Spend the night under the stars

In North Jutland, the sky is a little bit bigger and the nature a bit more spectacular. Wake up to the sound of crashing waves or birds chirping in the woods. Enjoy it all while sleeping under the stars in your own shelter or tent.

If you want to sleep in the heart of nature, feel the fresh morning breeze on your skin and the grass between your toes, then North Jutland is the right place for you.

If you relish the simpler life outdoors you will have no trouble in Denmark, as there are almost 800 nature campgrounds.

The Danish shelter and tent sites are for all to use, but be advised that cars, caravans, trailers, and motorbikes are not allowed on the campgrounds.

The sites are scarcely furnished, but most offer campfire area and access to toilets nearby. A lot of the campgrounds also offer shelters, where you can stay the night without the need for a tent. The price for a night is fluctuating but with a max of 25 DKK per person. Payment methods differ, so it is best to read up on your specific campground before you go or call in advance to hear about availability, as they may be crowded during the summer season.
