Beautiful forests just waiting to be explored

The area of Boller and Bjerrelide south of Horsens is home to many forests all in a row. Kærskoven Forest and Dallerup Forest are less famous than most of them but still very much worth a visit. The forests are not very big but in immediate continuation each other, and they can easily be combined for an excursion.


On a hike through the forest

You can explore the forest on an approximately 6.5-kilometre-long roundtrip on foot. It primarily consists of beech wood, but you will face changing landscapes as you make your way around. There are also small stretches of conifer, oak, glades, moor, and a forest lake.

If you wish to visit the forests, you can park at the small parking lot between the two forests on Ørnstrupvej. You can also park in the western outskirts of Kærskoven on Kærsholmvej, very close to the main road, Vejlevej. Not far from there, in the middle of Kærskoven, you will get to the little forest lake Latsø with tables, benches, and a fire ring. It is possible to enjoy your packed lunch here. You are allowed to sleep in a tent on the forest bed in Kærskoven in case you wish to sleep outside.

The route is not waymarked. You can follow the route around the forest with your smartphone using the Coastal Land digital map. Here, you can also see the location of the parking lots.


The dog forest in Kærskoven

At the western edge of Kærskoven, close to the parking lot, there is a big fenced-in dog forest where dogs can run freely. The rest of the forest is also well-suited for hikes with dogs but here dogs must be kept on leash.
