Mountain biking

The western part of Jutland is home to some of the best and most demanding routes for mountain biking in Denmark. Varde Municipality has eleven of them.

You can experience top class mountain biking in six different areas: Blåbjerg Klitplantage, Bordrup Klitplantage, Søndre Plantage, Sønder Heden Plantage, Ølgod Byskov and Ansager Plantage.
