Kolding Å

Boat trip along Kolding Å

From Harteværket you sail about 500 meters down the drainage canal. Here you’ll enter Kolding Å, known for it’s many sea trouts.

From here you can either sail with the current towards Kolding City, or against the current towards under the highway to the lookout and shelter.
In both directions the stream twists into the beautiful river valley, where you can enjoy the sight of creatures grassing along the stream.

If you choose to sail towards the city, you’ll first encounter the viaduct at Plovfuren and about 2 km further down you’ll arrive at Venstre Ringgade.

From Venstre Ringgade towards the city you’ll sail along houses on both sides and experience the city in a new light.

The trip to the city is about 40 minutes. You’ll have to add extra time going back because you’ll be going against the current.

We do not recommend that children sail their own canoe or kayak, since they’ll have trouble controlling the boat on their own.

Stallerup Lake

If you want calmer waters we recommend the trip to Stallerup Lake. The route is perfect for beginners.

You’ll sail across from Harteværket and towards the Dons Lakes.

It’s not allowed to sail onto Stallerup Lake, only to “the sunken boat” which is near the beginning of the lake.

At “the sunken boat” you’ll find docking stations, where you can make a quick stop before heading back.
On land you’ll find a table with benches where you can enjoy you lunch.

Stallerup is only available for canoes sailing from Harteværket.
