What you'll do

We will go on an exciting "expedition" to experience 5 Forgotten Giants hiding in the woods and natural reserves of Western Copenhagen. Please note: This experience was previously a biking experience, but due to the unstable Danish weather we now do it by car and by foot. That´s why you will find references to biking in the reviews. The giants were created by the world re-known Danish re-cycling artist Thomas Dambo and are made entirely out of re-cycled wood with the help of local volunteers. They are placed in beautiful surroundings away from the places tourists normally go. We will meet on Flintholm Station which is a 10 minutes metro ride from the center of Copenhagen. You take the metro from Nørreport Station (Direction: Vanløse) to Flintholm Station. I will meet you in the pickup area (where the busses stop) just down the stairs from the metro ( at front end of the train). We will go by car and on foot in our treasure hunt for The Forgotten Fiants. The walking distances from the parking areas to the giants are between 200 yards and 0,5 miles varying from giant to giant. There will be a break with photo opportunities at each giant and we will also stop for a picnic in a beautiful nature spot along the way. The tour also ends at Flintholm Station were you can take the metro back to the city center.
