Discover Himmerland from The Ancient Road cycling route

You can look forward to a cycling tour on which you get to experience the lush nature reserve Hammer Bakker, the lowland Gravlev Ådal and the large forest Rold Skov. 

A beautiful ride awaits you after that on the small trails of Himmerland, past the Viking fortress Fyrkrat and the Mariager Fjord before reaching the city Viborg.

After leaving Aalborg on The Ancient Road towards the south, you pass through the valley Østerådalen, a beautiful marshland with flat lakes and lush birdlife. The route continues on through open landscape and small forests before it sends you on a discovery through the large forest Rold Skov. This is where you will find the beautiful flat called Gravlev Ådal, the lake Stor Økssø, as well as several springs. The route leads you further towards Arden, Døstrup and Vebbestrup on large and small trails. Vebbestrup is a good place for taking a break and picking up something to eat. In Hobro The Ancient Road follows its original course, past the Viking fortress Fyrkat and the flat Onsild Ådal as well as the inner part of the Fjord Mariager. The route then leads further through the towns Rødding and Vammen. Along the trail you cycle through open scenery, small forests and lakes until you get to Viborg.

We have collected a few local attractions here to inspire you.
