Geopark Odsherred has been admitted as Denmark’s very first Geopark to the International and UNESCO subsidized Global Geoparks Network.
The Odsherred Peninsula landscape, situated about 100 kilometers west of Copenhagen, was formed only 17.000 years ago during the latter part of the Weichselian era. The Odsherred arches are key localities to understanding the principles of glacial landscape formations from this period. They are also a classic geomorphological example of glacial depressions, end moraines and melt-water flood plains. The glacial series of Odsherred, with its variety of distinct shapes, is surrounded by the sea to the east, north and west.
Geopark Odsherred also works with sustainable (social, environmental and economic) business development. This applies not only to tourism, but also to the development of new products and concepts. For example, the development of local foods, which is the result of the special conditions (soil, climate and location).
Several wineries have great success with the production of quality wines, eg Vejhøj Vingaard with its south-facing slopes has the optimal conditions for growing and producing wines. Guided tours and tastings can be arranged.
Dansk Tang (Danish Seaweed) also springs from the landscape of the area. Here, for example, seaweed safaris and other bespoke events are offered for business.
Both the wildly growing and locally produced are introduced, used and served at the Wild Kitchen. From here you can also arrange trips for groups with Silva Danica, where in addition to walks in the countryside, wild herbs, berries, mushrooms and more are harvested.
See also Natur Kok which also offers tours where teambuilding and wild game food are the focal point.
