What to expect

Find out why Danish people have been frequently ranked among the happiest in the world in this thought-provoking tour, all while riding a cargo bike across Copenhagen’s iconic bike bridges, cobblestone streets, colorful houses and vibrant districts.

In this 3-hour tour, your guide will discuss the six key ingredients that make this city one of the happiest in the world through excerpts from happiness research, historical curiosities and personal anecdotes. You will also look at how design of public infrastructure can influence happiness and how the fabric of Danish society and culture are promoting satisfaction among residents.

The cargo bikes are designed to be shared by two people where one pedals and the other enjoys the ride in the passenger seat. The tour is structured in such a way that you will stop every 10-15 minutes for a talk, so there will be enough opportunities to alternate the roles.

All cargo bikes are equipped with hydraulic brakes and electric assistance, and as such are suitable for riders of all fitness levels. In addition, each bike is equipped with a soft pillow and a blanket for comfort to ensure a cozy ride for the passenger.
