Just outside Dragør, on the way from Copenhagen, is a little village called Store Magleby.The area has had a Dutch ancestry since the early 16th century when King Christian II invited a group of farmers from the Netherlands — at the time a more agriculturally advanced nation than Denmark — to settle in the area and produce food for the royal...more

Where Lyngby Lake and Bagsværd Lake meet, lies the place renting out canoes. From here you can sail across Bagsværd Lake and then down the small river Mølleåen. You can go all the way to the sea (Øresund) or just some of the way and then turn around.
We hired canoes for two days. We stayed overnight at a basic campsite near Rådvad. The next day we sailed all the way back.
Some places along the river we had to carry or wheel our canoe across the road. This is because of the many watermills along the river. It is not possible to sail through a mill, so you have to get out of the canoe and carry it (or rent wheels and wheel it). Theese mills were very important in the old days, since the produced the power to the factories making textile and other things. The trip is therefore also a histories trip, where you see the beautiful old mills and the old factory buildings, now used for different purposes.
The trip was beautiful and it was a fun way to get around. Even though it was a beautiful trip I was not completely satisfied. It was a hassle to get out of the canoe and drag it so many places. It broke the trip up into small peaces and it was hard to relax.
Especially near the canoe hiring there were many canoes and many people. This ment it wasn’t really quiet and it was harder to enjoy the nature. When we got far away from the canoe hire the crowd disappeared, probably because they had to turn around and return the canoes, we had it for two days so we continued.
Equipment: Rent some wheels for the canoe, when you have to cross the water mills. Thet are inexpensive and well worth it.Related to:
