This Gigantic Spiral Path Allows You to Walk Above the Treetops in Denmark

An incredible and creatively designed nature observatory called Camp Adventure is located about one hour south of Copenhagen, Denmark, in the preserved forest of Gisselfeld Klosters Skove.

The forest itself is privately owned but open to the public until sunset and is home to water cliffs, lakes and wetlands. It’s also a hilly region, which is very unusual in the area.

The walk will be 600 meters in total and there will be plenty of rest stops along the way where people can learn more about their surroundings. At the end of the walk will be a magnificent 45-meter spiraling observation tower.

A sturdy walking bridge, about 3000 feet long, was built to wind through the forest until the path eventually ends at the foot of a 148-foot tall observation tower. This tower looks like a spiral ramp that stretches above the trees. The Treetop Experience includes two different paths, one that allows you to stay on the ground and another high route that winds through the canopy of the trees, allowing visitors to look down on the forest below.

The higher path passes through the oldest parts of the forest, while the tower and the lower paths are located in the younger areas. The high walkway also features a variety of activities that teach visitors about the forest.

In 2017 after Camp Adventure was completed, the studio behind the project “EFEKT”, won the ICONIC Award for “Visionary Architecture.”

In addition to the breathtaking views of the forest and nearby lakes, creeks and wetlands, Camp Adventure also offers many other activities, including zip lines and an existing adventure sports facility.
