Pan OutVentures: Gendarmstien (The Border Guard Tr

Walking along the Gendarmstien, it’s easy imagining the gendarmes keeping eyes and ears open as they patrolled on foot, moving across the steep cliffs and deep forests and flat beaches. Their job was to catch dangerous smugglers illegally moving goods in and out of the country to avoid paying customs duty, which for centuries was one of Denmark’s main sources of income. 

The Gendarmstien is the only trail in Denmark that is certified as being a “Leading Quality Trail (LQT) – Best of Europe”. All of the attractive LQT-certified routes are recognised for their high quality, ensuring that walkers enjoy a unique experience of wildlife and countryside. The paths are also governed by a number of regulations that require natural footways, maintenanceand path signs.
