Coast and nature

In Denmark, nature is open to everyone – including the 500km wide-open sandy beach along the west coast. Along the nation’s coastlines there are holiday homes nestled among the sand dunes and woodlands. Denmark has a varied nature from rocky islands to windswept sandy heathland. You can go island-hopping among Denmark’s 72 inhabited islands, all of which can be reached by ferry or bridge. There are hundreds of kilometres of cycling lanes and historic hiking trails across the nation.

No matter where you stay in Denmark there is easy access to family attractions large and small. There is also history to be discovered in centuries-old castles and seaside towns. There are also unique local culinary experiences to explore in fishing towns and at coastal gourmet getaways.
