The Par Force Hunting Landscape nominated as UNESCO world heritage in 2015, but the hunting landscape has influenced North Sealands forest and culture for a very long time. When King Christian V laid out the Par Force Hunting Landscape at the end of the 1600s, the hunt existed until 1777.

In North Sealand, the landscape was tamed and shaped on a considerable scale. Lakes, bogs and wetlands were dammed up by stretched roads and slopes were levelled so that you could follow the hunt from central crossings. Read more about the Par Force forests in North Sealand.
