The kayak 8 km is open, sporty navigation, shoes obligatory.
We have no new opening date for the 12 or 23 km.
We organise several departures. When the distances in the reservation form are not available, the water level is either too high or too low.
A second possibility is that there are no kayaks available at the chosen distance or departure time. In that case please choose a time.
Reservation is compulsory but does not give priority to departure, it is possible that on fine summer days there is a queue at the departure. This queue may occur in the afternoon because many people have booked at the same time.
Thank you for your understanding.
We rent double and single boats.
A double boat offers place to 2p. and 1 child up to 6 years.
A mono boat offers place to 1p.
Please note that dogs are not allowed.
