Hiking with shepherd, dogs and sheep

Join the hike and experience the fantastic interaction between the shepherd, the dogs and the sheep, see how the dogs are trained to be able to drive around with the flock of sheep.

On Præstbjerg moor, tourists and groups as well as others are offered to join a 2-3 hour hike with shepherd, dogs and sheep.

You will gain unique knowledge about nature care and what it means when the shepherd walks with the sheep and gets help from the skilled and intelligent shepherd dogs Border Collier.

There are tools available to help you cut down broom plants, which are covering the heath in several places.

It is a fantastically beautiful natural area, and the shepherd also tells about rare plants in the area as well as the rich wildlife you can experience, such as deer, beavers, foxes, birds and birds of prey, etc.

It is possible to eat a packed lunch. Or you can order a dinner where we fry lamb over a campfire.

Bring your own drinks, except coffee, which we provide.

It is also shown how the hose grocers walked on the heath with their hand toes and with knitting, where they knit directly from the raw wool.

Knitting is very popular, but knitting directly with raw wool is a new technique where you do not have to map and spin.

Knitting is a great tool for mindfullnes, patience and to de-stress, from a busy day
