With its varied scenery, many villages and short distances, the island is perfect for short and long trips on the bike for the whole family.
Even small kids can join a cycle trip on Samsø. Quiet motor traffic and good, wide bike paths all the way from Tranebjerg on the middle of the island to Nordby in north makes the island a safe place to bicycle. Will the little leg weary, there is always short distance to a comfortable rest in one of Samsøs 22 villages, winding through the landscape, and in many of them you can refresh yourself with a drink in the summer heat.
Samsø is fairly flat and on the few steep hills there are, you can stop for a rest and take a look at the view. Count how many churches you can see from the top of Kongehøjen between Onsbjerg and Tranebjerg.
The whole island is ideal for cycling, and there are very few places you can not stomp on the pedals.
