The ancient road 'Hærvejen' has more than 500 km of hiking route (red) and 450 km of cycling route (blue).
The Ancient Road consists of a few hundred kilometres of hiking trails that stretch through Jutland like a backbone. In other words: There is the opportunity to experience the entire range of the Danish landscape and nature, which varies from heathland, plantations and coastal areas in the north to smaller valleys, forests and hills in the south. You walk past beautiful scenery and amazing gems of nature along the way.
With that many kilometres of trails to choose from, it may be hard to decide. We have put the routes on this page into geographical order to make choosing the destination for your next hiking trip easier for you. In the trail descriptions you will find information about the nature, the history and the attractions. In our interactive map there is information on restaurants and accommodation.
