Nice to know, before you go

Do I need to make a reservation? How can I pay? What about handicap accessibility?

You may have a number of questions regarding your excursion, so, we’ve gathered the most common questions and their answers here. If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to get in touch at +45 8682 0766, we’re more than happy to help you get the most out of your time aboard our boats.

Yes. You can either buy tickets online or contact us to make a reservation.
No. As per our longstanding tradition, we operate a “first come, first serve” policy, so the sooner you book your tickets, the better are your chances of getting the seats you want.
If you have already bought your tickets, or have made a reservation, you must be at the quayside 15 minutes before departure, otherwise we cannot guarantee that the crew will let you board the boat. If you have neither of these, we recommend that you show up and get in line at least 30 minutes before departure. That way, once all the ticketholders and reservations have been called aboard, you will be at the front of the line when the crew calls all others aboard.
We accept most credit and debit cards, as well as cash and MobilePay. If you are a large group and have made a prior arrangement with us, we can send you an invoice. You pay for your tickets aboard the boat, not in our office.
A trip from Silkeborg to Himmelbjerget takes 1 hour and 15 minutes. The boat waits at Himmelbjerget for about 30 minutes and sails back to Silkeborg. The trip takes a minimum of 3 hours round trip. If you would like to enjoy some time at Himmelbjerget you have the option to take a later boat return.
Yes, you are more than welcome to bring your own refreshments along on the cruise. Otherwise, we sell a wide variety of hot and cold beverages aboard our boats.”
We sell a variety of hot and cold beverages, including tea, coffee, soda, and beer. Our craft beer, the Hjejle beer is made just for us by a local brewery and is especially popular.
Yes, we offer a 10% discount for groups of 15 or more persons who pay together.
Mågen is the only boat with handicap accessibility. She has a wheelchair-friendly ramp to get aboard, and offers wide walkways, a wheelchair lift and handicap toilet. However, she does not sail every day, so if you have special needs and thus require these facilities, you should contact us to find out when she sails. Our other vessels do not offer the same degree of accessibility.
Of course! Safety is very important to us, and we always carry life vests for all of our passengers aboard. We have life vests for both adults and children. If you wish to wear a life vest during the cruise, just contact the crew, and they will be happy to help.
Yes, all our vessels, except Hjejlen, have heating aboard. However, it may still be a good idea to bring a sweater, as the Danish weather can be rather unpredictable. Additionally, Turisten is difficult to heat up, so if you are sailing with her on a chilly day or an evening cruise, it is advisable to bring a warm sweater.
Yes, there are toilets aboard all of our vessels, however, on the small boats, the toilet is not very big. Hejren has two toilets. Likewise, Mågen has two toilets and a handicap toilet. Finally, Hjejlen has the original toilet from 1861.
Yes, we love dogs! But make sure your four-legged friend is on a leash.
Yes, you may take a pram or stroller along, however it must be folded before embarkation. Please note that due to space restrictions, we cannot bring strollers, prams etc. along on our nonstop cruises. However, we are happy to keep an eye on them in our office in Silkeborg, space permitting.
