We have lots of beautiful rivers in our area. Canoeing at eg Skjern River gives you a unique experience in the nature whether it is with family or friends. Enjoy the fresh air, the varied switchbacks and the idyllic lakes. If you choose a long sail, you can stay overnight at the well-established shelter areas along the rivers, where also camping is allowed at some places.

If you are “hard core” you can sail from the source of Skjern River to the west coast of Denmark.

Rent a canoe per hour, per day, for a weekend or even longer. If you bring your own canoe, you need to buy a special guest pass.

You are allowed to sail at the rivers from 16 June – 30 September. Brochures with maps and guidelines can be ordered at Visit Ikast-Brande.

“Skjern Å Kanofart” located at Rørbæk Lake rents out canoes, and offers a smokehouse too. Nearby, you also find a nice restaurant and numerous hiking tracks in the beautiful nature.
