About 3 km from Gåsevig Strand Camping is Slivsøen – a nature restoration project with a completely unique nature. The area is suitable for a long walk or bike ride around the lake.
Slivsø is 164 hectares and South Jutland’s third largest lake. The lake is a habitat for 180 bird species, among others the sea eagle lives in this area. In addition, the lake contains many pike, perches and trouts. By Slivsø there are great hiking routes. A North route and a South route. The Northern route takes you very close to the lake and wildlife. It takes you past the old pumping station, which today has been rebuilt and serves as a lookout tower. From here there are views of the entire lake and wildlife. The route is about 3.5 km long. The Southern route is about 2.5 km long and offers a panoramic view of the lake and the countryside.
In the central part of the lake there is the possibility of canoeing, kayaking and rowing. Read more about the rules by following this link: https://naturstyrelsen.dk
