The island of Fur is dominated by some clay cliffs which have been pushed up by the ice during the last ice age. The cliffs has many layers and are well worth going out to see – particularly if you haven’t just seen the similar cliffs on Mors where you find some very interesting clay cliffs as well at places like Hanklit, Ejerslev Havn and Feggesund. Even if you have been there Knudeklitterne is still worth the short hike out there.
One great bonus about Knudeklinterne is you will start and end your walk at Fur Bryghus which is the brew house of the island and they have a restaurant as well. You can rest at this place and fill up before the hike or enjoy a good and well deserved beer after the hike.
The walk from the brew house to the cliffs is fairly easy. You walk along a good gravel trail along a little clay canyon until you reach the end of the road where you can see the cliffs. If you walk to the end of the road you can enjoy a little view and then go back – you haven’t made it to the highest point yet. When you walk back you walk a little uphill but it is an easy trek and you will be rewarded with a great view of the clay cliff. You can look across the water and actually see the cliff of Feggesund in the distance from up here.
On the way back you can stop at a little view point where you can look out into the clay canyon and then it will probably be time to go back to your car – unless you have brought your own bike to the island – like so many others. In that case you will beat all the hikers back to the car and race off to the next attractions before the people in their cars.
