Family Cycling holidays Denmark


The southern part of Funen and nearby islands are

very popular summer destinations for active travellers with room for everybody.


Whether you are into cycling to lovely beaches, to breath taking hills with stunning views, or to charming villages with cosy cafés, the south of Funen is something for you.

 

Sailing is an important part of your holiday in south Funen.

 


The ferry ride to Aero gives you intriguing glimpses of small islands inhabitated by few people – some of them only grazing cattle. 

 

Aero itself is a highlight – fertile landscapes with small farms between the rolling hills and small, old maritime towns.

 

Everyday you can choose between different routes to match your specific desires and needs.
