On a forest walk in the Langesø forest
When your family wants a trip to the forest, Langesø Forest on North Funen is the perfect place for your outing all year round!
- Pack snacks and cold fruit juice or hot cocoa and coffee.
- Take a walk in the fantastic Langesø Forest under the tall trees.
- Print a forest bingo card before the trip and see if you can find all the items
- Enjoy a delicious burger at Cafe Victoria with a view of the forest.
- Try a boat ride or a bison safari afterward.
Start the day by preparing a packed lunch or packing snacks and bring cold fruit juice or hot cocoa and coffee, depending on the season.
Then, you're ready for a delightful trip around the vast Langesø Forest, where there are impressively tall trees. For example, you can walk along the lake that gave the forest its name. Lake Langesø (which means the long lake) is 1300 meters long and 200 meters wide, and you can go around the lake on a 3 km hiking trail, enjoying the beautiful view and the tranquility under the trees.
Print a forest bingo card from visitnordfyn.dk's nature bingo page and see if you can spot all the items that belong in the forest. Remember to take pictures instead of picking flowers and plants, so the forest stays just as beautiful.
There are benches along the way where you can enjoy your snacks and drinks.
MTB in Langesø Forest
