Sønderjylland has several hiking trails that are ideal for this type of holiday. The most well-known is probably the Gendarme Path, which is a European Leading Quality Trail, and with its 84 km is perfect for a hike lasting 5-7 days.
The path follows Flensburg Fjord and leads you through an attractive, varied landscape with undulating beech forests and flat salt marshes. Most of the route lies away from roads and motorised traffic, so both you and your dog can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside.
Sønderjylland’s latest hiking route, the Marskstien - Marsh Trail, is also ideal. This European Quality Trail is 54 km long and runs through Denmark’s largest area of marshland, Tøndermarsken.
Along both routes you can find shelters, B&Bs and small hotels where dogs are welcome. You can even book a package tour in which overnight accommodation, food and luggage transport are all included.
