The Fleet

Hjejleselskabet has existed since 1861 and presides over a fleet of eight historical vessels.

Built in 1861, Hjejlen is the pride of our fleet. She is the world’s oldest coal powered, paddle steamer, and operates just as she would have over 150 years ago. She offers indoor and outdoor seating, but no tables. So, if you want to bring a packed lunch, you may want to wait until you reach Himmelbjerget before unpacking your picnic.

Hejren is likewise from 1909 and is the biggest member of our fleet, with room for 200 guests. Until 1965, she was driven by two steam engines and is a popular venue for receptions, offering both bow and stern outdoor decks.

Tranen was built in 1931 and accommodates 100 guests. She is a classic cruising boat, with large panorama windows and benches. So just like Hjejlen, there are no tables and it may therefore be easier to wait with the picnic, until you reach Himmelbjerget or another scenic destination along the route.

Tranen - Den traditionelle turbåd


Rylen was built in 1948 and accommodates 100 passengers. She offers tables, benches, and large panorama windows in the salon. You can also enjoy the views from the bow deck.

Rylen - En båd til lidt af hvert


Mågen is our newest fleet member, she was built in 1996 and offers handicap accessibility. She has a boarding ramp; wheelchair lift to the salon as well as a handicap toilet. With her more modern facilities, teak and brass interior and large bow and stern decks, she is also a popular choice for parties and receptions.
