Out in nature - in Hjørring and the surrounding area

The entire area has a beautiful landscape and a vigorous nature. In the Spring everything turns green and nature sets the scene for a pleasent picnic. In the Summer it is possible to find green areas in the middle of the town, where you can enjoy the sun and a quick break, while the children play at the playground. When Autumn comes the hunt for natural treasures like mushrooms and berries begins.
