The Ancient Road in Northwest Jutland leads you through the harbour town of Hirthals and Løgstør, the town of mussels, at the Limfjord. The landscape is typical for the coast of the North Sea in Northwest Jutland: steep coastal sections along the sea, heathland, forests and open agricultural land. 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.
