Discover The Ancient Road in Himmerland on foot

In Himmerland we are happy that we can offer two hiking routes. The Ancient Roads splits north of Aars into a northeastern route towards Aalborg and Frederikshavn, and a northwestern route towards Løgstør and Hirtshals. Now it´s your turn to choose the hiking route you prefer.
 

The landscape is typical for Middle Jutland with the Limfjord, forests and open areas as well as several smaller and larger green gems of nature along the way.

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.
