Where is North Jutland?

Reaching up into the sea towards the rest of Scandinavia, North Jutland is distinctly wild and remote. FUN FACT! The region is surprisingly an island, separated from mainland Denmark by the picturesque Limfjord. You should plan a tour here! Either by campervan, bike or car… depending on your energy levels.

Where the Danes holiday

We love Skagen! Slow sunsets over creamy yellow cottages. A light that’s inspired artists throughout the centuries. And most uniquely of all, the seaside town of Skagen is one of the only places in the world where you can physically see two seas collide.
