The right number of like-minded travellers to make new friends.
Your dates. Your group. Our expertly-designed itinerary.
Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.
Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.
Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.
Our B&R guides are with you throughout, anticipating needs, translating languages, providing advice and—above all—facilitating fun.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”
“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”
Ride a Pedaller's Paradise
With a deeply ingrained philosophy called hygge—loosely defined as warmth, inclusiveness and solidarity—the Danish are repeatedly rated the happiest people on Earth. And on this exploration from the rural roads of Fyn to the heart of Copenhagen’s cosmopolitan cool, you’ll come to understand why—superb hotels, the culinary phenom that is the New Nordic Cuisine, and heavenly level of friendliness certainly have something to do with it. And then there’s the cycling, perhaps the best in the world thanks to the Danish desire to minimize reliance on the automobile. Roadside paths merge into biking superhighways, while those who do drive observe the utmost respect toward bikers. It is a two-wheeled paradise. Hygge indeed.
