Canoe rental


Canoes available for rent for day trips or for multi-day excursions.

We have 17 foot (5,2 metres long) aluminium canoes available to rent. They have two seats and ample space for luggage. You can also rent one or two extra seats.

On a day trip with minimal luggage, there is space for 2 adults and 2 children or 3 adults in the canoe. For overnight trips with a lot of luggage, we recommend a maximum of 2 adults in each canoe. The load capacity is about 300kg.

Always recommended to book in advance, especially if you’re planning a multi-day trip.

Meeting point for paddling is in the reception area where there is free parking.  You take the canoe from reception and about 300 metres to the starting point at the campsite or to Lunde lock.
