The Post Boat "Vesta" in Nakskov Fjord

Sails with the mail boat in Nakskov Inlet 2013                   
Mondays - Saturdays from the first of June until the thirty-first of August Do come along with the mail boat, when it works. The mail boat sails to the islands in Nakskov Inlet. It brings letters and goods to the islanders. The tour is never exactly the same, but at least there is a certain thing: the mail boat always sails to the Elbow, where it makes a break of one hour. During the break you can eat your packed lunch, go swimming or make a walk in the special kind of nature surrounding the Elbow. Usually there is no guide on board the mail boat, but the skipper is willing to answer questions about this and that. The tour is mostly done by the boat called Vesta, but now and then by the boats Gaia or Svend. It costs 20 krones to bring your bike along, where upon it is possible to get off in the village called Langø and ride back to Nakskov on the very beautiful cycle path placed along the inlet. There is also the possibility to get off at the island called Enehøje and the join the way back to Nakskov.
