This is a relaxing cycling holiday on the islands of Hiddensee, Rügen and Usedom. You explore these Baltic islands at your own speed. The natural beauty of the islands is everywhere – on the long-drawn island of Hiddensee, the impressive Cape Arkona and the steep chalk cliffs on Rügen and the beaches of Usedom. The great thing on this holiday is that you're not in a different hotel every night and you get to spend a few days on the beach. This cycling holiday on Hiddensee and Rügen is ideal for people who enjoy cycling, but don't want to face the pressure every day of cycling longer legs of the journey.

Day 1: Individual arrival in Stralsund

The starting point for your cycling tour is the old Hanseatic city of Stralsund. Stroll through the old town which was founded by the Slavs and was developed into a city by the Westphalians. The city was under Swedish control for 200 years before being taken over by the Prussians. The upkeep of the historical architecture of the town led to its declaration as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Marine Museum is also worth a visit.

Day 2: Stralsund – Hiddensee – Breege / Glowe / Sagard, approx. 15 – 20 km + boat trip

In the morning you will take the ferry which will take you over the Strelasund to the island of Hiddensee. You will have enough time to pay a visit to the 28 metre high lighthouse known as Leuchtfeuer Dornbusch and take the opportunity to let the attractive landscape impress you. In the afternoon you will reach Breege on Rügen by boat.

Day 3: Circular tour of Cape Arkona, approx. 25 – 50 km

Cape Arkona, the northernmost point on Rügen, is, at 45 m high, an impressive sight. Enjoy the peace and quiet – you're in a carfree zone! Visit the picturesque fishing village of Vitt, which comprises a handful of small, thatched cottages. Not only is the octagonal chapel an interesting sight. South of Vitt, you can enjoy the best view of the famous Cape Arkona!

Day 4: Day in the water in Breege / Glowe

Your day at the beach with sand and sea has arrived. Walk barefoot through the sand, hop into the salty waves or have a good read of your book in a typical beach chair. The old captain's houses along the main road in Breege are a reminder of the old sea-faring culture of this small town. A pleasant day in the saddle on Rügen!

Day 5: Breege / Glowe – Sassnitz, approx. 30 – 45 km

Your cycling holiday takes you along the Schaabe, which connects Wittow and Jasmund in a crescent shape. On the way, visit the oldest castle on the island, Castle Spyker. With its red facade, it is very striking. Today's destination, Sassnitz, even impressed Emperor Wilhelm and Theodor Fontane! Fontane once wrote: To travel to Rügen really means to travel to Sassnitz.

Day 6: Visit to the chalk cliffs, approx. 20 km or boat trip

With 500 hectares of beech forest, the moors, meadows and peaceful lakes, Jasmund National Park is a veritable countryside paradise. Rügen's landmarks are its chalk cliffs including the 118 m high Königsstuhl cliff. The cycle ride to the chalk cliffs is short but tough. If you fancy something more relaxing, you can also get to the chalk cliffs by boat (boat trip is not included in price). An old wooden set of 412 steps goes from the beach to the top.

Day 7: Sassnitz – Göhren, approx. 40 km

Once you have left Sassnitz, you soon reach the impressive buildings of Prora after only a few kilometres. Today's section includes two very special highlights: Binz awaits you with a huge bathing area, while Sellin has the longest pier to Rügen. And miles and miles of fine white sand around Göhren. Enjoy your last evening on Rügen with a lovely walk along the beach.

Day 8: A day spent swimming or walking on the Mönchsgut peninsula

Mönchsgut peninsula is surrounded by the Baltic on three sides and is one of Rügen's wonderful secrets. The countryside presents itself it a muted range of greys: hills and heaths, dunes and forests characterise Rügen's south east. Decide spontaneously today what you would like to do: a relaxing day at the beach or long walk through the dunes.

Day 9: Göhren – Greifswald, approx. 50 km + train and ferry trip

When you set off on today's part of the Three-Islands Cycle Tour, you can look forward to a very special highlight: Rasende Roland (Speedy Roland), the historic 19th century steam train takes you to Putbus. After only a few kilometres on your bike, a ferry takes you back to the mainland. The Hanseatic town of Greifswald, steeped in tradition, is waiting for you!

Day 10: Greifswald – Wolgast, approx. 50 km

Today you will be cycling along the Baltic Coast cycle path to Wolgast, the gate to the island of Usedom. You pedal through charming lake, moor and meadow countryside and experience the beauty of the Baltic Coastline – up close! Take the time for a wander through the charming historic quarter of Wolgast, with its timber-framed buildings and brick houses.

Day 11: Wolgast – Bansin, approx. 40 km

You cycle along the Peenestrom straits to get to Usedom, the last island in your Three-Islands Cycle Tour. The path takes you along the so-called Krumminer Wiek to the Baltic spa town of Zinnowitz. From there, you cycle along the forested coastline. On the way there are plenty of opportunities to go for a swim at any of the lovely sandy beaches. When you get to the magnificent Imperial seaside resort - you have reached your destination.

Day 12: Beach day or trip to Heringsdorf, approx. 10 km

The three Imperial resorts of Ahlbeck, Bansin and Heringsdorf still radiate an air of nobility. Wander past the old buildings built according to the classic spa architecture and out onto the pier. You quickly feel like you've been moved back 150 years in time. The pier in Heringsdorf burned down in 1958 but was rebuilt and extended to a proud 508 m. On the last day of your cycling holiday on Hiddensee, Rügen and Usedom, you should definitely go to the beach: the island is known for its fine, white sandy beach.

Day 13: Individual departure or extended stay

After breakfast your cycling holiday on Hiddensee, Rügen and Usedom comes to an end. We would, however, be more than happy to extend your stay on the Baltic Sea.
