The accommodations were comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was hearty, healthy and generous — we feasted on rye bread, croissants, hard and soft cheeses, eggs, ham, fresh fruit, fresh vegetables. sausage, yogurt, juice, coffee…every day began with an amazing buffet.
Riding the ferries between islands was fun and an effective way to appreciate the archipelago that makes up Funen. We saw some magnificent sailing ships hailing from Germany, Netherlands, Sweden and of course Denmark. People were warm and friendly.
Our luggage was Read More transported as promised and delivered promptly to our hotel. That’s a big bonus when you’re wanting to shower before dinner. The routes were an appropriate length — leisurely completed in 4-6 hours with time to spare for a picnic lunch or visiting a local attraction.
This was our sixth self-guided tour with TripSite. As with previous tours, we like to use our mobile phones for real-time GPS guidance. We downloaded the BikeGPX tracks provided by the vendor. In several cases, we discovered that the tracks did not correspond to reality. The preprogrammed routes are extremely useful. But only if they are accurate. One time we were directed across a soft, sandy beach that was not appropriate for cycling; another time we were directed to ride across a golf course fairway where clearly no bike path existed. And another day we just disregarded the suggested route because we weren’t provided with enough time and information to catch the ferry.
And that brings to mind another item that might benefit from attention: the e-bikes we were assigned had slick tires and a heavy frame. They were great for cycling on asphalt or packed gravel. They carried our loaded panniers easily. But some portions of the route took us out on sandy spits. Or on single track through overgrown pastures. We thought it would have been better to plan the route keeping in mind the bike’s capabilities.
We give this trip a four-star rating because of the bike-track issues. If the bike tracks are fixed we would enthusiastically rate this trip a five-star experience.
Denmark is spectacularly beautiful. Cities and rural areas are clean and well-cared for. The citizens have a commitment to green and sustainable energy. We are looking forward to returning someday.
