Copenhagen

Cycle around Denmark’s main island of Zealand, starting and finishing in the bike-friendly city of Copenhagen with its candle-lit cafés and cool bars. Following flat and well-marked cycle paths along the coast and through the countryside, you’ll sleep in a different historic town each night, taking breaks at sandy beaches, royal castles and Viking settlements en route.

Pedalling along the east coast, you’ll ride into the medieval town of Køge - home to the oldest half-timbered house in Denmark. As the route loops around the south and leads you along the fjord-indented west coast, you’ll taste freshly smoked fish in Korsør and visit the incredible Viking ring fortress of Trelleborg. Continue on to the Viking fjords and cathedral of Roskilde.
