Amagerminoen is Copenhagen’s ”Camino” - A 24 km hiking and biking trail that stretches from Copenhagen's Ørestad neighbourhood through the vast nature reserve of Naturpark Amager to the picturesque town of Dragør.
The beautiful Rudersdal route runs 42 km along gravel and bicycle paths through a varied landscape from the seaside village of Vedbæk in the east to Kajerød in the west with lakes, streams, hills and bogs. Here you will enjoy idyllic nature all for yourself and can walk, cycle and run as you please.
The parforce landscape in North Zealand consists of three forests, Gribskov, Store Dyrehave and Jægersborg Dyrehave, each with its own character. They are all public forests, which means that they are accessible to everyone. The gravel roads and paths that pass through the World Heritage Site crosswise are mostly closed to car traffic, and provide great opportunities for cycling and enjoying nature.
