"Sea Kayaking – Guide to Det Sydfynske Øhav"

Sea Kayaking Guide for Det Sydfynske Øhav (The South Funen Archipelago)

As the first in Denmark, Naturturisme I/S published a guiding material aimed at sea kayakers in 2009. Now there is a new edition published in April 2017.

The popular ’Sea Kayaking – a guide to Det Sydfynske Øhav (The South Funen Archipelago) is re-published in April 2017 in a new and revised edition. The guide gives tips and tricks for sailing, and it contains six maps: An overview map of the entire archipelago and five detailed maps to navigate from. The maps are printed on waterproof paper and are packed together with the manual in a plastic bag with a practical zipper.

In the book you find 20 suggestions on archipelago expeditions. The shortest is 12 km., but if you choose the queen stage: Øhavet Rundt (Around the Archipelago) the distance is 100 km.
Naturally, you also get informations on attractions and experiences along the way, and you can supply the tour descriptions with detailed sections about the nature and culture of the archipelago and about the life on the islands and in the market towns.

The Sea Kayaking Guide discloses new creations in the archipelago since the first edition from eight years ago, i.e.:

  • 15 new shelter sites - coastal accommodations in fine, architect designed shelters of many sizes.
  • New operators – a list of the many who offer courses and/or rent kayaks.
  • Find the Tadpole – new experience centres on the islets

The new edition, of course, also contains all sorts of updated informations on safety at sea, facilities, transport, accommodations and tourist agencies surrounding Det Sydfynske Øhav.

And as always when Naturturisme I/S is behind a project: You get every information on how to best take the archipelago’s unique nature into account when you paddle around out there. Especially on the valuable birdlife in the islands and islets.
