Stage 10 gives you the very best of the archipelago and a great insight into the three seaports of Svendborg, Faaborg and Assens. Each area has its own distinctive character, so it will be up to you to choose which one is your favourite. In between these Towns, you will find charming little villages where life on southern Fyn has its very own ambience with either outdoor activities to partake in, or the quiet life to enjoy.
The journey from Svendborg to Assens is close to the coast, so you are never far from a beach stop. You are furthest from the shore when you cycle in towards the Alps of Fyn, also called the ‘Svanninge Bakker’. Still, even here you will be able to see the archipelago from the many vista points. You ride on lovely, quiet little roads, flanked by fields and forests, with timber-framed houses.
You can take a few detours along the way, maybe Egeskov Castle or the most beautiful, untouched countryside of the peninsulas of Helnæs and Thorø Huse. Perhaps do some island hopping in the summer months, from Faaborg Harbour. It is incredibly popular, so book early to secure your space.

Egeskov Castle is Fyn’s second largest tourist attraction and one not to be missed. The castle is the largest, most well-preserved moat castle in Europe. It is surrounded by an idyllic, awardwinning park with flowers, mazes and ancient trees. This living castle with its hospitable motto ‘We wish you a heartfelt welcome’ is the home of the the Ahlefeldt-Laurvig-Bille family.
There is a wonderful collection of rare planes, cars and motorbikes in the classic car exhibition and you can visit the world’s most wondrous dolls house ‘Titanias Palace’. Should you like a little horror, you can seek out the Crypt of Dracula. Egeskov is open from May to mid-October and again for the Christmas Market and the light experience ’Luminis’. To get to the castle from the Baltic Sea Cycle Route requires a 16km detour as it is located in the middle of Fyn, near Kværndrup and is a ‘must visit’ on Fyn.
