Top 3 hikes in Denmark

Denmark is an underrated hiking destination – it may not have high mountains, but there are plenty of great trails to discover.


Camønoen is known as Denmark’s friendliest hiking trail and stretches 175km around Møn, Nyord and Bogø. A good starting point is Møns Museum, where you can find out more about what there is to see, book accommodation and print out a personalized hiking map. One of the highlights of the area is Møns Klint, white limestone cliffs over 100m high with a sheer drop down into the sea. There’s also an experience center here with interactive exhibits, a state-of-the-art 3D movie theater and guided tours along the cliffs.

Camønoen is part of the Sjællandsleden trail that stretches across the island of Zealand.

At 220km long, Øhavsstien on southern Funen is one of Denmark’s longest hiking trails. It passes through a beautiful cultural landscape, featuring poppy fields and country estates, and is never far from the sea. The trail is divided into seven different stages and these can each be divided into shorter day hikes. Det Sydfynske Øhav contains descriptions of all the stages, together with tips on things to see along the way. Parts of Øhavsstien are on the route of the Fjällräven Classic Denmark, a major trekking event that takes place at the end of June this year.

Why not combine your hike on Funen with a visit to some of Denmark’s castles, such as the 17th-century Valdemar’s Castle?

Along the Bornholm coast a historical coastal path winds through a diverse landscape of cliffs, sandy beaches and unspoiled nature. The trail also passes through a string of little fishing villages and charming towns where you can find both a room for the night and a good place to eat. In other words, the ideal trail for those wanting to experience a bit of Danish hygge.

The entire round trip is close to 120km. It can be done in three days, but if you want to see all the sights and enjoy a more leisurely pace, a week is recommended.

The Bornholm Rundt March takes place from 30 June to 2 July, when the entire route is covered in three days.
