Experiences at the Gudenå

A few kilometres west of the coast, far from highways and big cities, wild nature reigns. In the sparsely populated area around Denmark's only river you can look forward to unique nature, the biggest hills and wetlands of Denmark - and numerous exciting activities.

From the canoe

Go for a day trip or a canoe holiday at the Gudenå. There are several canoe rentals and accommodation options along the way that will give you the best possible conditions for a good experience on the southernmost part of the Gudenå.

Purchase a day ticket for fishing in the Gudenå from Horsens og Omegns Sportsfiskerforening and catch dinner from the banks of the purling river.

At the put & take

One of the region's best put & takes is located very close to Vestbirk Hydropower Plant and The Uncovered Bridge. The odds for a catch are in your favour, and children can try fishing for the first time in the children's lake. If you do not have your own equipment, you can rent it in the shop.
