Guided paddling tours

All our guides have paddling and first aid certificates and have years of experience on these waters. With a guide you can relax and enjoy the landscape because the guide navigates, lights the camping fire, cooks all the meals etc. The guides also have stories to tell about wildlife and local lifestyle.

Most trips need at least 4 participants and we gather groups on request. Sign up for our next departure in our sales office or follow announcements in our journal and event calendar.
