The Jutland aquarium in Thyborøn is arranging e.g. oyster safaris as well as seafood-safaris, where you, accompanied by an interesting story, can hunt the treasures of the sea. Together with Seaside Safari in Thorsminde you can also go on a trip to the bird island in Thorsminde or listen to a fish story while purchasing fresh fish.
Visit e.g. Thyborøn, Thorsminde or Hanstholm harbor and go to a fish auction where you can buy fresh fish to take home with you. You can do the same at Hirtshals harbor where the North Sea Oceanarium arranges also guided tours, so that you can hear more about both the auction and the fishermen life.
If you also want to know more about the life of the fishermen at sea, you can go on board of a real fishing boat from Northsea Fishing, after they are pulled into water via a permanently fixed spool at Thorupstrand. This place is amongst others know for the blue cutters. After setting sail you get a 2 hours sailing trip with a lot of fresh air and a fantastic view of the bird cliff Bulbjerg.
Back on the mainland you should not miss tasting a freshly made fish meatball from Thorupstrand Fiskehus, which is together with the sea view and the blue cutters an exquisite pleasure.
Another possibility to combine experiences with great food can be found inland where you can consider joining a tour in Madsmedjen's kitchen which is working according to the principle 'fire, herbs and gastronomy'. The tour is addressed to groups and you will help find ingredients in person and prepare them before you sit down at the table and enjoy the results of the common work.
You can also join a real safari together with Hedevang Outdoor where you, in boots and armed with a fishing net, go hunting for oysters in the northwest jutlandic larder: the sea!
That is just cooking out west!
