     Viking Tales - Hou Oh the birds of Odin will follow your ship as you get ready to dock at the ancient harbor of Hou.Ashore, you must explore “The forest of the ravens” (Ravneskoven), a symbol that held great value to Vikings. Odins two ravens Hugin and Munin, became the very symbol of Odin himself, and the Danish kings concurred much of Northern Europe under their famous banner called the “Ravenbanner”.Today Ravneskoven is among the few places, in Denmark, where Ravens still nest, so if you are lucky you can find the nest of Odins messengers at Hou.Sailing north, along the coastline, you will soon pass by “The spring of the shinning swords” (Saksild bay). Here, the Viking armies would sacrifice swords and knives in the holy springs, in order to gain the favor of the Norse gods, before going to war.  Viking Tales View on map
     The Short Trip Trehøje The Short Trip Trehøje If you climb the three hilltops, you can experience a view like no other. The landscape rises up steeply from the coast, offering surprisingly pleasant panoramas of Djursland’s undulating landscape on one side and the Kattegat’s sinuous coast on the other.  The landscape of Trehøje is East Jutland’s largest area of grassland, featuring open grassy expanses containing flowers, juniper bushes, and scattered deciduous undergrowth. In the middle of summer, these areas are almost brown-purple in colour, when the wavy hair grass blooms. This time of year is perfect for gathering berries and mushrooms with your family at Trehøje. The hilly landscape was created during the ice age when masses of ice pushed the hills up. During the Bronze Age, the hills were used to construct burial places, and Trehøje is one of the most prominent of 11 burial mounds in the area.   You can experience the area on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. There are a number of parking areas at Mols Bjerge, and you can drive your car directly into a car park at Trehøje. is an inspiration guide with 50 unique nature experiences throughout the country.
