Lysfald - "Fårup by Night"
Have you ever experienced Fårup after dark? Normally, only the animals of the forest have been allowed access to the theme park after dark, but in 2021 that changed!
"Lysfald" is the name of the new initiative that takes place during the autumn holidays every year, where the annual Harvest Festival is also held. The lights are switched on in the evening and then you can otherwise rush off on the park's rides while the whole park is lit up.
Every year during the schools' autumn holidays (week 42) you can experience the summer country in autumn clothes with a lot of special experiences.

Accommodation in the middle of the forest!
Hotel Fårup is possibly the coolest accommodation for children - at least in North Jutland.
The 4-star hotel is located in the middle of “Denmark's funniest forest” and is in a completed forest theme with full focus on fun for the kids. Access to the park is included in the stay (and you have access 30 min before opening) and then the restaurant has bronze in the Organic Food Label (30-60% ecology). Perhaps this is also why the hotel in 2019 was named the 4th best hotel in all of Denmark.
For many people from North Jutland, Fårup is synonymous with summer and childhood memories.
The park opened for the first time in 1975 and is thus Scandinavia's first summer country.
Back then, the rides consisted primarily of trampolines, bouncy castles, horses and rowboats. The entrance cost only 4 years, and then the kids could otherwise just frolic all day.
It was a concept that the Danes could relate to, and it soon became a tradition to go on a family trip in the North Jutland summer country.
Today, the park has grown considerably and occupies a full 90 acres, equivalent to 55 football fields!
The park is also known for their academy, which ensures new employees a thorough training in service.
