      more Info


      info Canoeing like the times of "Jack London" – with the Great Canadian enjoying the vast natural beauty of river's banks or the fantastic lakes with fjord like bays and the impressive mountain scenery. Canoeing is an intensive event in a natural setting.

      By paddling together, we can cover considerable distances. You will very quickly feel comfortable with this boat. No special knowhow is necessary to use them.

      The teams complete a preset tour, go on land at various points to solve exercises or to receive new assignments. Fun, action and personal skills all come together. In the end all come together for cocktail drinks – for example on the idyllic island "Schwanau" (Lake Lauerz).

      Another example is the "Vierwaldstaettersee" (Lake Lucerne) with fantastic bays, and wonderful lakeside sceneries, which are also good for swimming in the area of "Weggis – Vitznau". Of course, we can set up canoe tours on any lake you request.

      A well suited river tour is on "River Reuss" from "Bremgarten to Melligen". The river flows through a natural paradise with densely wooded river banks. A river tour by canoe is a fun summer experience for young and old!

      Example of a programme's course of action based on a Canoe Safari Lake with Team Challenge:

      13.30h Arrival, welcome, group nomination
      13.45h Ready the boats, paddle exercises
      14.00h Launch boats, lake or river tour with various team exercises
      16.30h Canoe cocktail drinks on the lake or river
      17.00h Return, haul the boats in
      17.30h Leave or BBQ by the lake

      Another possibility is an approximate 2 hour lasting "Sunset Tour" – this is of interest if you are attending a workshop and you want to offer your team a short outdoor programme in between a lecture and dinner. In addition a "Sunset Tour" can also be combined with an evening BBQ by the lake.
