In North Jutland, you have plenty of options when it comes to maritime activities by or on the water. Go fishing by the lakes, rivers, and in the sea, go sailing, try your hand at surfing or rent a kayak or canoe. Your opportunities are many and exciting. 

With the many fjords and coastlines, experiences by the water are a natural part of your holiday in North Jutland. Feel the maritime vibe and atmosphere in the many harbor villages. Each village offers unique experiences and characteristics. Set your sail for a sailing holiday and cruise around the North Jutland waters and visit the local areas.

Angling in North Jutland

North Jutland encompasses all types of fishing and especially along the west coast, you have plenty of options to go on a fishing trip. Try your hand at pier and fjord fishing or visit one of the many streams, lakes, or put-and-take lakes. If you want to try your hand at deep-sea fishing, take a fishing trip to the Yellow Reef in the North Sea. The boats M/S Albatros and Star Ocean sail from Hirtshals, and in Thy.

Do not deceive yourself for a trip to Thorupstrand by Jammerbugten, where you can explore how traditional, sustainable coastal fishing is maintained by local fishermen. Fishing trips with the boat Nordsøen are offered here.

Canoe and kayak

Apart from boat trips on the fjords or on the sea, it is possible to go on a canoe- or kayak tour. Canoes can be rented at Uggerby StreamVoer Stream, and Lindenborg Stream. Each of them offers different routes throughout the landscape. Along the routes, you will find shelters and some of the coziest inns in North Jutland. Vestre Fjordpark in Aalborg, Lindholm Fjordpark and Mariager Fjord are also offering kayaks for rent and not only canoes.
