"Vores mormor tager os med skovtur hver søndag."

Translation:Our grandmother takes us on a picnic every Sunday.

January 11, 2015



I once made the mistake of thinking a skovtur was a walk in the forest and turned up to a picnic wearing all the wrong gear (walking boots, platypus etc.). My Danish friends did think it was funny though.


Is "picnic" the proper translation of "skovtur". A picnic is with food, but a skovtur can be just an outing in the woods, without food.


på EN skovtur? Or is this just danish grammar?


Can skovtur mean a walk or hiking in the woods, or is the word skovtur just used for a picnic???
