Cycling, mountain biking, sea kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and much more
The Heart of Jutland is a national powerhouse of history, culture, art, design and gastronomy. And all points of interest are so close that you can reach them on a fantastic bike ride around the region. Start in Kolding, Vejle or Billund. Pack your essentials for the trip and go on a 3-day adventure. There's also plenty of opportunity for mountain biking in one of the region’s many forests.
Or how about a brisk trail run (running on paths in the woods and nature) in the hills around Munkebjerg Hotel.
Or a guided sea kayak tour on Vejle Fjord, that perhaps tempts you instead. Here you will be instructed in the most important steps of kayaking, before you safely set off into the fjord with the help of instructors. If you are already familiar with kayaking, you can have an unforgettable and active nature experience in a sea kayak in the beautiful surroundings of Naturpark Lillebælt.
You can also try your skill at stand up paddle boarding (SUP) in Naturpark Lillebælt, where you can learn to find your balance and train different techniques. Plus, you’ll learn how to read the sea, so you are ready for your SUP adventure.
