Passing castles, manors, mills and churches that time seems to have forgotten; through forests filled with life; over undulating farmland and with the coastline never far away, this 75km-trail is a mixture of nature’s and people’s best creations.
The Fjällräven Classic concept started in northern Sweden in 2005. After many successful years and a growing number of participants, we decided to add a new classic in Denmark. In 2014 the inaugural event had just a few hundred participants, mainly Danes. By 2016 this number had risen to 600 and with trekkers from 16 different countries.
The trek in Denmark is roughly 35km shorter than the Swedish original and is completed over three days. While there’s no free camping, the three campsites are hubs of life come nightfall. Here you can share stories and experiences from the trail.
The trek follows part of Denmark’s South Funen Archipelago Trail, from Faldsled harbour to Valdemars Castle. We take care of the logistics – food, transfers, checkpoints, support and even a few little treats along the way – but you’ll carry everything you need on your back. You’ll move at a pace that suits you, soak up plenty of ‘me time’ and even make new friends along the way.
Classic Denmark is the continuation of the Classic legacy. It’s our chance to show you that you don’t need to travel far and wide to find nature. In fact, nature is often right on your doorstep.
