Discover The Ancient Road in Northeast Jutland on foot

North Jutland is not only the tip of Jutland! In North Jutland, the ground has risen since the last ice age and formed the large, high plains, through which The Ancient Road will lead you. It seems as though one can see a little bit more of everything from up there.
