Expore Denmark's first National Park

The western part of Thy has been shaped by centuries of sand migration and is today an area of long coastlines, sand dunes and heaths, lakes, and plantations. It is an interesting and valuable interaction between cultural history and nature which is a carrying part of the idea of National park Thy. National park Thy extends from Hanstholm lighthouse in the north to Agger Tange in the south and is in the east defined by agricultural land. In this area, the arctic and southern European types of nature are meeting. The dunes are from European meaning and have many dwarf shrubs, but relatively little heather.

Attractions in Nationalpark Thy

In West Thy and around Hanstholm some of Denmark’s cleanest lakes are found. These lakes can be both rich and poor in lime, and the aquatic plants and insect life in the lakes are unusual compared to the rest of the country. On the steep limestone slopes around the earlier islands of the Stone Age sea, for instance near Hanstholm, you will find a dry soil flora from herbs. Furthermore, in the brackish salty wetlands near Agger and Harboør Tange many different plant species exist. You will also find a lot of birds in this area too, if you are lucky you can also admire some rare bird species in the National park Thy.
