Day 2: Copenhagen - Helsingor (Elsinore) - approx. 50 km

Biking through Copenhagen is a fantastic tour start. You will follow the cycle path along the coastline enjoying the magnificent view to Sweden, passing the Little Mermaid and Amalienborg, the Queen's residence. Enjoy the sight of the fashionable houses and pass by the famous beach “Bellevue” before continuing to Dyrehaven, the Royal hunting grounds, with century old trees – and herds of deer.


Located here is also “Bakken”, an old amusement park. In Rungsted you pass the Karen Blixen’s house and Museum “Rungstedlund” (Museum is closed on Mondays, except in July/August).


In Humlebaek you can take a look at the Museum of Modern Art “Louisiana”, and make lunch and coffee stops at the marinas along the route overlooking the water.


Overnight stay in Helsingor area.

 

Day 3: Tour to Sweden and/or the highlights of Helsingor - 31 km/55 km/78 km + Ferry

Highly recommendable is the 2 km ride from Snekkersten to Helsingor and the impressive Kronborg Castle (renowned from Shakespeare's play Hamlet) and the historical city centre.


Also the Danish Maritime Museum listed on the New York Times’ list:”52 places to go in 2014” is a “must” because of it’s fantastic architecture and exciting exhibition.


If those attractions take your time don’t worry. You can choose between 3 stages in Sweden, if you are in lack of time.

On the longest stage you cycle to the rocky peninsula “Kullen”, but you can also choose shorter stages.

The ferry to Sweden runs every 15 minutes, price 8 Euro (not included) for a roundtrip.


Overnight stay in Helsingor area.

 

Day 4: Snekkersten/Helsingor to Hillerod - 60 km/75 km

Hornbæk with nice restaurants and the best beach on the North coast is your first stop today.

You will continue with gentle ups and downs – sometimes close to the beach sometimes through the dunes overlooking the sea to the charming village of Gilleleje.


Head into the woodlands following the bike unpaved trail through the large forest, Gribskov, where the King of Denmark had his hunting grounds in the past. Today’s destination is Hillerød, with an old and picturesque city center and the beautiful Frederiksborg Castle - through the time residence for many Danish kings.


Longer alternative:

Keep cycling along the coast to Tisvildeleje, - the gate to the National Park of Tisvilde Hegn, and a popular summer seaside resort. From here you follow the regional cycle route to Hillerod.


Overnight stay in Hillerod.

 

Day 5: Hillerod to Roskilde - 47 km

From the rural countryside you head for the Roskilde Bay, where you will find charming stops for a break. Roskilde is yet another highlight on the tour. The Cathedral in Roskilde is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and holds 38 burial plots of Danish kings and queens. Do not forget to visit the harbour where you can see the Viking museum, the Viking Ships and the boatyard.


Overnight stay in Roskilde.

 

Day 6: Roskilde to Copenhagen - 46 km

Today you will return to the coastside while approaching Copenhagen from southwest.


You will ride through picturesque villages to the beaches south of the capital. A path takes you along the coast, away from the traffic, all the way to the center of Copenhagen.


Along the way you will pass “Arken” – a museum of modern art, the island “Amager” withthe freetown Christiania and the cosy area of Christianshavn as well as several interesting architectural sights when you cycle along the canal between Zealand and the island Amager.
