The wind on the west coast can be quite strong in this corner of Denmark - and it has been that way for thousands of years! This has resulted in long periods of sand drift, which has created large sand dunes, wet hollows and many lakes, which together have resulted in a unique landscape of dune, heaths and forest, in this rugged and beautiful part of Thy. It is a natural diversity and an enviroment that is very rare, and therefore was named a National Park, in 2008.
