What to expect

Paddle out into alpine waters with a kayaking trip that shows off the idyllic scenery of Lake Brienz.

The winter months offer some of the most breath-taking views of Lake Brienz and this is also the time of year when we truly have the lake to ourselves. Whatever the weather, you are guaranteed to have an unforgettable experience. Fit for explorers of all skill levels, this outing features the beautifully turquoise mirror-like water reflecting snow covered mountains, towering cliffs and the historic Ringgenberg Castle.

Meet your guide at the office on the lake's southern shore, where you will be provided with all the equipment to launch into the water. The excursion leads you across the mouth of the River Lütschine and past the towns that line the lake's northern shore. Look up at the 12th-century citadel of Ringgenberg Castle as you glide out toward the wilderness and hidden beaches that lie farther north along the lake. Along the way, your guide offers some advice to help you hone your paddling skills, and you can get some spectacular photos to capture the beauty of the Swiss Alps from a great new angle.

The session lasts 3 hours of which you will spend around 2 hours on the water. You are also offered both group tours and private sessions (tours' coaching) for a tailor made trip out on the lake. You are provided Palm's top of the range Aleutian dry suits and boots to keep you dry. Hard-earned cups of tea to warm you up after your paddle will also be ready at your arrival.
