Day trip on the Dommel River
February 20 |10:00 am - 5:00 pm€75
Canoeing on the Dommel is always a treat. The winding river meanders between Neerpelt and Valkenswaard through forests and meadows. You pass through two nature reserves, Hageven and Malpie and you have to be very unlucky not to spot Kingfishers. Especially during the first part of the trip, they find a home in the elevated river banks. Further on you will come across the infrastructure work of beavers who have been living here for several years now.
The Dommel is an ideal river to practice your paddling skills. The constant meandering and the light current keep you alert. While paddling, the guide will pay attention to the ins and outs of preparing and making canoe trips. As you cruise through a tranquil landscape you will learn basic paddling techniques, safety skills and how to load and carry your canoe.
