Sleeping in a tent is free, easy and convenient, but what are the rules?
It’s a little complex, and then it’s not. Let us guide you.
As a rule, it is not allowed to sleep in a tent in the countryside. BUT - The Danish Nature Agency has designated a large number of forests throughout the country for wild camping. There are the following forests in the Coastal Land:
- Skablund Forest on the north side of Horsens Fjord.
- Bjerre Forest, Rold Forest, and Boller Nederskov at Bjerrelide south of Horsens Fjord.
- Sebberup Forests, Ussinggård Forests and Kær Forest north of Hedensted.
- Grund Forest on the north side of Vejle Fjord.
Furthermore, there are a large number of nature camp sites where you can pitch your tent - some are free, while others charge a fee.
It is only allowed to sleep in tents in privately owned forests if you have a special permit from the owner.
It is not allowed to pitch a tent on the beach.
Both in public forests and on the beach, sleeping on the forest floor is allowed, but not in a tent. A sleeping bag or hammock is ok. The basic rule is that you must have a clear view of the stars.
Find tent sites and forests where you can pitch your tent on the map above. Remember also that almost all campsites have the option of sleeping in a tent.
Most of the area’s campsites offer accommodation in wooden cabins at cheap prices. It’s fun and you get access to all the campsite’s facilities.
