Are you bursting with energy when on vacation? Or do you want to be? If so, Himmerland West Coast is your perfect destination.
It’s well known that the wind often blows briskly over the waters of the Limfjord, but for any sports-mad person who also loves swimming this has its obvious advantages. The beach at Trend – Cold Hawaii’s shallow-watered younger sibling – is perhaps a little less hip than its name suggests but is nonetheless one of Denmark’s best spots for kite- and wind-surfing. There are also ample opportunities for experiencing the Vesthimmerland countryside by bicycle. A finely meshed network of bike trails crisscrosses the entire region, and while riding you can experience everything from expansive stretches of moors, windblown coastal areas, river valleys, and lakes. You can rent mountain bikes at Landal Rønbjerg or Himmerland Golf and Spa Resort and go off road into forests and along the beaches.
For days with less energetic activities, you might make use of the many good opportunities for pleasure fishing along the coast. There are numerous hotspots where the sea trout slaps its tail and jumps onto your hook. Or you can go swing a golf club; there are fantastic views from the golf courses in both Løgstør and Hvalpsund. And for those more proficient you will find absolute world-class courses at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort, which has hosted the European Tour Made In Denmark. And, if your desire for activity still hasn’t disappeared, you can always tie on a pair of running shoes and test yourself against the varying surfaces of the nearly 90 kilometers of coastline. You should be able to find a new and untried route every day of your vacation.
