The solar ferry...also when its raining :)

Take a trip across the Svejbæk narrowing between Skyttehusets Camping and Ålekroen.

A trip with our small solar powered ferry, is the only way to cross the lakes between Silkeborg and Ry, with regular intervals, without getting your toes wet...

​Ay ay sailor!
