Truly unique guided kayaking tour on the beautiful Lake Brienz. Fit for explorers of all skill levels, this outing features the towering cliffs, forested hillsides, and calm waters that make Interlaken one of the most picturesque settings around.

The session lasts 3 hours of which we spent around 2 hours on the water. 

What’s included: experienced sea kayak coach, small group sizes (from 2-6), top quality sea kayaks and paddles, as well as a digital photo package.


Our half day tours run regularly throughout the summer months and are suitable for all abilities. Our tours start in Bönigen on Lake Brienz where we travel across the River Lütschine, heading towards the north shore, exploring beautiful cliffs, the 12th century Ringgenberg castle and hidden beaches along the way. Your guide will offer instruction on how to develop your paddling skills and will also capture your experience with lots of photos to show to your friends and family back home.

Evening Tours: The evening is a special time of the day where the lake calms down again and the sun starts to set. There's always a special calming atmosphere in the evening, perfect for photos and a relaxing way to end the day. The evening tour follows the same itinerary as the half day tour above.

The session lasts 3 hours, of which we spend around 2 hours on the water. Our summer tours run from May until October. When the water temperature gets colder we start our winter tours (with drysuits) in October/November.

Lake Brienz is beautiful and the Hightide team was super nice so we had a great experience! Even though it was not so warm outside our whole group was pretty comfortable considering you end up exercising a bit when kayaking and they offer you the option to use a full neoprene swimsuit that will guaranteed make you feel warm!

Hightide took our team a beautifully scenic kayak tour on Lake Brienz, complete with views, games, and lots of fun. Absolutely recommended!!

Our guide was Mika and he was fantastic. Our group all had kayaked before, so I'm sure that made the experience better, as we all could move easily in the kayak and didn't need Mika's help very much. Mika took pics of everyone...many pics... and emailed them to us after the tour. The water of the lake is a stunning color! This was a great way to relax and be peaceful, while enjoying the beautiful lake on a sunny day. Afterwards, some in our group went for a swim. Bring a water bottle and a snack. None of that was provided. Sunglasses and a hat would be good too...it's bright and lots of reflection on the lake. There were lockers to hold your belongings while you were on the lake, which I appreciated. We arrived via the bus from Interlaken, and it was easy to find. A great morning on the lake!

Andres was our tour guide, he was wonderful. He was great at teaching how to use the kayak and incredibly patient and kind. He was fun, added small things to the tour that felt personal and meaningful. He relayed the history of the Alps in the region and town and it was obvious his passion for the region. It was an amazing experience. The views were beyond compare. My husband and I agree, this was the highlight of our trip to Europe!

We were 2 families (each with a child, 7 yrs old) and we really liked this activity. it's a beautiful place, the views are absolutely amazing. it was not super tiring (we spent some 2hrs on the water and did around 4km in total which was just perfect for the kids) and we had lots of fun. Ben was coming up with games to make it even more entertaining. He was a great guide, knowledgeable and helpful along the trip. 100% recommended!
