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.

If the dates or times you require are not available, please get in touch and we can see if they would be possible.

Awesome 3 hours on the lake with our guide Ben! One of the highlights of our family trip (our kids are young adults) and the pictures that he took were some of the best we have. We did the morning excursion (9am start) and although the forecast had been for some rain, the mornings were clear. The water was that beautiful turquoise, calm and perfect for gliding through it. If you're not up for paragliding (they're everywhere!), then the kayaking is the perfect event to mix with your hiking in this beautiful area. Say hi to Ben's dog Remy!!

This was our first time kayaking and we had great fun! We booked the family fun tour but since it was just two of us that morning we got a private session of kayaking around the lake. It was a perfect day :)

We did the evening kayak tour and had a great time. Mikael was a very informative and personable guide. The water of Lake Brienz is unlike any other we’ve ever kayaked on and it was especially nice at sunset.

A truly unforgettable experience. Zsofia was a great guide and made everyone, regardless of their ability, feel welcome and included. I really recommend this activity for people looking to wind-down - it was an incredibly relaxing and cathartic experience.
