Visit the many nature areas on Aalborg Coast and enjoy the beautiful nature along the coast.
The area in and around Lille Vildmose is absolutely amazing. Bring your family along and get close to the animals. Experience the Golden Eagle, wild boars and red deer. At Tofte forest the bog, which covers about 2000 hectares, is the remains of the southern part of the original raised bog. Here the deers forage in the winter and in the summer, birds like curlews and gruiformes breed.
Near the town of Dokkedal, you will find the moraine called Mulbjerge, which is characterized by its scenic view of the Kattegat and Lille Vildmose. The area reaches heights of 30 meter above sea level. In the southern part of Mulbjerge, Guldhøj (Golden Hill) is the tallest point, where the grass is kept down strictly through grazing. After a hike up the hill, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Kattegat. Via the snaking pathways, you will discover fields, pastures, woods and corrals for sheep and the like.
Teglværkssøerne is a beautiful natural resort, where clay used to be dug up for the tileworks (thereby the name, Tileworks Lakes). This created several natural lakes with a rich plant- and bird-life.The lakes are an excellent place for several birds, because it is teeming with different types of food. Mute swan, shelduck, cormorant and buzzards are examples of birds you may find in the area. The lakes also have freshwater fish, like European perch.
Koldkær Skov is a forest owned by Aalborg Municipality. It is located between Hou and Hals, spreading across 60 acres of land. It reaches all the way to the Kattegat, and was mainly comprised of moor. Today, however, it offers several different kinds of plant life, from smaller pine forests to oak, sand dunes and beach. A crooked stream snakes its way through the western part of the area, and several smaller animals live here.
163 of the 245 acres that makes up Vester Aslund Plantation is owned by Aalborg Municipality. In the lush woodland areas, there are hiking trails marked with colors to indicate the lengths of the paths. Several places along the routes, tables and benches have been set up, where you can enjoy your lunch. There are parking spaces near Hellighøje to the south, and here, you will find a campsite with shelters and a fire ring. The area is also an excellent choice for mushroom picking in the fall.
