Weekend hike with accommodation in the beautiful nature between Vejle and Billund

This hiking route extends over a full 36 km, which we recommend that you spread over several days. In this way you can get the most out of the hiking's many fantastic experiences and sights. There are plenty of options for accommodation during the route, where you can choose between the slightly more luxurious hotel accommodation at Haraldskær Hovedgård or a tent accommodation at one of three primitive campsites.

From here you pass Haraldskær Hovedgård, Haraldskær Fabrik, Vingsted Iron Age Village and Ravning Station. From Ravning Station you just have to walk 6 km to reach Bindeballe Købmandsgård. Here you can enjoy a delicious refreshment, and explore the historical surroundings. It is also possible to rent a cabin for the night before the trip continues.

From Bindeballe Købmandsgård, the route takes you on gravel roads through forest, plantation and fields. Frederikshåb Plantage is truly a fantastic nature experience, here you will find Hestedalen and Syvårssøerne, among other places.
