Activities on Skallingen

The peninsula Skallingen offers a wide range of nice activities for the whole family. It is obvious, that the beautiful nature invites to walks. However, there are no marked paths, so everyone has to go on his/her individual tour. 

One route however, is the "Siberian Tour". This is a loop road with a length of 7 kilometers, on which visitors have a good chance of seeing seals and a lot of different birds. It is also possible here to go on a guided tour here. 

Along the coast there are good chances for finding amber. It is often hidden in the sea weed, that is washed up on the beach. 

On Skallingen there are several tables and benches where one can eat while enjoying the view from the dunes towards the beach. It is important to recognize, that dogs are not allowed on the island - not even if they are on a leash. This rule was made to protect the huge bird life on Skallingen.
