Follow the steps of the Vikings
In the area by Fyrkat Ensøg and Onsild Ådal, there is another great walking path called "Fyrkatstien" that connects the nature area with the center of Hobro.
In the Viking Age Mariager Fjord went all the way out to the viking fortress Fyrkat. Today there is more land than water in the area, but the trail "Fyrkatstien" follows the old waterway, so when you are walking on the trail, try to imagine how the big Viking ships sailed on the fjord directly to Fyrkat.
The entire trail has signs marked "Fyrkatstien" so it is easy to follow without a map.

The Ancient Road and the Mariagerfjord-route
Combine the walking trail with a nice bike ride on The Ancient Road and the popular Mariagerfjord-Route 32. Both routes pass by Fyrkat.
