Go wild in Lille Vildmose

In the surroundings of Lille Vildmose you can go for a shaky walk in the wet bog, where the flesh-eating plant ‘Drosera’ grows. No need to panic, though, as the ‘Drosera’ only grows a few centimetres tall, feeding on small flies, mosquitos and spiders. In the sky above the bog you have plenty of possibilities of seeing the golden eagle gliding over the hunting ground, as the bog is the cradle of this golden eagle.

The peat train in Lille Vildmose

As a new activity you can go for a train ride in the bog. The trip starts at Møllesøgaard platform, passing by the wild boars’ pen and the oxes, to Birkesø, turns and go back to the platform.
