Bikeholiday in Denmark
We joined my friends’ trip in Hundested. There we stayed in Hundested Kro Hotel, the small hotel where you gave us the bikes. The hotel needs some refurbishing. A bit expensive for the spanish standards, but it was ok. The breakfast was good.
In the rest of the trip we stayed in Danhotels. In Tisvildeleje, it was the Sankt Helene Holiday Center. They have cute apartments, some with kitchen included. In Helsingor it was again the Danhostel Helsingor (a bit older that Sankt Helen and the room were less cute, but good enough), as in Copenhagen, the Danhostel Copenhagen Amager. This one was 4 or 5 km from the city center, but it was very easy to bike there. It had very nice and modern common areas.
In these Danhostels you can always choose with or without private bathroom (we always chose with) and they give you the bedsheets and towels when you check in. You have to make your own beds and remove the bedsheets when you check out. They were very convenient and the breakfast were always very good.
To bike in Denmark was very great, the 47 route is well marked, nice and easy to follow.
Bike routes we recommend
Route 47 Gilleleje - Helsingør (25 km)
Bike route 47 runs all the way along the coast from Elsinore to Hundested with Gilleleje located almost in the middle. The entire stretch is about 70 km, but can be divided into several small different trips. The route is a mixture of rides on bike paths along the water and through forests but also driving on roads with traffic must be expected. The route is well signposted.
Based in Gilleleje, you can make some wonderful day trips depending on how far you want to go. The section Gilleleje – Helsingør is approx. 25 km and relatively flat. Here you cycle along the coast most of the way and end through the most beautiful nature in the forest before ending up in Elsinore. If you do not want to cycle back, you can take the train back. It is free to bring bikes in our local trains. We also recommend this trip for families with children.
From Elsinore you have the opportunity to take the bikes to Sweden, which also offers many beautiful bike routes.
If you do not want to go that far, you can just cycle to Hornbæk. It is approx. 12 km and a mixture of driving on paths and roads (about 2 km). By the road it is possible for children to cycle at the sidewalk.
