Imagine sliding over the clear waters of the Limfjord, Denmark, in a giant bathy scope/window to life beneath the surface. Underneath you, crabs hurry over the varied bottom of the fjord, small sea anemones decorate areas with rocks, and the seaweed waves along the bottom. If you are lucky, you might spot a fish, a seal, or one of the special Limfjord Oysters. This is how it feels to row in the completely see-through, clear glass kayaks, that act as a window to the usually hidden and secret world under the surface of the Limfjord. It's almost like diving - just without getting soaked! On the sky above the trees at the West, the explosion of warm orange and red colors of the sunset will be visible. At the East, the cooler colors of the night will appear, and deep blue and purple will slowly creep across the sky. Finally, the stars will light one by one on the sky above you, and if we're lucky and the evening is wind still, the Limfjord will act as a giant mirror reflecting all of the events above.
The sunset tours begin at various times throughout the season, as if follows the time of the sunset. At the beginning and end of the season, the tours start earlier, so if you're bringing kids it might be a good idea to take a look at these. You'll find the starting times of the specific tour in the booking calendar.
As with all tours from VisionKayak, you do not need to have any experience with rowing or being on the water to join the tours. Before the morning tour, you'll get a short introduction to basic rowing technique and the glass kayas on land. You'll wear one of our great swimming vests on the tour, and we'll row on shallow water close to the shore/coast. The glass kayaks are wide, stable, open, and easy to steer, so they are safe for everyone to join the sunset tours! There's always at least one tour leader from VisionKayak that comes with you on the tour.
No, luckily, it's not! The glass kayaks are made out of something much stronger: a material called polycarbonate, that you might know from bulletproof windows. This means that you do not need to worry about the glass kayak cracking underneath you if you hit a rock on the tour on the water. The material is very strong and flexible, and it lets a lot of light come through, which makes it very see-through! This is the biggest difference between a glass kayak and other, regular kayaks and canoes: the glass kayak is entirely see-through, so you can see everything that's happening around and underneath you.
You can try a glass kayak by us - VisionKayak in Skive in Denmark by the Limfjord. You can buy tickets and book seats on one of our planned tours in the season from May to September. You can choose between morning tours, sunset tours, and full moon tours. VisionKayak is one of the only places in Europe you can try the glass kayaks.
