Back from extinction
A blustery beauty
The sea is rougher here than in other parts of Denmark, making these beaches excellent water sports areas. If you’re looking for more child-friendly and family areas for swimming, try the coastal area around Limfjord.
Cyclists love West Zealand, with its many sign-posted cycle routes and easy access from Copenhagen. Hike the area’s many popular sign-posted routes, such as those across the Odsherred peninsula.
Enjoy Denmark's calm, sheltered waters
The gently undulating landscape of South Zealand and the flat islands of Lolland and Falster are great places to get on your bike and cycle round the region. Cycle routes are easy to find and well sign-posted.
A beach for everyone!
Beaches and coastal inlets
You can play on many North Zealand golf courses as a non-member and they are close enough to each other that you can try different courses out over one holiday. You'll find courses for golfers of all abilities in the region.
The rugged North
Anglers head to Funen for some of Europe's best coastal angling spots, particular good for catching sea trout. You’ll find great locations for angling on both Funen and the South Funen Archipelago.
Peace and quiet
As well as great beaches around the coast of Funen itself, the South Funen Archipelago also offers great opportunities for swimming. Since the distances are short between beaches, it’s never far to your own quiet bit of beach.
On the island of Læsø out in the Kattegat, you can access large stretches of untouched nature and the island is almost entirely circled by wide beaches, with seal colonies and other wildlife.

Stags in season
Built for bike lanes
Copenhagen is covered by 350km of cycle paths and lanes which are raised from the road and really safe to cycle on. Some city junctions even have flashing lights when cyclists approach to warn drivers before they turn.
