Svendborg, Denmark – KID FRIENDLY – APPROX. 15KM.
Technical elements – some of them very technical! But also a lot of really nice flowy trail sections. There is both a blue and a red option, but sometimes also black and even orange for extreme…
Good descents, technical balance stuff over logs and a big smile!
The girls tried a little bit of the blue trail, which was good but maybe a little long, but you can just choose different sections. Furthermore they really liked cheering for mom, when she at some point did a descent very close to the main starting area.
As a family we stayed there for many hours. The weather was nice, and there is a huge outdoor table for enjoying meals and playing cards. The is also a small cabin-like thing, where you can sit nice and comfy, if the weather is not so good. Inside here they have arranged some electrical heaters, an electric kettle and a woodturning stove, so you have plenty of options to keep warm.
In this area there is also a place for fixing your bike with some tools and a pump, and furthermore they have a hose and some stands for washing your bike.
So it is really a great area, where things have been thought through.
Only thing is that there is an entrance fee for using the trails, but this is because, the trail is located in a private forests, and they have to pay a lot to rent it from the landlord.
But it is not that expensive (14€), and it is nice to support a trail like this. You cannot park your car (or van) right next to the trail, so there is a short transportation ride to and from the trail to a parking lot.
This parking lot is pretty exposed and not a very good place to stay with a van, but then again you have the really nice main area, where the trail starts.
