After you’ve eaten breakfast at Hotel Arnkilhus Garni and prepared your packed lunch for the day, AT Taxi will pick you up and take you to the start of Gendarmstien in Skovby. From Skovby, the 21-km route runs through fields, woodland and along the coastline, thus offering plenty of views of the bay of Sønderborg Bugt.

Following completion of the day’s stage, you’ll be staying for a second night at Hotel Arnkilhus Garni. Once again, you can eat out at one of Sønderborg’s many restaurants.

Day 4 – distance 25 km

Breakfast is served in the dining room, where a packed lunch for the hike will also be provided. AT Taxi will then drive you back to Kragesand, where you ended the hike the previous day. From here, the route continues on Gendarmstien to Gråsten, where you can make a short detour into the town to see the royal palace at Graasten Slot. From Gråsten to Rinkenæs, which is the day’s final destination, the route runs through a varied landscape of beaches and fields. The night is spent at Benniksgaard Hotel, where dinner will be served in the hotel restaurant.

Day 5 – distance 21 km
