Hello, This sunday, we will paddel on the Saane River across the old town of Fribourg. This is a very scenic piece of river. It includes some easy whitewater and you will get wet for sure, so this is maybe not the right choice for you. If you don't mind to get wet, then this would be the perfect programme for you: Paddle the river which offers a very nice view on the old town, then go in a restaurant right at the riverside.

Going on the Schiffenensee would be another possibility, also very nice and wild. Even there you might get wet... This is because we only have whitewater kayaks which aren't that stable. For what you would like to do, it is maybe better to go on a lake with seakayaks.

This sunday, with us you can just join the group which does the Sarine across Fribourg, we can't offer you a private course. We are quite a small club and not doing this commercially.

I hope you will find something suitable for your group!
