What we will do
  • We leave the port by coach and embark on a sightseeing tour of the lake district to admire the fertile hilly scenery dotted with lakes, gorges and deep fjords sculpted by glaciers.
  • We reach the town of Bryrup and get on a vintage steam train that puffs along part of the former Horsens-Bryrup-Silkeborg railway. We cross a beautiful wooded area for approximately 5 km admiring the succession of lakes flanking the railway from our windows. * The train stops at the station of Vrads where we can enjoy a delicious ice-cream, sip a coffee or try tasty local dishes made with the best ingredients in the restaurant inside the station. * After returning to Bryrup on our train, we continue by coach and stop off on top of Himmelbjerget (literally the Sky Mountain). It is only 147 metres above sea level but it is enough to be the tallest peak in Denmark!
  • From the top, we enjoy endless views including the forest, Julsø lake with its islands as far as the town of Laven on the opposite bank.
