This project takes point of departure in the town of Langå - developing a nature destination attractive for tourists as well as locals. When the municipal reform came in to effect in 2007, Langå lost its status as municipality capital to the larger city Randers. Therefore Langå now have to fi nd its stands in this new context. Since one of Langås main attractions is its nature and its close proximity to Gudenåen; already very popular with wildlife tourists and anglers, who use it for e.g. canoeing and fl y-fi shing, this project will investigate how this potential can be transformed in to a destination attractive for both locals and tourists. A Nature Park with an Experience Centre will draw on tourist sectors already established in Langå and around the river. It will further fall in line with a new form of tourism gaining ground, where the experience and adventure elements are becoming more important than the physical elements of accommodation and transport. With Langås train station and its location close to the regions two main cities Århus and Randers, the park gains the further advantage of being able to supply its visitors with easy and sustainable public transport, from the cities almost straight to the park. This is something pretty unique for a nature tourist destination in the countryside - encouraging visitors to consider the nature of their destination, even before they get to the park.
