A Running Tour in Copenhagen is by far the best way to experience the city. On this group running tour you will experience the Copenhagen Must Sees such as The Little Mermaid, Amalienborg (the Royal Palace), Nyhavn and the Danish Parliament, Christiansborg. This is also the tour that passes through the old town centre and guests will be taken back in time while running in Copenhagen.
This running tour is the classic sightseeing tour in Copenhagen but because it is a running tour it is a bit special. You will of course see all the main sights but in addition you will also run along the beautiful harbour in our small capital. On the second half of the tour we run through some of Copenhagen’s many parks and while some of these are busy and popular others are quiet and in our opinion completely overlooked. You will have the chance to experience the parks that only the local Copenhageners enjoy and use while also running uninterruptedly and away from the beaten tourist paths.
Group Sightseeing Tour
Just in case you imagine yourself running in a group of 50 people following a running guide with a flag on a stick, then do not worry. The groups we run in are small and usually no more than 2-8 people. This means that you will join a running tour in Copenhagen with other runners from around the world and in the company of a local Danish guide, but in small and intimate group. Our group running tours are informal and we encourage people to talk amongst themselves while we run through the city, and while it is usually fairly quiet when we start the running tour, then it is very often by the end of the tour difficult for the guide to get some airtime as the conversation amongst the runners simply flow. This is needless to say also part of our group running tour here in Copenhagen. We can of course always bring a stick with a flag, if you prefer 😉
If you would rather run your own pace, your own distance and have the running guide all to yourself, then have a look at our Private Must See Tour
IMPORTANT: The running pace on the group tour is 6.00 min/km and it is important that all participants are able to run at this pace comfortable.
