The nature of Denmark
Denmark is said to be one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Despite being one of the smallest Nordic countries, Denmark still has a lot to brag about. The coast of the country is one long sandy beach on the Baltic Sea. The fine white sand forms beautiful untouched dunes, but you can also find meadow beaches around the Skjoldungernes Land National Park. This is one of the six official national parks in Denmark. The world’s largest national park is also located in Denmark. You can find it in Greenland, the biggest island on Earth. Denmark’s six national parks are spread over the country, offering a unique experience for nature lovers. Our glamping homes in the wild are a great accommodation for adventurous and comfortable stay in nature. Tents, yurts, bungalows, and caravans are welcoming guests for alternative camping stays. Another idea is to take your own camping home and make use of the beautiful nature spots of our landlords. This is an emerging trend called micro camping. Check our micro camping sites here.
So now, let’s continue with the designated national parks of Denmark. Thy National Park the king of the wilderness areas in Denmark. It is located in North Jutland and it harbours dunes, heathlands, forests, grasslands, and a charming rugged coastline. Travel south to Central Jutland and find Nationalpark Mols Bjerge. It is renowned for its rich plant diversity, containing more than half of all the wild plant species that grow in Denmark. The park covers an area of an open countryside with quaint villages and big summer residences. So, if you’re looking to get away from it all, then hide in the forests of Kongernes Nordsjælland National Park in the northern parts of the island Zealand. Explore the woodlands of pine, beech, and old-grown oak trees. The park is also home to a rich animal life. Ramble in the forest and encounter five different species of deer. Other wildlife animals that you can meet are red foxes and badgers, but most of all, the area is full of birds. Denmark is indeed a wonderful destination for the bird experts. Visit the Wadden Sea National Park in spring or autumn and be amazed by an abundance of migratory birds - the number of birds goes beyond 10 million! The Wadden Sea is the biggest national park in Denmark. It is also a world heritage site, so walking and hiking in the area promises a pleasant sight-seeing experience.
What to do during your holiday in Denmark?
About 40% of the population in Denmark lives in the capital city of Copenhagen. Leaving the rest of the country sparsely populated, allows you to really enjoy the stunning nature in breathless silence. Wild beaches, pristine islands, untouched dunes, and twisted forests, make Denmark the perfect place for your back-to-nature escape. Especially for the water sport enthusiasts, who have many opportunities to satisfy their need for water adventures. Swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear waters is a favorite activity for the tourists and locals. Thanks to the wind conditions, Denmark is also one of the best destinations in Europe for windsurfing. Kite surfing, paragliding, and hang-gliding are also part of the sports you can practice. And for the less experienced, canoeing and kayaking is a good substitute. It’s best done in the inland waterways, also possible in the canals of Copenhagen! Among the most popular activities on land are nature walks and hiking. You can explore the naturalistic landscapes of the country on foot or by bike. Just like the Netherlands, Denmark is mostly flat and everyone drives a bike. Follow one the 11 national cycling routes and pass through some of the most interesting attractions of the country. Still, certain areas with predominantly rolling landscapes you can also practice mountain biking. Are you ready for your holiday in Denmark?

When is the best time to book a holiday in Denmark?
Most people say that the best month for visiting Denmark is June. It’s when the summer season starts, so you won’t have to deal with the cold winter weather. The most important thing you should know about the weather in Denmark is that it rains a lot, throughout the year. Surprisingly, spring (March - May) is the least rainy season of all. The spring weather is a warm-up transition to the summer, but temperatures can drop to 4°C. It is still a suitable time for a holiday in nature because the landscapes become heavenly pink with the blossoming cherry trees. Wake your mind with a leisure morning stroll in the forest and come back to your cozy home for a warming tea by the fireplace. Just take our advice and take your winter jacket, just in case.
If you’d like to be part of the water adventure life in Denmark, book your holiday in July and August. The highest temperatures reach 23°C, so it never really gets hot. At least you have lots of sunshine and a great uplifting atmosphere at the beach. The summer season is actually pretty sunny, with a sunrise at 3.00AM and a late sunset at 11.30PM. This goes the opposite way in the winter. The daylight hours end late in the afternoon, with a sunset at 4.00PM. Even though Denmark has a generally mild climate without extremes, the winter feels a lot colder than it actually is. This is because of the freezing winds that can make anyone feel cold as ice. In December, January, and February it is still too cold to spend long hours outdoors. The autumn months from September until November are less harsh on people. The temperatures are usually between 5 and 10 degrees, but the winds are definitely more gentle.
