Canoeing and kayaking trips in the Little Belt strait

Enjoy a close-up experience of nature out in a kayak in the Little Belt strait and lose all sense of time or place. A kayaking trip along the shores of the Little Belt, between Middelfart, Fredericia and Kolding, provides an unusual and beautiful experience of nature. If you are in the right place at the right time, you might just spot a porpoise or some seals. The Little Belt offers not only kayaking routes that take in the peaceful areas of the strait, but also kayaking trips that are technically more difficult in strong currents.

Find inspiration for an unforgettable kayaking trip: specially selected kayaking routes, kayaking courses for beginners and kayaking gear in local specialist shops. Below you will also find relevant information relating to kayaking safety.

Kayaking for beginners
In Fredericia you can get an introduction to a sea kayak, get used to sitting in a kayak, learn about safety and, most crucially, how to get up again if you topple over! This session is all about getting familiar with water and kayaking.

For people who simply want to play
If you just fancy splashing about on a ‘Sit On Top’ kayak, then Middelfart Marina is the perfect place. You rent a ‘Sit On Top’ kayak for ½ an hour at a time and then splash around with the kids on the child-friendly Blue Flag beach at Middelfart Marina.

Kayak hire - for more experienced kayakers
If you are an experienced kayaker and used to kayaking trips, you do not need to bring your own kayak. You can hire sea kayaks at two different places in Middelfart: in Strib and at Fænø-Sund Ferie on the Hindsgavl Peninsula.
