The forest, Rold Skov, is the perfect backdrop for a relaxing or active holiday, and on top of this, you can explore one of the many amazing gastronomic and cultural experiences.

Visit Rold Forest, where nature is something special. You will find amazing landscapes and many nature activities - the perfect destination for a holiday in North Jutland. Grab your family and take a trip through the rolling hills, relax and find peace of mind in the green nature. The forest gives you the opportunity to try some of the culinary experiences and sometimes the more physically challenging adventures. 

A breathing space for all

Fortunately, the level of exercise is up to the individual: highly active people may challenge themselves by a 23-kilometre wild mountain-bike ride in Rold Forest – either on their own or in the company of a guide. This means sweat on your brow and leaves in your hair. If you prefer a more modest adrenaline kick, there are countless wonderful marked hiking routes. You can also rent a canoe for a peaceful trip down the stream, Lindenborg Å. A charming stay during your tour, whether it is by foot, cykel or in a canoe, is the exuberant source Lille Blåkilde in Bjerge forest, which is one of the water richest sources in North Europe. The path through Rold forest and Trolde forest will let you pass the water source Springkilden or one of the many ancient tombs. If you have children with you, you also have to visit Røverknolden, the best playground in the North.

With your water supplies replenished from the crystal-clear spring, you are prepared for the return trip to one of Rebild’s charming hotels, such as e.g. the luxurious Rold Storkro with its fireplace, sauna and swimming pool – or "Heden", Gudrun and Marinus Knudsen’s B & B, who have the forest of Rold as its backyard. One regularly recurring event is, of course, the Rebild Celebrations, where – on the United States’ Independence Day, Danish-Americans will get together under the treetops, celebrating Danish traditions. This is a great historical experience for all.

Here you can read more about the Rebild celebrations.

A little later in the year, the green forest is the framework for yet a tremendous experience – this time against a musical backdrop, namely Opera in Rebild. Here love constitutes the overriding theme for the participating great soloists, from Denmark and abroad. Over the summer, the area provides rich opportunity for taking a blanket to the lake, Store Okssø, and lie it down by the lakeside. Remember to stuff your hamper with popcorn, for the big outdoor screen will feature a currently popular film.
