Idyllic Islands, Castles & Countryside from Sweden to Denmark

Sweden and Denmark share a connection. Clean cities uniquely balanced by neoclassic and contemporary architecture. And pristine summer homes sitting quietly among endless islands and amid the seemingly ever-present Nordic summer sun. The locals are charming, happy, enviously good-looking - and they appreciate your love for the bike. The New Nordic cuisine is seasonal, sustainable, innovative and, quite simply, delicious. Two Scandinavian countries connected by a simple appreciation for nature, design, food, culture and life.

Navigating Bike Routes & Bike Paths

Follow that runestone! The Swedes and the Danes are famous for their love of bikes. And that love of bikes has created an amazing labyrinth of bike paths and routes that extend throughout each country, linking quaint villages and big cities alike. Many of the routes we use on this trip are the equivalent of scenic byways, and some follow roads and paths with little or no signage. Navigating these intricate bike routes may require more attention to the directions than you might expect; be prepared to make a few more stops along the way to ensure you're on the right track.

Guest Reviews About This Trip

I'm so excited to introduce you to these two wonderful countries - both recent additions to my list of all-time favorite places. On this trip you'll enjoy truly exceptional bicycling through romantic and charming landscapes, from the Stockholm archipelago (made up of thousands of islands) and the Swedish and Danish coastline to farmland, forests and urban areas. We'll even access some of our bike rides by private charter boats and ferries. The cultures of Sweden and Denmark are unique and very enjoyable, with uncommon juxtapositions reflected in their cuisine and aesthetic sensibilities. And Copenhagen is known to be one of the most bike-friendly cities in the world!
