Every day Audebo Pumping Station dewaters the landscape of approximately 11.000 barrels of land. Via about 40 km of canals the water is lead into Audebo Pumping Station, from which about 16 million m3 is pumped into the ocean every year. The 2,3 km long dam at Audebo was finished in 1874.
The Pumping station is surrounded by beautiful nature. The bicycle route “Fjordstien” goes right by the pumping staition. Follow the route to take the cycling trip “Around the Isefjord with the 4 ferries”, which follows the coast of the Isefjord and is connected by four ferries.
Additionally, there are beautiful walking- and cycling routes on the peninsula Tuse Næs, south of the pumping station.
