Vision

We can all contribute to a better, greener world by taking responsible decisions and actions when it comes to energy solutions and sustainability.

Denmark is a flagship concerning green solutions and my vision with Green Bike Tours is to open peoples eyes to green solutions, and help them experience the green Denmark, hopefully inspiring a change for the better.

It is important to make an appeal to all people to become conscious about their own carbon footprint. We all have a responsibility for our planet and our future.

Léa Severino

Léa is a green guide. Her favourite green place in Copenhagen is the old greenhouse in the Botanical Garden. Peaceful, luxuriant and warm, this great construction from the 19th century is the dream place to read a book or quietly wander. The first thing Léa did when she moved to Copenhagen was to build her own bike from scratch. Since that day, Léa and her beloved bicycle have never left each other; from morning to evening, they keep on exploring the beauties of amazing Copenhagen together. They are both very excited to meet newcomers and take them for a ride, share with them all the secrets of the green capital.

Silvia Pugliese

Silvia is a green guide. Her favourite green site in Copenhagen is Middelgrunden wind farm, which provides sustainable wind energy to the city, located just outside the northern harbour. She is enthusiastic and proud to be a green guide: her dream is to get everyone inspired just like she was, when she saw those wind turbines standing out from Copenhagen landscape for the very first time.

Karla Nüsing

Karla is a green guide. She got to know the green Copenhagen, right from the beginning, when she arrived in Denmark from Germany, and now she wants to open people’s eyes and help them discover the green Copenhagen. She grew up in a bicycle city and for her, a day without riding her bike is not a complete day. Her favorite spot in Copenhagen is the green roof at Rigsarkivet because you can bike here! 

Anton Wrisberg

Anton is a green guide. Growing up in Copenhagen, Anton has always  taken for granted all the green and sustainable initiatives surrounding his everyday life. However, by living with international students, he has come to realise that what we have is unique.

Through his expatriation in Amsterdam and Brisbane he knows that one has to live in and not just visit a city to truly understand it. It is this knowledge about the green Copenhagen that he has been looking forward to sharing with people visiting his beloved city. He is especially looking forward to letting you in on a few secrets of how to get the most out of the sustainable Copenhagen as a student!

Josefine Wulffeld

Josefine is a green guide. She lives in Copenhagen, and loves to experience and share the city’s many green initiatives. On a daily basis she is part of the danish bicycle-culture, and doesn’t go anywhere without her bike.

For her, Copenhagen is the perfect combination of cityvibe and green experience.
