North Zealand offers lovely experiences all year round. On the long stretch of the coast, there are wide, white, sandy beaches with excellent swimming opportunities; you will find them at Dronningmølle, Tisvildeleje, Lisleje and Hundested. Elsewhere, you can enjoy the breathtaking view over Kattegat from the high cliffs at Gilbjerghoved, for instance, Heatherhill, the heathered hills. By Hundested, the sometimes rough Kattegat joins the gentler Isefjord and Roskilde Fjord. Bicycle Route 47 follows the whole north coast.
The two largest lakes in Denmark, Arresø and Esrum Sø, are in North Zealand. Here, you can go canoeing or paddle a kayak, fishing, and enjoy the abundant birdlife. Go for an hour’s sailing trip on the charming ferry M/S Frederikke on Arresø, a lovely nature experience for the whole family.
Gribskov is Denmark’s second-largest forest, with outstanding scenery with lakes, bogs, meadows, and hilly grazing land.
