Follow the pathway ”Skansestien” north to Strandegård Dyrehave, a lovely old forest, where many of the 2-300 year old and twisted oaks and beeches are protected. The forest ends at the high cliffs, and it is obvious from the crashed trees on the beach below, that the sea, at high tide and storm, takes a small part of the cliffs. Start the trip from Skansestien behind Strandegård (where there is a signed parking space) or take the car via Dyrehavevej toward Faxe Ladeplads and use the parking space west of the forest (Follow the signs from Dyrehavevej).
No matter the time of year, a trip to Strandegårds Dyrehave is lovely. In the spring, with birds singing from above, the beautiful forest floor with violets and anemones is lovely, and during summer, we recommend a bicycle ride through the forest and onwards Skansestien along the rough coastline.
Enjoy your lunch and coffee in a clearing on the forest floor or from the ancient redoubts, where there is a magnificent view of Faxe bay. In the south part of the forest, towards the coast, lies a long barrow and four single barrows, telling the story of the area thousand of years ago. Troldhøjene lies close to the coast with a beautiful view of the sea, and in clear weather, it is possible to see all the way to Møn, Stevns Klint and Præstø.
If you arrive by car, you can park in the parking lot at Dyrehaven.
