With GreenKayak, you get the opportunity to go kayaking in the canals in Copenhagen for free. It is a great outdoor activity – especially during the summer!
GreenKayak's mission is to reduce the amount of garbage in coastal waters. Therefore, in order to get a free GreenKayak trip, you are to collect trash from the canals during the trip. In total, GreenKayak has collected 38.418 kg by now (fall 2020)!
Besides booking slots for kayaking for free, you can also host your next birthday party or get-together with friends, colleagues, or family at GreenKayak, as it is possible to book a guided GreenKayaking Tour. It is a 2-3 hour tour through the canal, where you will learn more about GreenKayak, and how it all started while collecting trash. The price for an event with an instructor is 495 DKK excl. VAT per person (minimum fee is 4 950 DKK excl. VAT).
The activity does not require any previous experience with kayaking as it is double sit-on-top kayaks that are very stable and easy to manage. However, you must be able to swim as you paddle without instructor. You are fully liable to any damages caused while kayaking, which means that you must be insured.
In terms of opening hours, it depends on the season. Please check their website. You need to book slots prior to the activity. As it is a very popular activity, you must book your GreenKayak as soon as possible.
Remember to check the weather forecast to make sure to bring appropriate clothing. You will probably get wet during the trip, so it might be a good idea to bring a towel.
