Join us on a full day trip south of Copenhagen to the amazing Tree Tower.

”How does one measure the greatness of a place?” Times Magazine added this place on their 100 greatest places list in 2019. The Camp Adventure Forest Tower located in the picturesque South Zealand area gives a unique nature experience, from where you on the 3 km path in eye level can study the trees from the forest floor to the tree crowns. On sunny days you will from the top of the Forest Tower be able to see the Oresund Bridge, Turning Torso in Malmö and parts of the Copenhagen skyline.
