TRIP DESCRIPTION

Set across the Danish islands of Zealand and Amager, Copenhagen was originally a viking village. It is now the capital city of Denmark - where the Danes have a reputation as being the happiest people in the world. It is so easy to explore as you can go everywhere by bike.

The daily tours offer a wide variety of experiences. Bike along stunning coastlines with beautiful beaches, pass adorable marinas, visit major royal cities like Hillerod and Roskilde and other highlights like The Little Mermaid and Tivoli in Copenhagen. Denmark is a safe place to ride a bike, and there are several possibilities to extend the daily trips for those who want to. Sand, sea, culture, and history united with a living and modern capital - this trip gives you the opportunity to experience everything. Copenhagen is the bicycle capital of the world and cycling here is wonderful! But come and see for yourself!

Terrain

A gentle cycle tour through flat and low hilly landscapes. Most of the routes are on bike paths and small streets without much traffic. When entering and leaving cities you need to expect some more traffic.

I was speaking with Helen H. She was not only very pleasant, but also very helpful and patient. She answered all my questions. Her quote arrived very quickly and it helped me to make my decision to book the trip.
The most important things: clear information, no hidden costs, no pressure to add any extras.
I was offered a standard room or upgrade, more details were provided upon my request together with price, so I could make an informed decision.
Very happy and I will use your agency
again in the future.

Nora , 14 Oct 2023

Great service from Joanne - I had researched using the website over a weekend, and when I called the office Joanne was able to assist, look into flight and hotel options. She kept me updated by phone and email, and the whole booking process was easy. She was familiar with the trip/location/hotels so was able to give comments and options with her knowledge. Gives me great confidence and I'm really looking forward to the holiday
