Swim around Denmark

Who am I?

Hi, my name is Lars Simonsen. I’m an adventurer, author and motivational speaker from Denmark. I am 41 years old and I have two great kids and one very tough woman (she managed to survive a one and half year long kayak trip with the kids and me.). Together we have travelled all over the world during the last 10 years. Cycled through Australia, driven a 4x4 down through South Amerika, sailed on the Mediterranean Sea, paddled 2000 km down the Yukon River and much more. Our job is our hobby, going on expeditions around the world and give talks about them around Europe.


New adventures

This summer I, together with RAWBITE, will try to be the first person to swim around Denmark and my mum will join me by being the oldest person to kayak around. My mum and I wanted to have an adventure in Denmark together, and try to complete something that sounded impossible. Starting with 400 km of the notorious west coast, then on the east coast we are doing some big crossings, up to 25-30 km and ending down by the Danish/German border again after 1300 km. Four months ago, I couldn’t swim more than 50 meters without a break. This trip is going to be the hardest thing we have ever done, but we are looking forward to sharing this adventure with everyone.



We are really excited to work together with RAWBITE on this trip. We already knew their great fruit and nut bite and were looking for something easy to eat along our way. The organic, healthy energy bars are just perfect. We support two good courses on this trip, Julemærke Fonden (helps kids with problems such as overweight or bullying) and Depressions Foreningen (helps people with depression). We are very exciting to keep you update on our adventure!
