Denmark is the perfect place to get away from it all and enjoy cycling in the wide open spaces of one of the world's best cycling holiday destinations. The Danish even have a term for this called 'hygge'. This is the philosophy of being content, happy, and feeling cosy whilst doing something that you love.
The Danes love to cycle and Denmark has an extensive network of cycle routes and cycle paths (approx. 11,000 km) which means that you can get almost anywhere by bike.
Out of all of the cities that our cycling holidays set off from, few can be better for a cycling holiday than the Danish capital of Copenhagen. The city is one of the most cycle-friendly destinations in the whole world and has held the title of 'most bike-friendly city in the world' since 2015.
Over 65% of commuters travel by bike to work or school. Well-designed cycle paths stretch right across the city and many cycle paths are segregated away from traffic. Many of our cycling holidays start in Copenhagen and head into the surrounding North Zealand region. Beyond the capital region, North Jutland is great for seeing a different side of Denmark.
North Jutland is a peninsula that divides the Baltic and North Seas. In the south, Jutland is connected to Germany and is only a couple of hours away from Hamburg. Thanks to its great location, you will find unspoilt beaches, large stretches of coastline, forests and trendy cities such as Aarhus.
Cycling holidays are an excellent way to see new places and ride between cities and there is no added pressure on getting to the hotel in the fastest time possible.
We have a wide selection of cycle tours to choose from available across Europe, but several key themes are constant throughout.
We've highlighted several reasons why you should go on a self-guided cycling holiday in our overview video.
