The Jutland Aquarium in Thyborøn is a paradise for nature-interested children and adults. The aquarium shows fish that live in the North Sea and the Limfjord. The family can watch and touch the animals, find amber in the indoor sandy beach and explore the children's submarine. Take guided tours in the Traktorbuss where you can catch small animals for the aquarium or take a boat trip on oyster safari, seal safari and gourmet safari.
At JyllandsAkvariet (Jutlands Aquarium) in Thyborøn by the North Sea you get an up-close encounter with the many different and colourful fish species that live in the North Sea and the Limfjord.
Come, see, touch, follow and help feed the fish that swim around and live well in the aquariums in Thyborøn.
Maybe you dare to grab a crab or stroke a catshark on its back?
On certain days, you can help feed the sharks, rays, and flatfish in our touch pools. Explore our children’s submarine and go searching for amber on our indoor beach. You may keep the amber you find.
We have also thought about the family four-legged member - Take your dog with you and let the dog romp on our agility course!
Nature safari: Join us and experience the great nature around Thyborøn when we go on a nature safari by tractor bus. We drive out into the Limfjord along an embankment where we explore and take a closer look at the fish and small animals on shallow water near the water’s edge. If we’re lucky we can see a special bird or a cute seal on the way.
Seal safari: Enjoy the nature from the seaside and see the seals up-close while they are resting on the sand banks when we go on a seal safari in our fastgoing boats with glass windows in the bottom.
Amber safari: Have a breath of fresh air from the North Sea on one of our amber safaris – where you get good advice about where, how, and when you can find amber along the West Coast.
Oyster safari: Our oyster safari is one of our most popular tours. One of the best delicacies, the Limfjord’s oyster, lives in the waters of the Limfjord. Join us during the oyster season when we gather the oysters and prepare them on a charcoal barbecue as well as taste them raw.
We have expanded our shark’s maternity clinic – come and see the shark’s eggs and baby sharks from the ”maternity ward” to daycare until they swim around in the big aquariums.
Open all year – activities all year round.
If you’re a group, family, friends who want an unforgetable experience, you’re welcome to call us or send an email. We’re always ready to plan a day to suit your wishes.
