Slip into the cycling trousers and pump up the bike for one of Denmark’s longer and scenic cycling routes - the 820 kilometre of the Baltic Sea Route!
If you want to explore the cycling route N8 - also known as the Baltic Sea Route, the Sønderborg area and the holiday-island Als is a good place to begin.
The Baltic Sea Route leads you on a route shaped like the figure eight starting at Sønderborg on the holiday island Als or at the ferry from Fynshav to Ærø.
During your bicycle tour, you will visit the islands of Ærø, Funen, Langeland, Lolland, Falster and Møn, before the route leads you alongside the coast of southern Sealand to Korsør and the Storebælt Bridge.
The Storebælt Bridge is crossed to Nyborg by train. From Nyborg you continue by bike alongside the west coast of Funen to the old bridge crossing Lillebælt at Middelfart from here the route leads you south to Southern Jutland crossing down to the inlet Flensborg Fjord that you follow back to the Sønderborg area.
VisitSønderjylland offers cycling packages for the 140 kilometres of the N8-route leading through Southern Jutland, the island Ærø and up longside the west coast of Funen.
The Baltic Sea Route leads you on a 947,8 kilometre route shaped like the figure-eight. Extracting the kilometres travelled by ferry and train the route ends up at 820 kilometres by bike.
