Copenhagen & North-Zealand
Cycle holiday in Denmark
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.
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. A swim in the cool water gives you refreshment. In Helsingør it´s worth to visit Kronborg Castle, or take the ferry for a quick trip to Helsingborg on the Swedish site.
Take some time to visit the old port city of Helsingør before continuing your bike ride. The coastal resorts Hornbæk and Gilleleje will charm you and invite you to linger. Your further route now leads away from the coast. You will pass extensive nature reserves and small lakes. You will be impressed by the many contrasts before you reach the goal of the day Helsinge or Hillerød, respectively. Visit Frederiksborg Castle or just treat yourself with a good glass of wine in the hotel - both can be a great way to spend the rest of the day.
Today you cycle back to the coast. The small idyllic villages Tisvildeleje and Liseleje as well as numerous beaches exude their charm. You have reached today's goal with Højby. The picturesque small town is located on the opposite side of the Isefjord. The ferry ticket to Rørvig is included for you.
In the Odsherred peninsula you will always be close-by the sea, dunes and 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 goal for today is the port city of Holbæk that was first mentioned in 1199. Here we recommend you to visit the Protestant-Lutheran Church of St. Nikolai.
Today you start south along the Isefjord. You will discover green meadows and small charming villages. The last part 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 also part of UNESCO World Heritage. A visit to the Viking Ship Museum is also recommended.
The last 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 North 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.
