Along the Limfjord you will find a chain of fine small yacht harbors.  They are atmospheric travel destinations, whether you come by water or land.  Heist your sails or pack your bike bags and take as one example this little tour of a handful of the most atmospheric.

The first stop on your trip is Rønbjerg Harbor, a place for many fun activities for both children and adults.  You can either visit Landal Rønbjerg’s tropical swimming area, or the climbing and challenge courses in the woods.  There is also the possibility of going on a seal-watching safari with the Livø ferry Miniline, which departs from Rønbjerg.  If you would rather continue on, the next stop is Livø Harbor. Livø is known as Nature’s  quiet zone and contains almost all of Denmark’s natural environments (except for high cliffs) as well as having a wonderful jazz festival in August. Back on the mainland, Hvalpsund Harbor is the next stop: here you can experience an actively working port environment with its traditional fishing industry as well as good places to eat. Løgstør Harbor is the last stop on your trip. Here you can immerse yourself in all things maritime.  Note the fleeting passage of history with a visit to the Limfjord Museum, where you and your family can learn about fisheries and maritime navigation or tickle a flatfish in the Experience Center. Along the harbor in Løgstør you will find restaurants with a great atmosphere beyond the summer season,  In Løgstør you can also find provisions for the rest of your trip along the Limfjord, and in September your trip can end in a really festive way with the Maritime Festival, with races, large wooden ships, music and a happy atmosphere in the friendly City of Mussels.

24 hours on the West Coast of Himmerland

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.

Muslingebyen

The name Løgstør is mentioned for the first time in 1514, but in more recent times the town has been known as The City of Mussels due to its central location in the Limfjord mussel industry.  The town is rich in history and has an exciting market town atmosphere. 

Livø

Effectively shielded from the nearest highway by 4-5 kilometers of sky-blue Limfjord waves is hidden one of the Himmerland coast’s best-kept secrets.  There are no cars on Livø and farming on the island is 100% ecological.

From Ice Age to Present

The natural and cultural environment of Vesthimmerland provides a unique glimpse into Denmark’s history over 55 million years — from fossils to Stone Age culture and Viking Age fortifications to medieval cloisters and 19th-century manor estates.

Beaches

Ninety kilometers of west-oriented coastline provides ample opportunity to wrest a couple of days out of one’s vacation calendar in order to sunbathe on the beach while the little ones swim and play in the sand.
