I booked a 15km private running tour of Copenhagen. Lena communicated well in advance, arrived at my hotel on time, and let me shape where I wanted to go on the run. I have been to Copenhagen before, so I asked Lena to take me through Christiania, Holmen, and on a whim ended up at the top of a steeple... More

Lena is so nice and so knowledgable. I felt I learned more on this 8 kilometer fun than on the whole rest of my visit to Copenhagen. If you're not a serious runner don't worry. She manages to find a pace that works for everyone and there are many stops as Lena explains what we're seeing. Highly recommended!

I hope that your anticipation of returning to Copenhagen within 12 months holds true and that you and your wife will be back here. If you have... More

We are 3 old friends from Ireland and UK. We arrived in Copenhagen on a weekend city break. 2 of us are keen runners, and the only research I had done was to see if there were any good running routes in the city. That led me to Lena's website, and I was immediately taken with the idea of a... More

I am glad you could use my recommendations and great to hear you ventured to all my personal favourites :-) Bring the wife and kids next time. Best regards,... More

My tour was booked as an anniversary surprise, and it certainly was! I haven't run for 9 months and the last time I ran 10k was a year ago so I was a bit nervous. Lena was so kind and caring she always asked if I was OK and kept me going with her in funny anecdotes. It's just the... More

Hi Sam and Tom, There is nothing like a bit of royal gossip that can take your mind off a 10 km run, right ? :-) It was an absolute pleasure to run with you and a special thanks to Tom for having the courage to book the run. You guys were a lovely couple to spend a few hours... More

Having gone on the 15km running tour with Robin in Barcelona, and loved every part of it, I was keen to find something similar on my recent trip to Copenhagen! Never did I think I'd end up with Robin's business partner, Lena. My 15km private tour of the city was incredible, Lena knew so much about the city and was... More

Having read the trip advisor reviews I expected this to be a very good tour. It turned out to be a brilliant tour. Lena gave me exactly what I asked for - an introduction to Copenhagen's modern architecture and an insight into how Copenhageners live. It's a really great way to spend 90 minutes. And what makes it even better... More

My boyfriend and I spotted this tour and thought it sounded like a fantastic idea. We were only in Copenhagen for one night and a running tour allowed us to get lots of sights in only a short time. Lena was amazing as a guide- she was incredibly knowledgeable about a range of different historical, political and social events in... More

Hi Saoirse and Linus, Thank you for the review and very fun company. It was great to show you Copenhagen while exchanging "parents in law" strategies. I was glad to read in your email that the "meet the parents" went well :-) Have a continued great summer in Dublin and come back for longer next time. Best regards, Lena More

The run tour with Lena was awesome! Easy to find the meeting point, lots of info about Copenhagen, easy pace to run at and still able to chit chat with fellow runners. I did the 8km group tour at 9.30am and saw the Little Mermaid statue, Christiansborg Castle, Nyhavn, and learned about the most expensive statue in Denmark 😁. Highly... More

Leena picked me up from my hotel in a rainy Monday morning! We ran all over Copenhagen! Lena is very knowledgeable and provided me with an amazing tour of Copenhagen. It was the best way to see all of the sights and learn as much as me could about Copenhagen in a short amount of time!
