Without a guide
Thy National Park has a myriad of roads and paths that take you through varying and magnificent landscapes. You can hike in forests, on heaths, in dunes and on the limestone islands of the past. There are interesting tours for visitors who prefer a short marked route, and for more experienced hikers who want to experience the deserted landscape on foot.
A good route for anyone is Redningsvejen (the North Sea Trail) along the dunes by the sea. This route is marked by a lifeboat. The route starts at the ferry harbour on Agger Tange and runs through the national park to Hanstholm and on to Bulbjerg. In the past, Redningsvejen was used by the rescue services when they had to rescue shipwrecked seafarers who stranded on the dangerous coast. This trail is very close to the sea and the dunes, and you can sense the windy and tough beauty of the area. There are primitive camping sites on the route, particularly in the plantations. You can also spend the night in inns, B&Bs or similar.
Throughout the national park, nature and man have created beautiful lookout points where hikers can stop and enjoy the spectacular view of the vast area. From the top of Hanstholm lighthouse in the north and Lodbjerg lighthouse in the south, you can really sense the grandeur of the area.
