The Danish society for Nature Conservation stands behind the idea of The Path of Gods.
The inspiration came from a Danish author Martin A. Hansen, who wrote about a trail system about 64 kilometres long which goes from Mosede Fort to Vellerup Vig in Zealand, Denmark,
Martin A. Hansen did a thesis that ‘There has been a trade road, an army road and a path of Gods from Koege Bay to the Isefjord through wetlands, bogs, meadows, fields and forests.
Not just one for wheelbarrow or horseback riding, but a range of roads changing from century to millennium.
There are trails for the first burial mounds builders, the masters of the stone age monuments, there are the bronze age mounds, and finally the abode and grave grounds of the Iron Age and Viking age.’
# Lethrica, The Historical Associations in Lejre Municipality.
I had some very fascinating walks in an area enriched by history and great beauty. My walks continued over a year and became a beautiful journey in time and place.
‘Back in my drawers’ I found this video from some parts of the path of Gods.
Relax for four minutes and don’t expect wonders 🙂 apart from the music!
The domain Naturvandring-dk, is no longer mine!
