To the south are the large salt meadows Rønnerne, where the size of the huge area is indicated by scattered pine plantations on the horizon. Even more characteristic is the large Wadden Sea area, Fjæren, which in an up to 5-kilometer-wide belt encircles the entire southern Læsø. The Wadden Sea is sprinkled with meter-large boulders, and can at times be dry as far as the eye can see.
You can safely go far out on both Rønnerne (however, you are not allowed to enter the area west of Hornfiskrønsvejen from April 16th to July 15th) and Fjæren, as long as you have the strength to walk back again. The tides in the Kattegat does not vary much (only 20 cm). On this Wadden Sea area, it is the wind that determines whether the sand is dry or under water - usually with 5-20 cm of water.
If you want to experience Rønnerne with a guide, you may join a trip with Rønnerbussen and hear an exciting story about the landscape, nature, and how Saltsyderiet picks up the salty water for their salt production - and maybe taste the yellow meadow ant. Definitely a trip worth experiencing!
Other Unique Natural Areas
There are many other places on the island with varied and beautiful nature. Perhaps a trip to Horneks Odde to watch seals and find amber? Or a trip to Stokken to either swim or collect mussels? The possibilities are many on Læsø – here we have collected an overview of the unique nature areas.
