Roam with us: Skagen

Come with us and experience a journey of the mind and the senses as we take you to some of the most spectacular corners of wild Scandinavia, through the eyes of our team. This time we travel with our team member, Nikki, to Skagen in the northernmost tip of Jutland, famous for the meeting of the two seas, Kattegat and Skagerrak.

As an expat living in Scandinavia, Skagen has always been on my bucket list to visit. A unique place located on the very tip of Denmark, with spectacular nature and landscapes that have inspired some of the greatest Danish artists for centuries. Indeed it did not disappoint me.

I would like to share with you the three things from Skagen that left the biggest impression on me:

1. The meeting of the seas

The famous outermost tip of Skagen is Denmark’s northernmost point, and with its length of 30km, it is also known as world’s longest spit.

Watching the waves from the seas of Skagerrak and Kattegat crush against each other, while enjoying the refreshing scents from the cold, dark blue sea on that clean, white-sand beach is such a sensory memory that I won’t forget for a long time.

2. The moving sand dunes

Skagen has the largest moving sand dunes in Northern Europe. It is said, that in a few hundred years, the dunes will tumble into the ocean. I did not believe the scene until I ended up in the presence of the big dunes of Råbjerg Mile: the blowing wind changes the shape of the dunes in merely a few minutes, leaving unique ripples on the surface of the sand.

There’s a famous church that was buried by the drifting sand in Skagen, now with only the tower left as a reminder of its existence.

Some plants managed to grow stubbornly from the dunes, they form a symbolic scenery for Skagen: sandy path winding all the way up, alongside with the green grass and colourful plants.

3. The ‘hygge’

The typical Skagen style of housing is a very consistent colour of yellow and red houses with brick roofs. In fact the whole town looks like that.

Hygge is something that doesn’t need to be screamed out loud in Skagen: if you just take a look at those brick houses with colourful gardens filled with summer flowers, you will certainly get some impressions of the Danish ‘hygge’ that everyone is talking about.
