Day 1 ARRIVAL SVENDBORG Take a stroll in the lively and charming city Svendborg, the "capital" of South Funen with old maritime traditions. If you have the time you should go on an excursion to Thuroe with excellent opportunities for a swim or a game of mini golf.
Day 2 SVENDBORG - FAABORG (24 km) The Cycling Route no. 8 along the sea between Svendborg and Fåborg is the most idyllic route in all of Funen. It shows South Funen from its most beautiful side and offers splendid views of the archipelago. The gently undulating terrain leads you past manor houses and numerous romantic half-timbered houses and small villages.
Day 3 FAABORG - ÆRO - SVENDBORG (39 km) Sail & Bike
From Faaborg you go by the ferry to Aeroe. It is possible to see most of the island in one day. Charming half-timbered houses in many colours, cobblestone streets and a truly unique maritime spirit characterises this charming island in the middle of the South Funen archipelago. Weather permitting, take your bikes along the beach to the small picturesque beach houses. At Aeroe you can choose between different routes and return to Svendborg by ferry.
Day 4 TASINGE - LANGELAND - SVENDBORG (15-45 km) Today's trip takes you across the Svendborgsund Bridge to Taasinge Island. Cycle to Vindeby and along the coast to the maritime village Troense and continue to Valdemar's Castle that features beautiful rooms, a Hunting and Trophy Museum and a Boat Museum. If you feel like it, the castle also has a great mini golf course. Or you may just enjoy the view, the calmness and atmosphere here and take a break.
Valdemar's Castle is only 7,5 km from Svendborg and you may continue across the very small island Sioe and then further to the greater island Langeland. You arrive in Rudkøbing and may choose between several routes on the island. Take a swim or a break. On the way back to Svendborg you may choose another route and visit Landet Kirkegaard (cemetary) and see the memorial tombs of the lovers Elvira Madigan and Sixten Sparre, an everlasting love story. And perhaps finish the day a bit uphill to Bregninge where you have a magnificient view of the archipelago from the bell tower of the church. If you include Langeland, the route will be approx. 41 kms + individual cycling at Langeland.
Day 5 SVENDBORG DEPARTURE A memorable tour ends after breakfast in the hotel.
You may combine this tour with our 8-day roundtrip in Funen and experience more of this charming island, or with our tour that follows in the steps of the famous Danish poet Hans Christian Andersen and gives you the best of Copenhagen, Zealand and Funen in 8 or 10 days. Or perhaps spend a couple of days in Odense or Copenhagen?
