The Coastal Route

Rough and gentle – for body and soul

A 150 km nature experience on foot round the island of Mors in the Limfjord. A trip that takes you through a completely unique and fantastic variety of landscapes and natural formations.

The route follows beaches, woodland roads, narrow paths, field paths, passes through meadows with grazing animals and along small asphalted roads.
The Coastal Route opens up a host of possibilities for a trip or holiday with plenty of quality time, healthy challenges and fairytale experiences, no matter if you are on your own or with others.

It’s wonderful to walk along the water’s edge, but also good to vary the trip so you also have terra firma underfoot and come inland. It is from here you have the fantastic views – in over the island and out across the fjord.

Ø – en valgstavn
Fastholdt
af to broer,
duvende
næsten umærkeligt
på fjordens vand,
centrum
for et af verdens
allerstørste himmelrum,
sådan er
denne foldede flade
på trehundredetreogtres
stilfærdige grønne
kvadratkilometer,
dækkende over dramatiske
dybder,
opfyldt af millioner af tons
kridt og moler,
sand og istidsler blandet
med prosaisk grus og overtrukket
med poetisk muld,
alt sammen kaldet Mors,
og trods navnets
medicinske betydning
alligevel
levende,
gennemtygget af regnorme,

befølt af insekter,
befløjet af fugle,
betrampet af firbenede dyr
med godmodigt mæle
og af mennesker,
for også mennesker
vandrer rundt her
og lægger mål til mæle
og hænder
til dagens og nattens sysler,
også mennesker
ånder her deres drømme
om dagligdag ud,
mens tidens blå krusninger
glider forbi
derude på fjorden.
