The beautiful countryside in the area offers many challenging outdoor activities, including cycling, mountain biking, hiking and golf on the 9- and 18-hole courses right next to the park.

The increasing popularity of Landal in Great Britain has also led to an increase in the number of British visiting our parks in Denmark, Belgium and the Netherlands”, states Thomas Heerkens, general director of Landal GreenParks.
