A 90-kilometer-long west coast cannot be experienced in a single day.  But if 24 hours is all you have, here is a suggestion for an optimal use of your time.

Start your day with a morning stroll through the impressive landscape found in Lovns Halvø’s dramatic shapes and uncommon plant life. When you hear your stomach begin to rumble it’s time for lunch, which you take at the tradition-rich Hvalpsund Færgekro, which serves a fantastic stjerneskud (shooting star). From there you pass through Strandby and look in at the world’s largest hand-turned pot at the workshop of ceramist Askel Krog, who is only one of the many skilled artisans in the area.  From there it is a straight route to Ertebølle, where you have to see the 28-meter-high diatomite cliff from both its top and from the beach, where you can also take a quick dip off the swimming jetty.  After your swim treat yourself to a coffee and a piece of home-made bakery treats at Næsbydale Badehotel. This will give you renewed energy for visiting the Limfjord Museum in Løgstør Harbor.  Here you can almost smell the fresh Limfjord mussels that restaurant Kanalfogdens Køkken is steaming only 50 meters from the museum.  Sit down for a hard-earned dinner.  After a long and certainly needed night’s sleep at a cozy B&B, as a conclusion to your quick 24-hour trip along Himmerland’s West Coast you can visit Glenholm Winery – an authentic northern Jutland wine producer.  Here you can tour and taste the wines and perhaps conclude your trip with lunch in the orangery before continuing elsewhere. Drive carefully!
