If you don't want to stay at the same place for very long, North Jutland is an ideal destination. In our easy-to-navigate, compact region you can cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time by car, bus or train.
Travelling by your own effort offers an added dimension to the trip, allowing you to have a look at the country from a different point of view. Maybe from a bicycle saddle. North Jutland has an extensive network of clearly marked biking routes, and the hills are never steeper than even the smallest legs can handle them.
North Jutland viewed from a canoe or a kayak gliding along one of the beautiful waterways is an experience of nature, relaxation and active holiday for the whole family. Or how about exploring some of the small islands located in the waters surrounding North Jutland, which can be reached by small, cozy ferries.
It is fairly easy to get around by bus in North Jutland. Not only does the buses go within the individual cities, but of course you can also go from city to city.
It differs when the buses go: in the larger cities such as Aalborg and Frederikshavn, you can often catch a bus every 20 min. In small cities there are fewer buses and some only run during the summer time. You may also find night buses in the larger cities, which are ideal if you want to catch a drink in the city, but think that a cab is too costly.
In the buses you will find screens which show each single stop on the route - otherwise ask your driver.

The trains in North Jutland - and in Denmark in general - fare often and are very comfortable. You can buy your ticket at the train station, either in a machine or with a cashier.

During rush hour many people use the train and you are not guaranteed a seat with your normal ticket.
