Cycling tours on Zealand

© Østdansk Tourism

A warm welcome to our cycle tours on Zealand! The island of Zealand - Sjælland in Danish - is Denmark's largest island in the Baltic Sea. It offers you an eclectic mix of varied landscapes, lively towns, and memories of a great past. On our cycle tours on Zealand, you will experience a relaxed cycling experience thanks to the mostly flat to slightly hilly cycle paths.

The north of the island is home to beautiful beaches, typical fishing villages, and magnificent castles. The Frederiksborg Slot in Hillerød and the Kronberg Castle in the lively port city of Helsingør, the home of Shakespeare's Hamlet, are well worth a visit.
The center of the island is home to the cathedral town of Roskilde, which boasts an excellent Viking ship museum. Nearby Lejre is of great archaeological importance and brings history to life in an experimental way at Sagnlandet Lejre.
The south of Zealand is known for medieval Køge and the impressive chalk cliffs of Stevns Klint. Copenhagen - Denmark's capital - is of course a must on our cycle tours on Zealand. The cosmopolitan and bike-friendly city on the Øresund inspires with a mixture of great sights and a special flair.
