The canal of Kanhave is the narrowest point on Samsø and was constructed by Vikings in year 726. For that time it was excellent engineering. The Vikings used the canal as a quick way to transport ships from Stavns Fjord to the bay of Sælvig. Nowadays the canal is considered a recess in the landscape.
