A 250 km blue band of coastline and beach embraces a landscape with, among other things Mols Bjerge National Park and charming towns just to explore. Few places can compete with this concentration of exciting glacially-carved landscape, beaches, charming villages and the varied and exceptional nature.
Djursland invites you to hunt for fossilised sea urchins under steep limestone cliffs near Karlby, Gjerrild and Sangstrup, inlet atmosphere under a clear sky along Randers Fjord, hikes along the north coast or up on Agri Bavnehøj and Trehøje in Mols Bjerge National Park, brisk cycling tours along closed-down sections of railroad in the heart of Djursland.
The Mols Bjerge Nationalpark takes its name from Mols Bjerge (mountains) which is the famous and conserved nature area in the national park with a breathtaking landscape. In this glacial landscape the nature is something quite unique with rare plants and animal species.
Throughout the summer, Kyst- og Fjordcentret’s nature guides offer activities for both children and adults, among others interpretation of life in the shallow water where crabs and small fish dwell, tours in kayaks, snorkelling and introduction to the cliffs’ fossils and animal life. You can meet up with the nature guides at Fjordcentret in Voer and at Blå Flagcentret (the Blue Flag Centre) in Fjellerup and Grenaa, and they also turn up in other places along the coast in the course of the summer to set activities into motion.
Unique place in Nationalpark mols mountains.
In the middle of the beautiful hills in the heart of Mols Bjerge, you find Molslaboratoriet – a part of Natural History Museum in Aarhus. Here you can borrow equipment and get ideas for nature safaris for kids and their parents and find inspiration for guided trips out into the area.
Take a break at one of the more than 15 child-friendly beaches. Shallow water and white sand are the main characteristics. There are beaches for surfers, divers, children and more. Find the one for you.
Biking along by-ways through stunning landscapes is an effective way to relax and enjoy the nature in Djursland.
When the wind settles down, you can cast a line into the sea at Rugaard Beach and bet on that your evening meal will bite the fishhook. Along several of the coastlines, for example at Glatved Beach, it is good to dive and see schools of sea trout or large flatfish on the bottom. And, on the surface, both porpoises and seals can be seen.
