An amazing treetop walkway connected to a 148ft-tall spiral observation tower has finally opened in a forest in Denmark.
It’s part of the Camp Adventure Climbing Park, one hour south of Copenhagen on the island of Zealand, which at 18 acres is the largest woodland adventure park in Denmark.
The hourglass-shaped tower is the first of its kind in Scandinavia and allows visitors to get closer to nature.

It has 10 climbing courses that all vary in height and visitors can move from tree to tree via different obstacles or zip lines – two of them being the longest zip lines in Denmark.
The winding 650-metre-long (2,130ft) twisted ramp, which includes looping pathways and bleacher seating, provides a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of the forest and can accommodate 10,000 people at a time.
The tower’s top platform is 135 meters (442ft) above sea level and is the highest available point in Zealand.
As reported by MailOnline Travel in 2017, the concept was Devised by Danish company EFFEKT.

The vision behind the boardwalk project was to make the forest accessible to everyone without disrupting the environment.
It has been built from materials selected from the forest itself, such as felled trees, and designers ensured that the structure would blend in with historic woodland.
According to the project’s official site: ‘The geometry of the tower is shaped to enhance the visitor experience.
‘It shuns the typical cylindrical shape in favour of a curved profile with a slender waist and enlarged base and crown.’
It adds that ‘the ramp keeps a fixed gradient, while the geometry and spacing of the ramp fluctuates according to the changing curvature’.
