The Kingdom of Denmark is the southernmost country within Scandinavia, and perhaps the most cyclist-friendly as 80% of Danish people own a bicycle. With flat terrain—the country’s highest elevation is only 561 feet—and over 7,000 miles of marked bike routes, you’ll enjoy easy cycling along scenic landscapes and through inviting towns. Your VBT bicycling vacation will bring you closer to the people of Denmark, which has been named both the happiest nation in the world, and the least corrupt.
Our itinerancy sweeps you through southern Scandinavia from the bustling street of Denmark’s innovative capital, Copenhagen. Founded as a Viking fishing settlement in the 10th century, today Copenhagen is one of Europe’s most modern and technologically advanced cities while still maintaining its Old World charm. Out in the country, you’ll enjoy coastal biking routes that trace the Ore Sound up to Helsingör, home of the Kronborg castle—a Renaissance-era castle and UNESCO World heritage site that served as the inspiration for Elsinore in Shakespeare’s play Hamlet.
As an active traveler, Denmark is a fantastic country for Americans to visit. While the main language is Danish, over 86% of Denmark’s people speak English as a second language. The country’s high latitude also makes for cooler temperatures and longer hours of daylight than mainland Europe during the summer months—perfect for bikers who want to enjoy every second spent outdoors. So join us in discovering the land that gave us Hans Christen Anderson, and make your own fairytale with VBT.
