Visit Gribskov Forest
Gribskov Forest is one of Denmark’s largest and most beautiful natural areas. The moraines form a gently undulating landscape, which ranges from wild, impassable thickets to broad, open meadows. In the southern part of Gribskov Forest, miles of par force hunting rides carve their way through forests, hills and marshes.
In Gribskov Forest, you can experience nature and history at close quarters. Take a leaflet about hiking routes with you when you tread the old hunting rides, or use one of the marked bike paths, which will guide you safely through the landscape. There are also opportunities to ride on horseback, sleep in primitive shelters and much more.
Ottevejskorset (in English The Ride Eight Cross) is a good place to start your visit, before you make your way into Gribskov Forest and the par force hunting landscape. Here, you will find information boards with maps, texts and leaflets, which can guide you on your way..
