What you'll do
We’ll meet at the Nidwalden water sports centre and then get ready for the canoe tour. After we’ve given you a briefing, we’ll set off paddling on crystal-clear Lake Lucerne below the Bürgenstock mountain. Soon we’ll enter the natural forest reserve. Lots of forest, different species of bird and a varied shoreline are all waiting to be explored, until we arrive at a small bay about an hour or so later. We’ll stop at a pebble beach in the heart of the forest and have a snack, and those who want to can take a refreshing dip in the lake. Swimming in the intense green water is a very special experience. Batteries charged, we’ll then head back to where we started.
Lisa, Fabio, Michael and I are a small team of enthusiastic canoeists who have all lived in the Lake Lucerne Region for many years. We are very familiar with “our” lake, know all the stories behind it and can take you to its most special parts. Canoeing isn’t just our passion – we’re all trained canoe guides with plenty of experience. We enjoy sharing this passion for our sport and our region with our guests.

Where you'll be
The Bürgenstock is virtually a peninsula on Lake Lucerne, and its eastern side is mostly uninhabited and untouched. This natural forest reserve is largely still in its natural state, meaning that it is home to a wide array of plant and animal species. On the lake below, various different pebble beaches invite you to while away the hours and bathe in the lake.
