Thy National Park
The wind from the sea can be quite strong in this corner of Denmark - and has been for millennia. This means long periods of sand drift, which has created significant dunes and wet depressions and a myriad of lakes, which together have become the very special dune-heath landscape found along the West Coast in Thy. A landscape and a nature content that is quite unique, and which was therefore named a National Park in 2008.
