Welcome to the island of Funen! Funen – Danish: Fyn– Denmark´s third largest island – has everything that cyclists desire. On our cycling holidays on Funen you will discover relaxed towns and villages, romantic castles and impressive manor houses. Because of its rich flora and fauna, the island is also called Denmark´s Garden. While the north is rather flat, the south is more hilly and around Fåborg you find an area that´s called the Funen Alps. Funen is full of interesting sights worth to be seen, such as settlements of the stone age and over 120 castles and manor houses – more than in any other part of Denmark. One of the highlights on our cycling holidays on Funen is Castle Egeskov which belongs to Europe´s most beautiful water castles. Denmark´s most famous son, the writer Hans Christian Andersen who is known for his amazing fairytales was born in Odense. With its desert beaches and the smooth weather conditions, Funen belongs to the so-called Danish south sea.
