Wed, May 3 to Fri, May 12 - 2023

Show Itinerary:

All you have to do is get to the airport. On our Air Packages, we’ll take care of the rest, handling all the logistics, so you can travel with peace of mind. Spend your first night aloft and arrive refreshed for an unforgettable trip.

Start off your first day in Copenhagen right by having a VBT representative greet you at the airport. A complimentary car service will whisk you to your centrally located hotel. From here, you are perfectly positioned to explore this charming city at your leisure.

After an included breakfast, meet your VBT local guide at 8:45 a.m. in the lobby of The Square Hotel. Please remember NOT to pack your passport in your checked luggage and to bring the passport with you in your carry-on as you may need to present the passport to Swedish Immigration officials upon entering Sweden.

You travel 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. Enjoy a guided tour of the Renaissance-style Elsinore castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

You will enjoy lunch on your own before boarding 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 arrival to Helsingborg, meet your trip leaders at the hotel for a bike-fitting and safety briefing. Afterwards check into your hotel, change to your cycling gear and begin your warm-up ride along the scenic southern coast of Sweden to the picturesque fishing village of Råå. The 2.5-mile-wide strait you are cycling along separates Sweden from Denmark and is one of the busiest waterways in the world, connecting the Baltic Sea to the North Sea and Atlantic Ocean. Later, settle into your hotel on Helsingborg’s waterfront, discovering this charming city with a bustling harbor and Hamlet’s castle in the distance across the Öresund.

This evening, step out with your group to one of Helsingborg’s oldest buildings for your festive smörgåsbord welcome dinner. Your dinner is catered by a local chef who will introduce you to the history, flavors, and etiquette of Sweden’s most famous style of dining.

Please note, Sweden has become almost entirely cashless. Most venues will not accept cash and will only accept payment using credit/debit cards. ATMs are only available in Helsingborg on the first two days of your tour for any cash needs (such as tips).

Today’s Ride Choices

What to Expect:

Cross the waterway on a ferry to Sweden between Helsingör, Denmark, and Helsingborg, Sweden.  Cycle the flat bike path in Sweden along the Øre Sound.

Cumulative Distance Range: 4.5 km (9 miles)

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

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 more of the scenic Kattegattleden bike path. 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 spin has several lunch options along the way: perhaps a seaside restaurant or a lovely garden café.

After lunch, you may choose to shuttle or continue riding on the lovely coastal route back to your hotel in Helsinborg. Spend the remainder of the afternoon and evening exploring Helsingborg, the oldest town in Sweden.  Always a strategic city for its location at the narrowest point on the Öresund, it changed hands from Danish to Swedish in 1658 after the Dano-Swedish War. During World War II, a sort of underground railroad here known secretly as the Elsinore Sewing Club helped Jews escape Nazi persecution. Today, Helsingborg is a picturesque seaside gem friendly to cyclists.

Named Europe’s Cycle Route of the Year 2018, this scenic, 242-mile (390 km) bike path stretches from Gothenburg to Helsingborg. It was Sweden’s first national bicycle route and is an inspiration to local and visiting cyclists.  Traversing Sweden’s southernmost county, Skåne County, reveals a varied landscape of forest and open shoreline meadows. Along the coast, you also spin through seaside communities such as the small village of Skepparkrogen and Torekov where you will enjoy the next two nights at your charming spa hotel.

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 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.)

I have wanted to visit the Nordic countries since 1974 when I was an exchange student in Europe. Thank you, VBT, for finally making it an affordable destination! As always, the travel arrangements were seamless, the leaders were phenomenal, and the experience was second to none!

Esbehr, Clark, NJ, United States

Cycling Scandinavia: Copenhagen to Stockholm

We've taken 16 VBT trips and the Scandinavia trip is definitely in the top two or three trips we've taken with them. Whoever laid this trip out really knew what they were doing. Great biking, three beautiful and most interesting cities: Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Helsinki, ferry ride experiences, the Stockholm Archipelago, great hotels, good food, incredible museums and wonderful guides who really knew the area and culture. This trip is one of VBT's very best and it won't surprise me to see it become their signature trip!
