Water in Every Desirable Way
The bay/the North Sea:
When the weather permits bathing suits, blanket, and lunch basket, several facilities are to be reached a 15 - 30 minutes drive from here. You can chose between the family- and child safe bay (for instance the Black hills at Ringkøbing or Stadil bay) or the whole, long West-shore line with sand, waves, and cliffs either by yourselves or, at hot days, among thousands of others.
If the weather is bad or you just feel like indoor bathing , swimming baths or public baths are available within 5 – 20 minutes drive from here. Very good attractive swimming baths for the whole family are situated in Ulfborg, Holstebro, and Ikast..
If you like surfing, Ringkøbing bay and the west coast at Hvide Sande and Bork are suitable possibilities. If you want you can rent surfboards at Bork. Visit them here: Bork Havn
After 16th of June it may be possible to try canoeing on Hover stream for one day. This activity is for payment. The canoe can be fetched and returned at an address in Hover.
It is always possible to feel the wind at the west-coast, to listen to the energetic rumbling of the waves, and to tire yourselves out by playing in the cliffs. You can walk along the bays, experience the impressing bird life – for instance the flight of geese spring/autumn. You can enjoy the view from the bird turrets or from barbecue places strategically well placed by the State forest system. We shall gladly point out fit excursion resorts.
