Nature's Serenity | The beautiful nature in Western Jutland

Nature's Serenity

Ringkøbing Fjord, Tipperne and Værnengene, Skjern Enge, Stadil Fjord and Vest Stadil Fjord, the dunes, Klosterheden, Borris Hede, Dejbjerg Plantage, the vast beach meadows, and the beach lakes are each on their own unique pieces of nature with an incredibly rich vegetation and wildlife. Together, they form a nature mosaic which is definitely worth exploring.  
The large beach meadows and wetlands include some of Europe's most important areas for migrating birds to rest and gather food. The number of waterfowls breeding here is increasing each year, and some of the birds that stop here are very rare in Denmark. 

At the water locks in Hvide Sande you can see the seals bathing in the sun and enjoying themselves on the seaside of the locks.
