The island of Læsø

- Isle of Hlér -

Læsø is an idyllic island located in the northeast coast of the Danish mainland. I spent two weeks here this summer in conjunction with the United World College Short Course programme - a perfect place to be while learning about social entrepreneurship and sustainability.

Læsø has everything from white sandy beaches, modern summer cabins and spas to extensive farmlands and wildlife. The half-timbered houses are a particular charming feature that can be found everywhere around the island. Every now and then I would go for a run along the coastline and just admire the authenticity of this place. Although it often felt like a very remote place to be considering the a low density population, it was filled with life.
