The area where Nature Room Thyborøn is located got its present character when storm tides broke through the narrow isthmus between the sea and the fjord in the early 1800s, thus creating what we today call Thyborøn Channel.

The area is dominated by its two neighbours, the North Sea and the Limfjord. The countryside can be described as a very narrow peninsula or isthmus consisting of dunes to the west and salt meadows to the east. The salty water has influenced the wildlife of the area, plants as well as animals.

To the east there are expanses of water, meadows, and reedy swamps, which serve as nesting and resting places for birds. Characteristic plants are lyme grass, buckthorn, milfoil, but also the somewhat special marsh helleborine, an orchid. You must be aware that there are several species of protected orchids.
