Tour Description:

From the rowing club the tour goes past the centre of Thisted and the harbour. There is traffic in and out of the port, so watch out for other vessels and possible stern waves. Row further along the coast. At some places it is quite shallow. To begin with you pass Thisted Camping. Next location shortly after is Synopalhavnen - an old commercial port, which now houses "Thy Cable Park".Continue towards the Eshøj. Here is an opportunity for a rest at the shelter and you may go for a hike in Eshøj Plantage, a plantation with a wide variety of species of trees. About 3 km further on you arrive at Malle Beach. Here there are benches and tables to rest at and a public toilet. The next 10 kilometers is rich in bird life with different birds according to the season. Lønnerup Fjord can be reached through the dam at low tide. Alternatively, take your kayak up in the northern corner of the Hovsør Dam and make a little tour in the fjord before heading on. From Hovsør the tour goes past Hovsør Røn and Arup Dam, that separates Østerild Fjord from the Limfjord. Østerild Fjord is part of Vejlerne (a nature reserve), where you may observe more than 300 different bird species and 130 different breeding birds, so bring your binoculars. It is possible to stop at the Arup Dam and look into the Østerild Fjord with its rich birdlife. Before Feggesund you must pass Arup Holm. It is also fairly shallow here. By Feggesund there is a strong current and a risk of reflex waves. In addition a ferry crosses every 20 minutes, so caution is needed. It is possible to go ashore on the sandy beach just around the ferry port. Crossing from Sennels Hage to Arup Holm is only recommended for experienced paddlers and do not go alone, but stay in a group.
