We have been 14 days at Læsø a Danish island 30 km. out of Frederikshavn. We want to tell a little about the general vacation on the island and the activities that are found there. The island has about 2,200 residents, but in summertime up to 110,000 tourists is visiting.
Læsø is about 20 km long and half the size in wide. There are many bike ways and very nice to bike on (the highest point is about 45 meters). The island is best for those who want a quiet calm, swimming, cycle type of vacation. For those who like cities and a lot of activities in the holiday season, this is not the place. There is not much traffic, and in general by peaceful surroundings. To get to the island we had to take a boat to Frederikshavn and then take another boat back out to the island.
The tast of Læsø ‘s jomfruhummer ( Nephrops norvegicus – Norway lobster ).
We cannot have been on the island without having tasted on the island’s major export item namely jomfruhummeren (Norway lobster). And we had some luck and got to taste a fresh black lobster as well, even if it was not entirely in the season yet.
We end this series with some photos of the island. And will eventually recommend people who want a vacation with content; quiet, relaxing, great activities for children, swimming, great scenery, good food and an entire island that is really designed for tourists and especially families with children.
Wonderful nature of Læsø.
The island’s highest point at 45 meters.
