Denmark is ideal for cyclists and the very flat West Coast in particular.
A bicycle tour is a wonderful way to experience the Wadden Sea National Park: The wind, the weather, the seasons, the light, the quiet that only makes the song of birds more amazing ... both if you are alone, if you are more - and also if you are a couple who want a sustainable honeymoon ♥ The wedding picture shows newlyweds Zhenia from Russia and Stefan from Germany with bridal bouquet and one of our bikes ♥.
Cycling is a great way to get out and about in the Wadden Sea National Park. From the hostel in Ribe you go to Kammerslusen (Ribe Waterway Lock), along the Ribe Dike and the Wadden Sea, you follow the North Sea Cycle Route to Mandø Ebbevej and the Wadden Sea Centre. Continue along the Ribe marshland and back to Ribe. Approx. 25 km.
