Mountain biking in North Jutland

Photo: VisitNordjylland

North Jutland offers many different mountain biking routes in beautiful nature. Experience the adrenalin in your body and the fresh wind in your face on one of the many routes around North Jutland.

 

Around the Danish state forests, you will find a lot of different MTB routes. Many of them are established as independent MTB tracks and often as single tracks. Here you can ride a mountain bike outside the forest paths and forest roads where the other forest visitors travel. In addition to the marked mountain bike routes, North Jutland offers a number of mountain bike options in forests and on trails.

It is generally allowed to cycle on all paths and roads in the Danish forests that are man-made and which appear suitable for cycling with an ordinary bicycle (in private forests, however, only from 6 am until sunset). You must not cycle, either on a regular bicycle or on an MTB, in the forest floor, in dunes, or on rock dikes, etc. You must not make your own MTB tracks in the forest. Of course, remember to show consideration for other forest visitors when biking in the woods.
