Hærvejen med skilt Hammer

Discover The Ancient Road by bike in Himmerland

We could also call this section of the cycling trail “route through fjord and forest area”. Along the way you get to experience the nature reserve Hammer Bakker, the forest Rold Skov, the Limfjord and the Mariager Fjord, interrupted by a lot of small trails through open agricultural areas.

The route connects the city Aalborg at the Limfjord and Viborg, the old capital of The Ancient Road. This route has a wide range of attractions on offer: from small to large. If there was enough space on this page, we would love to tell you about every single one of them! Instead we chose a smaller selection.

At the top you can find information regarding the cities, the nature and the history as well as detailed suggestions for different hiking sections. 

At the bottom of the page there is information to help you plan your trip. Please note that you can also find a lot of interesting information in “Hærvejen – Guide for hikers and cyclists”, the print version of our map.
