North Denmark: New hotels, surfing, Harley-Davidson tours

Besides its expanding range of coastal accommodation, North Jutland is also known as Cold Hawaii.

In addition to its increasing range of foodie experiences, the region of North Jutland has more for tourists than meets the eye, Visit Denmark says, including surfing throughout the year and tours by Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

The northwest coast offers some of the best surfing conditions in northern Europe, and thanks to the similarity between its wind conditions and the famous US state has earned the region the nickname Cold Hawaii.

At Klitmøller, for example, there are 31 different surfing spots, and since 2010 this has been the location for the international surfing competition Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup, to be held this year in September.

Beginners can also take advantage of the north Atlantic rollers with courses at the Cold Hawaii Surf Camp, while along the coast at Løkken a new surf school, North Shore Surf, has opened also offering paddle boarding, yoga and a spa and sauna.

At the region’s Thy National Park, the Book a Biker experience offers the chance to discover the park together with the roar of a Harley-Davidson. Bikers will pick guests up at an arranged place and drive out to the national park. Helmets, gloves and jackets are provided.

“From beautiful and rugged Stenbjerg, where fishing boats dot the beach, tours continue to the coast at Klitmøller and Hanstholm lighthouse, from which there is a magnificent view of Thy and the National Park,” Visit Denmark says.

Refreshed hotels
For visits to Aalborg, the Radisson Blu Limfjord has just completed a redesign. With an emphasis on new Nordic décor and Danish design furniture, it has refurbished all 188 rooms as well as the restaurant, bar and lobby.

On the beach in the coastal town of Løkken, the new Hotel Løkken Strand can be a base for a holiday on the West Jutland coast. Located in one of the oldest buildings in town, an old school dating from 1926, it has been redesigned in classic Danish style with the old gym serving as breakfast room and restaurant.

And in June last year the Strandhotellet Blokhus opened, designed with a nod to the old beach-style hotels of the 1920s and 1930s, with architect-designed panels, handmade doors and retro windows.
