The nature is something very special in Sæby, where there is a short distance to both large forest area and child-friendly sandy beaches. The large forest area is called Sæbygård Skov and is located right near Sæbygård Castle, after which the forest is named. In the summer season, Sæbygård has a cozy café, which serves coffee and cake. Sæbygård Forest has a cozy stream and adorned with beech trees and steep hills, which gives a very special atmosphere.
In the forest you will find beautiful and challenging hiking, running and mountain bike routes, which can make your sweat while you enjoy the beautiful nature. Sæby has Kløverstierne, which are hiking and biking routes that run through both the town and the forest. Kløverstierne each have their own length from 2.5 km to 21.1 km, so there is a route for each level.
If you want to spend time in nature, but at a slower pace, in the evening you can go on a bat safari just 100 meters away from the square. A new dissemination site has been established here, where it is possible to see a lot of the mysterious bats. The dissemination site is located right here, as it is one of the best places in Vendsyssel to see bats.
