Departure JyllandsAkvariet, Thyborøn
Amber safari in the dark - Thyborøn
Amber hunting in the dark
Do you know the feeling of coming back from the beach with your pockets full of yellow stones?
If you know the feeling of having unsuccessfully been amber hunting, then come along on our guided amber tour, where we will teach you to find and recognize the amber with a special UV-light. In the dark, with the UV-light it is a completely different experience to search for the amber.
The guide will give you an introduction to the amber and then take you to the beach , where we, under the right circumstances, will show you how to use the light and recognize the amber.
