Making your way north—adventures on land and sea

Stretching more than 600 miles long and 360 miles across at its widest point, the North Sea has Great Britain to the west, Norway and Denmark to the east, and Germany and France to the south. The North Sea offers a rich history, from its days as a pivotal site for the rise of the Vikings, to its strategic importance throughout both World Wars. Today, your North Sea vacation rental places you near a mix of major European cities (such as Amsterdam), plus laid-back small towns.

Things to do

The North Sea is for the birds… and everyone else

Nature is never far from your North Sea vacation rental. The Wadden Sea National Parks in Denmark, Germany, and the Netherlands is a popular wildlife preserve, which shelters more than 10 million birds each year. For a change of pace, head indoors to The Hague's famed Mauritshuis Royal Picture Gallery, which features works by heralded Dutch painters. For the kids traveling in your group, visit Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg, Germany, home to the world's largest model train exhibit, and Kristiansand Zoo and Amusement Park in Norway, an amusement park, water park, and zoo all rolled into one.

Activities

Fore! Stay the course, whether you're golfing or hiking

You'll find plenty of outdoor activities right outside the door of your North Sea vacation rental. St. Andrews, Scotland, lives up to its reputation as the birthplace of golf, offering numerous courses to practice your swing. If you want to trade in your golf shoes for hiking boots, the North Sea Trail is a long-distance trail linking 7 countries around the waterway. The trail also provides countless spots for fishing and bird-watching. For those who want to head out into the open sea, try your hand at popular water sports such as windsurfing and sailing.

Weather

It's year-round sweater weather along the North Sea

Break out your warmest clothing—winter is here! Daytime temperatures along the North Sea coast in the winter typically linger somewhere in the 30s, on top of already bone-chilling winds and storms. Don't be surprised if heavy snow falls from the late autumn into the early spring as well, especially along the coast. No one is stepping foot in the North Sea during the winter when water temperatures are typically near freezing. In the warmer summer months, particularly in July, both water and air temperatures reach their highest point, from the mid-50s to the high 60s, respectively.

Natural features

Into the wild—untamed beauty from mountains to mudflats

The coast of the North Sea offers a varied landscape, starting with mountains, fjords, and cliffs along the Norwegian and Scottish coastlines. Further south, you'll stumble upon sandy beaches with mudflats, while the eastern and western borders feature rugged, rocky coastlines. Beneath the surface, the waters are teeming with cod, mackerel, and herring, as well as lobster, deep-water prawns, and brown shrimp, all popular amongst local fisherman. Seabirds, such as Atlantic puffins, fulmars, and loons, call the coast home, while seals and harbor porpoises are often spotted in the waters just off the shoreline.
