#1 - North Sea Trail: Agger - Bulbjerg
Thy National Park

Length: 58.3 mi • Est. Multi-day
The North Sea Trail between Agger and Bulbjerg uses the old Redningsvej (rescue road). The route consists primarily of grass-covered ruts in a magnificent and slightly hilly dune landscape with wide views of the dune areas. From Klitmøller to Bulbjerg you walk close to the sea, either on the beach itself, on the high coastal slope between Hanstholm and Vigsø, or on ruts close behind the sea dune. From Klitmøller to Hanstholm it is not possible to follow the old rescue road, because the new, heavily trafficked road between Klitmøller and Hanstholm is laid where the rescue road was. The trail therefore goes down to the beach. It is the only stretch where the path goes on the sea floor and where you experience the sea up close. On the entire stretch you have Hanstholmknuden with Hanstholm lighthouse as a landmark.Show more

The railway between Aalborg and Hadsund was in function between 1900 and 1969. It was a private railway. With the coming of the new railway network, the route fell out of use. Nowadays it's a beautiful cycling and hiking trail. You still pass a few preserved pieces of the old tracks.Show more
