One of Denmark's handful of newly protected spaces, Thy National Park stretches 55km south along the North Sea coast from Hanstholm to Agger Tange, covering an area of 244 sq km of coastline, dunes, lakes, pine forest and moors. There are plenty of windswept, wide-open spaces to access: marked hiking, cycling and horse-riding trails, bird-watching opportunities, plus a good dose of history in fishing hamlets and WWII-era German bunkers.
Thy Ultra Trail follows the approximately 80 km long Vestkyststi from Bulbjerg to Agger. The trail follows long stretches of the old life and is marked with wooden poles with the lifeboat as logo. There will, however, in critical areas be clear marking in the form of mine strip or the like.
The route makes through heath, plantation, beach and small and large fishing community. Agger, Lyngby, Stenbjerg, Nr. Vorupør, Vangså, Klitmøller, Hanstholm, Vigsoe and Lild - just as it passes near Lodbjerg lighthouse and the Hanstholm lighthouse.
The substrate will be a mix of sand, beach, small paths, firm gravel roads and some asphalt occasionally through some of the towns. On the stretch between Klitmøller and Hanstholm followed the bike path!
