Experience The Ancient Road

The Ancient Road consists of a few hundred kilometres of hiking and cycling trails that reach from the north to the south of Jutland.

Along the way the route leads you very closely past everything one could wish for in the Danish countryside: the sea, the coastline, the heath, the forests and the open landscape as well as some of the most interesting locations of Denmark’s history.

We have put together all the information we think you might need: a description of the particular trails, attractions along the trail as well as maps.

You can find information about accommodation and restaurants along the way in our interactive map.
