Hærvejen, an ancient road from the 17th century that traverses Jylland, offers a unique riding experience with its stunning nature and captivating stories. The route spans from Viborg to the royal city of Jelling, but we will cover a shorter distance from Skive to Egted, approximately 150km on horseback. 

Along the way, we will encounter some of Denmark's most picturesque landscapes, including hills, valleys, meadows, lakes, streams, bushes, forests and heather. We will stay overnight at various guest houses and B&Bs. 

Hærvejen is Denmark's oldest pilgrimage route, extending from Viborg to Flensburg and Hamburg in Germany, and it boasts numerous interesting sights and intriguing tales from ancient times. Join us for an adventurous journey through Denmark, where you can immerse yourself in the beauty of nature and the rich history of Hærvejen.

Owner and manager Horses have always been a big part of my life, and family. I started with one horse and now we have more than 100 icelandic horses. We are breeding on strong horses, easy to handle and nice gaits. I choose my guides – not only on riding qualifications but also on human talents. I always have contact to all clients more er less every day. Our horses are never locked up in a box but they all enjoy freedom and social contact to other horses. I do ride myself as well – but running a big business does require you more in front of a PC then on the back of a horse.

    Vi har haft et rigtig dejligt ophold på gården. Værelset vi boede på var pænt, rent og hyggeligt indrettet. Maden var rigtig lækker, både buffeterne og morgenmaden. Servicen var god, både i receptionen og i restauranten.

    För en veckas ridsemester var min fru och jag mycket nöjda med vårt besök på gården. Vi hade en fantastisk semester och överträffade våra förväntningar. Det finns vissa behov av renovering på hotellet som helhet, men jag får intrycket att det blir bättre med tiden. Lägenheten vi bodde i var ett rum som nyligen hade renoverats och hade ett modernt utseende. Medföljande middagsbuffé var utmärkt, och de andra kvällarna var mer "okej". Det verkar som om fiskbuffén och "det jyske kaffebordet" är utmärkta. Även om personalen var lite stressad och förvirrad ibland, var de trevliga. Ridningen och dess tillbehör var fantastiska. Det finns fina hästar, bra personal och en underbar natur. Jag kommer aldrig att glömma de långa galopperna över de enorma stränderna. Vi red i en röd grupp, som var mer erfaren, och tempot var därefter. När det gäller ridförmågan är det här inte ett ställe att överdriva, eftersom det går snabbt i den röda gruppen. Engelska, Danska och Tyska används för att kommunicera. Det finns trevlig personal och en familjär stämning på platsen. En kväll vi var där ordnade de en brasa på stranden med gratis snacks och billigt öl och vin. Hej! Vi ser fram emot vår återkomst.
