Blåbjerg Klitplantage is a public forest located in the area between Henne Strand and the town of Nymindegab.
From Henne Strand it is only a short ride back to West Coast Cycle Route and stage 4. Now the route takes you north through the beautiful dune plantation of Blåbjerg Klitplantage where you can find some of the best mountain bike routes in Denmark. In this area, you will cycle through the Danish West Coast Nature Park which covers an area of 22,500 hectares along the coastline from Blåvandshuk to Nymindegab. This nature park has been certified by the Danish Outdoor Council and hosts a varied biodiversity and wildlife.
You continue through a long stretch of forest and then you get to the large summer cottage areas of Houstrup and Nymindegab. From here, the landscape opens up and you continue on narrow gravel roads and summer cottage paths in the dunes of Holmsland Klit. This is a rolling landscape with a fantastic view of the inlet of Ringkøbing Fjord in several places. You can also travel this last part on an asphalt pathway next to the road.
Some 10 kilometres before reaching Hvide Sande, the route takes you past the sea mark Haurvig Sømærke which stands proudly on top of the dune. Give your bicycle a rest and walk to the top of the dune to enjoy the marvellous view of the sea, the inlet and the dunes. Just south of Hvide Sande, you can often find fast windsurfers and kitesurfers in the inlet of Ringkøbing Fjord.
