Welcome to Staksrode Forest. 218 hectares of forest on the north side of Vejle Fjord dominated by old oak and beech growths and with a variety of different coniferous plants. Along the coast there are magnificent views and exciting walks. Here you can experience the dynamic coastline with the steep slopes where the forest is laid out as untouched forest - and perhaps be lucky and catch a glimpse of a guinea pig off the coast. The light-open forest and the calcareous clay base provide exciting plant growth with eg. blue anemone and several rare orchids. The route goes through very undulating lawns and is unsuitable for disabled people and prams. Follows the dramatic coast with eg. Large and small mountain fall and leads past the medieval ramparts Stagsevold. Many great views.

One of the wonderful places in Denmark. Water body is just at the foothills and the woods has easy hiking trails. Very good for people of all age groups. A must visit spot !
