Snorkel trail by Trelde Næs
The Trelde Næs snorkel trail is ideal for seeing the fascinating world that lives below the water’s surface.
Experience life under water
When you are on the water and on the beach, you rarely see what’s really going on below the surface. The snorkel trail at Trelde Næs gives you a unique opportunity to dive down and experience life on the seabed up close.
The snorkel trail is 100 metres long and consists of 6 underwater posts. Each post hides a piece of text with accompanying pictures or questions that you have to dive down and try to guess the answer to. The 6 posts are made of concrete. They stand on the seabed and are connected by a chain: Follow the chain and you’re guaranteed to reach the next post.
The start and end of the snorkel trail are marked with an orange buoy.
