400 hectares of varied forest and bog. The largest untouched forest in Denmark offers a unique opportunity to see how forests looked like a thousand years ago.
Draved Forest is one of the best developed natural forests, where the untouched parts are reminiscent of primeval forest. This is partly due to the fact that it has been well sheltered by the surrounding, hard-to-reach bogs, like Kongens Mose. The area has lots of old, dead and decaying trees that offer an abundance of food and nesting sites. 198 species of birds have been registered, 113 of them as breeding. Among the birds you can encounter are Cuckoo, Snipe, Woodcock, Eagle Owl, Tawny Owl, Bluethroat, Red-backed Shrike, Great Grey Shrike, Eurasian Hobby, Black Woodpecker, Lesser Spotted Woodpecker and Eurasian Green Woodpecker.
One larger parking lot on Dravedskovvej and another smaller one on Teltkrovej. Click on the P in the map to get directions. The circular walk indicated on the map is about 7,5 km long.
Bring wellies, the forest is untouched and not drained so at times the trail is partially flooded. It is not advisable to go into the moors without a local guide.
