Fyn - Family tour
8 days / 7 nights - Approx. 70/140 kms cycling
In the heart of Denmark you find Fyn: an adventure for children and adults. We all know about Hans Christian Andersen's fairytales, and around the island there are a lot of other exciting fairytales waiting to be discovered. The right way to discover it is by bicycle - here you roll quietly through the landscape, and here is plenty of time with the family.
This tour offers relative short day trips so everyone can join. Even short child legs can do 20-25 km of cycling when you have all day - and if the legs can't reach all the way down to the pedals yet, of course we offer bike trailer rental.
City ambience, quiet roads, beautiful scenery, ferries, ice cream stalls, beaches and the whole family on a trip together. What are you waiting for !? :-)

Arrive on your own to Odense and prepare for a relaxing and exiting tour. If you have booked a rental bike you will find it at the hotel. There are plenty of attractions for children – and their parents – in Odense. Tonight you stay in Odense.
Odense – Brobyværk (approx. 25 kms)
Odense is the capital of Fyn – and also well known as the birthplace of author Hans Christian Andersen. It is worth to have a stroll around the city. From urban environment out into rural landscape on minor roads, starting to experience the idyllic scenery of Denmark’s garden. Today you end up in Brobyværk – a charming village where the Odense Å (Odense river) runs through.
Brobyværk – Faaborg (approx. 20 kms)
Heading south towards the “Alps of Fyn” todays route gives you both very nice looks over the water and also comfortable challenges in the gently hilled landscape. You pass small villages and century old churches and approaching you destination – the old harbour town of Faaborg – you start overlooking the archipelago of south Fyn, where you might spot a local ferry or the sail of an old wooden ship. Faaborg itself offers small streets to stroll and old houses to create a very specific atmosphere.
Faaborg – Ærø (Aeroe) – Svendborg (approx. 25 kms)
Today it’s your turn to literally experience the archipelago: you start of with the ferry from Faaborg to the island of Ærø (Aeroe). The trip lasts one hour and you can enjoy the beautiful scenery while arriving “the proper way” to a real island: by boat. Landing harbour on Ærø is Søby (Soeby) from where you follow small roads to the fascinating town of Ærøskøbing (Aeroeskoebing). Old houses and cobble stoned streets awaits you – along with an interesting history. Remember your camera! From Ærøskøbing you take another ferry back to Fyn and arrives at Svendborg, where you stay 2 nights. An alternative to the ferries and the visit to Ærø is to bike directly from Faaborg to Svendborg – approx. the same distance, but saving the time and costs of the ferries.
Svendborg is the maritime centre of Fyn. Just next to the quay of the ferry from Ærø is “Træskibsbroen” (the wooden ships bridge), where you can be lucky to see a very fine collection of old wooden ships. The city itself offers shopping, attractions, restaurants – and for the children especially Naturama is worth a visit. You might also take a daytrip in the surroundings – and maybe visit the castle Egeskov, hosting a fine collection of old cars and aeroplanes.
Svendborg – Odense by train (approx. 69 kms)
From Svendborg we suggest you take the local train back to Odense. The ride lasts 40-45 minutes and runs through the beautiful landscape of Southern Fyn. You can of course also choose to take the bus – or even bike: there is a good local route with a distance of approx. 69 kms.
Back in Odense you can enjoy the city and stroll around the cosy centre.
A full day to shop, visit attractions, sit on cafés – or maybe take the bus to Kerteminde for a visit at the Fjord & Bælt -center (“Fiord and Belt Centre”) – or maybe have an ice cream at the harbour – before you head back for Odense, enjoying even more beautiful scenery, timbered houses and lovely gardens on the way.
Time to travel home – or maybe to extend your holiday with a day or two extra in Odense – or maybe in Copenhagen.
