The echo valley on Bornholm is the most magnificent part of Alminding's largest crack valley. The spectacular cliffs are an impressive sight in themselves, but for children and childish souls it will be a special hit to play with the echo that arises when the sounds are thrown back from the steep cliff walls.
The best place to experience the Echo Valley's echoes is at the source of HC Ørsted. It is on the left if you follow the path from the parking lot at Ekkodalshuset.
The echo valley is up to 70 meters wide and is bounded by majestic rock walls up to 20 meters in height. At the bottom, the Læsåen runs through a meadow, and the open landscape gives a wide view of the vertical rocks. You can also experience the Echo Valley from above, where a more than 200-year-old forest with winter oaks grows.
From the viewpoints Queen Queen and Loklippen you get a beautiful view of the lower landscape. Bornholm's fissure valley runs across the island. It is visible from Saltuna on Bornholm's northeast coast and 12 kilometers inland to Vallensgårds Mose, which is on the outskirts of the forest area Almindingen. Thereafter, the crack valley continues underground to Arnager on Bornholm's southwest coast.
Apart from the car park at Ekkodalshuset, there are also parking areas at a number of other locations in Almindingen.
