The sand dune was formed on the west coast (Råbjerg Stene) in the 16th century during the great sand migration.
The dune consists of a 1000-m long and 1000-m wide mound containing approximately 4 million m3 of sand with its highest point about 40 m above sea level.
The dune continues to migrate east-northeast towards the Kattegat at a rate of more than 15 m a year.
Raabjerg Mile can be reached by car from Kandestedvej and by bike from Vestkyststien (The westcoast route).
Raabjerg Stene can be reached by footpath from Raabjerg Kirke (Church).
