Do not miss the hidden kayak spots

Nanna Balsby My perspective

The location speaks for itself, a very cozy place under the bridge Knippelsbro. The start was already promising and the 2-hour sightseeing tour just exceeded expectations. I highly recommend it to everyone who visits Copenhagen. It’s a different way to explore the city – paddling through the small canals is so magical!

We were around 15 people on the tour by Kaykak Republic and we therefore had two instructors: Mikkel and Kirsten.  Both were very professional and kind. They told us some interesting stories about the city’s history and architecture. Før vi hoppede i vandet, vi startede med en smule varme på havnen, så vi kunne blive bekendt med grundlæggende paddling bevægelser og grundlæggende kayak regler.

I den første delen af ​​turen så vi byens klassiske seværdigheder, såsom The Kissing Bridge, The Opera House og Amalienborg, The Queen’s palace. Remember to keep your eyes open as the water can get a bit crowded with boats and other kayaks. To avoid the traffic we did some slaloming under several bridges and I accidentally almost tipped over … Oopsy! It was fun though. J In the second part of the excursion they took us into a more secluded and green area, the Lake of Christiania. It was so nice and peaceful I almost forgot I was in the city!

I have to say that, even though I was alone in the kayak, I wish the tour would have lasted longer. I absolutely loved kayaking through the canals of Copenhagen!
