Bike Touring Highlight
The Stadil fjord is (despite the name) about 1730 hectares of freshwater lake, which is located about 5 km northwest of Ringkobing and about two kilometers from the North Sea beach in the Danish Jutland. The lake is a shallow lake with a maximum depth of just 2.5 meters. In the southeastern part lies the approximately 100 ha large public island Hindo, which is connected to the mainland by a small bridge. Stadil, Ringkobing and Vest Stadil Fjord were originally a large contiguous area, but after drainage, the connection between the fjords is confined to a narrow channel from Vest Stadil fjord to Stadil Fjord and the Vona outflow, which flows into Ringkobing Fjord. The Stadil Fjord also absorbs the waters of the rivers MadumA, TimA, SundA and HoverA as well as some smaller streams. At the beginning of the 1990s, the lake was affected by large amounts of nitrogen and
Phosphorus contaminated, resulting in poor water quality. However, the lake was saved and is now one of the cleanest lakes in Denmark.
The Stadil Fjord, together with the Vest Stadil Fjod, became a Ramsar area. H. a protected wetland of international importance.
A few kilometers south is the Ringkobing Fjord, which is also a Ramsar area.
From the bridge you can almost watch the whole lake
