Situated on approximately 13 hectares of beautiful parkland on the Sønderborg Bay, IHS is just a short walk from the beach where the school’s many aquatic activities such as surfing, sailing and kayaking take place. Sønderskoven, a large forest where students can take part in cross training, triathlon training and running, is also just one kilometre away. “Close to the sea, the forest and the town of Sønderborg, IHS is probably Denmark’s most beautifully located folk high school,” says school principal Michael Willemar.
