Begin your Zealand adventure with a scenic detour to the island's west coast, passing through the historically significant town of Naestved and marveling at the grandeur of Gavnø Castle and its expansive park. Along the coast, immerse yourself in maritime charm as you explore picturesque fishing villages like Kaerebaeksminde.

In Roskilde, delve into the Viking era and explore the fjord bearing the same name. The following day marks the highly anticipated arrival in Copenhagen! Enjoy a dedicated rest day to immerse yourself in the charms of the Danish capital and its iconic landmarks. Before embarking on the final stretch back to Køge, capture a selfie with the Little Mermaid to share with loved ones back home. Take advantage of the remaining time for a refreshing swim or a leisurely stroll through the quaint old town.

  • A stroll through the parks of Gavnø: Renowned for its magnificent baroque architecture and sprawling gardens, this palace boasts an impressive array of art and porcelain collections within its walls. The adjacent gardens are celebrated for their vibrant floral displays, particularly during the annual tulip festival in spring.
  • In addition to the famous Little Mermaid at the harbor, the imposing Christiansborg Palace, the colorful Nyhavn harbor, and the charming Christianshavn district are also recommended to visit in the Danish capital. The Tivoli Gardens are a popular attraction for young and old, as is the open-air museum Den Gamle By.
  • The Roskilde Fjord spans approximately 40 kilometers, boasting idyllic landscapes with verdant hills, quaint islands, and picturesque coastal towns. Renowned for its maritime legacy, the fjord is home to the renowned Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde, showcasing a remarkable collection of Viking ships and artifacts.

Itinerary at a glance

The island of Zealand enchants with its vast dune landscapes and beautiful beaches. At Gavnø Castle, not only the rose garden is well worth a visit, but in Copenhagen, many attractions, Tivoli, and inviting cafes await.

Arrival in Køge

Today's stretch takes you through Zealand's green South to one of the island's oldest towns on the West coast, Naestved. Take an excursion to the castle of Gavnø. There are over ½ million bulbs, a rose garden, and many rare plants and trees on the castle grounds. You may want to visit the theme park, "Bonbon Land" or the glass factory nearby.

Today your journey takes you further northwest through the landscape of the Great Belt. Beautiful beaches and dune landscapes characterize the picture around the vacation and fishing village Kaerebaeksminde. Wonderful atmospheres with bathing life, camping, restaurants and cafes can be experienced here. The fishing and town museum will guide you through the history of the village. Art galleries with changing exhibitions can be found in Kaerebaekstorp. The journey then continues inland to your next stop in the interior.

Your cycling tour leads you to the coast and fjords at Roskilde today. First, Iselfjord, then Roskildefjord. The tombs of many Danish kings and queens are found in the Roskilde Cathedral. If you like, follow the Vikings as you row or sail across the fjord in a Viking replica.

Today's stretch, the last stretch of your tour, is a little shorter and takes you back to the capital. Spend the afternoon in a quaint café or visit the Tivoli Gardens. Hand in your rental bike and enjoy your evening. Overnight in Copenhagen.

Today belongs to Copenhagen and its sights. Discover the Danish capital by bike, which is certainly the No. 1 means of transport here and has an excellent network of bike paths.
