Nature at Sæby close to Skagen

Beautiful scenery and tranquility

Understed Hills are located in our backyard, Kattegat in the front yard and the forests surround our campsite. Here are good opportunities to get up the pulse through swimming, horse and bike riding. Or to get the pulse down by enjoying the deep silence of the forest or the flowers in Nellemann's Garden.

The northernmost point of Jutland
