Biking: The route of Birds of prey - 41 km

For a direct encounter with the wild nature, a ride through the Birds of prey route is recommended, it will take you through open dunes and green plantations.

Remember to look up towards the sky, as you might be lucky enough to spot a golden eagle, white-tailed eagle, or buzzard, some of Denmark's most fascinating birds of prey. The route runs on asphalt, forest roads, and field paths.

On this bicycle route, you can experience Denmark's largest wandering dune, "Råbjerg Mile," and Gårdbo Lake, also known as "the green lake."

Throughout the entire bike ride, and especially over the dunes, remember to look up at the sky. You might be lucky enough to spot various different birds of prey. Skagen is one of the best migration hotspots for birds of prey in Europe. On a spring day, you can see up to 20 different species.

You can start the route from any point, but it is planned for counterclockwise cycling to have the trees provide some shelter from the westerly winds. Please note that there aren't many shopping opportunities along the route, so it's essential to be prepared in advance.
