Hiking is a fantastic way to experience the diverse nature of the Danish countryside, but we must ask you to respect the nature and not to litter. Keep your dog on a leash and considerate of the local wildlife. You are allowed to pick berries, flowers and mushrooms as long as you leave the protected species alone.
