Fjordstien Route 40 | Bicycle and hiking path
Fjordstien is a bicycle and hiking path along Roskilde Fjord and Isefjord. It gives you the possibility to experience the landscape, the nature and the culture of the fjord and its history.
Just a good hour's train ride from Copenhagen are Roskilde Fjord and Isefjord, which together form a unique fjord landscape. In many places, you get pretty close to the fjord. Quiet, idyllic and authentic.
The fjord path allows cyclists and hikers to journey through a unique landscape in northwestern Sealand.
A walk on the trail is an encounter with geology, history, culture and nature. In many places, you get pretty close to the fjord, and the path is traffic-safe.
Most of the path is paved, but you will also drive on fields or forest roads. Fjordstien, marked as route 40, connects Hundested-Frederiksværk-Frederikssund-Roskilde-Holbæk-Kongsøre-Rørvig, a total of approximately 275 kilometres.
Take the route in some chunks, e.g. in two stages during a summer weekend and then return one late summer day and take another stage.
Stay en route to a hotel or in a cabin or tent at a campsite. If you are instead into stars and the open sky, you can live under the tent cloth in places in nature or in a backyard. Along the Fjordstien are several primitive nature campsites where you can spend the night.
