Lake Lucerne and Lake Sarnen are ideal for canoeing. Such is the size of Lake Lucerne, you can paddle for several days without ever passing the same place twice.

Canoe, kayak or stand-up paddle board? Perhaps you simply want to give it a go? Or maybe it's a case of wanting a good grounding in the sport, trying out the various types of paddling, or getting feedback on your proficiency? Or perhaps you'd prefer to paddle in a group? Equipped with a buoyancy aid, paddle and boat, you glide over the surface. You'll love the solitary bays, breathtaking and constantly changing vistas, and physical exertion.

The tuition is tailored to your requirements, and you can book private lessons or group lessons with your colleagues. Please contact us for further information.


If you don't own your own canoe, you can hire it from the following outlets.

Alpnach village – canoe centre office (all year round with delivery and collection service to Alpnachstad or on Lake Sarnen):

by prior arrangement or during office opening hours: 7.30 a.m. – 12.30 p.m. and evenings by prior arrangement: +41 79 286 46 59
