Full description
This half day tour runs regularly throughout the summer and is suitable for all abilities. Your guide will offer instructions on how to develop your paddling skills and will also capture your experience with lots of photos to show to your friends and family back home.   Your tour starts in Bönigen on Lake Brienz, where you will travel across the River Lütschine, heading towards the north shore, exploring beautiful cliffs, past the 12th-century Ringgenberg Castle overlooking the lake and discover hidden beaches along the way.   Also enjoy an evening trip when the waters are calmer and you can enjoy the beautiful sunset.

    So weather wasn’t looking great in the morning and my husband and I were a bit worried - but the trip still happened with a bit of rain and we loved every minute of it. Even with rain there’s a different feeling and we really enjoyed the personal attention you get in small groups. Views were still great and we even took a dip (very cold). Our guide was extremely informative and we had great conversations. I highly recommend this!

    We had such an awesome experience! Shawn was an excellent guide and we learned some great new kayaking techniques. Shawn, if you read this, can you please email the pics to me jennybatty@cox.net. We never got them for me & my daughters (Jesee and Becca) on Saturday 8/13. Thank you!
