If you're planning an active holiday, Aalborg Fjordland offers you plenty of opportunities. Here you'll find great angling conditions, fantastic golf courses, beautiful biking paths and plenty of other fun activities.

Fishing in Aalborg Fjordland

Aalborg Fjordland offers you good fishing lakes and streams, and with the fjord just around the corner, you're never far from a great spot to fish from.

Dust off your fishing pole

Aalborg Fjordland has places ideal for angling – both in the fjord, in streams and in put'n'take lakes like Himmerlands Fiskepark.
Before you start fishing, it is important to buy a license; if you are between 18 and 65 years old, you must purchase a license before you go angling.

For more information and to buy a license, check out The Danish AgriFish Agency's website

Catch a sea trout or a garfish from the coast

You can angle from the coast many places along the Limfjord. For this purpose, Sebbersund, Klitgårdsfiskerlehe and Nørholm are all very good places. It is free to angle along the coast – just remember to buy your license.

Free fishing ground in Halkær Å

Near Halkær Mølle Naturcenter you will find a 1.4 km long angling path from which you can angle as much as you would like in Halkær Å. Here, you can angle for, among others, the brown trout and the sea trout. Furthermore, the fishing ground is located with easily accessible parking facilities and the streamis  within easy reach as well in case you are walking-impaired or have children with you.

On a bike in Aalborg Fjordland

When exploring and experiencing Aalborg Fjordland, your bike is your best friend. A number of marked cycling routes cut through the area, and at the same time the multiple tiny and twined roads of the area invite you to explore the area on your own. Here you’ll find a varied landscape and lots of opportunities with regard to experiences and accommodation - all within a relatively small area.

Cykel fra Aalborg

Aalborg Fjordland is an excellent destination when going on a cycling trip from Aalborg. The area is perfect for a weekend trip with one or two overnight stays, but the area also offers you opportunities for great experiences for several days, and, furthermore, it is easy to continue the trip along the Limfjord path.

You can get into Nibe from two different cycling routes, which creates good chances of a varied trip. The national cycle path, the Limfjord path – regional cycling route 12 – stretches from the centre of Aalborg, along the Limfjord, passes by Nørholm and continues to Nibe. Bjergbanestien, on the other hand, follows the closed railway between Nibe and Godthåb/Svenstrup. From Svenstrup there is a cycle path for the last stretch to Aalborg. For the biggest part of Bjergbanestien, the path is car free, and for that reason the path is an excellent choice if you are on a trip with children. 

Both cycling routes are approx. 25 km.

Golf in Aalborg Fjordland

Aalborg Fjordland offers you several great golfing experiences with two great golf courses and magnificient nature as the setting.

Experience Aalborg Fjordland from the water and enjoy incredible nature.

Nibe and Halkær Broad is an excellent choice if you wish to go sea kayaking. Here you'll find protected and varied waters with lots of islets and small islands and a plentiful bird and animal life, which you can get close to when you slide through the water. Furthermore, the area offers great opportunities to experience ducks, geese, swans and seals. Remember to bring your fishing pole – maybe you'll catch a sea trout for your dinner while you row along.

On longer trips in a kayak

Along the Limfjord, a web of primitive places to stay overnight which you can row all the way into, are located – and of course that goes for Aalborg Fjordland as well. Here you'll find coastal areas to spend the night in Nørholm, Halkær and Staun, and in the middle of everything, Nibe Camping, where you can row directly onto the beach, is located. Feel free to use the facilities to take a shower, wash and dry your clothes, and take care of other need you may have. At the primitive places providing overnight accommodation in Nørholm and Halkær, shelters are located, and in Staun you'll find two tiny, red angler houses designed for overnight stay.

At several places along the broad, the water is shallow and with multiple smaller reefs, which means it is a good idea to bring a nautical chart along when you 'leave port'.

Where does the journey begin?

If you arrive in Aalborg Fjordland with a kayak on the top of your car and wish to either go on a day trip or let the area be the starting point for a longer trip, it is possible to park your car and get your kayak into the water at the marina in Nibe. Other places to get your kayak into the water are Staun Havn and Halkær Å (near the primitive place Halkær Voldsted which provides overnight accommodation). Remember to park in a way that does not disturb the residents and daily users of the area.
