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 really hope you'll consider joining us in Stockholm and Copenhagen - both recent additions to my list of all-time favorite places! Your family will enjoy riding through charming landscapes, from the Stockholm archipelago to the Swedish and Danish coastline, farmland, forests and postcard-perfect towns. We'll even access some biking routes by private charter boats and ferries. The cultures of Sweden and Denmark are unique and very enjoyable, and Copenhagen is known to be one of the world's bike-friendliest cities.
