M/S Svanen bike tour – Guided tour

A Danish author, a fjord and the idyllic life in the countryside. Book a guided tour with the ship M/S Svanen and Bikerent.

A boat trip, a guided bicycle tour, a large organic cooperative farm, some history of literature, and a few mouthfuls of life-giving spring water.

These are just a few of the ingredients on a day trip through Fjordlandet. The trip will take you out into Roskilde Fjord for a day full of exercise, windblown hair and a guarantee that by the end of it, you will know the difference between Odsherred and the Peninsula Hornsherred. After a bit of sailing on the fjord, there is a small walk through Møllekrogen, where bikes will be ready for the next step: A bicycle trip starting with the beautiful castle Selsø. From then on, there will be countryside idyll ad libitum: From the streets of Sønderby, through the forest Østskoven (Eastern Forest), and on to the town Østby (Eastern Town), where the author Henrik Pontoppidan (1857-1943) lived with his family for many years. The area was a source of inspiration for the author, so there will be time for a taste of his literature before the bicycle tour continues to the historic, cooperative farm Svanholm. At Svanholm you will receive a guided tour, including organic specialties. The last stop, before the trip back, is the town Gershøj by the fjord, with an old inn, beach and spring water of the healing kind. The bicycle trip is for everyone in fairly good shape, including families with older kids.

Thousands of tufted ducks arrive at Roskilde Fjord every winter. They stay here until spring, when they fly back north to their breeding sites. During the daytime, the ducks will rest at the lake, Kattinge Sø! Go watch them around sunset. An hour after sunset, the ducks will fly in huge numbers towards Roskilde Fjord, where they go to eat molluscs, worms, aquatic insects and some plants. It is a quite amazing site, when they fly out for dinner – the phenomenon is called ‘black moon’ by the locals. Thanks to @nationalparkskjoldungernesland 👍🏻
