Itinerary

Sun, May 10 to Tue, May 19 - 2020

Show Itinerary:

Depart from home for Copenhagen. The particulars of your arrival overseas are detailed with your flight itinerary.

Upon arrival at the Copenhagen airport, claim your luggage and clear customs. If your luggage is lost, fill in a PIR form before leaving the customs area; VBT representatives are not allowed into the customs area. Make sure that your VBT luggage tags are attached to your bags. This helps the representative identify you.

VBT’s local representative / driver will meet you outside the customs area in your arrival terminal and will be holding a VBT sign. If you have trouble locating your VBT representative /driver, please contact Allianz Global Assistance to advise of your delay or contact Copenhagen Limousine Service directly at +45 70260601. If outside office hours or during national holidays an answering machine will advise you with the information on how to contact the company’s emergency staff on duty. Your VBT representative / driver will help you transfer to your hotel.

If you are going to be delayed meeting the transfer representative due to delayed or lost luggage, please contact Allianz Global Assistance to advise of your delay, and they will contact our transfer service. The drivers are generally able to wait for up to 45 minutes from the time your flight lands, after which you will be responsible for your own transfer.

Please note: If you arrive early, your hotel room may not be available until 4:00 p.m. You may store your luggage with the reception desk.

VBT transfer times and departure points are finalized in advance and cannot be modified for individual guests. If you fly in earlier than the scheduled program dates, transportation from the airport will be at your own expense.

Hotel: The Square

Meet your VBT local guide at 8:45 a.m. in the lobby of The Square Hotel. Please come dressed for cycling (with your pedals or saddle if you use your own), as there will be no place to change into cycling clothes before beginning the warm-up ride. Please remember NOT to pack your passport in your checked luggage and to carry the passport with you in your hand luggage as you may need to present the passport to Swedish Immigration officials upon entering Sweden.

You will transfer with your local VBT guide to the city of Helsingör. This historic city overlooking Øre Sound, or Øresund to the locals, is called “Elsinore” in English and is known to Shakespeare readers as the site of Hamlet’s castle. You will have a guided tour of Elsinore castle before enjoying lunch on your own.

After lunch, meet your trip leaders for a bike-fitting and safety briefing and begin your warm-up ride along the scenic eastern coast of Denmark. The 2½-mile-wide strait you are cycling along separates Denmark from Sweden and is one of the busiest waterways in the world, connecting the Baltic Sea to the Atlantic Ocean. Arriving back in Helsingör, you board the ferry for the 20-minute crossing of the Öresund to the Swedish city of Helsingborg. During the ferry ride, you might snack on a local favorite, “two reds and a green”—a pair of sausages and a Tuborg beer. Upon disembarking in Sweden, you will shuttle to your historic countryside manor house.

Later, gather with your trip leaders and fellow travelers for a welcome reception and dinner prepared by your inn’s talented chef.

After breakfast, you cycle from your inn on country roads leading you through the surrounding countryside. Your flat, easy bicycle route takes you through forests and meadows to quaint villages and around numerous lakes. Stop in the morning at a typical countryside home for fika, the traditional Swedish coffee break.

Cycle back to the hotel and enjoy the afternoon at your lakefront inn with numerous activities such as hiking, rowing on the lake or paddling canoes, or simply relaxing in one of the unique eco-friendly saunas and hot tubs. Before your included dinner tonight, enjoy listening to a local folkloric group’s performance and learn about their traditional costumes and a unique Swedish musical instrument, nyckelharpa.

Leaving the inland countryside this morning, you will shuttle to the west coast of Sweden. Today’s cycling will start outside the port city of Halmstad on the Kattegattleden cycle route. Named Europe’s Cycle Route of the Year 2018, this scenic, 242-mile (390-km) bike path follows Sweden’s west coast from Gothenburg to Helsingborg. It was Sweden’s first national bicycle route and an inspiration to local and visiting cyclists.

