There is plenty of room for camping and sports (no dogs please). There are forest walks, a brand new playground, and a “child-friendly” beach at the nearby fjord.

West Jutland …
… has much to offer; and as the Kiwi weekend is earlier this year, you may have time to use more than the weekend to explore. There are numerous camping grounds in the area, see www.visitholstebro.dk and www.visitlemvig.dk.
Skalstrup is only 10 km from the west coast, and at Fjaltring, høfte Q, there are shelters with toilets and showers where you can stay the night, see www.fjaltring.dk, and there are Japanese gardens and the Flamingo Naturpark near Skalstrup.
Or you can contact one of us listed below for other ideas.
Remember to bring
- Whatever you want to eat for the BBQ on Friday.
- Meat and veg for the hangi on Saturday.
- Camping/eating equipment etc.
- Outdoor chairs for eating and lolling around on.
- Musical instruments, sports gear etc – there’s a good playing field.
- Chilly bins – there are fridges, but it makes life easier if we don’t have them filled up with beer & other drinks.
