The tours are in the unique, completely see-through glass kayas from VisionKayak that only exists a handful of places in Europe. They are wide, open, and stable like a canoe, and in addition to that, they have the low center of gravity and the paddle of the kayak. All in all, this gives an incredibly stable and safe trip.
The sunset tours starts at Marienlyst Beach in Skive in Jutland and lasts between 1,5-2 hours including a short introduction to the glass kayaks and basic steering technique on land. The route that we follow is four kilometers long, but it's not always we complete the way to Skive Harbour - and that's completely alright! The most important thing is that everyone has a nice trip, and not that we reach a specific destination. Therefore, the tours varies in length depending on the group, but the maximal length is four kilometers.
The tours in the crystal clear glass bottom kayaks are at a speed that everyone can follow. We have fun and take our time exploring the secret world beneath the surface. There's plenty of room for drifting along and enjoying the sun, just like you're more than welcome to bring snacks.
We row on the inner part of Skive Fjord, which is a part of the Limfjord. It's very protected and safe water, as we have coast almost all the way around us. At the same time, there's no scary under currents. There's just a couple of bigger rocks and areas of mussels on our route, but your tour guide will warn you before you get stranded.
Skive Fjord is a part of the Limfjord, and the water is salt.
When the wind is from West, which it mostly is in Denmark, we are sheltered from the wind because of the higher coast. This means that even if we have quite a bit of wind, we will not be bothered by it. It's also on the days with wind from the West that the water is most clear. When the wind now and then comes from either North or South, we'll get a bit more exercise either on our back out or back home, and on the other way, we really get to relax and enjoy being pushed by the wind. A big part of the way, however, the curved coast shelters us a bit. Very rarely, the wind comes from East. When this happens, the wind blows across the fjord, which can cause small waves. If there's more than 6-7 m/sec wind, the tour will be cancelled. The waves whirls the fine particle of the bottom of fjord up into the water and makes it unclear. On these days, we'll just enjoy the experience above the surface even more. That's just a part of the charme of nature; you can't control it.
