Must see · Scenic Drive · Outdoor Activity
Råbjerg Mile is a migrating coastal dune between Skagen and Frederikshavn, Denmark. It is the largest moving dune in Northern Europe with an area of around 2 km2 (0.4 mi2) and a height of 40 m (130 ft) above sea level. It is also the only major stretch of migrating dunes in Denmark. The dune contains a total of 4 million m3 of sand. The wind moves it in a north-easterly direction up to 18 metres (59 ft) a year. The dune leaves a low, moist layer of sand behind it, trailing back westwards towards Skagerrak, where the Mile originally formed more than 300 years ago. Over 250,000 people visit the dune every year.

  • Surprised to be in a desert in........ Denmark! Dunes to make you thinking you are in Africa, dune, dune and more dune!  more »
  • Although these wandering sand dunes are found in more places in the North of Denmark this is so special that one has to come for a visit. A challenge for the fittest but also quite passable for those....  more »

  • Wonderful dunes, the wind creating lots of different shapes, ripples and mini cliffs. Great fun for dogs. Motorhome/bus parking is quite well sheltered from the wind and there are no signs prohibiting sleeping overnight.
  • Interesting and beutiful nature. Fun for the kids as well as for adults to walk on the dunes. Makes great pictures, bring a good camera. Well worth a shorter detour.
