Travel days

1. Day: Arrival - Husum

Individual arrival to Husum. Make use of the remaining time for a stroll through the grey city on the sea, as described by the poet Theodor Storm.

2. Day: Husum - Föhr Island (approx. 44-56 km)

You travel along the North Frisian coastal landscape and cycle past Bredstedt to Dagebüll. During the afternoon, you travel by ferry (incl.) onto the green Island Föhr, where you will spend the night.

3. Day: Föhr Island - Round tour - Föhr Island (approx. 42 km)

Today you can explore the island. Föhr is also known as the “Frisian Caribbean” due to the mild temperatures and longer hours of sunshine. Away from the island capital Wyk, there is peace and quiet in the midst of the national park, up to the horizon.

4. Day: Föhr Island - Amrum Island (approx. 1-30 km)

After a short ferry ride (incl.), you will reach the neighbouring island Amrum. The Kniepsand (sand bank) which is over 1 km wide, forms one of the most massive beaches on the German North Sea coast. Expansive dune landscape, Frisian houses, forest and heath characterise the island environment.

5. Day: Amrum Island - Excursion to Hallig Hooge - Amrum Island (approx. 30 km)

Ship ride (incl., without bike) to Hallig Hooge, which lies southwards from Amrum. The Königspesel is famous here, which has its name from the Danish king Friedrich VI. Overnight stay on the Amrum Island. We are happy to book additional nights for you, in order for you to go on an excursion to Sylt (not included in the travel price), or just to relax some more in this dreamlike area.

6. Day: Amrum Island - Bredstedt/surroundings (approx. 26-51 km)

You travel by ferry once more (incl.) back to the mainland to Dagebüll. Travelling along the dykes, you will arrive in the North Frisian Bredstedt, the centre of Frisian language research. Overnight stay in Bredstedt or surroundings.

7. Day: Bredstedt/surroundings - Husum (approx. 54 km)

You cycle along the dykes across the Wattenmeer, past the Hamburger Hallig to Nordstrand. You can travel by horse-drawn carriage through the Watt or take a side-trip to the Pellworm Island.
