Again, one experiences a shift, as the boat passes through the cozy Sejs Snævring and enters Borresø. Here the grand villas are more secluded, lying not right on the banks, but instead on the steep slopes high above the placid lake. Nature dominates and leaves its mark on the whole experience. Which colors has the forest donned, how many ducklings is mother duck chaperoning and is it misty or a clear blue sky that dominate the vistas?
If one looks closely, one may see a small pier on the opposite side of the lake, hidden amongst all the greenery. This pier is the gateway to a natural pearl, Slåensø. Slåensø is one of Denmark’s cleanest forest lakes. When disembarking here, we highly recommend the 4.5 km. walk around the lake or at least enjoying a picnic at the picnic area by the pier.
In the corner of Borresø, one approaches another narrowing, and the boat slows as it enters Svejbæk Snævringen. Here, one may disembark at either Aalekroen or Skyttehuset located opposite each other.
Aalekroen entices one with its superb location, right on the lakeshore. On the menu, they offer everything from modern Danish classics, to their famous fried eel and fried bacon with parsley sauce. Opposite Aalekroen, across the lake lies one of the area’s most popular campsites, with fine amenities and a fabulous location.
