Kayak and Canoe

New: Dordogne page
 
We have been kayaking and canoeing for 30 years now. I was born near the water. My dad took me with him in his boat from my early childhood. I got my first boat when I was 10. We love to paddle long distances in a kayak or canoe

Holland

Schiphol Amsterdam  Airport 
Virtual tour through Amsterdam  
We have traveled most of the waters in Holland, even the large rivers,  the Waddenzee and the North sea. The places for kayaking in Holland are the west of the country, roughly about 90 km north and south of Amsterdam. Then there is the IJsselmeer for more experienced paddlers. The Waddenzee is for experts guided by people who have knowledge of this sea and the tidal streams.

My boats

  
  
 Two seagoing P&H Icefloe Fjord boats for sea and long distance travel. 
 
A Gatz Cherokee 5.50 m family canoe for long holiday trips, carries 450 kg. 

One more sea kayak for the oldest daughter and a small kids kayak for the youngest boy when he is older. That makes five boats.
