First post for the Op.

Speaking for myself I never would have thought myself capable of doing a bike tour until I tried a supported tour along the Danube. Then I discovered how wonderful it was, and how surprisingly easy it was.

Op, I'm sure a quick Google will throw up results. The company I used was RadReisen based in Austria. I've no idea if they do Denmark.

I found them fully competent and any problems were my own responsibility due to not reading the instructions properly! :D
All the logistics were fully taken care of which meant a totally stress free trip.

If this is your first tour - be careful!! They can be addictive! :D

Inntravel do a couple of cycle tours in Denmark -- neither are very long, but perhaps that's ok, if you're just dipping a toe in the cycle-touring water? I haven't used them for a cycling holiday, but for other things I've had very good experiences (in terms of communications, organisation, etc). However (or perhaps: therefore...) they are not at all cheap...

No direct experience, but I know someone who has done a couple of holidays with https://ruby-rejser.dk/eng-welcome who do cycling holidays in Denmark.

You could also have look at AktivDanmark. the website is not available in English, so you'll have to use a translator, but they have advice & offers on active holidays, including cycling https://www.danskturismefremme.dk/aktiv-ferie/cykling

There is also a national cyclists' organisation https://www.cyklistforbundet.dk/
I imagine they have some resources, but you might have to call or email to get information in English.

I've never used a tour company, but can understand why some people would want to. It can be a bit daunting at first to have to organise everything. However, each facet is fairly simple nowadays, particularly with the internet enabling you to book everything.

I've listed a couple of companies below, but most here would wince at the cost. About £1,000 each for an 8 day unescorted tour is a lot of money.

If you think you would like to have a go at organising your own trip, please supply info on what sort of trip you want. As much info as possible, including: own or hire bike; distance; accommodation type; where do you want to go; how getting there; etc.
