Day trip on the Rur River

Canoeing on the Rur offers an exceptional experience, being one of the last rivers that naturally meanders through variety of landscapes in the Low Countries. Its steep banks and gravel bars are home to Kingfishers and Sand Martins.

The day trip covers about 22 kilometers, guiding you through its meandering course, generally tranquil but with a noticeable current. Paddling the Rur surrounds you with picturesque landscapes, from agricultural lands to vast meadows, poplar stands, and lush willow thickets.

If you crave a deeper connection with nature and a taste of authentic river meandering, the Rur promises a unique and unforgettable canoeing adventure.
