North Jutland (Northern Denmark) is characterized by sea and Water - to the west the North Sea to the east Kattegat and through the region intersects the fjord itself. Therefore, you can experience a very special light in this part of the country, which also calls itself the Land of Light.


The landscape is rough with white beaches, impressive cliffs and dunes, heather hills and forests. Thanks to the prevailing westerlies of the trees tend to lean the same way, to the east. Limfjord is less dramatic, hilly and green with small sounds, inlets and bays.
