Spiral-shaped walking bridge gives you a bird’s-eye view of the forest
Ever wonder what it’d be like to be perched high up in a tree, like a bird? Well, now you can spread your wings at a really cool new observation tower, about an hour south of Copenhagen, Denmark.
Camp Adventure, nestled in the preserved forest of Gisselfeld Klosters Skove, is home to a 2000-foot walking bridge that gradually spirals up 150 feet into the air for panoramic views of the treetops.
The website describes it as: “A seamless continuous ramp that makes the forest accessible to all – regardless of their physical condition.”
Camp Adventure offers two different paths. If you want to soar through the forest, you can hop on the bridge and walk through the canopy of trees until you reach the top of the hourglass-shaped observation tower.
According to the website, “The geometry of the tower is shaped to enhance the visitor experience, shunning the typical cylindrical shape in favor of a curved profile with a slender waist and enlarged base and crown. This does not only increase the stability of the tower but also increases the observation deck area at the top of the tower. Furthermore, it also allows for better contact with the forest canopy.”
If you’re not comfortable with heights, there’s a ground trail as well, but you won’t be able to see the oldest part of the forest from it. The high walkway also features a variety of activities that teach visitors about the forest.
Camp Adventure also offers numerous other activities, including zip lines and an existing adventure sports facility.
While soaking up the breathtaking views of the forest may seem like enough, there’s also nearby lakes, creeks and wetlands to explore.
