Area / Attractions
Saltum beach lies only 900 metres from the campsite and is accessed from a pleasant path which passes between the campsite and the neighbouring nature reserve 'Little Norway'.
Before you reach the beach you pass through sand dunes and then you find yourself on a very wide golden beach which has blue flag status.
Alternatively you can drive, not only to the beach but also on the beach all the way down to Blokhus or up to Løkken!
The area around Saltum is known to be Jammerbugtens Alpine country - by Danish standards Saltum 100 meters hills almost count as mountains! Teeming with animals and fantastic nature experiences - not to mention peace and tranquility.
Behind the dunes, the area is characterized by large, hilly plantation areas with dunes, forests and nature trails. 10 meters from Guldager Camping is reserve Little Norway. The beautiful, protected forest and nature goes right down to the North Sea and perfect for hiking. From the viewpoint Guldagerhøj in Little Norway can enjoy the view over the Jammerbugten.
Right by a log cabin, the beach and also completely out in the forest you can find the amusement park Fårup Sommerland. Fårup is one of Denmark’s biggest tourist attractions with masses of wild, funny and insane water activities for the whole family. Everything from wild slides and Børnetivoli to Denmark’s greatest and wettest waterland. There are more than 60 amusements - and when first the entry is paid, all amusements and the water park are free.
News in 2017 - Hvirvelvinden
In the 2017 season, Fårup’s newest ride, Hvirvelvinden (the Whirlwhind), will take brave guests on a neck cracking slalom trip for the first time. In Hvirvelvinden people will be thrown up and down from a 19 meter height, at the same time as they spin around. It is a trip for the biggest daredevils - and clearly one of the wildest rides in Fårup ever!
Speed, excitement and fun for both large and small
The forest offers experiences for the whole family. The younger, for example, snatch a ride in Den røde baron” (The Red Baron), where the little pilots steer their own airplane. Another of the children’s favorites in Fårup is Egerntårnet (the Squirrel Tower), where you are lifted up to the tops of a tree, and hurtle to the ground in a free fall. For the larger speed demons there are the breakneck slides with plenty of action. Orkanen (The Hurricane runs) - the only slide in Scandinavia - both over and UNDER the water! It is also possible to try Denmark’s wildest accelerator in the slide Lynet (The Lightning), which shoots you off from 0 to 80 km/h in just two seconds. Or how about a trip in Falken (The Falcon), Denmark’s fastest wooden slide? Fårup is much more than fun slides. You can also romp with horse riding, canoe rides, shooting, bouncy castles, numerous trampolines, climbing frames or a trip through the giant playground. And then Fårup is above all fun in a true forest atmosphere!
Denmark’s largest water park
You will also find in Fårup Denmark’s largest heated Aquapark, where the whole family can splash in the wild waves of the Wave Basin, zip down the curl on Surf Hill or float together in huge bath rings in Vandslangen (the Water Hose). You can also try Vandkanonen (the Water Cannon), which is the world’s first outdoor water slide with a free fall and two loops. But start at the top, all the way up, in a little cabin. A moment after, the floor disappears under the feet, and you whiz off in free fall down in a closed tube and continue at high speed through two loops and end with a big splash!
When the water splashing is over, and the hair is dry, you can surprise your senses in the 4D cinema or laze in the shade of the trees and magic at the big grill-yourself area where a red-hot grill is ready - for free. In Fårup’s restaurants, the whole family can find their favorite foods – both in the delicious buffet and in the park’s many other eating places. If you are into organics, you can try the 100% organic restaurant, The Forest - Organic restaurant.
