If you are into nature, the Wadden Sea is almost a paradise. Nature is world class with rich wildlife. The Wadden Sea is home to millions of migratory birds, a large seal population and incredible biodiversity. You get good nature experiences all year round.
The fantastic nature invites exploration and activity. You can get close to the nature of the Wadden Sea in many ways. Step on the pedals on one of the area's many signposted bicycle routes or lace up your boots and discover the marsh trail near Höjer. Take a guide out into the wild and get close to both birds, seals, the Wadden Sea itself and a host of other incredible scenery.
At the Wadden Sea you will also find some of Europe's largest beaches. Both Rømø and Fanø have miles of beach, where there is room to laze on the towel, enjoy a good ice cream and have fun with the family, and at the same time there is room for cool wind sports - which you can also try your hand at on holiday. Try a trip in a block and sail along the beach, with the wind as the motor and the wide beach as the road.
If you have the courage for a quieter engine, jump in the saddle and experience the Wadden Sea from horseback, with opportunities for riding at all levels.
When you visit the Wadden Sea, it is not only nature and tranquility that you should look forward to. The Wadden Sea has made its mark on the area's rich and diverse cultural life. Discover the many art and cultural museums, see the whale skeleton on Rømø, see the beautiful folk costumes on Fanø and look forward to a visit to Denmark's oldest city of Ribe, where the cathedral towered in the otherwise flat landscape.
