Bike tour with a guide
Going by bike is a very Danish thing. By tradition we transport ourselves by bicycle on an everyday basis throughout life. The bike is also ideal for a holiday or if you want to experience a bit more of the city than just the very central core. If we want to go out into the countryside, it's great with the free exercise provided by the bike. Furthermore to feel the wind in our hair and to enjoy all the scents that greet us without any filtres.// List ?>
Viking Biking Tour
We take a nice bike ride from Lejre to Roskilde, where we follow in the footsteps of the Vikings.
We take the train to Roskilde, with possibility of renting bicycles, if you do not already have your own bicycle. We go from Roskilde by train to Lejre, where the best landscape with Viking monuments is located. I'll tell the story of among other things Beowolf, as it unfolded here on the spot. When we come to Roskilde, we visit the Viking Ship Museum, where it is possible to sail on a real Viking ship and where you can also enjoy a Viking meal! If we have time, we go on a short city-walk in Roskilde, where we also have to drop off the bikes, if they are rented.

Beautiful Bike Tour Ringe-Korinth by a Disused Railway Line
Guided bike tour from Ringe (in the middle of Funen) by a disused railway line, now asphalted road and utmost comfortable for biking. We will ride at a moderate pace through the beautiful landscape of Funen from Ringe to Korinth and to the manor house of Brahetrolleborg.
We will pass by the manor of Boltinggård, the small towns of Espe and Højrup, the Viking castle of the designer Jim Lyngvild, Ravnsborg, to Korinth with its recently restored charming inn. From here we go to Brahetrolleborg and pay a visit to the church containing a beautiful baptismal font made by the famous Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen. Our ride back to Ringe can be by smaller side roads or by the disused railway line again, if that is preferable.
The countryside is not very hilly, and we will make reasonable stops on the way, both for drinking and for pieces of information. I recommend the use of a bicycle helmet.
The tour starts and ends at Ringe Railway Station. Total distance about 36 km.

Copenhagen Among the Kings – Foot and Bike Tour
A city walk and bike tour to show you Copenhagen's most important, classic attractions and brings you close to the kings that onces excisted in the city.
The program can be adjusted as desired.
We walk from the Little Mermaid past the citadelle to the Gefion fountain, and we drive along the old ramparts which marked the city's borders during the Middle Ages. We are close to the rich heritage of Christian IV's 16th century Copenhagen, such as the marine houses at Nyboder, Rosenborg Castle and the Round Tower. The city walk can include a visit to the idyllic Rosenborg Castle, which houses the collection of the Royal Jewels.
We go through the palaces of Amalienborg Square and see the change of the Royal Guards; The personal life guard, introduced by Frederik III as the country's first Danish-speaking regiment. The castle is Queen Margrethes and the Crown Prince's Winter Residence, but was originally planned by the 17th century Frederik V as public housing and is the gem of the aristocratic quarter he named after himself: Frederiksstaden.
Then we take a stroll along the canal of Nyhavn, dug by Swedish prisoners of war in the 17th century. The place was a long time one of the city's creepy neighborhoods, but today is one of the most picturesque and popular places in Copenhagen, filled with cafes and small restaurants. H.C. Andersen loved Nyhavn, and between his many travels abroad he came to live in three different houses here.
Then we pass over to the medieval part of the city and stop at Christiansborg Palace, where five castles were constructed followed each other and is where the parliament is located today. We descend under the present building to see the ruins of the first two castles; namely Copenhagen founder Bishop Absalon's 12th-century castle and the Copenhagen Castle, which replaced it in the 14th century.
After a trip around Copenhagen City Hall, we stop at Our Lady Church and experience a mood of Danish Golden Age. The church, which is the cathedral of Copenhagen, houses some of the sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen's best work – among others, his great figure of jesus Christ. The neighborhood around the church was the home of the philosopher Søren Kierkegaards; he spent all his life here. To finish the tour, we climb the spiral corridor on Chrisitan IV's Round Tower.
There may be changes in the order due to any worship services in Our Lady Church.

We continue the bike ride through the woods on good wide trails. The trails are especially suitable for those who have limited experience with mountain biking.
We end the tour by biking around the Paradise Bay, and it is certainly not an exaggeration that the bay has this name.
The price is DKK 500 per person – min. 4 people.
A bike tour - why
By tradition we transport ourselves by bicycle in Denmark. We start our biking tradition when we as children get our first walking bike. The next bike comes with support wheels and later the two-wheeled ones follow. As we grow, so does the bikes and the distance we can get around increases. Have you noticed how happy small children become when they are allowed to frolic on their walking bikes? The joy of independence is a lifelong feeling of freedom that continues on all the following bike tours.
Holidays on bicycles
Many people are familiar with going on holiday by bicycle. Feeling the wind in your hair, the scents that your nose discovers, the ability to stop or take a break right where you want. This is the essence of a cycling holiday. When several generations are going together, it also ensures that everyone is equally tired at the end of the day.
A cycling holiday is good exercise as well as a great way to experience Denmark. If you want to know more about the area you are enjoying on your cycling holiday, we recommend you let a local guide come along to reveal all the good stories as you experience Denmark together.
Experience the city by bike
Do you want to experience a city without facing the challenge of parking a car? Then the bicycle will be the perfect means of transport. On the bike you can get almost anywhere and often make shortcuts. If you let a local guide accompany you, the guide knows the cycle paths, shortcuts and best cycle routes.
In Copenhagen, the guide can lead the way and show you the new super cycle path and relevant detours. Together with your guide, you can also go by bike to Kalveboderne on a tour gathering herbs. Or you can experience Sydhavnen with all the exciting contrasts. If you're more focused on enjoying the inner city, the bike is an obvious mean of transport. Fortunately there are many great cycle paths so it's very easy to get around. The guide leads the way and knows where to guide you.
You can also go on a guided bike tour in Odense, where a tour through the history of the city's liberation is a good choice. It is all about the end of the World War II in Odense and the guide knows where history unfolded. It is a story of sadness and joy. Odense aims to be Denmark's No. 1 cycling city and calls itself the City of Cyclists. The city also has a really nice information page about Cyklisternes by Odense. Unfortunately it is in Danish only. Google may reveal itself being your friend if you want to know more about Odense Cycling City.
From Odense, it is also an obvious choice to go by bike along some of the wonderful cycle paths and let the guide take you to places such as Langesø and Kerteminde or somewhere else entirely. There are many good cycling experiences on Funen, the island that would like to be Denmark's, and even the world's, best cycling island.
By bike in nature
It is so obvious to experience the Danish nature by bicycle. You can cycle in many places. The cycling island of Funen, the beautiful nature around Vejle and lovely Zealand and Lolland-Falster. The options are numerous - even more than you can see in our list of guided bike tours. If you would like a guide, get in touch and we will find you a guide.
We are happy to say visit Denmark by bike with Guide Service Denmark and our bicycle guides.
