The Forest Tower at Camp Adventure is an experience like no other. The tower’s upper platform is located 135 meters above sea level, making it the highest accessible point on Zealand.
From the top, you can see for 25 km across the South Zealand landscape, and if you look north on a clear day, you can actually see all the way to the bridge Øresundsbroen, the Turning Torso in Malmo, as well as parts of the Copenhagen skyline.
A trip up the Forest Tower is a unique experience where nature can be seen from new angles. The trip out to the tower is also an experience in itself, as it involves a 900 m long boardwalk with several “pauses” and platforms along the way, where you have ample opportunity to enjoy the beautiful views. Along the boardwalk, you will be able to see the largest climbing park in Denmark, when Camp Adventure’s many treetop courses are used far above your head.
When you arrive at the Forest Tower, the 650 metre spiralling ramp winds up to the top of the tower. You have the opportunity to experience nature and the trees in a whole new way – at eye level and up close. At the top of the Forest Tower, the unique experience culminates in a 360° view of the South Zealand landscape.

For architecture enthusiasts, the Forest Tower is undoubtedly a “must-see”. The unique structure was designed by EFFEKT Architects, and has won several international awards, including a first place at the 2017 ICONIC Awards – the Visionary Architecture and Finale World Architecture Festival 2017 – even before its opening. The structure is a hyperboloid shape, which consists of long vertical steel pipes that have not been bent, but rather rotated 120° in order to obtain the Forest Tower’s contoured hourglass shape.
Camp Adventure takes glamping to new heights. Spend the night in a Mongolian yurt with a view of the lake and thousands of pine trees. As a finishing touch, as an overnight guest, you can access the award-winning Forest Tower at sunrise and sunset. The luxurious tents are heated, have their own terraces, large baths and double beds with a view of the stars. Can be booked all year round.
Get stuck into Denmark’s largest climbing course, with no less than ten obstacle courses zigzagging through the green beech forest at Camp Adventure. There are cable cars, nets, swings and lots of other challenges in the heights – perfect for a little climber.
An army marches on its stomach. After a windy day on the climbing courses or a trip to the top of the Forest Tower, hunger strikes. At Camp Adventure’s street food market, you can refuel with everything from burgers to Indian classics and delicious coffee at the small, cosy food stalls.
Poppies, cornflowers and honeysuckle. Colourful flowers abound in Northern Europe’s largest pick-your-own flower field in the summer. The ten-hectare field is divided into colour-coordinated areas, separated by rows of sunflowers, which lure in buzzing bees and butterflies in droves. In the winter, you can buy your Christmas tree to take home from Camp Adventure.
