Description

Meet your guide in central Copenhagen on your own bike or, if you need to hire a bike (additional cost), arrive 30 minutes in advance to organise the rental.

Your tour largely follows cycle paths, so you’ll be mostly away from traffic, and covers 12–15 miles (20–25 kilometres).

Pass the waterfront Copenhagen Mall (Fisketorvet) before crossing a bridge to the Islands Brygge area. Then, trace picturesque waterside paths into the quaint Nokken allotment district.

Situated by the water, this charming enclave is composed of allotment gardens and quirky, hand-built huts and houses. Savour the relaxed atmosphere and learn about Nokken’s roots as a fishing community.

Break for coffee (own expense) at the Sønderbro Haveforening allotment area, and enjoy a fun ride on Denmark’s only Cuban bicycle.

Resuming your tour, ride by Sluseholmen, one of Copenhagen’s upscale residential neighbourhoods. Admire the innovative canal-side townhouses and continue around the flower-filled Frem and Musikbyen allotment quarters into more tucked-away areas – some unknown to many Copenhageners.

After around 4 hours of exploring, arrive back at the start point, where your tour ends.

A Copenhagen insight
for jorgen’s tour (See the Unknown Copenhagen by Bike )
If tours of historic and touristy "must-sees" don't interest you then this is the tour for you! Join Jorgen on two wheels and you will see a side of Copenhagen you would never discover by yourself. To say it's off the beaten track is something of an understatement. Jorgen is a wonderful host who will literally welcome you into his home and his way of life. It is a fascinating few hours exposed to an alternative way of life. You won't regret stepping off the well-trodden tourist trail.
Very nice and interesting tour

Jorgen was a great host in a tour that shows a part of the city that will never see as normal tourists. I really enjoyed and recommend this tour.
