On our holiday in Denmark, we explore the Danish South Sea and Baltic Sea islands by bike and sailing ship. The fairy-tale world of Hans Christian Andersen enchants with its rolling hills, colourful houses, beautiful beaches and exciting cities. Idyllic harbours, traditional towns and countless islands wait to be explored!
“Our South Sea” is the name fondly given by the Danes to this enchanting mix of endless sandy beaches, brilliantly white chalk cliffs, countless islands and small harbour towns with their colourful thatched houses. The Danish South Sea refers to the sea south of Funen including Ærø, Langeland and the many islands that lie in between. In Danish, the area is more commonly called the South Funen Archipelago. When looking at a nautical chart of the Danish South Sea it is easy to see how diverse the region is. Small idyllic islands alternate with minor towns while areas of total seclusion contrast with places bustling with sailors and tourists.
The South Funen Archipelago is one of the best places for sailing trips and bike holidays in Denmark thanks to its protected location, numerous harbours that all lie in a fair proximity to one another as well as the well-developed infrastructure in the region. Discover this beautiful world with us in a unique way by sailing ship and bike on our "Sail & Bike Danish South Funen and Baltic Sea" tour. The capital Køge (Copenhagen) one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Denmark, the island of Ærø and the bird sanctuary on Stavens Fjord are among the top attractions on our tour and must-see places for anyone exploring the Danish coast.
The Baltic Sea, which gets its name from the Latin Mare Balticum, is an inland sea in Europe and considered the largest brackish water sea in the world. The gentle rolling hills, stunning beaches and dramatic light are just a few aspects that make the Baltic Sea coastline one of the best places to visit for a nature-filled holiday. An incredible opportunity for trigger-happy photographers. Windmills and thatched farmhouses, the 128-meter-high chalk cliffs on the island of Møn as well as the royal city Roskilde on the winding fjord are only some of the top things to see on our Islandhopping trip.
Despite Denmark’s location on two seas, the North and Baltic Sea, the water temperatures are fairly balanced. The average water temperature in the North Sea is 16°C (61°F) during July, while to the east of Zealand, water temperatures are marginally higher at 18°C (64°F). During the day, air temperatures generally climb over 20°C (68°F), while night time temperatures average around 13°C (55°F). As the influence of the Gulf Stream and the North Atlantic Current reduce during the winter, temperatures fall to freezing around the country. Water temperatures on the coasts vary between 3°C (37°F) during the winter and 17°C (62°F) during the summer.
The best time to visit Denmark for a cycling holiday is between May and September. During this time, the weather is at a sweet spot with pleasant temperatures ranging between 16°C (61°F) and 25°C (77°F) suitable for even the most demanding cycling tours.
The summer months from June to August are the best time to enjoy a beach holiday with temperatures often climbing above 25°C (77°F). If water temperatures of around 17°C (62°F) sound like the perfect, refreshing summer swim to you, then Denmark is the ideal place to visit for the summer!
