A kid-friendly walk in #Fjordlandet! Selsø Møllekrog - a smaller but beautiful and not busy distance to walk with the kids (or others who aren’t up for a long trip 😊) #Møllekrogen lies between Skibby and Selsø, and is a small wild and beautiful spot, where there is a hiking route along the fjord, with a look to Roskilde. Tip: park either at Selsøvej 24 or by Selsø Church where you can walk at #trampestien to Møllekrogen - a walk of approx. 1.4km. 🙏🏻👍🏻👟🥾

Have a walk along #skjoldungestien in the great Bidstrup Forests which are part of Skovhøjlandet, Zealand's second largest forest area. The forests are varied with hills and open exaggerations. Here is the opportunity for lots of outdoor activities - together but keeping distance :) Thanks for Sharing @jacob_nyborg 👍🏻

Thousands of tufted ducks arrive at Roskilde Fjord every winter. They stay here until spring, when they fly back north to their breeding sites. During the daytime, the ducks will rest at the lake, Kattinge Sø! Go watch them around sunset. An hour after sunset, the ducks will fly in huge numbers towards Roskilde Fjord, where they go to eat molluscs, worms, aquatic insects and some plants. It is a quite amazing site, when they fly out for dinner – the phenomenon is called ‘black moon’ by the locals. Thanks to @nationalparkskjoldungernesland 👍🏻
