North Sealand offers a range of different habitat of nature, ice age landscapes and rare species. If you want to go hiking, the possibilities are plenty. Walk around in Denmark’s history in a landscape where the Vikings have vandalised, kings have reigned, and legends have arisen.

Kierkegaard: “If one just keeps on walking, everything will be all right”

Hikes in North Sealand

The pilgrims have walked here since the Middle Ages and our own Søren Kierkegaard used the area to take a mental break. For instance, he wrote: “if one just keeps on walking, everything will be all right”. In North Sealand, you find all you need as a hiker. So, pack your backpack, tie your hiking shoes and have a great experience in the unique nature! Do you prefer a more rough and severe experience, and are you able to make your own camp, gather your own food and light a fire? Start your mornings with a dive in the sea or one of the lakes approved for bathing. Here, you can also pull the plug, forget the time and go hiking in your own mind.
