Event descriptionSummer holiday event on the lovely island of Laesoe (Læsø). Very fine for families as we offer a large selection of classes for all. We have one short and two long distances. The two long distances are in very challenging terrain. Our mapper is the same that has done the mapping for WMOC. There is time for participating in WMOC in eastern Denmark, and attend Laesoe 3-days before going to Sweden for the O-ring event.
Terrain descriptionTuesday 17th July: Laesoe Saltworks. Sprint map: 1:4.000, 2,5 m contours, revised 2018. Historical Center Laesoe Saltworks. Surrounding areas of marshland with lots of small details in lots of open space, some small groups of trees and plantation. Few tracks and footpaths. Few contours. Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th July: Laesoe Klitplantage. O-map: 1:10.000, but 1:7500 for the oldest classes. 2,5m contours revised 2018. Challenging and difficult landscape with a lot of inland dunes in open as well as in more overgrown areas. Some areas are very open forest. The contours vary from simple to very detailed. Few major forest roads and some small footpaths. In other areas more roads and small footpaths.
Training possibilitiesBefore going to Laesoe you can find 10 permant training courses in Northern Jylland by following this link: You can also go to WMOC in the week before or to Vikingedysten in the weekend before.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.A very unique nature is the prime attraction on Laesoe. The island is perfect for bike riding as it is rather flat and has only limited traffic. Many possibilities for horse riding, fishing. bathing and sailing.
