Arrival in Rostock
Rostock is the perfect location for the start of your tour to the Danish islands. Travellers are responsible for their transportation to the destination hotel in Rostock.
During the course of the morning, cycle or take the commuter train (fare payable on-site) to the harbour. Take the ferry to Gedser. The ferry ride takes approx. 2 hours. Cycle to Marielyst and Nykøbing. Many artists, small galleries and museums invite you to stop in on your way to Nykøbing.
Along the Guldborgsunds, you cycle up to the island of Zealand. Neastved, one of the oldest cities in the country. Take a detour to the castle Gavno. On Gavno, you experience history, art and nature. The castle park is home to more than ½ million bulbs, a rose garden and many rare species of plants and trees. Nearby Beastveds, enjoy the candy country and a glassworks to your visit. Overnight in or near Naestved.
Cycle northwest through the Great Belt where everyone is in a great holiday mood. Swimming areas, restaurants, and cafés characterise the surroundings. Karesbaekstorp is filled with art galleries. Before continuing to Korsør, enjoying some freshly smoked fish in the smokehouse is necessary.
Just West of Slagelse you will find an excellent replica from Viking times, the Trelleborg. On route, pass Lake Tissø, known for numerous bird species, which find their home there. Your destination is Kalundborg in the North. The church with five towers and the Old Town, Højby, with its crooked town homes, have been very well preserved.
Your cycling tour takes 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. Turn in your rental bike and enjoy your evening. Overnight in Copenhagen.
