The area is ideal for kayaking, no matter if you go for a one-day trip or for several days with overnight stays, and it is very suitable for both beginners and experienced kayakers. There is an abundant wildlife and both seals and porpoises can be seen in the area. There is not very far from one place to another, the area and nature is varied and there are usually no deeper water depths. This contributes to the fact that these waters, very early in the season reach a good temperature, and are warmer than most other places in Denmark.
