MAGIC is with you all the time, when hiking through the Mols Bjerge National Park in Syddjurs Municipality, Central Jutland. The Mols Bjerge Trail is 60 kilometers of hiking through the National Park with its great variation in landscape and nature.
During the latest Ice Age, 18,000 years ago, the ice stopped its progressing in what is today the National Park on the peninsula west of Arhus.
Here it stood like a cold white wall several hundred feet above the land. The ice melted away in an inferno of stones, ice and water.
Out of these profound changes, the magical landscape was born with large curved ridges above crystal clear bays, fascinating kettle holes and glacial valleys.
Many years later, man came to the area and created with his livestock a cultural landscape with immensely high natural value.
Here, hikers can enjoy a hilly landscape lined with white beaches, spectacular historical monuments, varying scenery and charming villages.
Red kite floats elegantly high on the sky. Wild horses graze in „the Danish mountains“ with the great biodiversity of the sunny grasslands.
Impressive Bronze Age burial mounds are towering in the countryside, and from the top you look down on several blue bays.
You pass the national medieval icon, Kalø Castle ruin, a beautiful manor landscape, miles of coastline and the cozy seaport of Ebeltoft with its topped cobblestones, half-timbered houses and hollyhocks in the gardens
