Rebild 95 km

Our 95 km gravel route is an unforgettable ride back through history featuring unique experiences on gravel and dirt roads, beatiful nature and challenging climbs.

HÆRVEJSLØBET – The Viking Gran Fondo is a both challenging and unforgettable ride along the natural ridge that was formed through Jutland during the last ice age. Here, an ancient road – Hærvejen – has, over the centuries, helped migrants, pilgrims, merchants and Vikings stay dry as they made their way up through Denmark.

Speaking of Vikings, this 95 km gravel route from Rebild to Viborg might challenge your inner viking with its gravel and dirt roads and steep climbs.

The route passes through the beautiful landscape of the Hærvejen ancient road with rolling cornfields, beech forests, hills, lakes and idyllic villages.

Your inner Viking will be nurtured along the way, as you will pass close to some famous Viking monuments.

While the hardships of this gran fondo might put you to the test, the route also offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy the ride. At two places along the way, you roll through one of our feed stations, famous not only for their great food but also for their even better atmosphere.

The finish line of HÆRVEJSLØBET – The Viking Gran Fondo is on the Parade Square in one of Denmark’s oldest and most charming cities, Viborg; close to the city's 150-year-old cathedral.

Please note - the route is designed for gravel bikes, but it's also allowed to participate on MTB.

What is gravel?

Gravel rides are for those who want to get close to our wonderful nature and enjoy it for more kilometers than you can cover on foot.

Gravel riders ride primarily on gravel. Gravel riding started in the US, where cyclists wanted to get away from the roads but still ride road bikes to experience the nature off-road.

Numerous bike manufacturers produce specific gravel bikes today. They aren't road bikes, nor cyclocross or mountainbikes but something in between.
