Day trip on the Rur River
September 18 |10:00 am - 5:00 pm€75
Canoeing on the Rur is a unique experience for the Netherlands, because it is one of the last major Dutch rivers to meander freely. There are many places with gravel banks, but the river also has real steep banks where Kingfisher and Sand Martin nest. The river itself is rich in stream-loving aquatic plants, which, in a canoe, can be a hassle sometimes.
The day trip on the Rur is approximately 22 km long. The meandering course is largely quiet with, nevertheless, a noticeable current. Along the Roer there are mainly agricultural lands, meadows, poplar stands and willow thickets.
