At the very tip of Denmark lies Skagen, a town that is known throughout the country for its beautiful light and many colours. For many years now, it has attracted painters and photographers who are drawn to the clear, soft hues and quaintness of Skagen. Nowhere else in Denmark is the light so intense. Besides it's beautiful light and wonderful colours, the region around Skagen also has significantly less rainfall than elsewhere in Denmark, and we have the Norwegian mountains to thank for that.
During a holiday in a holiday home in the Skagen area, you really mustn't miss a trip to the port, where the boats come in with their fresh catches every day. But this is not only an old fishing village with masses of charm, it is also a contemporary town with an exciting cultural life with music, a theater and much more.

Along this stretch, you´ll also find one of Northern Europe's most beautiful bathing beaches that attracts water-lovers to the holiday homes in the area. The size and width of this child-friendly beach means it never feels overcrowded. On some parts of the beach, you can find several fascinating relics of the past such as abandoned bunkers from World War II. Hanstholm is home to the historical Museumcenter Hantsholm, where you can explore Northern Europe´s largest fortifications from World War II, while both Hirtshals and Skagen further north, also have bunker museums where you can experience the underground fortresses from the inside.

In the park, there are both bicycle routes and hiking trails with winding paths and good vantage points. If you feel like getting out of the house for a change, you can enjoy your packed lunch in one of the shelters or lay-bys along the route. One of the reasons why Northern Jutland is so popular as a travel destination is because of the wide variety of attractions that are evenly distributed throughout the area. In addition to the magnificent natural surroundings, an attraction in themselves, you will find both aquariums, amusement parks and museums that will provide many hours of entertainment for the whole family, both indoors and outdoors.
Fårup Summerland, one of the most popular attractions on the list, has been providing fun for all ages in the large forest between Blokhus and Løkken since 1975. This popular theme park has continued to expand since it opened and today offers more than fifty different rides for everyone for both

Skagen is home to several landmarks that are well-worth
the drive - whatever the distance. This where you´ll find
Skagen´s Lighthouse, which at
46 metres tall makes it one of Denmark's highest. In the
same area, are
the Skagen Museum and Saint Laurentii Church, better
known as the Sand-buried Church. Several centuries of drifting sand has buried the present mystical church until only the tower remains standing among the trees in the large dune plantation. It's no wonder there are so many holiday homes in Skagen. The beautiful natural surroundings go without saying, but the town of Skagen itself exudes a very special atmosphere that reflects the local culture. Hungry stomachs will quickly be satisfied in this true eldorado of dining options that includes everything from traditional inns and smorgasbord restaurants to fine gourmet food outlets and fishmongerers. Between Skagen and Frederikshavn, lie the desert-like shifting sand dunes known as Råbjerg Mile, the largest of its kind in Europe, just waiting to provide you with a unique hike revealing far more hidden facets along the way than you could ever imagine. Råbjerg Mile is divided into several different smaller areas, each with their own fauna and function in the distinctive landscape. All this is waiting for you when you visit Skagen in a holiday home.
Lønstrup is a small town in Vendsyssel located 15 kilometres from Hirtshals. The town used to be a fishing village, but today there are only a few fishermen left in the boatyard who fish just for fun. However, there are still plenty of fish in the water, so there are lots of opportunities for spending an afternoon angling from the stone breakwaters that have been erected to protect the coast. Lønstrup, in particular, is known for its harsh but beautiful nature with steep cliffs, that are more than 70 metres high in some places. The city is also home to several galleries and craftsmen (potters, glass blowers, painters, sculptors etc.). We have a wide selection of holiday home rentals in Lønstrup, which is why we are sure that we have just what you need.
Blokhus, is a small town on the northwestern coast of Jutland. The white sandy beaches are the town's biggest attraction and one of the reasons that a very large number of tourists and holidaymakers visit the area every year. Not far from Blokhus is Fårup Summerland - a very popular attraction and one of the largest amusement parks in Denmark. Another of the town's attractions is the 642-acre Blokhus Dune Plantation that offers unique nature experiences for children and adults. The dune plantation includes a natural playground and picnic area, as well as a natural baking oven, hiking trails, mountain biking routes and a dog forest where dogs can run freely off the leash. And let's not forget the annual sand sculpture festival in Blokhus (at the old school in Hune).
With its more than 1,500 inhabitants Løkken is one of the larger towns on the northwestern coast of Jutland. Originally, Løkken was an important fishing village - with settlements dating back to the end of the 17th century - but today the town is a busy holiday resort with plenty of holiday homes for rent and it is a favourite tourist destination of both Danes and foreign visitors. Løkken´s excellent location on the west coast of Jutland has transformed the town in recent years into a mecca for watersports enthusiasts, and all those who enjoy frolicking in the, at times, fierce waves of the North Sea. There are many great opportunities here for swimming, windsurfing, kite surfing, kayaking and so on - for both children and adults alike. Another spot you mustn't miss is Klitmøller. Off Klitmøller is where some of Denmark´s biggest waves are generated. A little bit of paradise for experienced windsurfers. And a breathtaking experience for everyone else as they watch the surfers hone their skills on the board. If you're feeling adventurous, there are plenty of places to learn how it's done on-site.
