Beneath the ice

 
 

”Beneath the Ice” is a dramatised audio walk that plays whenever you choose. The setting is the beautiful countryside of Southern Funen.

In the company of the narrator and archeologist Sofie, you ascend from Faaborg into the hilly Ice Age landscape that cradles our picturesque town. Feel how your pulse quickens as you walk upwards with a lovestruck Hans Christian Andersen in your ear. Smell the pine forest as his beloved Riborg Voigt reads from their correspondence. And let yourself be captivated by the gentle hills that have mesmerized the famous painters Anne and Fritz Syberg.
