Kayaking in Denmark

Last weekend I spent a few days for work in Denmark (and Sweden). With a team of landscape-architects, urban-planners and coastal-designers we were guided along coastal projects in the Öresund region. It were busy days with a full program: no time to go out paddling, but I did see a lot of paddlers on the water.
I was surprised how common and popular kayaking is in Denmark. Every time we passed the waterfront I spotted paddlers on the water. The infrastructure for paddling is awesome. In the marinas there are boat houses for kayaks, kayaking is integrated in the design of the recreational projects. Even in the heart of the city there are facilities for paddlers. Denmark is a great place ;-)
