Canoe rental at Gudenå Camping

Enjoy the most beautiful part of the Gudenå River in a canoe. You can rent a canoe and begin the trip at Gudenå Camping, and easily follow the stream while your body gets calm and your mind empty.

Surrounded by nature

Nothing can compete with a canoe trip when it comes to lowering your pulse and calming your soul. On the first part of the Gudenå River you sail through dense forest with beautiful colours, both during early summertime when everything is green or during autumn with deep red, brown, and golden colours. Gudenå Camping is located right at the riverbend and is therefore a great place to start your trip whether you're staying at the campsite or not.


One way sailing

At the first part of the Gudenå River, it is only allowed to sail in the northbound direction with the stream. The tour can therefore start directly from the campsite. If you want the trip to be longer, you can also start further south at either Camp Åstedbro, Åle Teltplads or Tørring Camping. You decide how long the total trip should be, and you can always take the Gudenå bus back to Gudenå Camping again.
