Hiking In Denmark
Hiking in one of the most beautiful sceneries of Denmark, The Danish Lake district offers a wealth of options.
The landscape is very varied and you can walk both on marked paths and open countryside. Here, you will find space for tranquillity and immersion. You can experience on your own or participate in guided tours.
Did you know that it is possible to climb mountains in Denmark? In the Danish Lake District, 15 summits of more than 100 m (!) above sea level are mapped and described with GPS positions and vertical metres. Some have a steep ascending, but all can be climbed with a normal physical fitness, and the reward is some marvellous views. As an extra incentive, codes have been placed at the bottom and the peak of the hills, and when all are found and registered on “bestigbjerge.dk”, you can enter the “Hall of Fame”. Description of the mountains can be downloaded from the website “bestigbjerge.dk” or issued at the camp site.
The cultural history of this area can e.g. be experienced on the “Scannerborg route” or the “StoRYtour”, where QR codes are found in interesting places on the route. You can download the stories for free on your smartphone for listening or reading – also in English. All it takes is a scanner, which can be downloaded from e.g. scanlife.com for free.
For geocachers there are approx. 1.000 active caches within a radius of 50 km from Skanderborg Sø Camping, so both beginners and experienced can find challenges in this beautiful area. You can find the cache descriptions on geocaching.dk.
The very varied and incredibly beautiful nature around the lake Mossø and all the marked paths in that area are described in the brochure “Mossø”, which can be downloaded on Naturstyrelsen.dk or you can have it for free at Skanderborg Sø Camping when you accommodate here.
“Spor i landskabet” (Tracks in the landscape) has published pamphlets with lovely, easily accessed walks in the environs of Skanderborg and “VisitSkanderborg” has published a pamphlet with 12 very varied walks as well.
Furthermore, we have many other suggestions and descriptions for short and longer walks in the woods, through moors or along the lakes and inlets with varied degrees of difficulty.
Skanderborg Sø Camping is a member of “WalkingDenmark” which means that we are well informed about the walking possibilities in the surroundings, that you can buy meals at the site or use a kitchen for making it yourself, that we have a room where you can dine, that you can get your clothes and equipment dried, and that we can advise you in almost all walking related matters.
