This is a page about using your bike to investigate the wonderful landscape around Kattegatt in Scandinavia. I tried 2009 travelling with a bike through Halland and Skane in West Sweden and then went with the Ferry over to Helsingor. After some biking in Sealand I crossed this island for continuing to Nort Juthland and participated in the North Jutland race. Helsingor is known for its old fortress Kronborg(Crown fortress) where the Hamlet drama, by Shakespeare, unfolds.
In this journey I give you some pictures on the way and also tips or suggestions on where to get food, rest for the night, what Ikind of equipment you need for this trip and where you are able to find free maps over Denmark. On the way from Gothenburg I am passing Kungsbacka, Varberg, Falkenberg, Halmstad and Hallandsaasen(halland ridge) before I reach Helsingborg.
I also did a trip from Copenhagen 2014 on another route over the Hallandsaasen(halland ridge). I show you some pictures here from the road along the sea through Skane and Halland.
Along the way you've got plenty of nice beaches, parks and views you'll have to discover once in your lifetime. Like bakken, Mellbystrand(Mellvillage beach), Aalborg, the Limfjord and similar. The advantages with taking the bike is that you often see places and meet people you don't see or meet by car.
Looks like the bikeferry suddenly are getting in trouble with the swedish and danish transport board do not agree on the rules for traffic with passengers in boat. Swedish board says it is not in order to ship more the 12 while danish say 36. This makes the route to expensive to run.
The bike ferry between Denmark and Sweden has started. The 1:st of June the ferry started. You are now able to take the trip from Dragoer to Malmoe for an 1 hour trip below the oeresunds bridge. With or without bike. Looks like we'll get a new connections between Malmoe and Copenhagen this summer. This is about reintroducing the old ferry between Limhamn in Malmoe and Dragoer south for copenhagen. The municipal of Dragoer has accepted the connection. However, they still got some questions about passport and these things to passing the border between Sweden and Denmark. The price for the tour will be 15€ single trip and 30€ return. Then you are allowed to bring a bicykle with two bicykle bags. Check it out here>>>
