Vejen 160 km

Are you up for a fascinating mix of physical challenges, historical sights and attractions and breath-taking scenery at every turn of the pedals? The 160 kilometer route from Vejen to Viborg is both challenging, historic and beautiful.

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, you should definitely be one yourself to overcome this 160 km challenge and its climbs of up to 10%.

The 160 km route from Vejen to Viborg passes through the beautiful landscape with rolling cornfields, beech forests, hills, lakes and idyllic villages.

Your inner Viking will be nurtured along the way. Not least when you ride through the town of Jelling, a stronghold of famous Viking kings in the tenth century. And as you pass within touching distance of King Harald Bluetooth’s famous rune stone, you can almost imagine Viking horns growing out of your cycle helmet.

While the hardships of this demanding gran fondo will definitely put you to the test, the route also offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy the ride. As many as four 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.
