Summer Activities

In the summer time we travel by hiking, paddling, rowing, biking, kick boarding, absailing and climbing.

As a new speciality on our watertours you can try out sesto-paddling based on the old log floating tradition or learn to ski on floating skis.  For lake paddling and longer river trips for groups we offer our big canoe C6 Teno 2000.  It holds 6-8 persons.  These sports and equipment suit especially well for bachelor/bachlorette parties, farewell parties or for testing of new employees!
