If you like active holidays, Skagen is the right destination. The spit’s unspoilt nature can be experienced, among other things, running or mountain biking, and from July 12th to 14th 2019 you can even participate in Skaw-Dysten (the Skaw Challenge), an orientation competition that encompasses both.
The Skaw Challenge was started in 1984 and is organized every two years in and around Skagen. The event extends over several days of training in orienteering, mountain biking orientation, and a prolog: sprint in Skagen City. See more on the Skaw-Dysten website, where you can sign up for the event.
Everyone in the family can participate, but if one just cares for relax, one can also choose to lay on the many beaches, go to concerts, and everyone can gather again at the table in one of the many cozy eateries in the city. The Skaw Challenge may be the opportunity for an extended holiday that suits everyone’s taste.
