Bathing lakes in Northern Jutland

In Northern Jutland there are many beautiful, idyllic and accessible lakes either surrounded by wide meadows, tall trees or smaller sandy beaches.

Most of the lakes are forest lakes where you can experience a calm and family-friendly oasis in the middle of the forest sensing nature from a different perspective. We suggest combining a cosy picnic with various water activities. One of the advantages of bathing in forest lakes is that the water heats up easily on sunny days and that the conditions are good for both children and adults.
