Møns Klint is one of those places we have always wanted to visit but had never found the time. It is about as far away from my hometown of Lemvig as you can get and still be in Denmark. However, when your rental car is an Audi A3 and you are staying in Copenhagen, it is a viable day trip option. Speaking of rental cars, I had never envisioned us renting a vehicle while in Denmark but we have found some awesome deals and we have discovered the rental car option provides us with a sense of stability and self determination. This last rental was an upgrade and I could very easily get used this car.
Møns Klint (English: the Cliffs of Møn) are a 6 km stretch of chalk cliffs along the eastern coast of the Danish island of Møn in the Baltic Sea. Some of the cliffs fall a sheer 120 m to the sea below.
We arrived at noon and hiked the area for 3 hours. First along the top and then down 494 steps to the beach below. It was easy to admire this area. The forest was magical with low light coming in from south west. The 120 metre drop to the Baltic sea was dizzying and the green water below stood in sharp contrast to the white cliffs.
We have been making a point of going for walks almost every day this past week. Now we are wondering if it will be enough or if Sharon and Leighton will punish us on hikes around the peak in Hong Kong :) We will know soon enough. That is indeed where we are headed next. We fly out tomorrow. So long Denmark. It's been a fabulous holiday season.
