Langeland is an island off the coast of Denmark, famous for its grain and its wonderful land and seascapes. With a population of only approximately 13,000, visitors to Langeland holiday rentals can find plenty of room to enjoy themselves. The island is a paradise for nature lovers, with its fauna ranging from migrating sea birds to wild horses. These horses are a herd of Exmoor ponies who were introduced to the island in 2003, and live out in the wild. They are not ornamental though; the horses keep busy by grazing the grass at Klise Nor and elsewhere, which helps the local birdlife. Vast flocks of migrating birds can be seen here at Klise Nor at the right time of year, while there is another fine reserve at Påø marshes near Skovsgaard.
