If Denmark is the world’s best country for bikes (as many people believe), then this enticing corner of Zealand, its largest island, is paradise on earth for a holiday on two wheels. Expect to find gorgeous villages of thatched-roof cottages, castles of fairy-tale wonder, and expanses of white sand backed by dunes dotted with brightly coloured beach huts, all under huge, wide-open skies.
If all this weren’t enough, you stay in cosy, hospitable hotels located on, or very near the coast, and are treated to excellent regional cuisine featuring, as you would expect, the freshest of fish and seafood.
The well-signed routes are largely on the flat, and not overly long, so take your time – call in at artisan producers of chocolate and schnapps, linger over a picnic of open crab sandwiches in the manicured grounds of one of the royal castles, enjoy a dip in the sea, and drink in the sweeping views along the coast and out to sea.
