There are still places where it is possible to experience wild and unrestrained nature of Denmark. The Danish beaches are the most unique type of landscape, we can offer in Denmark. Besides low water and inner waters Denmark really has much to offer the nature of the world. Only few places of the world it is possible to experience such a multifarious and varying coast landscape as the Danish - with great shape and biological variation
The free nature in Denmark:
Over half of the Danish 7000 km long coast is native nature, and the only authentic nature Denmark has in large quantity. Here tourists and modern Danes may experience nature in free development.
The landscape of the ice age:
Everything is the result of what ice age left 12.000 years ago. With wind as power and waves plus the sea current as instruments, nature has shifted the Danish coastlines around. They are in constant move and change.
20 exiting coastal landscapes:
There are numerous exciting coastal tracts in Denmark. The list is much longer than we have chosen to describe. The districts mentioned below are the most precious and show the geographic variation.
