Denmark - Haervej Trail

Hærvejen is an old 17th century road that goes through Jylland. Here we meet beautiful nature and lots of fantastic stories, which makes Hærvejen a very special riding experience. Hærvejen is going from  Viborg to the royal city of Jelling. We shorten the route a little and ride from Skive to Egted, about 150km in the saddle. We ride through some of Denmark's most beautiful landscapes with hills, valleys, meadows, lakes, streams, bushes, forest and heather. On the way we will spend the night in various guest houses and B & Bs.
Hærvejen is Denmark's oldest pilgrimage route, which stretches from Viborg via Flensburg to Hamburg in Germany. The route offers many interesting sights and exciting stories from old times. We look forward to taking you on an adventurous journey through Denmark from Viborg to Egtved. Beautiful nature and fascinating history make Hærvejen a very special experience.
