Læsø has a fantastic, varied nature with many differnet hiking routes. As an island located in the middle of the Kattegat Sea, the coastline offers plenty of opportunities for a walk with a view of the ocean, each one of them a treat for a hiker. The sound of the crashing waves and the feeling of the fresh wind in your face is a balm for the soul.

But Læsø also offers hiking routes in different terrains. On the northern part of the island, you will find Læsø Klitplantage (dune plantation), where you can take a walk in the coniferous forest and on the heaths. On the southern part of the island, you can experience the nature of Rønnerne and enjoy the history of the old salt works.
To the east, you find tall dune areas and heathers at Jegens, Danzigmann and Bløden Hale. And to the west, the nature is spotted with small lakes and small dunes along the beach.

The island is littered with magical walks for the whole family as well as quiet heart trails with possible rests along the routes.

The seasoned hiker can choose to walk the entire circumference of Læsø on the long camino route, which takes you along the Læsø coastline, 66 km. You can read about the different routes below, and download maps and detailed information which may be useful during your trip.
