Description

Situated in northwest Jutland, Thy National Park is a beautiful nature preserve and the oldest national park of Denmark. Due to overexploitation of the land it was transformed into drifting sands. In 1800 the area was replanted in order to stop the drifting, work which took a century to get result. Today the park consists primarily of windy dunes and meadows littered with rare plants and even rarer birds. The park also has some historical sites dating from prehistoric times and WWII including graves, bunkers, a fortress, and batteries. Some of the buildings are open to visitors.

#1 - North Sea Trail: Agger - Bulbjerg
Thy National Park
moderateYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray StarGray Star(4)
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
