking views. After, in a short while you will reach Rødvig and the idyllic village of Fakse Ladeplads that is located directly by the sea, from there you can take a direct train back to Køge (not included). Athletic tourists can continue cycling for a return journey via Karise and Herfølge.
After Køge, the first part of the route will go along the coast to Karlstrup. The road after, will gently take you away from the coast to explore the inland of this beautiful country. You will cycle along the so-called Hedebostien Cycle Path, which has recently newly renovated and now allows a direct connection between Køge Bay and Roskilde Fjord. You will experience new breathtaking scenic impressions, a beautiful change from the coastal paths. Roskilde has a rich historical past. Take your time for a stroll through historic city center and visit the famous Roskilde Cathedral, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Today you have 3 options of how to spend this day by choosing between 3 routes. The shortest one will take you to Lejre, the Land of Legends, a 43-hectare "outdoor laboratory" for experimental archeology. Another contains a visit to the beautiful castle Ledreborg with its park. And for the ones who want to challenge themselves we provide a choice of a worthy day trip west to Holbæk or north of the fjord along to Frederikssund. Whatever you choose, comfortable train connections are available for return trip and each variant will charm you in its own way.
Today´s stage leads you back to the starting point of your bike tour, the Danish capital Copenhagen. From Albertslund, a recently built bike path will take you to the center, almost free of traffic. In the afternoon there is enough time for you to explore the city on your own. During a stroll, you can fulfil all the wonderful impressions that you have already gained on your bike tour through East Zealand.
After breakfast, your journey ends. We are happy to book an extension stay for you to explore the Danish capital.
On the whole an easy cycle tour which leads through flat and soft hilly landscapes. Mostly own bike paths and small streets without much traffic. Only if entering and leaving cities you need to expect some more traffic.
