Northern Fyn's unique experiences
The sea eagle is increasingly returning to Denmark after its extinction, and there are more and more registered every year. It is still extremely rare though, and only a handful on the folk high school have ever seen the sea eagle, but it lives in the district of northern Fyn, so if you are lucky you might see it.
A real remain from the viking age is located really close to the folk high school. We are talking about Glavendrupstenen which you can find in Glavendruplunden. The stone is raised about year 900 by Ragnhild, and has Denmark's longest rune inscription which contains the secret of why the stone is raised. If you want to find out why the stone is raised in a shipwreck of 60m long and 12m wide, then you should go and explore the area of Glavendruplunden.
The Kattegat's living tides invite you to a unique nature-experience, after two kilometers of hiking through the sea you come to the deserted island, Æbelø. The island has been protected for many years, so there is a guarantee of a completely unique nature-experience, where you get really close to the unaffected nature. You can e.g. see fallow deer and mouflons, which live freely on the island. If you take a walk along the coastline, you get an experience of the passage of time, as you can see large old beech trees, which have fallen with the erosion of the dunes. Æbelø thus provides a unique experience that gives reason to think about life's big questions.
