Day 1: Individual arrival in Stockholm

Sweden’s capital is the starting point for your bike tour from Stockholm to Copenhagen. Go for a long walk around the city while deciding what you want to visit next. The royal palace, the historic district Gamla Stan and the Vasa museum are definitely worth a visit. In the evening you will be briefed on the tour and receive your bicycles.

Day 2: Stockholm – Södertälje, approx. 60 km

Get on your bike full of energy. Set off along the Mälaren, Sweden's third largest lake, until you reach the island of Lovön. Visit Drottningholm Castle, which was built in a picturesque location directly on the lake. Did you know that the royal family lives in the southern part of the castle? Stroll through the large castle park and past the castle theatre before cycling through extensive fields and forests towards Södertälje.

Day 3: Södertälje – Gothenburg, approx. 15 – 35 km + train- and ferry ride

The bikes stay at the hotel, but today you take your luggage with you on the stage. The express train takes you to the port city of Gothenburg on the west coast in about three hours. Discover the lively city. The Feskekörka, the fish church, was never used as such. For a long time it has served as a restaurant and market hall for the treasures of the sea. Would you rather enjoy the peace and quiet? Then reach the archipelago by boat (not included).

Day 4: Gothenburg – Kungsbacka, approx. 40 – 65 km

At the hotel you will get new bikes for the next stages of your bike tour from Stockholm to Copenhagen. On Kattegattleden you cycle pleasantly flat past rocks and forests, bays and harbours. After visiting the impressive old town in Kungsbacka, it's time for a fika, as the Swedes call their coffee break. Accompanied by a few delicacies like havreflarn or kanelbullar – that's how the day can end.

Day 5: Kungsbacka – Varberg, approx. 60 – 75 km

The salty air of the sea blows around your nose while you enjoy the breathtaking view. You cycle along horse farms and fields to the small town of Åsa. Take a refreshing dip in the sea or walk along the beautiful beach before getting back on your bike. You will recognise your stage destination Varberg from far away. The fortress of the same name was built on a hill directly on the coast and is certainly worth a visit.

Day 6: Varberg – Falkenberg, approx. 40 km + train ride to Helsingborg

Look forward to picturesque fishing villages and many artisans today. If you have always wanted to try freshly cooked lobster, you can do so in Träslövsläge. Continue cycling to Falkenberg, one of the oldest towns in Halland province. Hop on the train (not included) and in about 90 minutes you will reach the harbour town of Helsingborg. This important city is situated at the narrowest point of the Øresund. Stroll through the old town or enjoy the evening at the large harbour.

Day 7: Helsingborg – Helsingør – Copenhagen, approx. 55 km + ferry ride

After breakfast, you'll be on Danish soil in just 20 minutes by ferry (not included). Follow in Shakespeare's footsteps and visit Kronborg Castle in Helsingør, the setting for the drama Hamlet. Then cycle along beautiful beaches and fragrant forests to the vibrant capital of Denmark. The city itself is as colourful as the houses in Nyhavn. Discover Amalienborg Castle, the home of Denmark's Queen Margrethe II and soak up the impressions of your bike tour from Stockholm to Copenhagen with a Smørrebrød.
