The long one - Mols Bjerge Trail

Slow down, fresh air in your lungs and peace of mind. The iconic Mols Bjerge Trail is certified as Leading Quality Trail - Best of Europe and goes through some of the most beautiful landscapes in the National Park.

The Mols Bjerge Trail is an 80 km hiking trail and is divided into four stages. All the stages offer hiking experiences of high quality with major natural and cultural historical attractions along the way. 
It is possible to hike from shelter to shelter or use the campsites or accommodations along the route.


Beautiful Ahl Hage


If you don't have time, or your legs aren't up to walking 80 kilometers, you can of course also choose to just walk one of the stages. The Mountain stage is the toughest with beautiful views of the two bays, while the Kalø stage, besides the castle ruin, also offers troll trees in the coastal forests and the Hunting Lodge. The Ebeltoft stage goes through forests, past the cozy Ørnbjerg Mølle and later Stubbe Lake, before ending in Ebeltoft. The Gåsehage stage offers beautiful coastal nature, a marsh area, and a side trip to the picturesque holiday town Øer.
