The whole country at your feet
Cycling in Denmark is safe and easy. With the following ideas, information and inspiration, you and your family can get planning and pedalling for a cycling holiday to remember.
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.
Where two seas meet
Stand in two different seas at Grenen, Denmark’s most northerly point or visit Råbjerg Mile, Denmark's largest shifting sand dune, which is slowly moving from west to the east.
You’ll experience superb conditions for windsurfing, with some of the best in Europe found at Klitmøller, on the West Coast.
Sejerø is a beautiful and peaceful island, with undulating landscape and many small swimming beaches. Visit the old church, with its fine fresco paintings, or any of the many burial mounds on the island. You can reach the island by ferry from Havnsø.
You will witness a very special light when the weather is clear at Odsherred, a peninsula jutting out into the mouth of Isefjord. From here, you can see beautiful views as far as the eye can see.
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.
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.
Jazz and fruit!
Visit Denmark’s number one place for fruit production, the island of Fejø. Femø island nearby is famous for its traditional jazz festival. You’ll be amazed to see that on the small island of Askø, no point is higher than four metres above sea level.
