Experience the Danish "hygge" on a bike
Denmark offers the perfect opportunity to escape the stressful everyday life at home. Because in this beautiful country, life is cosier, stress-free and more relaxed. The so-called "hygge", which means contentment, happiness and cosiness, is an important part of the Danish philosophy of life. Recharge your energy stores on a cycle tour in Denmark and enjoy the deceleration. But the peninsula is not only known for its cosy lifestyle, but also for its unique cycle paths and routes. That's why the bike is also the perfect vehicle to explore this diverse country.
Cycle tours in Copenhagen
What city could be better for a cycling holiday than Copenhagen? None, because the city has held the title of "most bicycle-friendly city in the world" since 2015. All of Copenhagen rides a bike. Commuters in particular rely on bicycles, because a total of 65 percent of the way to work or school is done by bike. That's more people than commute by bike in the entire USA, for example. Well-developed cycle paths separated from road traffic are part of the reason for this. That's why you can look forward to a leisurely tour on our cycle tours through Copenhagen, far away from the hectic city traffic. Enjoy the Danish capital and the impressive nature outside the city walls.

Cycle tours in Jutland
Danish Jutland is a peninsula, encompassing all regions on the mainland and dividing the Baltic and North Seas. In the south, it borders on neighbouring Germany. Thanks to its geographical location, you will find beautiful, unspoilt sandy beaches, kilometres of coastline, lush forests, charming fishing villages, but also modern cities in Jutland. You can get to know and love this unique area better on our cycle tours along the Danish coasts, as well as through the interior of the country. We are sure that Jutland will inspire you!
Culture lovers take note! On our East Jutland cycle tour, the European Capital of Culture of 2017, Aarhus, awaits you. The university city in the north of Denmark presents itself with charming squares, cosy coffee houses, exciting museums and multimedia libraries. After sightseeing, head out into nature. A day trip to the "Green Island" gives you the opportunity to explore Samsø on your own.
Danish Baltic Sea Route
Have you ever heard of the Little Belt? No, then you have missed something. Because it lies in the strait between the Jutland peninsula and the island of Funen and presents itself as a true cycling paradise. The perfectly developed cycle paths, the Baltic Sea and the picturesque islands are sure to amaze you. You will be offered unique views on our "Danish Baltic Sea Route".
The climate in Denmark
Its special location between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea gives Denmark a mild climate, regulated by the two seas. The flat land in turn ensures that it rains relatively little compared to Central Europe - the amount is about ten percent less than the German average. For cycling, this is of course just as pleasant as the moderate temperatures, which vary between about 2 degrees daytime in winter and 20 degrees in midsummer. In addition, the flat land is ideal for a leisurely cycle between the larger towns.
Since Denmark is a peninsula and has many harbour towns, fishing has developed into a significant economic factor. However, the fish are not only exported worldwide, but are also found on the domestic menu. A typical fish dish of the Danes is torsk, in English cod, with boiled potatoes and mustard sauce. But the absolute classic is the so-called smørrebrød, the impressive open sandwiches. Whether with butter, herring and egg yolk or salmon and dill, there are no limits to creativity when it comes to toppings. Meat lovers will also get their money's worth in Denmark, with numerous hot dog carts waiting on the Danish streets with hot bon appétit!
