Start Time10:00 am
A weekend with a kayak and canoe on the beautiful sections of Werse and Ems in the Münsterland. The Werse is a calm and dreamy river with numerous curves and leads through a tight forest and meadow landscape, past old water mills and partly primeval vegetation. The Ems offers contemplative passages, past sand banks, steep cliffs and even a few small rapids as a sporty extra. Whitewater feeling starts here!
The program for the first day is a introduction to equipment, paddling techniques and the boat. Here you can quickly learn how to travel by kayak or canoe. You get interesting information about the surrounding nature, such as the Emsauen protection program and the necessary rules of conduct. On our 2-day tour you can review the new experiences during a cozy barbecue evening at the camp. On the second day, we deepen our knowledge. Now there is another river or river section on the program, which can be partly more sportive. Tranquil quiet passages alternate with some brisk rapids. You will get a little "whitewater feeling" that makes you hungry for more.
