CYCLING TOUR

Cycling tour Flensburg – Viborg

Top you visit in Viborg with an extra experience!

We offer a special cycling tour from Flensburg (D) to Viborg (DK), a tour of approx. 250 kms, mainly following EuroVelo 3 – the Pilgrims Route.

The Danish part of EuroVelo 3 is know as “Hærvejen” – The Ancient Road. The route is the oldest national cycling in Denmark and consists of scenic cycling trails that stretch through Jutland like a backbone. You will experience a great range of the Danish landscapes and nature as you are cycling on roads and track that has been used for transport for much more that thousand years.

The tours starts in Flensburg Thursday evening September 19. Here we meet for dinner, gets to know each other and learn about the experiences for the next three days.

Departure Friday morning September 20 and soon crossing the border between Germany and Denmark. Todays stage ia mainly flat and leads through the border region showing a very fine co-existing and cycling on historic paths.

Todays destination is the town Jels, well known for its Viking history.

Saturday the tour continues North and soon we meet a little more undulating landscape. The base for the Ancient Road was formed by glaciers during the last ice age, and crossing some deep valleys we see other tracks of the ice.

We visit the very historic village Jelling from where the Danish Royals led the country more than thousand years ago and where a majestic rune stone is the “birth certificate of Denmark”.

The Sunday stage passes close to the Danish Lake District that also hosts the largest forest in Denmark. The route balances between the flat landscape to the West and the more undulating landscape towards East. Approaching Viborg you will pass the Hald Lake, where the dramatic landscape really shows the movements of the glacier during the ice age.

You reach Viborg – the second oldest city in Denmark – during the afternoon – passing the cathedral on the cobbled stones.
