Everything about this tour is brilliant. Lena is down to earth, funny and has a wealth of knowledge about Copenhagen, Denmark and it's people. She has great recommendations for restaurants and bars too! This was certainly a highlight of our trip and I'd thoroughly recommend it anyone visiting. The running makes it all the more rewarding. Thanks Lena!

I booked both the "City Tour" and the "Christiania Tour". After having enjoyed the city trip so much, I also went for the Christiania Running Tour. It was really a pleasure to go for both runs. Lena, who is doing the tours, knows a lot and can give you advice and tips where to go during your stay in Copenhagen.... More

I highly recommend Lena’s running tour of Copenhagen. Having only the weekend to visit and doing very little research beforehand, I tried to book a walking or bike tour since I was lazy ... hehe. It was a blessing in disguise that the start times of both didn’t align with my arrival in Copenhagen and Lena was so accommodating that... More

Let me put it bluntly. If you do not join one of Lena's running tours you are missing out. This is by far the best sightseeing tour I have ever done - interesting, fun and scenic. I joined the Architecture tour and we ended up being a small group of 4 runners representing Canada, Singapore and Denmark. Lena quickly made... More

I joined Lena for the business tour (although on vacation) and learned that great company and a relaxed run combined with the Copenhagen sunrise is far better than sleeping in. Lena was very knowledgable and open to sharing all sorts of interesting facts and thoughts on Danish history, politics, and culture. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Would... More

This has been the second time that I have done a tour with Running Copenhagen. Both have been excellent and a great way to learn about a fantastic city. Lena is knowledgeable and informative, and really gives added value. Running Copenhagen offers a range of tours that will suit all different interests and no one who can run even at... More

Both myself and My wife run and she booked this as surprise present. Met with Lena outside the parliament building and started with a short history of the building and the Monarchy. We ran at a pace that allowed us all to chat over mixed paths and cobbles stopping to some of the lesser well known areas of interest. Lena... More

We stumbled across the Running Copenhagen site looking for places to run while visiting, and it was a great find! We saw all the major sites, and got some fun stories and info on top of the official tour info (like who has the best public restrooms :-p ). Also saw lots of cool things you probably don't get on...

11 of us arrived in Copenhagen for a Stag do on Thursday night (28th August '14) for a few days. We knew we weren't going to see much of the city being on a Stag Do, so booked an 8km run so we could see some sights, and earn our beers for later. Lena was a wonderful top guide, showing... More

We joined Lena first for the City Centre tour and loved it so much we ran with her on the Christiana tour the next morning. We learned more about the Copenhagen and Denmark in general in those few hours than we did on all of our other tours and excursions combined. Lena was knowledgeable and personable and showed us parts... More
