This hike is for food-lovers who want to taste specialties and delicacies from Stevns. The food is served in magnificent scenery with panoramic views of the cliff, sea and sky!
Stevns Klint is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Just a 1 hour drive from Copenhagen is the small, cozy fishing village of Rødvig. This is where our approx. 8 km culinary hike starts.
At the harbor, your guide, Anne Rosell Holt, will give you a warm welcome and introduce you to lovely Stevns while enjoying the first tasting.
Afterwards we hike along the peaceful Stevns Klint trail. There are fantastic views of the cliff’s steep slopes and over the Baltic Sea.
In Boesdal Quarry, passionate chef Jens Hansen has prepared a fantastic lunch based on fresh ingredients from producers from Stevns. Jens works intuitively and creatively with the ingredients of the season, which is why lunch will vary from trip to trip.
Moving on we will pass the underground Stevnsfort Cold War Museum. It is carved out of the limestone beneath us. After Anne has given you a vivid account of the fort, the tour continues in silence for an hour. When you treat yourself to peace and presence with nature, you can experience peace of mind and body.
The next great experience awaits in Højerup. Stevns Klint is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in line with the Great Barrier Reef and the Pyramids. The title of World Heritage Site is due to the thin layer of ash in the cliff. This ash tells the story of how an asteroid 66 million years ago hit the earth and wiped out the dinosaurs and much other life. However, several dramas have taken place in this place, which the partially ruined Højerup Old Church testifies.
While Anne tells the dramatic stories about the ash, the church and the viking Stevn, you will taste the drink of wisdom for the Nordic Gods: Mead.
The hike ends with panoramic views of Stevns and the Baltic Sea from the top of Stevns Lighthouse.
A bus will transport us back to Rødvig.
This is a feel-good tour where you:
- can experience Stevns Klint’s magnificent coastline and history as well as the silence
- can taste local specialties from Stevns prepared by a gourmet chef
- get a unique quality experience with friendly hosts from Stevns
Jens is a gourmet chef. Jens has a huge love for food and the kitchen is his playground. He works intuitively and creatively with the ingredients offered by the season, which is why his menus are always unique to each event. He purchases the vegetables, herbs and meat from local farmers and buys beverages from microbreweries. In this way, local stories are linked to all the food he prepares. He loves giving people a very special culinary experience.
Anne is your guide on the trip and she is dedicated to giving people good experiences in nature, where the main emphasis is on well-being and “hygge”. Anne loves Stevns for the unpretentious atmosphere and peacefulness.
