The best long routes


Denmark was one of the first countries in the world to set up a linked, national cycle route network. When the route network was set up in 1993, it consisted of 10 routes.

In 2002, the Limfjord Route was added as the last national cycle route.

These 11 routes have a total length of more than 4,000 kilometres.

Here we present some of the best routes in Denmark.

Østersøruten - Baltic Sea Route - National Route 8 (947,77 km)

Around Bornholm - National Route 10 (123,07 km)

Taking a cycle ride around this rocky and picturesque island is something that has to be experienced at least once in a lifetime. The 105 kilometres can be done in one day, but why not divide the trip into four days and experience the island and its round churches, rocks and unique scenery more fully? The bicycle is the best place from which to view all of the highlights of the island.

North Sea Cycle Route (562,52 km)

No other national route in Denmark contains contrasts as great as the West Coast Route. To the south, rich, flat marshland. To the north, steep and dramatic sand dunes. The West Coast Route is the story of man and sea. A 560-kilometre-long story about life on nature's terms.


Approx. 70% of the route is paved, but long sections consist of sand and gravel tracks. We recommend solid tyres.


The West Coast Route forms part of the European EuroVelo Route no. 12 which is part of the North Sea Cycle Route running from Scotland to Norway. The route is the longest cycle route in the world and runs through seven countries. Find out much more about the North Sea Cycle Route at
