The hilly and varied landscape in the Lakelands is a gem of Danish nature. And with its soft hills, winding roads, deep lakes, fine beaches and cozy villages, the Lakelands invites you to motorcycle bike rides. Here you can also enjoy the view of Denmark's longest river, Gudenåen, which passes through the charming tourist town of Ry - a favorite stop for many motorcyclists. The lake in Skanderborg and the music festival Smukfest also offer wonderful experiences.
As a motorcyclist in the Lakelands you will constantly encounter good stories and dissemination of the nature and culture that surrounds you. And it's not far between the delicious eateries and old inns. If you want to go for a trip to the Himmelbjerget (Sky Mountain), do not be afraid of thin air: with its 147 meters, Himmelbjerget was until 1847 named Denmark's highest point. But in recent times it has turned out that Møllehøj, next to Ejer Bavnehøj, is more than 171 meters above sea level.
Ivan Damborg has been motorbiking in most of the countries in Europe. But after settling in the small village Tørring north of Ry, he has discovered that the very best countryside for motorbiking is just outside their door.
- In the Lakelands you can experience a richness of landscapes during just a single day. Two days are never the same. Deep forests alternate with extensive heaths and waving fields, the lakes offers beautiful variety and everywhere you meet the most magnificent views. Farm shops and inns add atmosphere on your way, says Ivan who is happy to share his favourite tour with the readers. Follow his suggestions on the map and look forward to new experiences. Make a stop by Knudhule Beach or have a drink or a bite to eat at Knudhule Badehotel, sense the presence of history on Sky Mountain (and have an ice cream), and climb the mountain Sukkertoppen (The Sugar Loaf).
