Only Misti & Jim's, Adam & Bethany's, and Keith & Whitney's departure times were shown on screen.

Teams must travel by ferry back to Aberdeen, Scotland, where they must travel by plane from Aberdeen Airport to Copenhagen, Denmark. Upon arrival at Copenhagen Airport, teams must retrieve their next clue placed on their Ford C-Max hybrid vehicles.

Teams must drive their Ford C-Max across the Øresund Bridge to Malmö, Sweden. However, teams must not exceed 0.10 gallons during their trip. Teams will have their hybrid car's fuel checked at Stortorget in Malmö. If teams exceeded 0.10 gallons during their trip, they will be required to answer a geography question regarding the capitals of the Scandinavian countries (Copenhagen, Denmark; Oslo, Norway; and Stockholm, Sweden) in order to receive their next clue. Otherwise, shall teams be able to drive conservatively using less than 0.10 gallons, they will be awarded their next clue. Keith & Whitney, Kym & Alli, and Shelley & Nici are the only teams who drove efficiently using less than 0.10 gallons.

Choice A: Parking Space
At Sankt Jørgens Allé back in Copenhagen, teams must assemble one of two options given to them for the parklet design that they wish to assemble, using a photograph as their guide, under the 30 minutes they had for their parking time. If they fail to assemble their parklet within 30 minutes, they will have to transfer to another parking space to reassemble. Otherwise, if their judge is satisfied with their assembly, they will be given their next clue. Adam & Bethany, Amy & Maya, Keith & Whitney, Shelley & Nici, and Tim & Te Jay chose this task.
Choice B: Wedding Cake
At Det Franske Conditori in Copenhagen, teams must assemble a kransekake, a traditional wedding cake, which they must deliver to the Allegade 10 restaurant using a freight bicycle, where their cake will be judged by the maître d'hôtel. If the maître d'hôtel is satisfied with their cake, teams must return the receipt signed by the maître d'hôtel to the head baker back at Det Franske Conditori in exchange for their next clue. Brooke & Robbie, Kym & Alli, and Misti & Jim chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to Ida Davidsen, where they will find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to get the smørrebrød orders of two customers, in which they must recite the menu number and the smørrebrød's contents to Ida Davidsen herself, using a list as their guide for the smørrebrød's contents. Once Davidsen has accepted their order requests, she will present the smørrebrøds to be delivered to the customers, who will give them their next clue. The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to the VM Houses to check in.
For coming in first place, Kym & Alli each won a Ford C-Max. For coming in last place, Misti & Jim will have to perform a Speed Bump at some point during the next leg of the race.
