More options for landing in Kolding City. You can enjoy lunch at one of the city’s many cafés or restaurants.
You can sail all the way to the Marina, but remember you have to go back again.
Stallerup Lake (2 hours)
If you want a little calmer water, we recommend the trip to Stallerup Lake . The route is perfect for you who are a beginner.
You sail above Harteværket (you turn in the ticket sales when you arrive) and out towards Dons Søerne.
It is not allowed to sail out on Stallerup Lake, but only to “The sunken boat”, which is located at the beginning of the lake.
At the “sunken boat” you will find a jetty where you can make a stop before the trip goes back towards Harteværket. Inland there is a table / bench set where you can enjoy your packed lunch.
Only canoes from Harteværket can sail to Stallerup Lake
On a canoe trip on Kolding Å
From Harteværket you first sail approx. 500 m. Down the drainage channel from the hydropower plant.
Here you meet Kolding Å, which i.a. is known for its many sea trout.
Here you can sail either with the water current down to Kolding City, or against the current, out under the motorway to the viewing platform and the shelter. In both directions the river winds in the beautiful river valley,
where one can enjoy the sight of cattle grazing the meadows along the creek.
If you choose to sail down towards the city, you first meet the road bridge at Plovfuren and approx. 2 km. further down the river you come to Vestre Ringgade.
Here, too, the river winds, and here you can feel completely in your own world, even if you approach the city.
From Vestre Ringgade down to Kolding city center, you sail with houses on both sides and experience the city in a completely different way.
It takes approx. 40 min. to sail to the city center. You need to calculate extra time to sail back as you sail against the current.
We do not recommend that smaller children sail in a canoe / kayak themselves, as they will have difficulty steering the boat themselves.
