Hike: Jegindø Rundt - "muslingeruten"
In the middle of Limfjord you will find the Jegindø island, which locals pronounce as “Jeenø”. The island has rich birdlife as well as
fish life. And if you are lucky enough, you will even have an opportunity to experience seals.
Around Jegindø – „the mussel route“ (15 km):
Jegindø was formed by the Ice Age’s landscape modelling and by the waves of the Stone Age’s Sea. Therefore, today it is part of UNESCO Geopark Vestjylland. The island has a rich bird- and fish life, and if you are lucky enough, you will even have an opportunity to experience seals. Besides that, Jegindø also is known for having many remains of the settlements from the Stone Age, so one can be sur-prised with a rare artifact from the past.
The name “The Mussel Trail” comes from the close relationship between the human and water, at the same time there are being caught lots of shellfish in that part of Limfjord. In Jegindø harbour there are still activities connected to fishing and shellfish.
The Mussel Route is packed with 13 wonderful experiences, about which you can find more information in the brochuren "A hiking guide to the island of Jegindø"
