Bathing at the fjords

Photo: Mette Johnsen

The fjords in Northern Jutland may be conceived as a nice contrast to the from time to time more vivid sea east and west of the mainland.

Experience the fjords

The North Jutland fjords offer both relaxation, child-friendly beaches, and great opportunities for water activities. The advantages of swimming in the fjords are that the water is calm, without large waves and strong currents, which occur more often by the North Sea.

Both by the Limfjord and Mariager Fjord you will find fantastic open-air water basins and harbor pools, which are attractive places on hot summer days. Here are facilities that can be used by the whole family. Along the North Jutland fjords, there are great conditions for wind and kite surfing, renting or bringing your own SUP boards, or experiencing the world of canoeing and kayaking with family and friends.
After a long day in the sun and water, there are plenty of opportunities to visit restaurants and cafés in the areas.

The nature around the fjords and along the beaches is rich in different plants and animal life, where you can also be lucky to find fossils in the cliffs.
