Summer activities 2024
18/6 - 10/8

Naturum's summer activities offer many opportunities for all ages - children and adults - to get to know the Öresund's flora and fauna in our guided activities. The activities are free of charge unless otherwise stated.  ​

 

Safety is important to us and our activities have age limits, usually a minimum age and Barnens Hav also has an upper age limit. Sometimes an adult needs to participate even if the children are the right age.

 

The age limits are created so that the activities are meaningful, safe and secure for everyone, both participants and staff. Therefore, we are also grateful  for all compliance with our age limits and group sizes in the guided activities. All information is described under each activity.

There are many who want to book activities. Please cancel your booking in case of hindrance.
