Jammerbugten in North Jutland

The North Sea's wide sandy beaches, beautiful natural surroundings, and magical experiences await you in Jammerbugten.

Jammerbugten in North Jutland is rich on excitement – from wooden paths along the shore as well as in the authentic fishing culture in the towns by the sea. Here, the local aquavit, the snaps, should be enjoyed in the warm rays of the sun. When temperatures creep above 20 degrees, this bay in North Denmark is a beautiful landscape to be explored.

When the trees come into leaf, and the scent from flowers rises above the foliage, it is time to put on your hiking shoes or bicycle helmet and set your course for North Jutland to experience a most wonderful active holiday in Denmark's most amazing scenery. This is the spot where Danish TV2 shot the series "The Beach Hotel", precisely because of the unique nature. A visit to Fårup Sommerland will entertain and occupy your children for an entire day.

Attractions and experiences

One of the area's main attractions, besides the outdoor sports activities, is the fantastic mountain-bike trail systems available in the popular holiday towns Slettestrand and Blokhus. Professional instructors will provide instruction in techniques, thus ensuring that you will indeed be prepared for exploring the varied terrain where you will encounter all levels of difficulty. The route through the Svinkløv dune plantation ranks among Denmark's 10 best tracks and the meandering track is for both elite sportsmen and novices.

If you prefer to enjoy the fine weather on foot, then the Jammerbugten area provides an impressive string of nature experiences. On a backdrop of sun reflections glinting on lake waters, gently fluttering heather and moss-clad stones, your everyday troubles disappear; and your thoughts blend in with bird migration and wide vistas. The region is rich in natural experiences – for instance, the dune plantation, Blokhus Klitplantage, would make an excellent stop where you can even bake your own bread for lunch. The dough is supplied by the nearby baker's, and nature's own oven will guarantee the most delicious Jammerbugt-bread. Later, you can take a stroll by the Blokhus beach or – which is special to Denmark – you can take your car for a long stretch on the beach, right alongside the water.
