Sand Dunes of Skagen, Denmark

From series “Top 15 Most Fantastic Creations of Nature”
Denmark is one of the most developed and richest countries in the world, so it is particularly difficult to assume that there you can see wonderful lunar landscapes. Not far from the coast of Skagen city, there is the unique site named Sand Dunes. That’s an amazing combination of vast empty beaches and quicksand. This natural landmark is situated in the unique location, where the Baltic Sea is connected with the North Sea.

Sand Dunes of Skagen, Denmark Incredibly beautiful sand dunes have long attracted curious tourists. Many tend to visit the coast during the summer solstice. According to an old tradition, on this day, lush festivities are held on the coast until late at night. The music plays and, after dark, bonfires light up the surrounding lunar landscape. In the remaining time, the travelers also have an opportunity to visit the spectacular coastline and enjoy the atmosphere of complete calmness, as people can be rarely seen there.

One of the main mysteries of the coast is the sandy dune, Rabjerg Mile. It is characterized by an impressive scale. The structure is moving. This dune is the largest in northern Europe. Its height is 40 meters, and the area is about one square kilometer. The dune moves under the influence of wind. Every year, it crawls to the north-east direction by an average of 18 meters. Fortunately, you can go climbing on this dune. You can fully appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of the surrounding landscape from the top of this formation. Next - Roraima Mountain
