Stockholm to Copenhagen Family Breakaway Bike Tour

Idyllic Islands, Castles & Countryside from Sweden to Denmark

  • Pedal easygoing terrain on a bike-friendly mix of country lanes, coastal roads and cycling paths—some of the best urban biking landscapes on the planet
  • Be awed by the stunning land and seascape of the Stockholm archipelago, bathed in the ethereal sparkle of the midnight sun
  • Spin past endless red-and-white Swedish cottages set along crystal clear harbors and waterways
  • Indulge in the latest culinary trends with the locavore "Nordic Cuisine Manifesto" guiding innovation and fresh delicious cuisine 
  • Marvel at magnificent castles, royal palaces and medieval landmarks set against the pristine beauty of the Baltic sea

Sweden and Denmark share connections. Pristine cities and endless islands basking in the blissful Nordic summer sun. New Nordic cuisine is innovative and delicious. The locals are charming, happy, enviably good-looking—and they share your family's love for the bike. Two countries connected by a simple appreciation of nature, food, culture and life.

Access to the Best Rides

This trip is unique in that we stay right in the heart of two stunning (and bustling) cities—Stockholm and Copenhagen. To access the very best biking routes, we'll often bypass busy roads and traffic by starting and ending our bike rides with strategic shuttles via bus, van, boat and train. Between these two cities, we stay at quirky and casual Bomans in the seaside town of Trosa, Sweden, where tranquil countryside riding is right at our doorstep.

Why Travel with Backroads in Sweden and Denmark

See Copenhagen from the Inside

To fully appreciate Denmark's famous capital, with its rich and nuanced history, you need someone who can share its pleasures from an insiders' perspective. That's what you'll get from our old friend Christian, who shares fascinating glimpses of the past alongside the latest cultural hotspots as you explore this beautiful city of canals.

Everyone at Their Own Pace

We design and support our Sweden and Denmark trips to suit mixed abilities and varied interests—so you can set your own pace, then change things up as the day unfolds. And all guests are free to do the same, traveling together or apart, with no one cramping anyone else's style. Which sounds easy in theory, but it's hard to pull off. Here's more on how we do it.

More Leaders to Support You

On our Sweden and Denmark trips we have an extra leader supporting you along the road—for a total of three, compared to the industry standard two. So we can be in more places at once, giving personal attention to guests traveling at their own pace. Here's more on our Trip Leaders.

Kids Who Aren't Kids Anymore

Only Backroads offers active trips in Sweden and Denmark designed for families with older teens and 20-somethings. Our Family Breakaway trips are aimed at you and the amazingly grownup members of your clan—whether they're almost high school grads, already in college or further along. Find out more in this blog post.

The Best Leaders in Sweden and Denmark

Backroads has the best-qualified people to lead your trip in Sweden and Denmark, and our guests back that up, rating our Trip Leaders an average of 9.75 out of 10 for all-around quality of performance. Get the facts (and no fluff) on how we recruit and develop the very best people for your trip.

A Second Van When You Need It

Backroads is the only active travel company providing two support vans in Sweden and Denmark—because we know it's essential to ensure a truly great travel experience. It doubles our ability to be there when you need us to offer hydration, lighten your load or give you a lift if it's time to take a break. Read more on why two vans make all the difference.

A Variety of Routes Each Day

In Sweden and Denmark you head off each morning after choosing among several expertly designed routes—all with detailed directions, mileage and shuttle options. Unlike trips with one fixed daily route (or worse, one guide that everyone's obliged to follow), you're free to enjoy the best of the region at your pace, stopping wherever you want to explore further.

Great Bikes Included (or Upgrade)

Choose a Backroads Custom Titanium or Custom Electric Assist bike—both are included in your trip price. Maybe a Specialized carbon-fiber pro model is more your speed or go for double fun on a tandem. Our fleet is the best in active travel, so you don't have to roll the dice on this vital trip component. Learn why our titanium bikes are ideal for most riders. See the bike options for this trip.

Your Trip Will Run. Period.

Under our Book with Confidence policy, your Backroads trip will run even for a single family of three or four people, subject to a nominal extra fee. Or transfer to another trip, and we'll give you a credit. It's all part of our trademark commitment to treating guests with integrity, transparency and total accountability. Read all the details.

We've Set the Standard

For nearly four decades we've worked to earn and maintain our right to call Backroads the world's #1 active travel company. In pursuing that vision on behalf of our guests, we believe we've set the standard for our industry—captured in the Backroads Quality Guide, which clearly sets out the benchmarks of excellence, choice and support that we live by
