Skrænt på Mors

Hanklit & Feggeklit

Along the coastline of the Limfjord on Nordmors, the characteristic MoCLay cliff rise above the water and tells us about our past. On the northern shore of Mors, you will find the impressive MoClay cliffs. The most well-known are Hanklint and Feggeklit, which are on the UNESCO tentative.


Hanklit is 61 meters high and approx. 1 km long. It is impressive both from the top and when you walk along the beach. From the top, there is a stunning view of Thisted bay, Thy, and Mors. If the weather is calm, there are tables and benches at the top where you can eat some food while enjoying the fantastic view. If you walk on the beach under Hanklit, you can see how MoClay, stones, fossils, etc. are layered, forms a unique pattern, and tells the story of past volcanic eruptions.

You can experience Feggeklit if you take the ferry across Feggesund. The unique MoClay hill is 25 meters high, 1 km long, and 300 meters wide. On the east side of the hill, you will find the MoClay, which is definitely worth a visit. The peninsula is a Natura 2000 site, which means that it is protected and worthy of protection.

According to an old legend, Feggeklit was the place where Hamlet killed his evil stepfather, King Fegge. The king had killed his brother in envy and married his wife Geruth - Hamlet's mother. King Fegge is said to have been buried at the top of Feggeklit, where a set of large stones still indicates a burial site. In 1929, a memorial stone was erected for the legendary figures.

You will find MoCLay in the western part of the Limfjord, where the most impressive places are on Fur and Mors. The MoClay was formed about 54-56 million years ago at the bottom of the sea that once covered the area. The MoClay is unique and can only be found at a few places on earth. It consists of deposits and contains the world's best-preserved ash layer, which tells of the formation of the globe and the volcanism that separated the continents and opened up the Atlantic Ocean. In addition to its impressive geological history, MoCLay is also known for its many, well-preserved fossils of both the animals and plants.
