Funky Monkey Park
Funky Monkey Park presents wonderful experiences and tricky challenges for visitors of all ages, with nine climbing courses and sixteen zip wires secured among the trees at heights from 50 cm to 15 metres. The different tracks and courses present a host of challenges – fully 86 different obstacles with various levels of difficulty.
Located in Odense, Funky Monkey Park is the perfect destination for all the family. Choose the courses that best suit your mood, courage and desire to tackle challenges. Let the little ones (age 3 and up) start with the obstacles positioned just 50 cm above the ground, and then decide how high you yourself dare to climb.
Egeskov is the place to go for all kinds of entertaining challenges for young and old alike. In the old beech woods that surround the delightful castle grounds, thrill-seekers can take a 100-metre stroll 10–15 metres up in the air, sauntering nonchalantly from one treetop to the next. You can also test your skills on Egeskov’s 1,000 m2 mooncar track, where children and the young at heart can head off around the circuit on their own or with a partner.
Fancy a walk in the woods – 12 metres up in the air? Come along, enjoy the view and go exploring among the treetops high above Odense ZOO. Bøgetoppen is the name of a 250-metre walk from one treetop to the next at a height of 6–12 metres, with magnificent views out over Odense Zoo, the nearby houses and, of course, the enchanting beech woods.
The walk takes you from tree to tree via aerial walkways and platforms firmly anchored to the sturdy tree trunks. The route features a total of ten platforms, the highest of which is fully 12 metres above ground level. As you make your way along Bøgetoppen, you can learn a bit about the Danish countryside and find out more about the plants and animals that live at the top and bottom of the trees.
Are you up for some fast-paced fun? Then you’ll be sure to have a great time at Segway Langeland, where you can test your skills on the wacky 2-wheelers on our 17,000 sqm Segway track. Children and adults can tackle the track together – although it’s best if children are at least 115 cm tall.
Our skilled instructors will give you a detailed introduction to how to ride a Segway, to ensure you feel full of confidence and ready to have a great time. After the introduction, it’s time to hit the track, where you have every opportunity to challenge yourselves – and one another. Your Segway Langeland instructor will be right nearby throughout your ride.
Ride the trail with horse and prairie wagon
Settle down behind the horses, grab hold of the reins and relax. Really, really relax. A holiday with horse and prairie wagon is not the thrill-ride often depicted in spaghetti westerns, but it is packed with quality time for young and old alike. In the prairie wagon, around the camp fire or during the work with your trusty four-legged companions. The horses set the pace for your journey, which will take you all over the beautiful countryside of Southern Fyn.
South Fyn horse and prairie wagon hire is your ticket to an active holiday with a real difference. The prairie wagon has been set up as an authentic caravan with sleeping spaces for four people and a little cooking area, too.
Bison safari at Ditlevsdal Bison Farm
Experience authentic prairie ambience among Ditlevsdal’s 500 or so American bison. Children and adults alike can jump up in the prairie wagon and take a guided safari trip out to the gentle giants. On the trip, the guide will talk about bison behaviour and life on the farm.
And how about a bite of bison meat? Ditlevsdal Bison Farm has its own restaurant and farm shop, where you can buy bison meat from the farm’s own herd. The bison farm also has an outdoor “Indian track”, where children and the young at heart can test their balancing skills.
With GoBoat you can become your own captain in Odense Habor. Put on the captain’s hat and take the whole family boating.
