Panorama route: Animal paradise

Denmark’s coastal wilderness!

Cold Hawaii

1. Animal paradise

The Thy National Park in North Jutland is a magnificent landscape of coastal heather dunes, woodlands and roaring North Sea waves. Here in the wilderness of the national park there are natural freshwater habitats for otters. Deer roam the woods and heathlands and you can even find a species of meat-eating plants. The 44 km cycling route passes the fishing hamlet of Nørre Vorupør, one of the few places in Scandinavia where large fishing vessels are still towed onto the sandy shore. Many of the cycling lanes cutting through the coastal nature and woodlands are designated for mountain biking. The National Park also offers the chance for other active holiday experiences including horse riding. You can also join the Thy National Park Marathon on 6 September 2014.

The Panorama initiative

Powered by Cycling: Panorama is a new initiative that makes it easier for holidaymakers in Denmark to experience some of the best the nation has to offer. The Panorama initiative offers 26 new looped cycling routes that branch out from two of Denmark’s most scenic national cycling route - the West Coast Route and the Berlin-Copenhagen Route. The short routes have been upgraded with new cycling infrastructure and an international hospitality quality labelling system - Bike+Bed. Many of these routes offer a unique chance to explore nature, heritage and family attractions in Denmark by pedal power.

New route signage

Bike+Bed quality labelling of bicycle friendly accommodation.
80 hostels, camping grounds, B&Bs and hotels are set to join the scheme in 2014.

Easy-to-book package tours via West Coast route's website and Berlin-Copenhagen's website!
