Where shall we go?

Nature guides from the Nature Agency show the way to interesting sights and experiences in the countryside.

Free camping

You can camp for free overnight at many of the Nature Agency's sites.

Dogs in the countryside

In general dogs must be kept on a lead in the countryside. There are special woods for dogs where they can run free - provided your dog has been trained to come when called.

Camp fire sites

Cook your food over an open fire. The Danish Nature Agency's camp fire sites are available to everyone and need not be booked.

Get fit in the countryside

Fresh air, beautiful surroundings and a soft surface underfoot. There are many good reasons to plan your running route in the countryside. You can also exercise in the countryside or take a stopwatch and test your fitness on one of the Nature Agency health trails.
