Along this section of the trail, you will experience Fyn’s lush agricultural landscape and the mighty hills and valleys, known as the Funish Alps, created by the retreating glacier. A detour leads to Faaborg, while the main trail takes you through the hilly terrain of Svanninge Hills down to the coast with spectacular views across The South Fyn Archipelago along the way. Since it is not a looped trail, it is a good idea to take the bus back to Falsled (bus schedules available at or a taxi. 

Use map no. 1 when you hike this trail. The map is available on and at the tourist agency.
