MINNEAPOLIS— Amidst white sandy beaches, enchanting forests, peculiar islands and charming villages, Borton Overseas takes travelers on an adventurous bike ride along Jutland, Denmark’s West Coast. Travelers will arrive in Copenhagen before being transferred to South Jutland, where the journey begins in this busy commercial center – the Western trade route from Scandinavia ended here – for a chance to learn about the history of this booming region. Early in the trip, cyclists visit cities including Tøndermarsken and Tøndermarsken to explore the culture and learn about some of Denmark’s most fascinating history. The islands of Rømø and Mandø offer a unique opportunity to experience fascinating nature and gorgeous sandy beaches accessed by dykes that often flood daily due to the tide – a truly adventurous experience! The old historic town of Ribe is up next, offering a look into Viking history in Denmark’s oldest town.

This very special island has two cities full of charm, unique sights and storied histories. Travelers would be remiss not to enjoy the incredible beaches at Vejers, Grærup and Børsmose, which are surrounded by beautiful landscapes and dotted with summer homes. Adventure continues as cyclists continue on the Holmslands Klit – the narrow piece of land between Ringkøbing Fjord and the North Sea – to the fishing town of Hvide Sande. The journey nears its end in the middle of the West Coast as travelers take in stunning views surrounded by fjords and the North Sea, just before finishing the tour along the bays of Nissum Bredning and Venø Bugt to Struer.
