Best of Northern Zealand & Helsingborg

At Freewheel Holidays we’re home to a diverse range of cycling holidays to some of your favourite European destinations.

From the rolling hills of France to the wide-open plains of Spain, there’s something to be found for every cycling enthusiast. We’ve even got some great cycling holidays for families, too.

But if you’re after something a little different, or want to explore a totally new location you never considered before, why not take a look at our Best of Northern Zealand & Helsingborg cycling tour?

Here are a few things you might want to know:

A Danish History Delight

We call this tour The Best of Northern Zealand & Helsingborg for a reason. The Danish island of Zealand represents all the best parts of Denmark’s history and culture.

Still home to some of the world’s most stunning castles, Denmark’s lineage of Danish royalty really is a must-see for history buffs.

You’ll get to cycle past castles like Kronborg Castle, famed for its depiction in William Shakespeare’s seminal play Hamlet.

Or Frederiksborg Castle, surrounded by sparkling blue waters and backed by miles of beautiful green foliage, much of which has been sculpted into the most sensational garden displays.

Danish Cuisine and Hospitality

If you opt for our Best of Northern Zealand & Helsingborg cycling tour, you’ll be treated to some superior rooms in divine hotels, giving you the chance to experience true Danish hospitality.

Recognised by many as “the happiest country in the world” you may even learn a thing or two on how to boost your mood during your stay!

But one thing everybody must try before they leave Denmark is some traditional Danish cooking.

For example, Smørrebrød - arguably the most famous of all Danish dishes - is a simple yet elegant dish comprising of rye bread topped with a whole host of different Danish bites. Including, but not limited to, pickled herring, roast beef, locally-sourced shrimps, and more.

For those of you with a real sweet tooth, you can’t afford to miss out on some freshly-baked Danish pastries from a traditional bakery. Some of the finest desserts in the world.

But this is barely scratching the surface. The only way to see all the delicious bites available in Denmark is to visit for yourself!

Copenhagen - The Bike Capital of the World

If you’ve ever seen any video footage of Copenhagen on the news, or if you’ve been lucky enough to visit the iconic city already, you’ll know just how much of a cycling-centric location it truly is.

In fact, during the morning rush hour, around 3 in 5 workers commute via cycling, rather than driving or using public transportation.

This is a great move on the part of combating climate change. But it’s also more of a logistical move, too.

Much of the ground within Copenhagen is relatively flat, making for easy riding. Add to this the fact that the government has helped turn the city into arguably the most cycling-friendly location on the planet and there’s little argument that you won’t feel right at home on two wheels in Copenhagen.
