Hiking around Knudsø
The beautiful landscape of Søhøjlandet (the Lake Highlands) opens everywhere for magnificent views. Small oases with tables and benches invite to coffee breaks. The path is 9 km long, and it is possible to take a nice swim at Knudhule Beach or Sdr. Ege on your way.
On your hike, it's important to follow the map, as the trail isn't marked all the way. See map here.
The area's impressive hills and deep valleys were formed by natural forces during the last ice agea and Knudsø is up to 30 meters deep. A local angler can report that an ancient European catfish at almost 300 kilograms live in one of the lake's deep holes. Unfortunately, it is not yet succeeded someone to take a picture.
It is more realistic to photograph some of the many birds at sea and in the beautiful skies over Søhøjandet (the Lake Highlands).
