Rold Skov

Farthest north in the scenic Himmerland lies one of Denmark's largest natural forests, Rold Skov. Rold Skov offers great experiences for both adults and children. Here you'll find beautiful springs and lakes, hiking trails, mountain bike tracks, nature playgrounds, and much more.

Rold Skov – the largest and most beautiful forest in Denmark

With its 8,000 hectares, Rold Skov offers many different experiences, and endless possibilities.

Walks in the large wood, MTB, horseback riding, swimming in one of the wood’s many lakes or skiing – Rold Skov has everything.

The rivers attract anglers, and around the forest are many primitive camps (for address/contact - description in Danish), and you’re welcome to use the bivouacs. Campsites, inns and four-star hostels are good alternatives, if you want to investigate the area. Get the full overview of accommodation here.

When the railway came to the area in 1869, towns like Skørping and Arden appeared, and there was a halt (where trains stopped) in the middle of the large forest. The halt doesn’t exist any more, but a pleasant restaurant, Mosskovpavillionen, is still located there and is an ideal placed for gathering energy to take on the beautiful forest.
