4. Take the family exploring
The main town of the Baltic Sea island of Møn, Stege is an idyllic destination with Tuesday market days from 1 July-5 August 2014. The 29 km easy to cycle route starts at the town’s medieval gate and winds through Ulvshale, an area with holiday homes and open farmland with views of the archipelago. Reaching the bridge to the small island of Nyord where the landscape changes to salt marsh and wetland rich in birdlife. The cycle route passes a ‘sensual path’ at the Ulvshalegård nature centre which lets you explore the sensual qualities of the open nature – a great way for children to learn about the natural world. The quaint village of Nyord offers a feeling of lands-end romance. Here, there is a range of small cafés and craft boutiques.
