2,3 km - The Fredskov Woods and the “Heart Path”

Routes of 3.5km or 2.3km - the “Heart Path” (Hjertestien) runs along the margins of Rudkøbing’s Fredskov woods. You can easily take a detour into the woods themselves and enjoy a picnic amongst the trees.

7 km - The “Heart Path”, the Archipelago Trail and two beautiful Beech Forests

A 7km walk - starting at the car park at Engdraget in Rudkøbing, you follow “the Heart Path” through attractively cultivated allotments. After passing the Danahus old peoples home you set your course west to join, via Voldstien and Strandbakken, the Archipelago Trail which winds along Kragholmvej to the woods at Horsehave.

05

3,3 km - Vestre Stigtehave

A 3.3km walk: Vestre Stigtehave is amongst Denmark’s most lovely beech forests. This woodland is the closet thing you will find to ancient forest on Langeland.

This route takes you through the trees and over low hills along wide forest tracks. Looking between the gnarled tree trunks you can enjoy a lovely view over the Great Belt to the Funen coast.

12 km - Around Langeland’s north tip and across the island at Stigtehaver

A 12km walk - the tour around the north tip of the island is one of Jette and Jesper’s favourite walks: two lighthouses, an old summer house colony and some of Denmark’s most beautiful beech woods are some of the attractions.
