Vestbirk Camping

In the picturesque area south of the Silkeborg Lakes, you find this caravan site surrounded by the waters of the river Gudenå on three sides. The site is quite large and has excellent facilities, but still manages to be cosy and peaceful with lots of room for relaxation in the nature.

Caravan holiday for the whole family

Elite Camp Vestbirk is located in some of the most beautiful nature at the river Gudenå. With its many options for activities, it is the perfect choice for families with children. The caravan site was made with the philosophy that when the children are happy and enjoying themselves, there is a basis for parents and grandparents to relax and enjoy their holiday. And there are certainly optimal conditions for both relaxation and entertainment.

The children can run straight to the heated swimming pool for a dip and reach top speed in the water slide. Once dry, they can head for the football fields, the basket court or the crazy golf course. On the way, they can pet goats and horses, admire the fallow deer in the deer park or stop by one of the well-equipped playgrounds.

The large nature areas call for hikes around the site, and children can take their parents’ hand and go for a walk at the lake shore. If you packed your fishing rod, take it for a swing and see if you can catch tonight’s dinner.

While the children are having a blast, parents ought to unwind in sauna, solarium or massage chair.

The sanitary conditions are of course impeccable and there are excellent kitchen- and bathroom facilities. Oh.. and there is also a family room, playrooms and modern changing tables in the rest rooms. There is certainly nothing missing at Vestbirk Camping.


The wonderful surroundings

It will be hard to find a more scenic location for a caravan site than Vestbirk Camping. The site is placed between two of the Vestbirk lakes thar are a part of the river Gudenå. One of Denmark’s most popular nature attractions, The Uncovered Bridge, is only a few hundred metres away, and so is the popular bicycle/hiking route, The Nature Path Horsens-Silkeborg. In the forested nature, there are great conditions for many outdoor activities on land as well as on water.

And even though you are in the middle of the deep nature, you are never far away from the big cities and attractions of Eastern Jutland.


Rent a canoe and explore the Gudenå

At Vestbirk Camping you get the opportunity to rent a canoe and go sailing on the most beautiful part of Danmark’s only river, Gudenå. Canoeing on this part of the Gudenå is always with the current, in a northward direction, and the price include either drop-off or pick-up of the canoe. So you can choose to sail either to or from the caravan site. Canoeing on the Gudenå is a great idea for a memorable daytrip for campers or other interested.

Alternatively, consider renting a boat and row around the Vestbirk Lakes.


If you do not have your own caravan

No problem! At Vestbirk Camping you can rent a caravan, glamping tent or cabin. The charming wooden cabins come in different sizes – all with great facilities.
