Cliffs of Møn

Took a trip to Møn.
The white cliffs of Møn were formed several millions of years ago when Denmark was covered by the sea. The cliffs were formed by the compression of small chalk based life forms, who resided in the sea in this specific area. Over the millennia’s these animals gradually turned to chalk due to the high pressure and formed the magnificent cliffs which today stand here guarding the sea. Whilst walking around you may get lucky and find a fossil of a squid or a mussel and so we did, the children went absolutely insane and we came home with 1 tons of stones.
