Life's a beach
Beach life is an important part of North Zealand culture and there are different types of beach to tempt you. The North Coast is lined in places with steep cliffs, especially near Vejby and Gilbjerg Head, Zealand's northernmost point.
Try the old coast walking trails and cycling routes for fantastic views of the island. If you dive, there are many shipwrecks along Bornholm’s north and east coasts waiting to be explored.
The rugged North
Anglers head to Funen for some of Europe's best coastal angling spots, particular good for catching sea trout. You’ll find great locations for angling on both Funen and the South Funen Archipelago.
A land shaped by ice
On the island of Læsø out in the Kattegat, you can access large stretches of untouched nature and the island is almost entirely circled by wide beaches, with seal colonies and other wildlife.
Where two seas meet
The Nature Agency produces information leaflets containing maps and descriptions of all public nature areas in Denmark.
A super way to experience Denmark’s nature is to hire a ranger, or guide, to tell you about interesting things along the way. Find out more about this service at your local tourist office or at the visitors centres located in Denmark’s national parks.
Stags in season
There is a little journey in every oyster. Once you open and smell them there is a fresh breeze on your face from the sea and the wild. The Romans brought the flat shelled oysters from the Atlantic region of Europe back to Italy packed with in ice, snow or in barrels with sea water.
