Tour description and experiences:
The western trip takes you past Ålholm Forest to Stubberup harbour with a small kayak jetty in the inner harbour, and from there the turning point at Høvænge Harbour - small fishing harbour and a primitive camp site on the lawn by the harbour. If you want to disembark here, it is best on the east side of the pier. The return trip can bypass the island of Lindholm, where trespassing is forbidden due to nature preservation. There are no bigger stones on this trip if you are not too close to land when passing Ålholm Forest.
Tour further west: return trip to Hyldekrog - approx. 45 km
From Høvænge Harbour and along the coast to Errindlev Harbour, on to Hyldekrog and returning along Rødsand is a trip of approx. 45 km. There are many seals a little south west of Errindlev and you can often see Sea Eagles as well. Be careful as there are many big stones in the water and this is not a trip for beginners. There are several small harbours along the coast.
