The Danish cycling event Hærvejsløbet - The Viking Gran Fondo is now also L'Etape Denmark by Tour de France. Your challenging and unforgettable ride back through history.
It's a fascinating mix of physical challenges for your inner Viking, historical sights and beautiful landscapes at every turn of the pedals.
You are going on an unforgettable ride from A to B along the natural ridge that was formed through Jutland during the last ice age. Here, an ancient road – Hærvejen – has, over the centuries, helped migrants, pilgrims, merchants and Vikings stay dry as they made their way through Denmark.
You need to bring out your inner Viking to overcome the challenging routes and the steep climbs. The route also offers you plenty of opportunities to enjoy the ride with beautiful landscapes and our famous feeding stations.
There are 5 challenging and beautiful routes to choose from.
