The Scandi Explorer

Oslo – Gothenburg – Copenhagen – Aarhus – Frederikshavn – Oslo (minus the ferry journeys it’s about 1110km cycling): This is a great ‘little’ route that passes many great places to stop and explore. It’s also very flat and easy to cycle. You can cut it short and take a ferry back to Oslo from Copenhagen but it’s nice to power up the Danish coast on cycle lanes and jump on a cheaper ferry at Frederikshavn.
