A local saying in the very south of Sweden is that the country can be divided into two parts of equal value; the part north of Malmö and the part south of it. Sure enough, the scenic, lush fields do indeed live up to expectations. On this tour you come out on the most fertile and productive fields in all of Scandinavia, where you visit old medieval villages and cosy little farmhouses among the fields.
After pickup in Copenhagen we go across the magnificent Øresund Bridge to head out to the middle of the countryside south of Malmö. There we jump on the bikes and start our leisurely ride between the villages and farmhouses on the quiet country roads. During the tour we visit little cottage stores, a medieval church, and a raspberry farm where we get the chance to pick our own raspberries. In the middle of the tour there is lunch included at an old farmhouse restaurant with organic food from its own fields and animals, which can also be visited.
The tour has a leisurely pace and can be joined by anyone at least moderately fit. It is also possible to use an electric bike for that extra push. Being able to ride a bike is a must in any case. The total length is 14 km, which are cycled in 4-5 sections with a break in between. A bottle of water is provided to all participants.
