    Ekkodalen (Echo Valley) is a rift valley in Almindingen Forest. Known as the longest rift in Denmark, it stretches for around 15 km through the 3,800-hectare forest along Bornholm's northeast coast. Along the way, there are memorials for Marie Kofoed, a Bornholm philanthropist, and Hans Rømer, a forester who gave the valley its name.

    Testing the echo is one of the most popular things to do in Ekkodalen. From the entrance, follow a path for about 20 metres towards Hans Christian Ørsted's spring – this is the best point to shout towards the cliffside and hear your echo.
