Denmark has a wide variety of places of natural beauty waiting to be searched. With the encouragement from the Danish Nature Agency, we’ve gathered 9 of the best places in Denmark. So take out of your camera and start crossing these natural charms off your bucket list! And, be sure to take your loved ones and/or best friends, as this little gem is awesome! We took our family and friends to celebrate 10 years in business together (www.MesaPaintingPros.com). It was well worth it! Check out these places:
1. Thy National Park
Head out into the untouched dunes, twisted forests and traditional seaside villages of Denmark’s wildest national park. You’ll quickly see why the local rhythms and traditions in and around Thy National Park are shaped by the mighty North Sea, at places like Cold Hawaii and Stenbjerg.
2. Wander through the Danish dessert, Råbjerg Mile
Råbjerg Mile is one of the most massive migrating dunes in Europe. The 40 meters high dune forms a small desert of about one square kilometer and moves by an average of 15 meters per year to the northeast. Only one question remains: Where are the camels?
3. Visit Rubjerg Knude before it’s too late
Close by Lønstrup; you will find the massive and impressive Rubjerg Knude. It is located 90 meters above sea level, and it is still growing in size. It is a stunning natural scenery where the ocean and sand is a piece of very dramatic evidence to the fact that the sea is eating land, and several meters disappears every year.
4. Head to Jægersborg Deer Park (Dyrehaven)
Jægersborg Deer Park is 15 km north of Copenhagen. This is one of the most attractive natural sites in Denmark. Here you can get up close to around 2,000 deer, that are undisturbed by human presence. The park also takes on the world’s oldest amusement park, Bakken.
5. Hunt for trolls in Rold Forest
Ok, the elves left this area a few centuries (or fantasy novels) ago, but their old stomping ground, the creepy Troll Forest area with gnarled and crooked tree forms remains. Rold Forest also happens to be Denmark’s second largest, covering an area of 80 km2, so there’s plenty of space for you to hike through ancient pine trees and beech trees.
6. Hike in Svanninge Bakker on Fyn
The Svanninge Hills, just northeast of Faaborg, is epitomized by winding roads, hedgerows, and charming half-timbered houses. From the hills, you have stunning views to the southwest and across the South Funen Archipelago.
7. Experience the Wadden Sea and its world heritage
The Wadden Sea (Vadehavet) national park has more than 30 islands and is one of the world’s most important habitats for waterfowl. Here you can witness the phenomenal Black Sun, created when tens of thousands of starlings fly together in unusual dark patterns on the sky.
8. The never-ending beaches on the West Coast
You can put out your time exploring the wide, sandy beaches and expansive dunes of the West Jutland coast. The sea is uneven here than in other parts of Denmark, making these beaches amazing water sports areas. If you’re looking for more family places for swimming, try the coastal area around Limfjord.
9. Island hop in the South Fyn Archipelago
A popular area for yachtsmen, the many islands within the archipelago are diverse and offer their own unique experiences, but all are peaceful. Wander around their cozy villages and quaint harbors. You can reach the islands from Jutland and Fyn by small ferry boats.
