All the colours of the rainbow can be seen in the sky, when the colourful, dancing, gigantic kites unfold.

The kites are followed by both wind- and kitesurfers, drones and motorized parachutes. It may be possible for you to see it all from on high.

Actually, there will be helicopter sightseeing flights and even a possibility to watch parachute jumbing or try it yourself.

The youngest visitors may let their teddy bear try parachute jumbing. On the beach between Blokhus and Løkken you may also have the possibility to try a Kite Buggy taxi, which will drive you along the beach with the wind blowing in the sail.

Talented kite flyers from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Germany will fly their dynamic kites.

I.a. there will be team flying with four to ten kiteflyers practising the difficult task letting  their kites with four strings dance together in the sky.

The weekend also offers the visitors to fly their own kites in the area. The kites may be constructed in the creative kite workshops. Depending on the weather, you may have the opportunity to meet paragliders and try paragliding yourself, as a passenger.

It will become quite an extraordinary weekend, during which the long beach between Blokhus and Løkken will be crowded with kite experts, enthusiasts, children, and grown-ups, who will follow and control the spectacular kites dancing ballet against the blue sky.