Your introduction to the bike path will pass some of Sweden’s longest sandy beaches and beautiful wide meadows and tree-studded hillsides before arriving in the charming resort town of Båstad, home to Sweden’s Tennis Open—held each summer since 1948. Explore the shops and cafés at your leisure before cycling to nearby Norrviken Gardens, chosen as Sweden’s most beautiful garden and Europe’s second-most beautiful garden in 2006. Enjoy a savory lunch on your own in the estate’s villa before joining a tour of one of the year’s specially themed gardens.

After your garden visit, shuttle the short distance to the village of Torekov and settle into your charming spa hotel.

This evening, enjoy dinner in the resort’s poolside restaurant with distant views of the sea.

Today’s Ride Choice:
Cumulative Distance Range: 40.9 km (25.3 miles)
Morning
Halmstad to Norrviken Gardens: 40.9 km (25.3 miles)

What to Expect: Cycle the Kattegattleden dedicated paved bike lane and path along Sweden’s coast to the seaside resort town of Båstad. The route alternates between a cycle path and a dedicated bike lane on country roads and village streets. Traffic in Båstad can increase during the summer months, especially in July during the weeks of Sweden’s Tennis Open tournament.

After breakfast, you will cycle through the manicured farmlands and small villages of the Bjäre Pennisula with distant views of the Kattegatt Sea. Civilization on the peninsula dates to the Bronze Age, and traces of the cultivated terraces of that time can still be found today. Picture-perfect Swedish landscapes with rolling farmland and neat red farmhouses mark your progress today toward Hovs Hallar—the steepest coastal region of the peninsula. Explore by foot the nature park with its steep, red cliffs and pebbled beaches.

Afterward, as you ride back toward your hotel, pause to savor a lovely picnic lunch at the old quarry and Viking burial grounds of Dagshög. Enjoy your sumptuous picnic while feasting your eyes on the vistas of the peninsula’s rugged shoreline and distant nature-reserve island of Hallands Väderö.

It is a short ride from here to your hotel, where you may spend the afternoon relaxing by the pool or taking advantage of one of the spa treatments. (The spa is quite popular with the locals, so book in advance with your trip leaders when you meet them on the first day of the bike tour.)

Enjoy the evening and dinner at your leisure. You may opt to enjoy dinner in the hotel’s restaurant, walk into the village of Torekov, or take a shuttle into the town of Båstad where you will find a variety of restaurants.

Hotel: Torekov Hotell
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Today’s Ride Choice:
Cumulative Distance Range: 41.3 km (25.6 miles)
Morning
Torekov Hotell to Hovs Hallar Loop: 41.3 km (25.6 miles)

This morning, you will continue your ride south, at times joining the ever-familiar Kattegattleden bike route. Traversing Sweden’s southernmost county, Skåne County, will reveal a varied landscape of forest and open shoreline meadows. Along the coast, you’ll also spin through seaside communities such as the small village of Skepparkrogen. Upon arrival in the town of Ängelholm, enjoy lunch at your leisure.

In the afternoon, cycle or hop a train to Helsingborg, the oldest town in Sweden and your home for the next two nights.
For dinner on your own this evening, you might venture out from your centrally located hotel to one of Helsingborg’s numerous restaurants.

Set off from Helsingborg by bike, following a cycling route along the sea. On the outskirts of town, pedal past a castle and forest, enjoying the coastal beauty along the Kattegat—the shallow sea between Denmark and Sweden. Your morning ride follows the Kattegattleden route, an inspiration to local and visiting cyclists. Coast past quaint fishing villages with cozy thatch-roofed homes and boat-filled harbors. Admire stunning vistas of shoals and grassy bluffs overlooking the Kattegat. Soon, you turn inland near the town of Arild and pass dairy farms and small vineyards presided over by a windmill atop a gentle rise. Your refreshing morning reel has several lunch options along the way: a seaside restaurant or a lovely garden café.

After lunch, you may choose to shuttle in the van or continue riding to the town of Ängelholm. From here, you hop on a train for a 30-minute ride back to Helsingborg.
