Multi-toilets, nature playgrounds, barbecue areas and water points have been provided along the way. For anyone wanting to spend a night under the stars, shelters and huts are available.

The best daytrips on Funen and the islands

Regional route 41+42 - Kerteminde (47,57 km)
The peninsula of Hindsholm north of Kerteminde is one of Denmark’s most picturesque areas. The only downside is a road with some traffic, so remember to bring a helmet.
The route is about 57 kilometres long and only a couple of kilometres are on unpaved roads.Learn more...
Regional route 45 - Odense–Kerteminde (24,16 km)
This route is relatively short with only 24 paved kilometres, but there is much to see along the way. No need to bring bicycles as these can be rented in Kerteminde.
Set aside a few hours to see the highlights of Kerteminde before venturing out onto the route. The harbour is atmospheric. Visit the Johannes Larsen Museum which is housed in the Funen painter’s home on Møllebakken.
Regional route 55 - Odense-Svendborg (60,13 km)
Sailing, workhouse, fairy-tale castle, Ice Age, open-air museum, giraffes... This family-friendly route offers many and very different experiences.
The hill down towards Svendborg Sound has been the site of a beautiful maritime town since the 13th century. Take time to have a look around before starting the route. Maybe a trip on the water if the youngest members of the family have sufficiently strong sea legs?Learn more...
North Langeland – Regional route 80+81 (71,76 km)
Rudkøbing-Lohals-Spodsbjerg is a 72-kilometre-long scenic circular route of which 67 kilometres are paved roads. The remaining five are good gravel roads. The route starts in the largest town on Langeland. Rudkøbing Pharmacy is particularly famous: This is HC Ørsted’s birthplace. Today it is a very well-preserved museum offering a wealth of jars with odd medicines for visitors to shiver at.
