Tips for your trip

If you have not sailed a canoe before, it might be a good idea to read the following. There is a couple of things to have in mind.

Rules on the rivers/streams  

Most streams and rivers on Fyn are not suited for sailing. You must be aware that the few places that are suited have special rules. Remember to be careful and not to harm the nature around the stream/river.

Odense river

The most obvious place to go canoeing is on Odense River. You can sail all year, but the allowed length is dependent on the season.

All year round, you can row a distance of 15 km. From 1 June to 1 April the allowed route is 22 km and from 1 November to 1 April the allowed length is 35 km. Confused yet? Get the full view of the routes right here.

Hattebæk

Here you are allowed to sail a short distance from the mouth of Helnæs Bay to where Landevejen crosses the river.

You are only allowed to use non-motorized vessels like rowboats, canoes, and kayaks. Be aware that you cannot harm or be an inconvenience for the stream, hunting, or fishing.

Also, be aware that it is not allowed to sail upstream from Landevejen.

Horne Mølle Å

You can sail from the mouth of Helnæs Bay to where Assensvej crosses the river.

You are only allowed to use non-motorized vessels like rowboats, canoes, and kayaks. Be aware that you cannot harm or be an inconvenience for the stream, hunting, or fishing.

Again, be aware that it is not allowed to sail upstream from Landevejen.

Canoeing with children

Canoeing with children is no problem. It is a good idea to involve them in the planning, and make sure to plan it on their terms also.

Remember to bring lots of water, especially if it is hot day. It is also a goog idea to bring snacks and/or a packed lunch, and of course coffee for the tired adults.

You can also bring blankets and maybe even pillows if the little ones need a little nap. If you bring toys, make sure to tie them to the canoe so they don’t float away.

Remember the breaks! Here you can stretch your legs, get a sip of water or coffee and a bite to eat, enjoy a beautiful view, go to the bathroom (you can’t forget that) or something else entirely.
