Nørreskoven – a cycle tour on island Als
The cycle route through the beautiful Als forest landscape is approx. 16 km and begins at the square in Guderup. The path takes you through some lovely nature areas in the forest and along the coast, which are accessible only by bicycle or on foot.
You will find the route rather varied with both asphalt and unpaved roads, and in a few places you will need to walk your bicycle. The route can be completed in one hour but it is recommended that you allow 2-3 hours in order to stop at some of the wonderful places you will find along the way. This is also a route, rich in cultural treasures. Elstrup Mill is a local landmark situated on high ground and in the forest Nørreskoven you will come across ancient long barrows, castle mounds and castle ruins.
During your trip, you can observe forest birds such as chaffinches, nuthatches and wrens. In April, the forest floor is full of anemones and in May, the meadows are full of orchids.
In addition, if you take a ride on a warm summer evening in May or June, you may be fortunate enough to hear a choir of green tree frogs or natterjack toads at Fjordmosen, here the raven is often seen.
