Copenhagen Shares the Bike Love
May 24, 2012
Why not experience the green island of Samsø at the helm of a prairie wagon? You can hire a prairie wagon for a week’s holiday and take in the island’s sights at a relaxed pace.
The Nature Agency produces information leaflets containing maps and descriptions of all public nature areas in Denmark.
There is a long tradition of delicious smoked fish on the island, particularly herring, mackerel and salmon. Many of the smokehouses are still in use with the characteristic chimneys and tempting smoked scent.
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.
You’ll experience superb conditions for windsurfing, with some of the best in Europe found at Klitmøller, on the West Coast.
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.
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.
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.
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.
