Enjoy the nature along the blue of the sea

The Odder Coast covers all of 70 kilometres coastline, waiting to be explored by adventurous nature lovers. For example, try walking from Hou to Saksild on the 8-kilometre stretch of uninterrupted sandy beach. A joy to the eye, we’d like to point out. Or the wheelchair accessible Kyststien ved Hou.

On the car-free island of Tunø, you can take the 8-kilometer walk along the coastline with a treasure map in your hand. If you manage the hardships and solve the tasks on your walk around the island, you receive a medal that will forever remind you of your achievement.

We also recommend a hike around the Gyllingnæs peninsula at the inlet of Horsens Fjord.

Immerse yourself in the many local forests

Get far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and let your heart rate slow down in one of Odder's many small forests. A stone's throw from Odder, there are several forests with routes worth exploring. For example, in Rathlousdal Forest you can see a beautiful old manor house and a bear grotto which is a remnant of an old zoo.

At Sondrup, you can experience a beautiful hilly landscape covered with forest. At Sondrup Plantation and in the hills of Sondrup/Uldrup Bakker, several vantage points and routes take you through the impressive scenery. In addition, the vantage point, Udsigtshøjene, near Trustrup provide a magnificent view of the fjord.

The route gives a good insight into the town of Odder and, if you are only spending a single day in the town, following the Heart Association's route is a safe choice.
