If you’re looking for a holiday in a wild outdoors of dunes, heathlands and wind-blown beaches under open sky, West Jutland is for you. The coast is a dramatic landscape, shaped by The North Sea. However, it’s not far to the milder, hilly area around the Limfjord, dotted with small straits, bays and inlets. Take a break from the wind at West Jutland’s beautiful inland areas, with large forest plantations and fields. West Jutland is home to one of Denmark’s national parks, The Wadden Sea. This intertidal marshland is an excellent place to see birds and parts of this area are on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
