Join us on one Denmark's most beautiful walks!
It runs through Denmark's first national park - Thy National Park. Five days with four different small inns and hotels, each with a seaside location or nestling the forest, and each with their special menus: fresh fish, local national park produce and traditional Danish dishes.
The hike takes place, with expert from the Danish Nature Agency.
During the hike, they will do their best to ensure that you get to see, taste and experience the local nature, in all of its varied glory!
Every day has its different nature - and every day, with your guide, you are led through some of Denmark's finest bird reserves, dune plantations, beaches, lakes and wild nature, with the added pleasure of being by the sea, near charming seaside and fishing villages.

Then we follow the rescue road over Lyngby Heath to the old fishing place of Lyngby, where a few pioneers settled in 1864. From here we go north towards the fishing village, Stenbjerg.
From Stenbjerg Inn, we leave at 09.00 in the "fisherman's footsteps", past the church and the first lifeboat house, down to the old landing place for fisher boats. From here we follow the beach to Nr. Vorupør, where a few big fishing boats set off directly from the beach... like in the "olden days"! North of Vorupoer we come back on to the rescue the road, which we follow to Bøgsted Rende and onwards to Vangså Heath and the old fishing settlement of Vangså.
