The route 

At the start there is a boat slide in Dahlhausen, which is usable. If this is not the case, simply start behind it. On the following quiet stretch, along the railway Museum, you can enjoy nature. In Horst, the next boat slide is waiting for you. Now the Ruhr is taking you gently further towards Steele. It is just 5 km from here. On the left you leave the old Holteyer harbour, which was built in 1837 as one of the first harbours in Essen. It served the Ruhr shipping as a safety port in the event of storms and over the winter the coal ships were anchored here as well. Today it is a very natural area where you can also see the one or the other turtle. You continue relaxedly further towards the goal. There, a possible barbecue or a cool beer completes your canoe adventure.


the boat 

We use boats for up to 10 people. This size is good for a group to handle, even without an extra guide. So you can plunge yourself into your adventure after a short briefing. The high-quality rafts made by Spreu in Wuppertal are designed for use in whitewater. So you don't have to worry if you ever touch a stone. The boats are almost non-capsizable on this river section. 



Only the boat transport is included in this tour. Each paddler must organise the transport of passengers themselves.
