Bikerides into Nature

The meadows Skjern Enge are a paradise for kids and adults.

There are plenty of routes to travel into this huge natural area via the established bike paths.

This area is part of the 110 km or 68 mi cycling tour ’Around Ringkøbing Fjord’. Ringkøbing Fjord, where there are plenty of exciting places to go and adventures to be had, is one of Denmark’s most beautiful natural areas: this includes Skjern Enge and the river Skjern Å, with their bird watching towers and cable ferries, Lønborg Church at Borgbanken, Lønborggård – an old episcopal residence, and Bork Harbour, as well as Bork Viking Harbour. Further into the meadows, you will find Værneengene and Tipperne, which are some of the most wonderful and peculiar natural areas in Denmark.
