The Best Outdoor Obstacle Course in Denmark (Junglesti)


Baby FECS really loves the outdoor obstacle course. By far the the best one we have come across in Denmark is the one at Sommerland Sjælland, a popular amusement park among Danes. You have to pull a raft across river, walk across a hanging bridge, go through a dark maze-like hut, swing across water, etc.

Little FECS had a great time there during his childhood too. Unfortunately, this outdoor obstacle course is quite far away, an hour's drive from Copenhagen, and it is not free, as it is not located in a nature park. Thus, you need to buy entrance ticket to the amusement park. So going there just for the outdoor obstacle course is not worth it, but fortunately the amusement park has a lot of other fun stuff to offer. So next time we have a visit from our little nieces and nephews from Singapore, we really hope to bring them there - that's the reason for this post :-) I just want to do my homework beforehand, while the memory is still fresh in my mind :-) 

We have also wrote a separate post for our visit to Sommerland Sjælland, which you can read here:


Normal tickets cost 289 DKK. Buying your tickets on-line gave you a discount of 10 DKK for the normal tickets. If you are a member of FDM, you get further discount and we paid 215 DKK per ticket.

If you buy a fixed day ticket on-line, you will pay 169 DKK per ticket, but being Denmark, with unpredictable weather conditions, we decided against this offer.

For the month of July, there are also circus. Going to circus is an expensive affair in Denmark, with ticket costing 500 DKK, thus it is value for money to go there during July as the admission ticket includes also the circus show.

By Car

From Copenhagen, it takes a little more than an hour to drive to the park and 2.5 hours by train. We drove to the park. The first thing upon arrival by car, you will drive-through to buy or show your pre-purchased tickets.  There are ample parking available in the park.

Thereafter, as you follow the road, you will arrive at the open field carpark. Here are more information and a picture of the carpark:

You can find your way there here:

By Train

If you choose to go by train, there is a package including admission tickets. Check their website for more infromation: http://sommerlandsj.dk/koeb-billet/pakketilbud/bus-regionstog.html

If you are arriving by train, here is how the train station at Sommerland looks like:

Here are some pictures of the outdoor obstacle course:

We particularly love the suspended bridge...
