Your cycling tour in Denmark

On this island-hopping tour you will be cycling to beautiful beaches, breathta­king hills with stunning views and charming villages with cosy cafés.
The ferry ride to Ærø gives you intriguing glimpses of small islands inhabitated by few people – and some of them only by grazing cattle.
Welcome to an amazing bike holiday on Funen and Ærø!

Day 1 : Arrival in Odense

Odense is the capital of Funen and also the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen. We recommend an early arrival, as this cultural and historic town has a lot to offer. You can discover the long history of the town during an evening stroll, and also check out the local gastronomy scene

Day 2 : Odense - Faabord | 55 km

You will quickly leave the hustle and bustle of the town behind you and immerse yourself in a real nature paradise. After just a few kilometres, you will discover why Funen is known as Denmark’s garden. The often untouched landscape will enchant you, and many places along the way are suitable for a picnic. You´ll cycle through the middle of the island. Brobyværk was founded already in the Viking area and is an excellent place to stop for lunch. The untouched moraine landscape in the ´Svanninge Bakker´ national park is especially attractive. Fans of architecture will be impressed by the many old manors and churches you will pass on your route. First and foremost is the medieval Svanninge church, whose steeple is visible from a distance. Today’s goal is Faaborg. The old harbour town is best discovered on a stroll through the small streets. For culture enthusiasts, it is worth visiting the Faaborg art museum.

Day 3 : Faaborg - Ærø - Svendborg | 25 km

A special experience awaits you today. During your tour, you will discover Ærø island. A ferry ride in the morning will bring you from Faaborg to Søby. You can see the best of the island on a short bicycle tour eastward. You should definitely take some time to explore Ærøskøbing, the fascinating and historical capital of the island. From Ærøskøbing you will take the ferry back to Funen Island and Svendborg where you will spend the night.

Day 4 : Loop around Svenborg | 20 or50 km

Today you will be spoilt for choice. Svendborg is the maritime centre of Funen Island. Here you will have many options for shopping, tourist attractions, restaurants and bars. Use today for a little rest and relaxation or to stroll around. There are also many options on the bike: Skarø and Drejø islands offer a unique nature experience and are easy to reach from Svendborg by ferry (ticket not included; price approx. 25 € per person; payable on site). Alternatively, you can visit Tåsinge island with the unmissable Valdemar’s castle. The sportive cyclers can also combine this with exploring the island of Langeland. Don’t forget to bring along your bathing suit. Whatever you choose, you definitely won’t be bored today.

Day 5 : Svendborg - Nyborg | 55 km

Today’s route is very varied. A large part of it leads along the coastline, but you will also ride inland now and again. Along the way you will pass by many old castles and manors. There will be plenty of opportunities to take a quick dip as well. The strait between the danish island Funen in the West and Zealand in the East is called the Great Belt. In Nyborg, you will find the impressive Great Belt Fixed Link which is still one of the longest suspension bridges in the world. Nyborg castle is also worth a visit.

Day 6 : Nyborg - Odense | 50 km

Following the coast all the way, you will soon reach the picturesque harbour town of Kerteminde. Visit the Fjord & Belt Museum to find out about the sea and its inhabitants. The many restaurants along the harbour are a great choice for a midday pause. The last leg of your journey will bring you back to Odense, the start of your bicycle tour on Funen. Take some time for another evening stroll around town or visit the newly renovated birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen.
